Re: Barrett Jackson

I saw two, what looked like '37 Ford hot rods that went for $30K. I know you can't build them for that, someone got a great deal! Same for that '35 Ford Coupe.

Re: 34 Bob Drake Grill racking

As coopman states, you are not going to get any help from Drake. It's always "never had a complaint about.....". You might have to bolt it up and "tweak" it and see how it lines up. I had a similar...

Re: 32 roadster rear window frame

If you can't find them on their web site or in their catalog, McMaster-Carr will find them for you. Just give them a call and ask.

Re: 32 roadster rear window frame

I don't see it mentioned anywhere, but If I'm not mistaken they are ovalhead, not flathead screws. Ovalhead screws are measured from the edge of the part that meets the countersunk frame, not by...

Re: Ammeter vs volt meter on 12v converted system

Wayne, I probably should have looked for a Ron Francis Wiring catalog before I answered you, but I just found one. There is a 1/3 page article in the catalog explaining why you should never use an...

Re: Ammeter vs volt meter on 12v converted system

Wayne, Jack E, sums it up perfectly in post #10 and #12. Most aftermarket wiring companies won't even supply the wiring for an amp gauge for safety reasons. If it's an antique car that was factory...

Re: A Interesting 1934 Ford Brochure I Found over 20 years Ago

tubman, I also wondered about those heaters, as all they were are heat exchangers that must have rotted out internally and brought in carbon monoxide into the cabin. I wonder how many, "he fell...

Re: 47 ford door lock

As deuce mentions give it a squirt of penetrating oil before you try to get it out. Once you get it out, replace it with a stainless set screw coated with anti seize and never worry about it again.

Re: window glass for 37 Ford Woodie

Foreign scripts? You can order a set of "bugs" from Third Gen Automotive. They are very easy to do and are exact as Ford did them.

Re: Rear Brake Roller Kits

If at all possible you should try to purchase original parts. I just replaced the entire set of rollers on my Model A and most of the rollers needed to be reamed and the pins cut down.

Re: P 38 Belly Tank part 2

Re: Cutting Holes in Frame Webbing

I found that backing the webbing with wood or some other material makes a clean cut. Believe it or not I have been using a 1/4" foot square of lead and allowe's the punch to cut right through.

As I mentioned in post 14, the good ones have a waiting list. You won't regret your choice in going with Ron Heiden.
