Well, I'm back at the '36. I've installed a new sediment bowl gasket, successfully. Then I went to Lethbridge to a swapmeet and bought a new hotrod wiper arm and blade. That is now installed and bent so it doesn't keep catching on the other wiper.
Now to boot this truck out to the shed, and bring in the next project.

Cool. All done. As a side note , do you know what size screws and thread pitch the screws that hold the windshield together are on your 36? I have to get one apart and I don't want to screw it up. The heads are broken off and I will be drilling and fighting these 83 year old buggers out.

Good question Kenny. They are the size that isn't made anymore. I think it is #12. You can order them through a vintage Ford parts store. Good luck.
You might think I'm crazier than I really am, Dr., but I'm going to walk right past the '34 Plymouth that's half done and bring in a '34 Dodge Brothers truck that's partly done.

I almost forgot that I should test drive my '36 Ford before I put it away 'til spring. So it got drove and it passed the test. The clutch is smooth in engaging and there doesn't seem to be any gas smell. The windshield wipers play together without fighting, now. Of course, they only acted up when it was stormy and we were going down the highway at a good clip.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

Thanks Mac. I don't want to drill them over sized and I need to find the right tap. Are you going start build threads on the Dodge and Plymouth?

Thanks Doc. for playing into my hand. Yes, I've got a five window coupe '34 Plymouth with a Baby Hemi and A833 NP four speed in the shop, almost half done. This car jumped into my lineup ahead of the '34 Dodge Brothers truck and stole the Hemi, four speed combo and the radiator that was supposed to go in the DB truck. Now that I had to do a bunch of work on the DB to run it in a play in town, I thought I would carry on and make it a rat to die for.
