Re: 27

Sweet! Like the turn signal. That mud flap isn't going anywhere, no flapping as we roar down the hi-way! LOL Interesting way to mount the spare tire(s).

Re: new build with zero clearance,Hagerty

That would be burning them in. Done in the T era. The motor was built and hooked to a powerful electric motor or other power supply then the run till they smoked (at the factory no less!).

Re: B4 water pump on A OHV conversion

RE;the Miller has 4 and would accept the A pump

See my first link, the 4 holes are not the same as Model A so you couldn't bolt an A pump up anyway.

Re: Body Identification

The wood fire wall was used into 1923 so your date range sounds about right. I have to agree, too nice of a body to rod out esp if the wood is still good.
