Check out the difference in the clips and the choke levers. The long lever was 36-37 and the short clip is for 36 to 39!

I set up the coil on Doug's 36 today. Check out the o.g. globe spark plug! These are really really rare.

The packing nuts are oem as is the coil. I wrap them with duct tape and use a set of pliers that I bored the jaws out on to tighten them up. This seems like a lot of work, but it protects the knurls on the nut and keeps the plating nice and shiny!

Ta Da! I made up the spark plug nuts on a turret lathe when I was in high school. I made 300 of them, and now I am down to 70. They are correct for pre 45 models.
