car clock

Does anyone know about original accessory car clocks are available for the Model A? I had a Mansfield Wiz mirror clock for awhile which no longer works and I'm told can't be repaired.

Hi-

Yes you are correct. I did trim the top and bottom rubber inserts down to where they just stick out in front of the metal clips that seat them. It did not make any difference. I also tried...

Re: driver's door squeaks due to rubber inserts top and bottom and in the latch

1929 water pump question

I see in the Judging standards that the 1929 water pump has no grease fittings. But before in 1928 and after in 1930-31 it did. Was the lack of fittings a problem with water leaking out?

Rumble seat step plates black?

I have a 1929 standard coupe built in July of that year. I was told the round step plates for the rumble seat were painted black in 1929 and left shiny silver colored for 1930-31. Is that correct?
