Re: Will I fit in a Roadster??

I'm 6'1'' and 250 and don't have any trouble. It's easier to get in an out with the top down, I've found. Anyway, they're a fun car. Closest thing (other than maybe a homemade speedster) to a...

Re: Another quality product from MAC

Bought a lot of paint from Mac's in the old days. One of the few places you could get it.

Re: Replacing Horn Rod???

It shouldn't all come out, but cleaning up that mess might seem the better option after trying to find the tube, poking at it blindly with the horn rod. I guess you choose your poison! Joe K in...

Re: Replacing Horn Rod???

It's been a long time since I did this, and I might be disremembering the whole process, but I don't recall it being a problem. Can't the tube be installed after the horn rod is already in place and...

How about a picture where we can see the label?

Re: backfire.

Leaky manifold gasket can do it.

Re: Lebaron Bonney is Bankrupt

How sad. I never had anything but good experiences with them, going back to the 1970s. What companies a lot of us do business with will be next?

Re: Best lubrication for transmission ?

I'd be a little concerned that too-thin lubricant would work its way past the seals. I don't think they're intended for light oil.

Re: Worn out 31 roadster value?

No offense, but I'd say your advice certainly proves your point.

Re: rear wheel

No. No reason for it. You're more likely to break the studs loose from the hub than snap them off. Actually, snapping them off would be better! If you break them loose, they just spin inside the...

Re: OK,I wanna change my......

You might get by with just tipping the radiator forward to the light bar (without removing the lights or horn), but can't do this without removing the hood and probably the radiator shell, and of...

Re: Got One - Now the VIN search

We have fifty states, and are apparently "United" only in our desire in each of those fifty never to do anything the way another state does it.

Re: Got One - Now the VIN search

My chassis was in pretty good shape, but even with the body completely off it was not possible to read the frame number without a lot of work. I had to use a piece of paper and rub a pencil back ...

Re: short model a film

Change public houses. When I lived in the UK for a couple of years, the beer (Real Ale) was cool ("cellar temperature") not warm.

Right rear tire looks like it's been driven through a hog wallow.

Re: Brake assembly, Roadster

Werner~


You might want to taper the ends of your brake linings a little more. Or maybe they already are, but the picture just doesn't show it. A relatively minor thing.

Re: Gear shift boot removal

If the floormat is installed and the boot is sticking up through it, I can see how it would not be immediately evident how to remove it.

Re: Looking for info for restoring model A pickup

I agree. Many of the photos have details just traced over with a pen. I didn't find it very useful. However, the company or guy who produced it (Mac?) did sell some good brackets, chain links, and...

Re: Model A won’t start

I'd take the carburetor off and spray some carb cleaner through the jets. Backfiring is often a sign of fuel starvation. That is, if your further electrical check, as suggested by 30 Closed Cab PU...

Re: Gas today-can you beat this?

I remember in the mid 50s getting gas at a Wareco station in Silvis, Ill, for 19 cents a gallon. Gas "wars" were pretty common among local stations in those days.
