Re: Front Tool Box

Used some 1-1/2" X 1/4" strap and a 14" tool box and made my own. Less than $25.

Re: Frame serial number to obtain a title?

Many states do not recognize Broadway Title as a legitimate source. Check before you spend any money.

Re: Head value

Took 3 blocks to Bert’s...all no good. According to most engine builders, you can get one out of ten A blocks that can be rebuilt.

Re: Trailering tips for protection

Anything over 2000 pounds is required to have trailer brakes in most states. In addition to trailer brakes, you also need a brake controller. U-Haul car trailers have surge brakes and do not...

Re: Trailering tips for protection

Re: 3.27 ring and pinion, anyone using one ?

I put a 3:27 in my roadster with a strong engine and found it wanting. Went back to a 3:54 and very satisfied with the performance. Too, I live in an area with 10,000’ passes.

Re: Towing a Model A

PM me...I recently bought an A chassis with a modification used by farmers to convert a chassis to a wagon. This appears to be a well designed accessory from the 1930's.

Re: stainless steel cleaner & polish

As the owner of a stainless steel Delorean, the best stuff is Sheila Shine that is carried by restaurant supply companies. No comparison to those listed above.

Re: Request for help with 28/28 Pickup

You can buy brand new 28-29 cab corners. Try Steve Becker at Bert’s Model A for measurements. His number is 800-321-1931. Closed Mondays. The ‘29 CCPU in my avatar has new cab corners that were...

Re: Berts Model A-Website

Bought the cab corners, upper and lower back panels form Bert’s. Be sure and order the trim pieces that go between the cab corners and back panels.

Re: Tire wheel balancing: is it needed ?

I balance the wheels and drums as a package. Aftermarket drums need to be balanced. I suspect that most ‘barn readers never give it a second thought. FYI, it took 12 ‘35 wire wheels to get 4 good...

Re: HP & Torque For Various Cylinder Heads

Probably the best head is Larry Brumfield’s. However, it looks like Jim Brierley’s new head is a contender.

Re: Install disconnect between 1 and 2, or 3 and 4?

First off, put it in a convenient place so you can use it without opening the hood. I’ve put it on the ground side in RV’s, boats, hot rods and Model A’s.

Re: I've found a legitimate reason to use a 12v alternator on a Model-A

As a long time off roader, I really appreciate heated seats. They will drain a battery if not wired through the ignition switch. Ask me how I know!
