Pictures of my car I got last year


Recommended Posts

Hello  Keiser31.  we have talked within this forum.  I still need to learn how to transfer pictures.  However, if you take a look on the web  "Used 1936 Desoto Airstream for sale Orange City, Fl"  this is the car which has the split windshield we talked about.  I was able to get this car at estate sale about 1 1/2 years ago.  My son and I have been working on.  I am close to getting able to place pictures of the work that we have been doing.  Question please.  we have replaced freeze plugs, and yesterday I put water in block and I have a leak around two freeze plugs.  Any idea why.  I ordered on line for a set.  The only one that did not seem to fit was the small one on back end of engine.  Got it at O reily.  The two leaking are on the left side of engine.  Just wondering if I did not press them in far enough.  any ideas?  I know you said you had a couple of these.  Thanks for your time.

Did you put any sealant around the plugs prior to installation?

sorry for delay.  car is at sons house.  you were both right.  when I pulled them out i could see sealent bottom but so much top.  replace all but one.  guess what that one leaked later, replaced.  thank you for your help.  i only need to place tie rods on and place fork in bell housing, then it time to clean the car body.  again to you and JFranklin, who agreed with you.  i see you are in oregon, have you been getting a lot of rain like washington?  hope everything good.
