Re: Painting Model A/AA Hubs and Backing Plates

If you are trying to replicate the finish for fine-point, then using alkyd enamel is the most perfect way. Go to your local farm supply store and purchase a gallon or two of their Black tractor...

Re: 29 right tail light

You fabricate it by cutting off the license plate bracket. Then spray paint the license plate lens with Black paint to keep the light from shining thru.

Re: Powerhouse Bakelite Rings

Seth, draw it up in SolidWorks and have it 3D printed on an as-needed basis. Will last forever. You really just need to pull the print and draw off of that. Then export the file to someone who has...

Re: Max Compression Ratio

To muddy up the waters a bit, does anyone remember the diesel fuel conversion for a Model-A engine? As I recall, it was like 16:1 CR on cast bearings. It sure wasn't the compression ratio that was...

Re: steering stabilizer

Marty, if your stabilizer is worn or defective, it may not have added any resistance to the steering. A quick way to tell would be to see what kind of resistance you have when you push the steering...

Re: Gear Tooth Pitting

I may be able to help you out. I have been approached by a local lady to assist liquidating some of her late husband's stuff. I saw a large selection of Model-A gears on a shelf. There may be...

Re: '28 coupe door check straps

The trick we use is buy a package of stainless screws from one of the big box stores. Cut two screws about 5-6 threads from the end. Chuck the cut-off section into a drill and spin it while you...

Re: NICE COUPE ON mafca ONLY 7000......

Your point is VERY well taken. I think it was first stated here about 20 years ago when someone said it is only valuable when they own it, and ain't worth nothing if someone else owns it. :D

Re: Bumper Arm A-17754-D vs. AA-17754-B difference?R

Thanks Bob, I don't know. Is there any EIs listed on the MAFFI page that would show how many revisions? The PPL from 1931 shows a listing on them as being for AA.

Re: Need help polishing a 1931 grill shell

Yeah, if you have noticeable scratches with 1500 grit, then you jumped about two steps in there. Deep scratches should be about gone with 600 grit. Almost all noticeable scratches should be gone by...

Re: steering stabilizer

My advice contradicts Ernie's advice but the steering system on a Model-A is very tight when rebuilt correctly. As such, the stabilizer only makes the steering action heavier IMO. I personally have...

Re: 7-tooth column overhoul

Do as you wish but I highly recommend against this. My experience is the sector shafts are not hardened enough to allow this conversion to use the roller bearing. What happens is the shaft become...

Re: Replating Gear Shift Lever

Use a chemical rust remover such as Evapo-rust or Rust911 first. Then either remove the remaining plating electronically or let the plater do it. It is very easy to ruin a gear shift lever if it...

Re: gas tank date

While the records pertaining to this are inconclusive, most seem to feel this is the date the tank passed inspection (-i.e. Pressure test) and not the date the vehicle was assembled.

Dan, how are you suggesting for a home hobbyist to measure what size they would need?

Re: Door sill numbers

Ed, I'm sorry. I was scrolling on my phone when I read your question and in my mind I was thinking door post for some odd reason. Dave is right, and I was just brain dead on that. Sorry!!

Re: Riveting steel rivets...

I thought the correct size for 1/4" steel rivets was a 4X. Doesn't too large of a driver compact the head and not the shank?






While we are on the topic of rivets, does anyone have any...

Re: windshield tape

You might as well use the correct stuff. Mitch on one of the other forums and sells some setting material that looks pretty close to the original stuff. I would use his instead.
