Did the oil and water filler spouts that sat above the radio tuner offer some drip protection, it seems the engineers would have overlooked this bit of weather proofing.
When I get my test bench built, power supply, soldering and test equipment ready, I plan to try to trouble shoot my radio leaving as much original as possible. I have learned a little over the years and with YouTube this video would be a good walkthrough as this is a very similar radio to Crosley or Philco. It is obvious it is a very time consuming process $$$$=time but worthy for an historical museum relic Cord.

I don't think the radio was high on the list for special protection. The radios were optional. Mine did not have one fitted originally. It came later with a telescopic aerial. Good luck with repairing yours.

Both hood hinge drain pans have hoses 12 1/2 " long X 1/2 " ID X 5/8 " OD that carry water out through the fire wall with grommets on the engine side. A member had some at the Auburn Flea Market some time ago.

Spot on George. The filler cap recess also drained through the RHS hood hinge drain pan. There is nothing under the single cowl air vent, it relies on the rubber seal under the lid to keep water out.

I have several hood hinge drain pans. One of them has two drain hose nipples on it. I believe that pan fits the passenger side and is specifically for the 36 cars with the cowl oil n water fillers in it. I may even have three complete sets of pans but would need to search for sure.
