Re: 12 volt Battery in Battery Box

The standard Group 1 they make today is a bit smaller than the box support and hold-down frame that are made, however if you tighten the frame down secure enough it does not move within that space....

Re: 1935 Hydrostatic Sending Unit

In my '33 I mounted a new tank and am using the sending unit as seen in Post #7 above but with a 1949 Ford fuel gauge to utilize the 2" dash opening. It fits without looking too far off from that era.

Re: What are the advantages of upgrading to Hydraulic Braks

It just doesn't seem safe to run these 80 year old plus cars at modern highway speeds or up and down steep grades. I take my "A" or V8 out on sleepy back roads when traffic is light and only when...

Re: 2021 plans for your Model A

To drive it. I got out of my routine and now it's covered with an inch of dust plus I've gained about 25 pounds.


2021 will be the year of getting our lives back!

Re: Silly question: How do you remove the gas gauge float retaining washer?

I agree, use the brass float and it has a tab to bend over the angled rod. Mine has been trouble free for 11 years.
