Re: Water pump "studs"

Not being all too concerned with originality I use the black round head bolts just like the rest of the engine. I coat them with a thread sealant due to the fact that one of them is a thru hold into...

Re: Birthday present

I had that happen to me (not in my Model A though). Even though there was a witness that had a complete description including license #, they still got off scot free. They caved in the door panel, I...

When you say that the shell is wider, what dimension are you talking about? Fore/Aft or side/side?

Re: Dash Panel question

The gauge panel with the oval speedometer was only used up thru mid '30. Late '30 thru '31 end of production used the round speedometer.

Back in the earl '50s, my Dad bought a '31 AA that had only 10K original miles. The vehicle spent most of the time parked all those 20 years. Inspection of the crank showed that the mains were OK,...

Re: Tires

My 550R19 radials fit the fender well better than the 475x19 Firestones did. Ride a whole bunch better as well.

Re: Shocks for a Model A 1930 pickup

When I bought my tube shocks, I was asked what vehicle they were going on. Ken then sent the correct shocks for that vehicle. They have worked great.

Re: Shocks for a Model A 1930 pickup

I have had the shock kit made by Ken Davis on my pickup for a number of years. They are great! Only thing better would be a set of Bill Stipe shocks. That is if you could get over the sticker shock....

The original owner sold the car in 1933, probably as a trade-in for a new car.

Re: Front wheel bearing grease caps?

The biggest problem with fitting the caps is that the original washer under the nut is too large to let the cap fit down properly. Either get a smaller diameter washer or file/grind down the original...

Re: Manual wiper

My '31 Bud Cab Pickup came to me with a hand wiper. Of course, it was not correct, as well as the rubber was gone. I replaced it only to discover that it didn't work worth a damn. Eventually replaced...

Re: Who has a pickup and fitted it with rear bumper bars

I don't have any pictures, but it bolts to the frame in the same place where the rear bumper supports for sedans and coupes do.
