Nice. I am sure she will love it. I like the three doors on the 33 hoods
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: cocobolo on March 03, 2014, 04:00:47 PM
Something else I like about the earlier hoods are those neat vents on the sides.  My '35 has those cheap looking vents that just don't quite look as though they are finished somehow.  But I guess in a car that only cost $485 in the first place you can't have everything.

Sounds like you are moving right along with the car.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: madmike3434 on May 30, 2014, 10:14:30 PM
I am not sure but I think MAYBE....rootlieb hoods in California might make the doored hood for 34--35 standards. 

They make the doored 33 and 32 chevy hood, why not a special order for a 34-35, never know till you ask ????????

http://www.rootlieb.com/chevrolet-hoods.html

I checked they do not list any 34-35 with doors, doesn't mean they cannot do it ?
One of the problems would be the interior center bracing for hood handle.  The spacing of the doors would have to be done to accommodate that , as its also a stiffener.

Speaking of which,  I have pair of their plain side panels and without the stock 3 long louvers the front 1/2 area of the side panel buckles inward when you turn the hood handle to lock it down.  To correct this I bought some lengths of 1/2" square aluminum and used a 3M panel adhesive 2 part to bond it too the hood panel.

 To do it properly you need the special application gun that's about $75 and special disposable tips.  This was not an in expensive fix !!!  Hopefully you could borrow the gun from a body shop who has one.

cocobolo=====you could always dress up the long vents by using stainless rod drilled and tapped to make it look like a 34 master. Not sure if they would be right length for a standard hood.

wood, who says chevys got wood ?

very nice wood work on the doors.  Never noticed a 34 master dash used in a 33 master before..........looks like it belongs and makes sense.  I have one in my 35 std coupe and modified one for my 35 standard roadster ( had to make it 2" wider )  !!!!

Hope you have the 3 die cast chrome spears in middle raised area of dash, as they are a pig to find for sale.  That area was also for factory cigarette lighter and center spear had hole in it to let wire run thru.

Filling a roof/ top opening...after searching for a station wagon or van top to use as a donor  with out any luck, I ended up with one from a salvage yard that had a flood sale. Paid   $32  for the top..i cut it off at the pillars so I would have the bracing if I need them, Photos are in the rough cut fitting stage
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: TFoch on June 17, 2015, 08:07:34 PM
Looks like it'll fit pretty good.  What vehicle did it come off of?
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: FATnLOW on June 17, 2015, 08:30:55 PM
Tom....  So far I'm happy with the fit,  it  laid down well... and  I thought 6 ribs might look odd but I believe I will like the look of the top..  I removed it from a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee, I  Still Need to cut it to length
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: FATnLOW on July 08, 2015, 04:58:43 PM
Top is welded in.... 1st round of filler in....Then a lot of blocking ..
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: sammons on July 08, 2015, 05:36:25 PM
Top looks real good FATnLOW.  I like the look of those flat top ribs vs the round top ones.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: 62131 on July 08, 2015, 06:01:29 PM
Fatnlow that roof looks great looks like it was made for it.  Nice choice.

Looks great, FATnLOW. I like those flat ribs too.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: madmike3434 on July 09, 2015, 04:20:13 PM
there must be a way to re-inforce the insert metal roof panel , so that it cannot flex with the wind.  Usually after a period of 5 years or so all that bondo starts to crack from the  welded insert.

I am thinking that using tubing or hardwood cross bracing right up against the roof panel might help alleviate a potential problem.

 Has anybody else noticed this problem on cars at shows??????????

Oh ya, the roof insert really looks good with flat tops

Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: 62131 on July 09, 2015, 04:44:13 PM
When placing something against the roof to help support it from the wind it also needs to be able to flex with the expansion from the heat also. 
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: EDNY on July 09, 2015, 05:04:29 PM
My plan is to run the metal bracing along the roof and leave about a 1/4" gap to be filled in with automotive spray foam.   Actually already framed my car....just need to foam it after I finish the roof....the spray foam needs to be firm but flexible.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: chopper526 on July 09, 2015, 05:05:47 PM
I used four lengths of "L" channel. I ground them to the curvature of the inside of the roof, fit them within a 1/16" to the roof and welded them to square tubing I ran around the perimeter and above the door openings. It helped stiffen up the entire upper section of the body and roof and the flat part of the "L" gave me something to secure the headliner to. I'm sorry but I have no pictures.

good replies, that's what I was hoping to see for members of this rusty bowtie community to help them build better cars/street rods thru innovation in techniques......

anybody else have anything to add..........?

Post by: FATnLOW on July 09, 2015, 08:50:56 PM
Bracing for the roof....In the front and back I cut a piece of flat stock the same arc  of the roof  hole and tack welded that roof to it. Then I used 1x3  tubing for the other 2 braces welded that to 1x1 sq tubing on the side that runs  from front to back . On top of the front  1x3  I used 3/4" pipe  foam wrap, opening it along the slit and  used spray glue to hold that in place (the donor roof had foam glued on the  rib brace to the roof that went from side to side) so I thought about using the pipe wrap insulation  Also used Liquid Nails  adhesive on top of the  foam  to the roof.
 On the next brace  I welded a 3/8 inch round stock to the 1 x 3  stock , and I'm going to glue more foam on the back side,
 Photo shows  plastic wire ties holding pipe wrap in place after I sprayed glue on ,,in between wire ties Liquid nails was used
 then I set the top on over the liquid nails

Post by: ghost28 on July 11, 2015, 10:31:49 AM
I really like that top on there. Nice work
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: 62131 on July 12, 2015, 07:12:36 PM
Here's how I did my flat roof bracing, I took some 14ga metal bent a 90 degree and placed it tight against the roof with a 1/2" bead of seam sealer and pushed it against the roof to aid in expansion. It is clamped into place waiting for the sealer to cure. Then I'm going to tack weld it to the cross bracing before removing clamps.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: sammons on July 12, 2015, 07:24:21 PM
That looks nice too, I liked FATnLOW's also. That was my thinking on the braces, I was thinking silicon gasket material, but seam sealer would work as well. Good job guys!

FATnLOW,  glad your finally getting better. My buddy Tom's doc tried all kinds of different pills for his summer allergies(every year) then finally tried some kind of steroid shot?, and knocked it right out. Haha, same with my dog, they would both start sneezing with in a week of each other (and the dog would get a rash on his belly).

I like your dash layout, and the a/c controls in side the glove box. Glad you were able to make use of the spears.

Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: themoose on October 23, 2015, 09:17:00 PM
I use one from Kugel. They have one for the 32 Chevy and it fit great. I didn't want to get rid of the stock front cross member so I notched it in the center and install the front end square tube in the opening and welded it all the way across and up the sides of the frame so it became an integral part of the cross member/frame. It's never gonna fall out . Here's a link..Give them a call and talk to Jeff the owner.

Am on ebay every day and sometimes go to the 32 section to see if any 34-35 parts misidentified.

   MIKE     I have no idea who these turkeys are that put up things on e bay I can not believe some of the adds like fits chevrolet pontiac ford must have also fits Rolls Royce what a$$holes.It either fits a 33 or 35 or whatever but it doesn't fit everything most these clowns sound like they are from slabovia
 vette59jdwl  thanks mike

  I had a set of 31 chevrolet rear fenders that were in perfect shape so i put them on the 32 for now
I also have a 31 trunk that is going on the 32 till i find the proper rumble seat lid.

People who list,  lets say a fender ,  have no idea exactly what it fits and by putting in multiple makes , are hoping somebody who is looking for rear fender for a whatever, that these fit their car, because the actual owner knows what they look like.

How many times have you had a part and could not identify it.  ??

They are not a$$holes from lower slobovia or middle slobovia or upper slobovia either, they do not know and are using a SPAM system by using multiple makes.     If you wish you can complain directly to ebay about the spamming.

I have people ask me all the time, do you know what this fits ??????  Sometimes its easy sometimes its impossible because its outside my interest zone.  I know 33--35 Chevrolets and not much about 31 and before and 36 and above.

Why ??  Because I have no interest in them.

Wayne here is a little test for you or anybody else..........
3---who makes the 16 valve valve covers that are 2 piece.
2---who makes the flagged tall & wide 2 piece covers
1---what motor do these valve covers fit

Moose,  I really like the way you retained your crossmember.

Mike i'd say they look like they fit sbc, (as they appear to be similar to the big two piece ones that my friend give me). I don't know who makes them though. I really like the finned ones with the crossflags. ;D
I found a similar Moroso set on ebay, yikes,  $1000.

They are LARSON ENGINEERING, first ones had the cross flags opening cast into the tops.  They were made for SBC and BBC.   Common are the sbc ones, hard to get is the BBC ones as they made only less than 50 pair I read somewhere. They were produced also by Moroso as induction engineering.

Total performance in Conn also sold them when they were repo'd by  D J BRANSON in fla.  Since then he sold the tooling and casting molds to a guy in ark or arz who has done nothing with them .  Also available for these was an air cleaner for holley or afb single or 2 x 4.  Looked like side draft webers.

Now that the one set, who has the answer to the other set of black 16V ones.????

nope the 16 valve rocker covers are not for any furren car, they are for a v8

while looking for another picture of them I came across this one. Its got a relocated distributor to front drive, the carbs are Ferrari on some weird intake manifold, toss in those 16 valve covers and mass confusion reigns  !!

And these valve covers fit ?????? a XXXXXXX motor

The valve covers are 2 piece and made by the GENNIE SHIFTER COMPANY, they fit small block chevy.  I have these on my 350 in 35 coupe.  People are always looking at them trying to figure out what the motor is.

There was another 2 piece valve cover made that was 7" wide also, LARSON ENGINEERING.  Made about the same time early 80's .  The larsons show up on ebay usa more frequently and sell anywhere from $400 to $1500 depending on condition.

All I have is the black walnut behind the gauges from the tree I had to cut down to build my garage.  I plan to do something with the heater controls at the bottom to match the gauges.  I don't have AC so I can't help you there.  Here's a couple of pics.  Hope you get your inspiration back.  You're at a point that each thing you get done gets you even closer to that first ride.  Keep up the great work!

Sammons.....Gonna  make the same style  of A/C pods like on your build.... But I feel that I need a  short  dash extension  to kinda tie in the a/c pod on the passenger side and a console for radio and some floor vents for the A/C  and what ever else that I need to put there.  The only obstacle I have is that I still want to use the cowl vent, so I will have to have some kind of opening in the console to access the handle. The drivers side is ok as the A/C pod meets the column  drop....So looks like i'll be making a lot of patterns from card board until I  like what I see.  I have a vision in my head of what I want now just getting it in a card board so I can build it

Ed, i ended up making an electric vent opener. Does your handle mount more to the center(like a 34 std), or to the outer drivers side? Reason i ask is i beleive i still have a 34' master LH mount handle that you are welcome to. It may move it futher the left to give a little more console area room.

Here is a pic of my old '34master with the handel installed. I wish i had a head on pic because this pic angel makes it look too far to the left.

  You know there is a electric cowl vent motor kit that can be purchased? I have found a little  12vdc gear motor and plan on making my own as I do not have enough room for the manual lever because of my a/c unit. The gear motor I found is like 2" Sq. and 10 rpm which if I did my math correctly it should open or close the vent in 3 seconds.

Sammons...My handle is in line with the left hole of the 3 that  are above the spears...I believe that if I move it to the drivers side I might get really close to my Tach gauge... and I looked at some linear actuators and found out that they are to large
 Steve.. Thanks for the offer if the cowl motor does not work out I may take you up on the unit

Ed I don't know where to get that one, but.... I saved these from a flip rear seat (Dodge Ramcharger or mini van 2nd/3rd row seats).  Mine are probably around mid '80's, but salvage yards may have some later model (cleaner) ones. You are welcome to any of these, but the chrome ain't the best and a few scratches.  Just a thought in case you can't find any.

When your at the salvage yard, don't over look all vans with seating. I thought there was one with stainless steel bezels on the floor, Ford Aerostar?
Both my old Ramchargers came from farmers and they flipped the rear seat up and hauled hay and feed outa the back, thus the scraped up bezels. You might be able to find a local bike builder that does small parts chrome in shop.

http://www.speedwaymotors.com/Search?query=drink+holders

Ended up with 11.8 inches of rain..the Lake is still 33 feet above normal they are releasing a small amount of water,in an effort as not to cause any more strain on the current flood situation down stream of the Dam.  Good thing i'm at least 110 feet above where the current water level is at now

I'll get it out in the garage and get a pic of the whole fender tomorrow.  With the pieces I used I may be able to cut it up and fit it in a smaller box than you think.  Hope it helps.

most people shipping fenders usually do it with greyhound bus lines.  those they will take, the 34-35 style with long tongue, the tongue is what puts it way over what they will take.

As I found out, had to get a fender freighted by tractor trailer from Oregon, cost $550.  was perfect fender and worth it.

After doing some of the on the  major bad spots on the fenders and sandblasting fenders...thought I  needed to shoot some primer on these fenders before the rust set in again.. got out this morning and  shot some High Teck Direct to Metal high build primer on the fenders , now the real work will begin in getting all of the small dents and scrapes and creases out...I don't claim to be a body man but I like doing my own work , and it saves me some $$$ ::)  Pics 1 and  Driver side fender ..  3 and 4 Pass fender
  Passenger side fender was the worst of the two  had  major dent above and to the left of pointed spear and  wheel well lip damages that need to be cut out and replaced in two places.....

Been working on the 33 ..what do you all think about the head lights...too small?? Do they fit the car suppose to be 1935??? Head lights but not for sure 

     Made the left side of the 'V" bar on bottom of the grille shell......was  broken and rusted out......was a tedious job to get all the reveal lines  to show up correctly.......getting tired of  body work  but still have 2 more projects  that require work
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: madmike3435 on March 28, 2016, 06:29:42 PM
I got similar size head lights on my 35, am using the guide B3 type with signal on top.  Been on there since 1970.  Beauty is that 7" sealed beams fit right in.

Stock 33 lights have a whole lot more size to them.  I have looked at the larger stock lights many times but never felt the urge to dig into wallet and buy them

MIKE...  That's what I liked about the  35 headlights...able to use the  7 inch seal beam...yours  look  like  the same  that I have so that being said it must be a  1935  head light....gonna have a mish mash of parts on this  car   33-34- and  35 chevy items


I have a spare set of head light bars if any one is looking for  a pair  for  '33 Chevy Master

Didn't want to spend money on running board mats...came up with this idea I had to try first.......this  is first coat of this bed liner product.. the next coat should level everything out and    blend the   first coat and conceal the  divots...was  worth the try for the money spent on the product

   Going to have enough of this product  left over I might   do the under side of  the front fenders .... just a thought
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: sammons on March 30, 2016, 09:27:28 AM
Heck that looks pretty good. Are you using the roll on or spray? I've used the spray (rattle can Duplicolor) on many things in the past with good results.  I painted a big rig for a guy and he wanted me to spray his steps and a non-slip pad on top of the rear fenders. It held up real well. Keep at it! ;D

This got me to thinking back what dad used to do. We always had late model totaled (70's) LTD's out back, he would cut that heavy pebble grain vinyl top off and recover his running boards.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: EDNY on March 30, 2016, 09:51:59 AM
I like that bedliner idea...plan on using it on portions of the front floor foot area of my 33 Chevy.  Some of that commercial spray on stuff can actually lay out about 1/4" thick if need be.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: FATnLOW on March 30, 2016, 02:37:21 PM
Steve....Actually I  used a paint brush on the first coat.   tack welded  the  mounting clips so they would not move .. then brushed that area a little heavier to build up that divot ..the next coat I will use a roller to level it all out...

1 piece hood for the top..and removable side panels..hinge rod on side pieces were a bear to get out.

smooth on top...but should have left  a rib ..got a little warp at the cowl end..if I  would have left a rib don't think it would have warped...when I welded I hammered and dolly all welds ,,guess I got it a little hot...it wil be a  3 pc. hood, with removable sides...
   still have to come up with side hood hinge.....getting tired of this hood project...might look into  Dan Fink hood latch system the 3 -way system...also I  like the Fast Forward hinge system.......but they are  $$$$
   also got the correct head light bars on...what a difference  on the fit..really happy with those  bars

There is a seller on ebay who was making "center of the top"  hood hinge assembly for 1933--1935, offered them in chrome.

Not sure about a 32 Chevrolet as I have not really looed at one.  Cannot remember last time I saw one at a cruise nite.

How about ROOT LIEB HOODS  out of California, he makes the hoods stock or 3 piece.  He might offer them with 32 ford center hinge ???  Check out his site and see what he offers.

Believe the ebay seller is AMERICAN MUSCLE who sells the stock chevy 33-35 center hinge.

BOWTIE REPRODUCTIONS in ohio specializes in 1932 Chevrolet parts.

  PK what i did was STUPID and i was in a hurry and not thinking  DAH should have just walked away DAH I was checking on measuring the frame for a friend and i grabbed the hood and lifted it all of a sudden it folded and twisted the center rib all the hang.I sprayed it about twenty times and tried like old get up to streighten it but no chance the side ones are ok but the center one is toast .so here is what i have been thinking mock up a 100 percent stainless steel hinge down the center mark it with a scriber then cut the old hinge out and put the S.S. Hinge in maybe spot weld it in a new hood is 1,950 bucks not costing taxes or shipping.OH and i broke the distributor shaft  has anyone done that OK i didn't do it the previous owner did     vette59jdwl

Tom, that's what it's all about.  I've given a lot of stuff away and have been given a lot.

Quick story- Back in 80-81,  the ol boy that has our local salvage yard was always high priced to me.  One day he stopped in the shop and and was in a bind needing  ET Uni-Lug washers for a customers car. I asked what model car, he said 4.5" Mopar. I went to my bins and asked him how many, he said 8. I grabbed them and handed them over. He asks how much, I said nothing....just take them. He looked shocked, thanked me and left. The next time I needed ANY thing, I got a very good price from him. Been good friends ever since! Now a days he usualy says ah...$5 or just take it. ;)

Ed, it may be just a bit warmer here.

Cool Ed. Where did you have it dyno'd at and what numbers did she pull? 
The last time I had the privalige was over at Steve Carbones shop in Tulsa. My buddy had him fresh'n up his 377 sbc for his '68 Z/28 drag car. Awsome sound in the room @9,200 rpm, and I stepped out @8,000. Can't imagine the mess if it let go!  ;D

Steve had a well known engine builder in this area that does a lot of  drag strip  and roundy round  motors ...Shinook  Engine builders in Tahlequah Ok....was going to go with aluim. heads but decided against it...I am satisfied with  the numbers...but not in my jingle account...but it's  ready to run.....

Had these Ram Horn headers from a build that I didn't use ...so I put them on the '33...problem is now the spark plug wire holders don't bolt up to the valves covers as the ram horns are in the way...so I thought of mounting them like this....now I have to make sure the wires don't hit the headers and burn up...is there any kind of insulation that is available that will slip over the spark plug wires? Don't want any thing that wraps on the wire....and again I my not have an issue with hitting or being close to the headers ...what you think if the way its mounted?....might just change the wires out and route the wires differently and not use the holders
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: ChevRon on August 20, 2017, 02:15:29 PM
      I run mine behind the head then down below the rear exhaust port and  come up to the plugs. Run the front two down  next the oil pan and use the oil pan bolt with adel clamp to keep them away from the collector , then run the front two  up thru and behind the engine mount. (Between the block and back of engine mount.) I try to hide as much wiring as I can. Hope I explained well enough. Ron

Post by: sammons on August 20, 2017, 04:06:55 PM
Your engine looks real nice Ed.   I've used both these Speedway spark plug wire insulators on various builds, especialy with headers.

Like Chevron said, run them underneath. The 60s stock Chevy routing, here is a pic. I've done this on most that I have stock type exhaust manifolds on and on my coupe as the sprint car headers pretty much go straight out for 10-12" before turning down.

Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: madmike3434 on February 02, 2018, 06:49:57 PM
for the tranny lines your going to want to run -6AN hose and hose ends........3/8"  Just the rubber lined should be good braided stainless or the new black fabric covered hose.    Talk to GODWIN ? to get right type.  Teflon is for brakes.

You may want to consider running an inline cooler , the finned tube shape type in aluminum mounted to the side rails.  Cuts down on the heat going into the radiator.

With that air con in front of radiator make sure you have a fan that can really pull air thru.  Fan has to work 2 times as hard to draw thru 2 units.

OK was in a discussion with a friend on in line trans cooler plumbing....I don't think there is one way to do it....what is the best way to route your trans lines....??? I was going to take the hot line to the radiator let the fluid go Thur the radiator cooler....exit radiator to frame mounted cooler then exit cooler to return side of transmission.....my friend was going to go thru cooler first then thru radiator ....exit radiator back to trans....any thoughts or opinions?????
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: sammons on February 03, 2018, 03:52:49 PM
Well Ed, we all know excesive heat kills automatics. But when my buddy went to school in the mid 80's, he had a real good trans instructor (also a racer), and he taught use the extrrnal first then go through radiator. He said that under some instances the external cooler could be too cool for proper trans opperating temp. By running through radiator last it you would be asured a normal temp before returning to trans.

Danged if I know but it made sense to me and the man could build a killer trans that held up to abuse.  ;D  So i've always done it that way.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: EDNY on February 03, 2018, 04:08:39 PM
I've read where it's a north/south thing...if you live in a consistently hot location you want the fluid entering the transmission cooled,,if you live in a consistently cold location you want the fluid entering the transmission warmed up ???

I do know the best external cooler is the stacked plate type.

That makes sense, with most people putting up their rides for the winter. I usually ran (or use to) year round. Maybe that was what he ment about "some instances".  Summer only or warmer winter  areas you go thru radiator first.

Agree on stack plate coolers, I always use Tru-cool. They had several gvw ratings available.

By using the heat conductor aluminum HEAT SINK is what they are called and running hot trans fluid thru it first you want to reduce the amount of cooling your radiator has to do to lower the temperature.  Anything you can do to lower water temps is good for the cooling system and the trans.   After a long discussion with a couple of really smart guys I know , it was determined going thru the HEAT SINK first was the best option.

I noticed you have an air con condenser in front of rad, theres a lot of heat being put thru the radiator with air con.   You really have to have a super fan that really can draw air thru the rad.  Me, I run a belt driven 6 blade deep pitch steel fan.  When a cloth diaper can be held to the grill of a 33--35 chevy with 350 SBC at IDLE, you know your not going to have trouble.

Wow, that RR rear fender had been beat up real good.   Your friend is making a great save.  Careful metal thickness is not reduced to un-workable.

Looks so much better than the way to wide glass fender.

Rather than applying bondo over top to finish , you could go old school with lead.  EASTWOOD sells kits to do it.

fender is getting there, good work so far.  Getting the break in the side bead done right ,  is critical to strength of the repair.  Make sure metal doesn't get thin and unworkable.

Good to see pictures of a repair sequence .

      Got to make mounting holes for tail light stand on the passenger fender..I figured  I would make a template from the drivers side and flip it over for the passenger side....any better suggestions??                                                            Got my LED tail lights in and look great and the fit is perfect on Chevi-shop (Greg Coleman's) tail light stand that he makes.

Steve..I don't think you'll have trouble with mirrors on your coupe...I tried 4" long mirrors and all could see was the B pillar. ..also had door clamp on peep mirrors on with no luck, I estimated they needed to 6+ inches to see the rear...at least with these i have a clear view to the rear.... Side note going to Branson to take in a couple of shows and get away....Photo of mirrors i tried left over from 40 Ford build

Post by: sammons on August 19, 2018, 10:50:47 AM
Ed,  i've been having a hard time finding a ride down to Branson to see mom. Had a buddy that was going to give me a ride maybe this week, but he sold a '67 Chevelle so he has to deliver it instead.

 I really enjoyed the cave tours @ Silverdollar City years ago. Now I just like the craftsman carving or the blacksmiths. When my grandparents moved down there in the early '70s it was still quite small with only 3-4 shows. South of Branson there was the School of the Ozarks museum, in the 80s dad and I spent half a day looking at the large gun collection they had. It got robbed a year after we were there and a lot was stolen.  Hope your wife and you have a good time!

A shot in the dark...but does anyone have a photo of  a rear view mirror for a '33 Chevy Master...I have  one that was in the car and in the process of de-rusting it and going to get a mirror cut for it.thought I would ask for a photo for comparison

Post by: madmike3434 on September 10, 2018, 04:55:33 PM
I cannot believe I do not have a picture of a 1933--1935 Chevrolet closed car rear view mirror in my files.  Even internet search could not bring one up, nor ebay.

I have an extra somewhere, if nobody else helps you out, will find it and take picture of it.  Am on road to USA first thing in morning to load my S10 in Rochester NY with all my ebay purchases  ( 24 ) since april.   Open Chevrolet .:   roadsters and touring's use diff mirrors.

The original colour of the metal was a caramel brown.

the clock mirrors that I have are 7 inches long in both the open cars and my coupe closed car.

Actually you can find a clock mirror repo for model A fords 1928-31 and 32--36 's at a very reasonable price on ebay.  I enjoy winding mine and setting correct time every time I take one of them out.

The way around the non stick Velcro  too wood , would be to nail or small screw a material that the velcro will stick to , in the correct locations.  Problem solved ???

Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: TFoch on January 09, 2019, 07:53:46 PM
Doesn't require the return line to the fuel tank but make sure you have room for the Fuel Command Center that you'll have to mount in your engine compartment.  I've attached the instructions below.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: ChevRon on January 10, 2019, 09:22:49 PM
Tom .. If you run a fuel command center.... you need to  put it somewhere cool. These things are notorious for boiling fuel. With it being in the engine compartment plus the short run from throttle body to command center the fuel heats up. I had that problem on the first one I did . Ended up running return line.  Just a FYI.. Ron
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: TFoch on January 10, 2019, 09:34:57 PM
I looked at the 3 different ways to install the FITech in my 33 and decided on using the in tank pump.  I spoke with quite a few guys that installed it on their rides and all were happy with it.  The main reason I went with the in tank pump is noise.  With a topless car I was worried that the noise from the fuel pump would bother me.  I spoke with @Munch on here who installed an external pump in his sedan and he said the pump wasn't that loud.  I did't pick the Fuel Command Center as my engine compartment just didn't have the room.
Tom
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: ChevRon on January 10, 2019, 10:34:55 PM
 Yep. That's the best way. In tank pumps are pretty quiet.  Usually with the engine running you barely hear it. Ron.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: EDNY on January 10, 2019, 11:41:53 PM
Appears that the "fuel command center" works similar to the system in a diesel...the diesel low pressure "lift pump" delivers fuel up to the engines "injection pump".  In a carb'd engine the original low pressure fuel pump just delivers fuel to the fuel command center.

The diesel engines in my mid 90's GM trucks had a fuel return lines that were plugged and not used and I noticed that the lift pump was located in the exact same location as the metal fuel filter would be on a gas engine. Figure GM just ran both supply and return lines just to keep things simple and could be adapted on the assembly line for either a gas or diesel engine.

When I do my TPI and LT1 EFI conversions I learned to use only ACDelco inline pumps, the other aftermarket units are noisy.  Just try to mount the pump on some rubber and if possible close and lower than the tank.  Prefer the in tank pumps..best way to go.
Title: Re: 33 chevy
Post by: TFoch on January 16, 2019, 07:18:58 AM
Just an FYI.  The FITech 38003 with the in tank fuel pump is back ordered until March 8.  The one with the external fuel pump is available now.  Guess it'll be a while before I can post any updates. >:(
