Re: 1929 Hood Latches won't reach

Here is a pic of my pickup....it isn't pretty but it looks like someone long ago just cut the lacing so the hinge would sit down into the depression...at least I don't see a wire and I'm pretty sure...

Re: 1929 Hood Latches won't reach

Here is a picture of my 29 pickup latch

The hook of the latch just slips over the hood latch clip.

I think if the hood were up just a little it would be difficult to latch.

Re: Removing rear spring

The first picture is when I was putting it back together...you don't need it very high, I used a couple fairly tall jack stands. The bed is off because I also replaced the rear cross member..

Re: Can the TDC pin be off by 90 Degrees?

Can you post a picture of your timing cover?

There are Model A covers and Model B covers. The timing hole is in a different location on the B cover. It's not 90 but it makes a big difference.

Re: Parking brake interchangeable?

You will need a different tower, as mentioned.

These two pictures show the side mount brake lever and the front mount. Same transmission, different towers...both on a '29.

Re: ignition switch wiring

Re: New clutch - should the throw out bearing disengage?

You can adjust pedal freeplay by screwing the clutch pedal adjusting yoke in or out of the trunion.

Look at page 1-69 in Les Andrews' book.
