Re: Milwaukee Plant

Jeff,
1. I am not certain the R was used by the Milwaukee plant.
2. If you looked at my e mail from July 12th 2015, it contained ALL R numbers I had.
3. Agree with your eye statement.

Re: April 1928 Business Coupe

Pluck,

Re: Two tooth steering box spider removal

If you are filling the box with lube, it might be to much and cause a leak. There are differing amounts of lube required that have been floated around. Full is not in any of them that I recall.

Re: Tread chaser or thread size

These threads are 16 threads per inch. Snap On makes a very nice thread chasing kit that has thread files for the various pitch of threads.

Re: Very dirty filter bowl

Wow that is way to much crud. Do they have any filters on the gas pumps at the station where you are buying your gasoline. If the crud is getting into your Model A it is also getting into...

Re: 1929 special coupe

It looks like your Special originally had the drum style tail light mounted on the drivers side of the rear body cross member. There are three D nuts in the cross member just to the right of...

Re: Rear backing plates delima

Pluck,
Some of the older reproduction adjusting wedges did not have an undercut where the threads meet the wedges. This would cause the wedge not fully retract.

Re: distributor shaft

In addition to drilling the upper shaft, the cam screw also needs to be drilled.
Jim, would not the rotor keep the oil from being flung around the inside of the distributor?

Re: Help! Tie rod end install

Chad,
You said you replaced the balls on the steering arms. The originals were 1 inch in diameter. What size are the new balls?

Re: Help! Tie rod end install

If the new springs are the correct length, you can use a small C clamp to force the tie rod ends onto the ball on the steering arms.

Re: Door sill numbers

Ed,
The wood sill where the NK number is stamped is also original to the car. There might also be a body tag on either wood sill or the firewall.

Re: Another new Model A owner.

Looks like a nice car and welcome. Is there a plug in the wiper motor hole in the intake manifold? Cannot tell from the picture, but there are no signs of a vacuum windshield wiper line.

Re: distrbuter screw

I think the poster is asking about the screw that holds the cam to the upper shaft. If that is the case, there is a lock washer and flat washer under the cam screw.

Re: 1930 Sport Coupe finally!!

The NK 1535 is a production number. We feel they are for each assembly plant and are probably by body style. We believe they stamped the digits sequentially starting in late 1927 with number one for...
