Re: Is fuel bubbling normal

I am not so sure we are being 100% accurate in our comments above. To begin with, ethanol has a boiling point of just a tad under 175 (-not 147) and gasoline itself has a boiling point of about...

My first instinct is you have a poor ground. Make sure you have no corrosion at the connections. Generally speaking, you will break a Bendix bolt with the sudden impact that the 12v gives and not a...

Re: PPG paint code for interior window trim of '29 Tudor

Paul, depending on the build date, the moulding colors would have been a gray (Moulding Gray) or Light Buff. Neither of these really fit your description of dark brown. You may just want to match...

Re: Flywheel housing

Actually you are going to split the engine at the flywheel housing and the clutch (bell) housing. The clutch housing will remain bolted to the transmission. The transmission shift tower, the front...

Where did you get the clips? The repo clips do not look anything like what the originals did.

Re: Question? Peened inner front wheel bearing

Ok, I see what you are saying. Remove the drum/hub and then remove the inner bearing. Take a file and keep working the raised areas down until the bearing has a nice 'slip fit', -then repack it...

Re: Question? Peened inner front wheel bearing

Why not repair it correctly and replace the spindle assy?? If the snout of the spindle has been staked, you cannot properly set the bearing preload. If the outer bearing fails, there is a strong...

Re: Any trick to getting the hinges out of 29 Roadster

Do you have a TIG welder? Using the flat washer and a nut welded on trick will usually do the trick. (-i.e.: broken head stud truck)

Re: 1929 truck visor

What that AA thread does not tell you is you need a sewing awl, a template, and some skill to pull this off as most shops do not have an extended arm walking foot machine.
