    part supplier references

    I bought most of my parts from Roberts motor parts in Mass never had a problem and shipping was great. I bought stuff from Bernbaums it was OK just a tad more expensive..

I chose the color beechwood and it is just like the original color very nice and great to deal with use my name and let them know how many bowes there I told them 5 but there are only 4 but there is a stationary one in the back so I think I will be OK will keep you posted on my progress just let me know if you have a that masonary piece back by the window.

    4101 horn relay

    My 39 dodge business coupe haas a horn relay marked 4101 and has 3 connectors marked h s and b with the b term having a fuse on the relay. I have the lead from the voltage regulator going to the b term and the green wire from the steering column going going to the s terminal and the horn wires going to the h terminal but the horn does not sound if I take the wire from the b term and touch it on the h term the horns work I have looked through all of the past posts on this but can't seem to find a relay with just 3 terminals and have run a new wire through the steering column and cleaned and inspected the parts in the steering wheel. I have tried to hook up a horn button to the s terminal but don't know if I should hook up a wire from the other term on the new horn button and run it back to the s term on the relay or just run it to a ground. The service manual only shows 2 wires going to the horns the one from the voltage regulator and the one from the steering column but does not show where to hook them up. Please help me I am going crazy trying to get this right. Thanks Gary

    heater wiring

    My 39 dodge buisness coupe has a switch on the far left side of the dash and has 2 wires and a bulb 1 terminal is marked bat and the other mot 1 goes to the heater motor which I guess would hook up to the mot terminal but where would the other wire from the switch go and where would the other wire from the heater go? Would the switch wire marked bat go to the ign switch and the other wire from th heater motor go to a ground? I can not find any markings on the heater as to what the make is I took the cover off and looked and looked but no make or model. Thanks Gary

    heater wiring

    There are no markings on the heater at all it is too hard to see anything on the motor itself without taking it out but it looks in perfect condition I took the cover off and it looks like new inside in perfect condition. That is a good idea to hook it up to the acc side of the ign. will do. Thanks

    heater wiring

    The switch has a bulb in it and a knob that goes over the bulb and seems to have 2 settings so the wire from the bat side of the switch goes to the ignition and I should put in a 20 amp fuse ok and the wire coming off the blower should go to ground. By the way it is a 6 volt pos ground. Thanks Gary

    39 dodge duel horn wiring diagram

    Rich I have a manual for a 38 dodge and a supplement manual for a 39 but the 39 supplement does not show much and the 38 manual does not have what looks like a fuse connection on the relay like mine does I was just looking for a pic for a 39 dodge with duel horns.

    Chrome alternative

    I have read many articles about chrome alternatives but tried my own idea and it works great. I did both bumpers on my 39 Dodge and they turned out beautiful I have had many people look at them and can't believe they are not real chrome here is what I did. First I used my angle grinder with a flapper disc and ground all of the old chrome and chrome residue off them until they are bare metal make sure you get along the edges real good, then I used 80 grit sand paper and smoothed them all out then 150 grit sandpaper getting all of the deep scratches off before going to 220 grit and sand until there is no scratches they should be looking real good at this point I used 800 grit to polish them up nice and again make sure there are no scratches then I used mothers metal polish with 0000 steel wool and buffed them until they shine beautifully and I used a product called floods oil paint infuser and put that on with 0000 steel wool and wipe it off right away and when you are done they will look just like chrome but it take a boatload of hours of grinding and sanding to get it done but to me the results will be worth it. Good luck
