Re: 1929 Pickup interior

It’s akin to pirating music or photocopying liturature and passing it out...

Brent certainly does it the right way, by quoting or putting the information in his own words and crediting the source! Of course...

Re: 1929 Pickup interior

It is a shame that people here are so cavalier about posting information from the JS & RG.

It truly takes away from the volunteer efforts of so many dedicated people.

Maybe that is why people...

Re: New top installation question

Lay out all the fabric flat for several weeks before you begin and the wrinkles should relax out. If there are hard creases you may have to resort to a steamer or iron. Always do a test in an...

Re: Coachlace Trim for Early A (AR),hubcaps and Bell housing

Re: tyre preservation. suggestions please.

The old timers used to put the car “up on blocks.” Basically put the car on stands so the weight is off the tires and let the air out of them. Of course you would do this only if the car is laid up...

Re: Has Anyone Ever Seen a Model "A" With Cowl Lights on the Fender?

I think a perfectly restored Sportlite plus paying someone to install it is still probably close to a weeks wages for the average person today.

Re: Original Grease Gun Repairs

Did you take the end apart to see if the check valve (ball bearing and spring) are intact and functional? The plunger merely acts as a follower to keep the grease moving toward the business end.

Re: Original Grease Gun Repairs

Most seem to be leather but I have seen cork plunger. The leather is a “gasket” between metal, the cork is a tapered plug type plunger maybe an inch or so thick.
