Re: 34 Phaeton Top Irons

Re: Winfield Tool KRW Hub Puller

Mitchell Manufacturing makes one as well. It works well, and on both styles of hubs, indented ring or protruding ring.

Re: Charging 6 volt Battery

I charge the battery in the car, no matter how the battery is connected. I don’t charge the car.

Positive terminal to the positive battery terminal, negative to negative.

Re: Any Model A owners in Sedona - Flagstaff - Cottonwood - Clarkdale - Jerome ?

You should state why you are looking for people in this area.

People with cars are in the area, but many car people reclusive and keep a low profile; most don't want strangers showing up in...

Re: Mode A Piston expander/ knurling tool to Buy

Don’t use these tools, it’s simply a bandaid tool. Like saw dust in the rear end.

Get a new piston or set of pistons, ball hone the cylinders and put it together. Pistons are relatively cheap,...

Re: commercial color list for 1929

Here's a picture from a year or two ago, but the last time it was in the sun. It's more complete now, but buried in the garage. The splash apron is black to give you contrast to the blue.
