Re: 1931 Standard Roadster top

Call Bert's in Denver and talk with Steve. They have all the parts except the fabric. Tell him to stop at his bank first.

Re: Convert to 12 Volt ?

Re: What type of Fan Blade do you recommend

You will get lots of responses but my guess is most of them will be to stick with what was original, the two blade fan. I think that the aluminum 2 blade is what most suppliers offer now. I've had...

3.78 vs 3.54 rear end and speedometer/miles

I have to replace ring gear in my roadster. Presently it is stock which I think is 3.78. If I put in a 3.54 gear & pinion, how will this change the mph and odometer reading ? Thanks, Bill
