    Thanks!! I'm sure it's going to have some surprises for me when I get to digging into it like they all do.

    Going to try and get it running just to make it easier to move around... has some weird allstate spark plugs in it.. along with some water in the oil.. which I hope just come from sitting so long.

    Plugs are cool, well the whole car is. 1 - 18mm plugs would fit in a 1927' McCormick Deering throttler if your not going to use them. :rolleyes:

    :) I'll let ya know if I don't use them.. I wore brushed them to clean them a bit.. have some carbon in them but the electrode isn't all burnt off or anything

    That's the spirit. Cut that thing. Increase my value. Staying stock. Happy for you! Will watch for enthusiastic encouragement.

    Not sure if posting like this will work or it but after some tinkering the motor in the 36 is alive...

    Battery cable is to pricey so I went and bought a 20ft pair of heavy duty 2ga jumper cables.. cut them up to make battery cables...

    Took the wires off and cleaned /adjusted the points. Shot some oil in the cylinders and grabbed a left over carb I had..

  17. The 5 window was in a little better shape? Hell, this 3 window looks pretty perfect to me! Nice score (even if you snuck it out of Canada :p) I've always loved the lines of those 36's.
