Re: model A distributor cap ?? double Script ??

If Bakelite, it is an original, used from BOP through March 28. I think that the last one that sold on eBay brought around $40.

Re: Why are there so many more 1930 grill shells than 1931s?

There were actually three radiator shells made for 28/29. From the beginning of production through February '28, the lacing was woven through holes rather than riveted to the shell. It also had a...

Re: The Spindle Bolt Locking Pin: A-3122

Steve, it is really pretty simple. You can mill a round notch in the later style spindle bolts that will then work with the early style round locking pins. It's best if you can use an early style...

Re: Are repo engine pans identical to original?

I have not seen repop pans that will fit as well as originals. Another couple of ways to identify reproduction pans are the corners and the frame mounting holes. Originals have round holes, some...

Re: metal valve stems. How tight?

So, here's a picture of an NOS brake light switch. The rod extends about 1-1/2" from the body while the switch is relaxed. I suspect that Dan is correct in that the travel of your brake pedal is...
