Re: What did I just buy?

You can't title it as a farm vehicle? Not sure tractors had VINs. I've never seen one with one.

Re: What did I just buy?

The best part about a doodlebug is some places let you register them on the road.
Sure it's about as practical as driving a tractor. But that's the fun of it.

Re: Convert 1921 Kerosene tail light to electric

I'm not sure what kits there are, but i simply didn't install a burner.
Instead, just ran speaker wire in through the hole where the burner winder pokes out and dropped that into the fuel bowl where...

Re: High compression head vs cooling

Depends if your head is alloy or iron.

"Alloy is for boiling water.
Iron is for power."

It was told to me that the alloy heads conduct the heat into the water faster, which is true. Hence...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

I do sometimes, but i'm from a time when gas stations were so rare that people were running around with 3 fuel tanks replacing seats in their cars at one stage.

Re: Having Fun With it?

Stock points. The 'modern' ones aren't actually all that modern, and it's now easier to get the stock ones. (which most of the time, are better).

As for the bearings, i understand the center main...

Re: Not Model A but FUNNY!

Reminds me of some people i know, who crashed 4 cars in one week, 3 of which were not theirs, totally destroyed the ones they didn't own.
But those people only think they can drive as well as that...

Re: Should I buy it?

i paid more than that for mine & mine was in much worse shape.
Different market though.. still. If you can put in some effort, go for it.

It has the same problem all modern 'pickups' have. Nobody can reach something in the tray. They're either 5 feet or more off the ground or the sides are 7 feet tall. How does anyone get something...

Re: 1934-35 front hub/drum source?

This sounds like a good option. Do you know if they have any patterns/mold for 35 hubs? (I think 34 would work in a pinch)

Re: Making an A axle steer easier

Not sure that's a good idea. It's extremely illegal in my country & a major reason why imported cars can't be road legal.

Re: Club Thinning

It is true that parts get hoarded, but all the good parts get sent to the crusher when the hoarder dies, so people like me have to make do with utter rejects.

As for your fuel tank, have you...

Re: Popping out Passenger side Exhaust

Consider wrapping the spark plugs in tin foil from the base to near the tip, about 1/4 inch below. When the engine is started the spark shouldn't take that path but as you remove the lead the spark...

Re: Cracked Block

Yes you can drill the ends of the crack and push soft wire into the holes & 'peen' it in place with a tiny hammer. Or tap and screw small machine screws in it. Don't drive them in too hard.

Re: 34 Radiator Leak - JB Weld

I don't recall soldering irons cutting wire.

I've soldered these things up before, soda blasting should make it nice & clean but if you have a radiator shop available, use it.

Re: MMO non believers

Plugs seem to handle it well. 1 'cap full' with every second fill. Nothing excessive.

The bottom leaf holds to the axles. If you have doubts to it's strength, then replacing it is a good option.
It's only a bad option of the other leaves are rather poorly, as they do the heavy...

Re: MMO non believers

Can't get MMO in my country so i use A.T.F. sometimes.
Smells a bit funny but it does cushion the valves nicely & lubes the stems & tap.
Also seems to reduce the piston slap sound by cushioning...
