Re: Bent Wishbone

I would think that finding another wishbone would be rather easy. Every Model A had them and they should be all the same regardless of model. I wouldn't even try to straighten it, just find another...

Re: What's Your Preference: Restored, Original, Modified, Rod?

I like them all but don't care for "classifying" them. Some people get too hung up on definitions of each "class".

Re: The ABSOLUTE CURE for all ignition problems.....

Hoovercw, I forgot to mention that the oil filter housing on the 240 will not clear the firewall so has to be removed. I made a mount for a remote spin on and bolted it to the side of the block just...

Re: The ABSOLUTE CURE for all ignition problems.....

The passenger side mount is pretty straight forward but the drivers side required a but of finessing as it wanted to occupy the same space as the steering box. As you cab see, I also boxed the frame....

Re: The ABSOLUTE CURE for all ignition problems.....

In my case, the exhaust note will be perfect (IMO). Also, more range (better fuel economy) and safer having diesel sitting over my lap rather than gas. When we were in cuba, we hired a taxi that was...

Re: Ford Sedan Delivery vs Gibbons conversion

30.5 inches from the centre of the wheel opening (in line with the top fender mounting bolt) and the rear most edge of the panel (next to the rear door jamb)

Re: Ford Sedan Delivery vs Gibbons conversion

I will get you that measurement this morning. I don't think the terms are synonymous. A sedan delivery and a panel delivery are two different animals. The panel delivery is larger and more square...

Re: The ABSOLUTE CURE for all ignition problems.....

That is a GREAT solution. Being a diesel fan, I am putting a 2.4L mercedes diesel in my 31 DD. It fits better than OJ's glove.

Re: Ford Sedan Delivery vs Gibbons conversion

I could easily measure mine if you like. The panels are leaning up against the wall but it's a 31 and I think they are different than a 28-29. It seems to me, IIRC, I was told that my 31 is 8" longer...

Re: Ford Sedan Delivery vs Gibbons conversion

It's my understanding that the sedan deliveries (28-29) are the same basic body as a tudor just with the rear door and panelled in quarter windows. The longer body came about with the Deluxe delivery...

Re: Scary picture

When I bought my lift, I looked into both 2 and 4 post. My brother has 2-4 post lifts and really likes them but, in the end, I just didn't have room for a 4 post so went with a 2 post. They both have...

Re: Slang-feel free to add

"stovebolts" can be slotted flat countersunk or slotted pan head. I don't know why the chevy inline 6 was/is called a "stovebolt", only that it was/is. If the valve cover, side cover and pan came...

Re: How many are left?

That could be close. The USA is about 3.5 million square miles but most are not occupied. 250,000 cars would mean less than 250,000 square mile occupied (lots of places where more than one car...

Re: I'd really like to know.

No idea what you re using but I know with the pertronics I use it requires a somewhat specific coil. Mine is also an older one that will burn out if the key is left on.

Re: 1930 deluxe delivery

Since it appears to be missing the entire left 1/4 panel, I would consider restoring the entire right side and hang it on the shop wall. Paint it up with a sign of some sort on the panel complete...

Re: 1930 deluxe delivery

That's a great save but.............WOW. I thought mine was rough. While it certainly IS a DD, the only DD specific parts I see is the right quarter panel and the header for above the rear door. Not...

Re: My car is worth itís weight in,,,,,,,, tennis balls.

I'm not sure I understand the issue. Yes I understand that well done hotrodded Model A's are worth more than well done restored model A's. So what?. I have both and, yes, my hotrodded ones are worth...

Re: 1930 deluxe delivery 130-B

The ones in my DD were rough and i wasn't going to use them anyway so I gave them to a guy with a beautiful restored '31 DD that he has had since the '70's IIRC. Not sure if he was able to do...

Re: 1930 deluxe delivery 130-B

Re: advice

Wouldn't do anything to prevent freezing. Kerosene and water don't mix. It will just separate after the engine is shut off so the lower half of the engine would still freeze. If they did do that,...
