Re: Head Bolt Torque-Hot or Cold?

I did too, but I came to the conclusion that the topic is just as relevant now as it was 10 years ago. BTW, I do mine warm. Seems like sometimes we over think stuff.

Re: Model A Registration Woes

The state that it is currently registered in may have put a registration plate on the firewall or the inside door jamb. If that state issued a state assigned number you may be home free.

Re: water pump end play how to stop?

Are you sure it was the fan on the shaft or is it play in the shaft in the water pump housing? If it is the shaft, which is REAL common, you can rebuild or buy a rebuilt water pump. However, a much...

Re: Trans Bearings

By the time you get the tranny out and apart, the additional cost and work to replace all the bearings and get new shafts with O rings is all pretty minimal, and worth the effort and cost. Taking...

Re: Install generator

Fifty years ago you could probably hold the generator still and even jockey it around with one hand while simultaneously lining up the bolt. I seem to have less arm strength than I did 50 years ago,...

Re: U Joint Service

Get a pneumatic grease gun or you are in for a lot of hand pumping. I pumped and pumped and pumped, and then borrowed one and finally got the grease out the speedo hole. I think Harbor Freight...

Re: 1930 Pitman Arm

The steering gear box is just one link in a series of things that affect loose or tight steering. Unfortunately, there is no one single item that will be a cure. At 90 years old, we seem to deal...

Re: Why wire up brake "dog bone"?

I had my first experience looking at a '28 last night. Went to help a newcomer to the hobby with brake adjustment. On my '29 the main cross shaft has bushings at each end where the cross shaft...

Re: 8 volt battery in 6 volt car
