Re: '29 CC PU assembly confusion

I donít see how you are wrong. There are two holes on each side in the cabs for the A and AA frame as you stated earlier. The A frame only has holes for the outside holes.

The inner holes do not...

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.

Re: Patching Inner Tubes

Tubes are so cheap, I'd rather have the peace of mind with a new tube. Especially on a motorcycle!

Re: Wisdom of Stopping Engine by Choking It Out

Lots of armchair opinions within, and yet these cars have managed to survive 90 years with all sorts of abuse and neglect.

Choking the engine to kill it will do absolutely no harm to the engine,...

Re: Radiator.... Mac's What say you?

You get what you pay for. Your time is worth something too, so R&Ring various radiators for trial isn’t worth my time or money. Buy a quality radiator and be done with it. Time is money.

Re: Is there a way to reset the ammeter to zero?

Original Radiator 28/29

Here’s a nice original radiator for 28/29. It has the funnel inlet, and seamed round tubes. I’ve never used the radiator so I recommend it be checked out at a radiator shop. Sold
