Re: Gap between door opening and seat

I am glad those laws aren't on the books any longer. Getting in to the bucket seats of a Tudor from the passenger side would be difficult because you can't easily slide over.

Re: 1928/29 header wood steam bent or sawed

Lots of steps, valleys, humps and curves on a 29 Tudor header wood. I really suspect they were sawn, routed and sanded. They do take a bit of "adjusting". I bought mine from a supplier and I did...

Re: Shift lever and fork size - absolute or relative?

Relative, to a degree.

Look at it this way. Strive for absolute, but at the end of the day, getting it as close as you have it, I would probably call it good. You don't want the shifter to be so...

Re: Small circuit breaker heats and opens

It could be a load that is not a dead short, but enough to trip the breaker. Does the wire get hot or warm too, or is it cool and only the breaker getting warm? How many amps does the ammeter show...

Re: Removing the C Clips on a Universal Joint

I recently did mine, and while the clip was difficult, I was able to get it off with a small screwdriver. It was difficult, but I got it done. Interesting idea of cutting them off.

Re: 1929 Tudor Door hinge pin replacement

Find someone in your local club who has an air (pneumatic) air hammer. Small size. After about a minute or less, it will come right out. Mask around it well and hold it steady because it will tend to...

Re: Viberation - After Installing Model B Distributor

I don't know the answer to this, but is the timing gear for the Model B engine different than the Model A? You mentioned a Model B timing cover which I seem to remember reading that the timing pin...

Re: 29 Tudor hood alignment

Some things to consider. You say you had the body off of the frame once before. Even though you had a shim under one radiator side, how did the hood fit before? What was the condition of the...

Re: Tire changers, do you use the DIY units?

Not hard to do manually. My 29 has 21 inch wheels. Like has been said, it is harder to take the tire off than put it on. I did need a tire iron to remove them. Putting one on did not involve any...

Re: Manual Spark Timing

X2

Spark advance has nothing to do with the voltage. Starting the car with the spark advanced causes the spark to hit before the piston gets to its top, and essentially works against the starter...

Re: Alternator install

Before doing any changes on the wiring, you should always either turn off the master cut-off switch or disconnect the battery. Believe me, it will save you a ton of grief. You might notice that in...

Re: Additional Fuses

Carl:

My word, Nice and organized wiring job, but you *must* have a lot of things attached. Judging by the plumbing, it looks like a heater coil so there must be a fan for that, and seeing that...

Re: Top kit advice

I think the creases will come out just fine. I have been using a hair dryer and letting it straighten itself out.

Re: What's the latest you can remember anyone using an A?

PS: There is a guy in our local club who drives his 31 pickup as often as he can; like most every day. He calls it Rusty, and for good reason. He also has a '30 Tudor that he uses for those...
