Re: Fuel Gauge

No one mentions why the new tools are made of aluminum. Fire safety. I've used them to repair the gauges on both my As and they worked fine,

Re: 31 Roadster Question

Terry when you say "sills" are you referring to the sub-rails?

Re: Fuel Gauge

Are you using the correct tools? I'm ask because after the outside and inside nuts are removed there's really nothing much to hold it on. The old cork seal should come off pretty easy.

Re: Bolts rear motor mount to clutch housing

I took a box end wrench and ground the wall down just enough that I could fit it on the bottom bolt. Taking weight off the bolt may also help.

Re: How much weight in a attached trunk

Between the gas and water you've got about 40 lbs.The rest of it another 20 to 30+ depending on that tool box. I think you're looking at breaking something down the road

Re: Need Help with Model B Carb

Just some ideas. Pull the drain plug on the carb. and make sure the main jet is tight. Check the throttle shaft and check if it's not too loose. Then check the wiper vaccum line all the way back....

Re: headliner installation

I don't believe it's necessary but certainly makes the headliner job much easier and by putting on a new roof you protect that new headliner. Good chance that the roof needs replacing anyway.

Re: Road trip: making it there and back

How much did you extend the bed? In my CCPU I'd have to sleep with my knees under my chin.

Re: Rumble Lock Trouble

Did you check that the latch (hook) is thin enough to slide into the slot mounted on the cross member at the top. I had one that was too thick and wouldn't go in the slot.

Re: Rumble Seat Panel and Lock

Take the handle out, remove the two screws at the top edge of the lid and the latch mechanism will just drop loose. Pull it out one of the big holes.

Re: Body & Frame Connection

I currently have the body off my late '31 coupe. You can see from the pictures that the wood block sat squarely on the frame bracket with both holes matching up with the holes in the bracket.

Re: Any recourse for this recurring scam

Better check with your bank. Deposit a bad check and you will probably be getting charged a returned check fee.
What I do is get their hopes up and string them along as long as I can.
