Location of wiring harnes in engine compartment

I am Installing a new wiring harness in my 1937 120C coupe convertible. I am trying to verify what is the location and route the wires take from the main harness trunk on the left side of the engine compartment to the right side of the car for the headlights and fog lights. The wiring harness I remo...

Wrinkle or crinkle paint

My 1937 120C 1099 should have a wrinkle paint finish on the heater, radio receiver and speaker. A few forum discussions have touched on the paint but can someone be more specific about how you get the correct finish and/or the paint to be used? I believe the color should be black. A close up picture...

I've reviewed dealer brochures, Operation Manuals and other sources but it is not clear if the one piece (combined speaker and receiver) or the two piece "Deluxe" (separate speaker and rece...

Re: Wiper motor and switch

You are right the knob when turned is threaded so it will move up and down which will push or pull the cable connected to the motor as well as open the vacuum flow thru the switch. By sucking on one tube (until I was about ready to pass out) and turning the knob I could tell there was a reduction in...

Re: Wiper motor and switch

Thanks again all. The switch is a separate mechanism with a knob you turn to pull a cable that is attached to the wiper motor slide valve. It also regulates the vacuum flow up to the motor since the vacuum line passes through the switch.. The switch is in the bottom lip of the dash and the motor is ...

Thank you for your very complete explanation. I will test the control valve under a vacuum only. I am sending the motor to Ficken but he(Rob) said they do not work on the switches. "Junk" was what I think he called them. It appears the switch is pressed together and I would likely destroy it to pull...

Wiper motor and switch

I have a 1937 120C Coupe convertible and am trying to understand how my wiper motor switch is supposed to function. The switch is a mechanism which I assume turns the vacuum flow off and on as well as via a cable connected to the wiper motor adjusts the motor speed. My car is not running so I can on...
