Fred,

Re: Top kit advice

For anyone that has already purchased the top material do not leave it folded. Any folds that sit for a spell will have a permanent crease. Roll the material to avoid any creasing.

Re: Special coupe questions

Re: 1931 Side bowl Carb Why?

Some states did not like the gas shut off valve being located inside the cars. I heard one of the states was Pennsylvania. The indented firewall was to relocate the gas shut off valve. The sediment...

Re: Splash shield bolt locations

There are two carriage bolts per splash shield where you have them now. I think the other two might go in the other splash shield.

Re: Shock Absorber Needle Valve Thread

John,
Brattons is having them reproduced under their part numbers 24939, 24940 and 24950.
Give Jeff a call at 1-800-255-1929 and ask about the thread size. It is not listed in their catalog.

Re: King Pin Reemer

Re: Ford script cast in block just above water intake?

Brad,
There are also some entries in the daily engine logs that have GOV on them. Maybe this engine number falls into one of those blocks.

Re: Bore diameter in Axle for King Pin

Rusty,
There is something on the print that is very tough to read that I think is the + - sign followed by "x 45 c t sunk. I think the x 45 c t sunk is the chamfer at both the top and bottom.

Re: Mileage Program (MARC) anyone here doing it?

The MARC mileage program is set up so once the car is registered the mileage goes with the car rather than with the owner/s. So if you buy or sell a Model A and it was entered in the program, the...
