Re: 160 B front door window trim

Thanks B, your frames match my early Briggs frames. Anyone able to post a picture of a late 160B frame?

Where did you find the assembly plant I.D. on your car?

Re: Headlight sockets

Thanks jw, I have a set of repo sockets that are the long type, and they looked wrong to me when I started to install them. I will order the correct ones from Brattons.

Headlight sockets

Are the 28-29 headlight sockets longer or shorter then the 30-31 sockets? I know the focus screws are a different length but not sure which sockets are correct for 31. Thanks

Re: Remote battery terminals

It can be a bit tricky getting a jumper cable clamp on to that starter nut. But how often do we need to jump start our cars?
