Re: dual rear spare question

My 29 coupe came with dual spare tires. I took them off as I did not like them. I later found the top bolt that bolts to the body was broken. It looked like a new bolt, so it may have broken before.

Re: Introducing the new 1928 Ford

My father could remember, how people crowded the Ford dealer when they got the first model A. He said there was a group of people waiting out side the dealer before they opened the doors.

Re: 2 Spares

You can still buy those special bolts from Mac's or Snyder's, one of those. My 29 came with two spares mounted with those same bolts. I sold them on E-Bay for more than the catalog price.

Re: AV8 radiator/fan clearance ?

If you change to early V8 water pumps, you will also need to change the cam, timing gears, and front cover. I always build the other way, take a 59 AB and build it like a 8 BA.
