Re: Late 31 steel top pickup

There does not appear to be anything under mine but I'm sure there is at least some anti-rattle material there. A 1/2" rope is too big and nothing like it is used anywhere on the late '31.

Re: 31 Coupe Wood (Under side window)

I hope this helps. You are also missing a small 4" long block that goes between the bracket and the frame of the window. It's the same thickness as the window frame. That missing piece of wood is...

Re: 31 Coupe Windshield Pivot

That "pin" is more of a clinch nut which is threaded on the inside. I'm missing one of mine but haven't started looking for it yet. You could, of course, be talking about the two pins/rivets that...

Re: 31 Coupe Wood (Under side window)

Here is a picture of mine. That beveled piece held with a screw appears to be hard rubber but could probably be made from hardwood. I don't remember what it's for.

Re: Pronunciations

I grew up with Willis but then again I'm from the South and we talk a little different. At least my Yankee wife tells me. The coupe is a koop.

Re: Front and Rear Spring Restoration

The instruction sheet that comes with "A" Springs says to use a "high pressure" grease to lub the leaves. I put on two of them , front and rear.

Re: Anyone fit toolboxes to the Pickups?

Here is what I put it mine. It's just an old wood tool box I picked up at a yard sale. I ran a bolt through the bottom of it on each side and utilized one of the metal floor strip bolt holes so no...

Re: Classtique Upholstery

I bought that kit from Classtique for my '31 CCPU. Good quality material and workmanship. I had it professionally installed. Very happy with it and will be going back to them for my coupe.

Re: front spring

I also used A Springs. You get brass shakel bushings with the spring as well.

Re: Machining new batch of Thomas heads.

If you have Windows, when in Windows Explorer, right click on the photo and you should see a "Resize image" menu selection. It will resize the photo down to kilo bit size.

Re: 29 Tudor pinstripe - wrong & now right!

You know Jim you can say that for only the day it rolled off the assembly line. After that it was subject to accessorizing with what ever was available "in the day". ;)

Wick is most likely correct. I am having the same problem and after doing some work I found the GAV needle bent making it almost impossible to turn.

Re: Missing Water Drain Petcock

Yes, my recent purchase of a 31 coupe had a line with no petcock in it. I've since replaced it.

Re: Shipping

I've bought and shipped manifolds USPS and price is very reasonable. About $10 or $15 as I remember.

Re: What's with this vendor stuff??

If it says "Ad" at the very beginning the order in the list is determined by Google based on fees paid by vendors.

Re: Besides carefully, how do you move an A' with no rear axle?

Assuming the front end is in place, get yourself a couple of the dollies made for moving furniture. Take some 2X6s and build a support (saw horse kind of support) for the rear end that can be...
