Re: Proper Operating Temp?

Crankster, if you are talking about Model A’s, I have to disagree with that. I have owned my 29 Tudor for 60 years and until two years ago ran only water, except in the winter, when I used denatured...

Re: Help Identifying Part Please

I have an original pair of these, and the rubber is hard as steel. Is there replacement rubber available? I don’t have any current supplier catalogs or internet access.
I like to keep parts original...

Re: Roadster Pick-up Door

The original side curtain snaps are unique, and used to be very hard to find. I don’t know if they’ve been reproduced.

Re: hoky fixs

I bought a ‘29 ccpu in 1965 where the previous owner must have had stock in a baling wire company. The doors, tail light, and tail gate were all held on, held together, or held closed with wire. The...

Re: how long does a sale usually take?

When I look at Model A ads the first thing I look for is photos of the engine from at least four views, because these can tell me a lot about what the owner knows and what may need attention. Same...

Re: 1928 Open Cab Pick-up Wire Routing

Make your picture files smaller. Jpg works best.

Re: Trick for removing oil pan singlehanded

Some kitty litters are flammable. Make sure you are using clay-based litter, not bio-degradeable.

Re: Rear Brakes

Dennis, you may have some trouble fitting a ‘29 body on a ‘30 frame. I’m thinking hole alignments and radiator/front crossmember issues.

Re: Steering Arm Balls

There is a huge liability risk with replacing or repairing steering arm balls, and that is one reason why most local guys have stopped doing them.

Re: First start

Tiny Tip: Sometimes that dimple isn’t very deep. If I can’t feel it with the timing pin, I’ll use a stubby phillips head screwdriver. That pointy end gives you a better chance of feeling a shallow or...

Re: 1931 Deluxe Vs STD Coupe

I don’t think any Model A’s came from the factory with dual taillights in the US, deluxe or standard. The RG & JS probably define this.

Re: Early Ford Hydraulic brakes in 1931 Fordor

I agree with Wayne. If I bought an A with hydraulics, the first thing I would do would be put it back to original mechanicals. Simple and effective.

But that’s just me, OK?
