Re: '28 sport coupe, would you or not?

Mike, I own a '15 T touring which is the same body as Thom's 21, ...and believe it or not, there probably is just as much room in the T as there is in the A. The difference is the way you ride. In...

Re: I need the proper names of parts I need for my pickup

The correct nomenclature can be found in Ford Parts Price Booklets. These are the books that Ford's agencies (dealers) used to order parts from.

Re: Timing gear/cam noise?

Food for thought here, ...higher valve loads should not make the Camshaft walk fore & aft by itself. Besides a oil pump applying greater pressure, worn Tappet bores and/or worn Camshaft journals...

Re: Body Interior Variation

Re: Phaeton Front Seat Removal

The backrest spring rests on a set of clips. You will probably need to remove the Hidem and tacks from the wooden seat tackrail, then lift the entire backrest upward.
