Re: Installing a 1926 Radiator.

Yes . The new springs were to long. I used the old ones. I also preloaded the bottom spring as suggested. That’s the only way I could get enough thread to start the nut. All good now . Thanks for the help.

Re: Installing a 1926 Radiator.

Seeing a more clear drawing really helped. The lower thimble didn’t fit the hole drilled in the radiator flange . I had to ream it out. When I got the roadster the hood didn’t fit right . It was sitting up to high. Now I see why. Now everything lines up. Thanks.

Installing a 1926 Radiator.

Does any one have a clear view or cutaway showing the proper installation of a radiator on a 1926 T ? I have a Ford manual but the photos aren’t clear as to the correct layout of all the Layers of parts starting with the fenders on up to the crown nut.

Cleaning nickel safely.

I purchased a 1926 nickel radiator shell that was wrapped in rags and then wrapped in duct tape in 1979. The tape caused a stain on the finish that doesn’t wipe off. What product would be safe to polish it out? The staining is just dull areas.
