Re: Model A Steering Box Holes: Slotted?

My 28 came with a spacer in the column drop to lower the column about a 1/2 inch. You could loosen the two bolts and lower the column using the spacer and then tighten the bolts.

Re: Calling all rear axle experts! Knocking noise coming from rear axle

I don't think its the endplay causing the noise. They all have endplay, something else is causing the noise and it sounds the same as when you move the axle in and out.

Re: solenoid with start button

If you have a floor starter switch you probably don't have a solenoid.
The 36 switch is a manual switch you have to push to energize. Pretty hard to hook a remote to it.
