Re: Model A Tudor seat help

LOL......I was wondering if those were some sort of re-pop. After looking at your pics again I thought what the hell......it should not be cast but stamped steel. Glad you have it solved.

Re: Radius Rod Question

Yup...what Bob C says. $25.00. Just make sure your wishbone ball is up to snuff. Should be nice and round and I believe 1.5 inches in diameter.

Re: brake linings

Were the shoes actually arced to the respective drums? "Almost all the parts have been replaced" That could mean different things to different folks. What type of lining on the shoes?

Re: Firewall

I believe there is a "C" clip inside that holds the speedo cable. It threads into the "D" nut in question.

Re: Spark Advance Lever adjustment

Short answer..........Loosen the clamp where the column slips over the steering box and rotate accordingly.

Re: 29 Tudor rear window install dilemma

Had very good luck using "Big Stretch". I was going to use auto glass bedding but it can be a real mess and stinks for a long time too. Several club members turned me on to Big Stretch.
