Re: Old car festival @ greenfield village

The irony is that The Henry Ford was reopened last week to its' members. Next week it is open to the general public according to Patricia Mooradian. So if it is open to the public, there may still...

Re: 29 Roadster seat question (Upholstery)

Are you going to install the seat covers correctly -or are you going to use 'hog rings'?

The first step is to ensure the springs fit the seat riser correctly. There needs to be no more than...

Re: Insert bearings

When conversions were in their infancy on the Model-A/B blocks, and when we were using multiple bearings within the main bearing web, machinists would use an end mill and create a way for the oil to...

Re: 29 Tudor side mounted tire question

If someone has an original welled fender, -or a properly installed well in a fender, there is no difficulty whatsoever removing the tire & wheel from the fender. I would venture a guess that your...

Re: 29 Tudor side mounted tire question

Actually, most reproduction wells that have been installed after the fender left the factory are installed incorrectly. When the well is installed correctly, the tire just touches the bottom of the...

Re: Running boards, 1930 Tudor

Even on the front fenders on an original 1930, the body must be lifted to remove the fender from the chassis. This is because the running board is integral with the body apron, as is the front...

Re: Running boards, 1930 Tudor

Just so that you know, changing out running boards on a 1930 is MUCH more involved as the body must be lifted. You might want to consider just replacing the rubber mat if that is an option for you. ...

Re: 1929 Ford roadster body

I dunno about that. While I would want to see the O/P's body first before giving an exact value, -a new set of doors is less than $1,200.00, ...and a new Brookville Roadster body is almost...

Re: Brassworks 28 Show Quality vs Active Driver?

Re: Factory Balancing of Rotating Assembly

Bob, this is something that will likely take some time to research to come up with an answer. More time than I have right now unfortunately. As far as pistons & rods, I recall on the prints it...

Re: Crank grinding

I'm sure glad my grinder does not take up that much real estate!! That is a nice machine but definitely a 'big boy'!

Fun to watch that Arnold gage bounce. Taking off 0.125 from one side...

Hey Bob, thanks for that. I will go look to see if I can find anything regarding passenger vehicles.

Re: Need Photo of Crank Counterweight

John, the downside to doing this with a B crankshaft is, when the journal pins have been ground that far, you are through the original surface hardening (-typically about 0.035"-0.040" deep). Matter...

Re: stone guard

Re: Who makes the best fiberglass fenders

My experience with fiberglass is they too are not a direct fit right out of the box, but can be made to work. The biggest 'help' to these fenders is to grind the coarse finish underneath the fender...

Re: Need Photo of Crank Counterweight

Re: Clutch Stuck Disengaged
