Re: Carb Adjusting Needle O.D. Dimension

Thanks Tom,
I tried oil on the shaft and it was still bound tight so I used another needle that I had lying around and it is working but loose.
Wondering what the original dims were that Ford used.

Re: Exterior handle ID

Check the major suppliers - i.e. Snyders, Brattons, Berts, etc.
Very similar to the handles on my 29 CCPU.

Ford used this style handle on 26-27 Model T and 28-29 Model A CCPU's
