Re: Rear Fender Identification Help

Odd one to me. Looks like a Coupe or Roadster but it's too narrow. Plus the rolled edge looks like a Aftermarket fender as it's not rolled nicely and it's missing the fine lines along the rolled...

Re: Frustration

Check to see if the Distributor is grounding to the engine. Put a jumper between the dist. body anda ground. Sometimes rust will form between the too and you get a poor ground. My thoughts.

Re: Victoria on ebay

Well if you find a roof and Door tops and mouldings you'd be good to put it back together. As long as you could buy it right.

Re: 29 Tudor electric wiper

I would check and see if the armature is clean. after sitting for a few years there may be a bit of corrision stopping the motor from running. I rebuilt my motor like this and there rather if'y.

Re: Removing the entire side of a 30 coupe - 1 piece?

Yes, it can be done two ways. One is to remove all of the rivets in the crossmembers, rear seat rizer and remove the rear panel and take the complete side as a unit with the rail.

The other way is...

Re: 29 sport coupe windlace

Thanks Brent that's quite the challenge to take on. First Time I've hear of Benson Library. I'll be looking into that. In Canada the archive was at the Ford Plant and Head Office in Oakville Ont....

Re: Light Switch Problem

I went though the same thing. I had bought one switch assembly and it was poorly made. Then I bought a second one from Bratton's. Much better, plus it came with a instruction sheet on what to do to...

Re: 29 sport coupe windlace

Great info Brent. Makes sence when you think about it, that they covered the windlace and installed it before painting. Where did you find that great info? John

Re: Electric wiper

There could also be rubber boots on the ends of the motor where it mounts. Make sure you clean off the windshield frame where the brass strip grounds under the mounting screw. JP

Re: Small Fire Extinguisher to Carry in Car

I think it was here. A guy wrapped up a small box with a lid to look like a gift. Then sat it on the parcel shelf. Another Idea I saw was a wooden box with a lid used the same way. Easy to get to and...

Re: Back to engine vibration

I have a vibration, comes on about 1/4 throttle. I think this is worth a try. If this works then I'll bond the weight to the pressure plate with some structural adhesive. Interesting.

Re: Which Model A for a coast to coast trip?

Re: A Frame dimensions

Welcome to Aftermarket Parts. Good enough seems to the the norm. Ugh!! 1/4" is the max for spec on a frame. But "0" is better.

Re: Adding castor to the axle

I think the first step is to find out why. 1/16' is close to one degree. So find out what you have. You can use a bubble level on the face of the axle to check this. and then see what out of square....

Re: What Year Is This Coupe ?

I would say from the 1/4 panels its a 30 - 31. I suspect that it's hand made. Either Metal or Fibreglass.
Everyone has a "Dream", some of them are "Nightmares"
