Re: Marc national

Re: EBAY 1929 Oval Window Coupe

I don't think it's a sport coupe. The photo of the interior side of the oval window seems to show the correct metal straps for the business coupe, not the sport coupe. Maybe someone more familiar...

Re: best head puller

The multi-position head/engine puller works best. It is not just for lifting the engine. It is a head puller that works by pulling against the studs. I'm not a good mechanic, but I can pull a...

Re: 1931 Model A Headlights

Cape Codder mentioned "a little box attached by magnet to the gas tank with two small buttons." That is the system I currently have on my car. I like the system very much, and it operates very well,...

Re: Yet another old car pic.....

The pipes running down the side terminate in a funnel. That is the catch system for the drain oil. Lift the car higher than it is in the picture, then move the funnel and the pipes (the joints in...

Re: Patina paint and Gibbs oil finish OT

Wick,

I do have some rusty areas with only a little paint left. How would you prep these areas, if at all?

Dick,

I'm not smart enough to post pictures. I did post a few in the past, but it...

Patina paint and Gibbs oil finish OT

I'm sorry this is a little off-topic, but I think the same answers may apply to a Model A finish. I am actually working on a '55 with original paint, but a good bit of surface rust--not a lot of...

Re: 29 Town Car front seating

Do you mean a Town Car (chauffeur driven)

Re: New water pump question

I just installed this same pump on my '31 after my leakless pump started leaking. As you suggested, I greased both ends BEFORE I installed it, so I could see when the grease started to come out. I...

Re: Repaired front crossmember and getting discouraged.

I would not worry about a welded front cross member unless it breaks again. My '31 coupe has a welded front cross member, and even has the crank bearing welded down as part of the repair. It was...

Re: My Pet Peeve - Landau Iron Rant

Jwilli,

Thank you for not taking offense at my comments. Now I can sleep better knowing at least one more set of landau irons is in the correct position (if I can get this darned pet peeve to...

Re: My Pet Peeve - Landau Iron Rant

You've got them on the correct sides now. The curves are correct. If you now switch them end for end, the knob at the center will come out on top of the iron, not the bottom. At least that's right...

Re: My Pet Peeve - Landau Iron Rant

THANK YOU for saying it. I love my sport coupe. (Everyone knows the sport coupe is the most beautiful of all Model A's.) But seeing the landau irons on the wrong side is like fingernails on a...

Re: spark, but not in the right places

A weak, failing battery will do this. The battery seems OK because it will turn the engine over with the starter, but there is not enough juice left to power the ignition. Try turning the engine...

Re: New Front Spring

From the picture you posted, it looks like the bolts would still be too long even if you added an eleventh leaf as a spacer. There are two different styles of starting crank bearings (crank...

Re: Looking to buy a 31 - advice needed

If it is in fact "original paint" which was applied at the factory, you may want to consider preserving that paint if possible. Don't be too quick to paint over it. The seller may mean that it is...
