Re: Will a 46 rear end fit into a 41 without modification??

If anyone comes up with a '41 rear spring (or just the main leaf) let me know. I put a later rear into a car and there's no room for the Panhard bar.

Re: Removing a snap ring

I don't think that there's a tool for taking one apart with the ends cut as you mention. I figure that when they make the rings, they start with straight stock and cut it into lengths with the cut on...

Re: rear hub grease seals

Seals have a "V"shaped sealing element. If you apply pressure to the "top of the V", the V will spread out and hold pressure. If you apply pressure to the "bottom of the V", the sides will collapse...

Re: Omg not sears

I don't think that Sears, themselves, ever made ANYTHING. It's always been just a sales organization.

Re: Heavy duty screwdriver

My dad had one in his "collection" of tools which was pretty sparse indeed. I can't remember the last time I saw it or where it ended up.

Re: Cowl vents?

Thanks Karl. My plan is to get a Brookville body next year. I've been wanting it to be a '29 but being able to get a cowl vent into a '31 body makes up my mind. Now, the question is will Brookville...

Cowl vents?

I asked this on the 'A' forum but I'm not really expecting an answer. Anyway, has anyone grafted a '32 cowl vent into a tankless '30-'31 cowl?

Cowl vents?

Has anyone here ever grafted (or considered grafting) a '32 cowl vent into the top of a tankless '30-'31 cowl?

Re: 1934 Brake/Stoplights

You might see a car on the road with both tail lights lit. When the driver steps on the brake, one brake light comes on and the tail light on the other side goes out. This is caused by a bad ground...

Re: Pulling the body on a shoebox woddy

Here's food for thought. I built a "frame" of vertical 2x8's that are cross braced at the top and tied into the roof rafters above. There's a length of 2" pipe through holes on each side with 5/16"...
