Re: clutch rod clevis? 1933 model B

You are right... My floor is a metal/steel plate.
But I have to stop creeping under the car. Sometimes, things have to be taken apart to gain access.

Re: clutch rod clevis? 1933 model B

the clevis moves but the lever arm needs to be pushed forward so that I can slide the clevis off. without the floor/firewall floor plate the clevis would slide right off.

Re: clutch rod clevis? 1933 model B

Does the lever arm move far enough to clear the clevis? I will have to move the lever arm 1-2 inches forward to clear the clevis. Much resistance.

Re: 1933 coolant "water"

funny....I thought so....I wonder when people started using distilled water.
Maybe the minerals in the tap water help seal cracks? Ha

Re: radiator weeping

old timers back in the 1930's used to pour a small size box of pepper into the radiator. This would have the small soft ground pepper fill and tiny cracks.

Re: rear view mirror clock

My 1933 Standard has a 4.5 in long mirror with curved edges. I assume original, looks antique.
