Re: Recommended hole size for drive rivits

With respect, pre-WWII Ford patent and body number plates were attached with round head spiral thread drive rivets into existing holes in the firewall, not shot directly through to pierce the sheet...

Re: Help identifying EV8 parts

Tim,

With respect, it is not a '32 column drop, but rather of a later vintage with a different on/off plate and lever and wider spacing of the attachment holes on top.

The one at the top of...

Re: 33 ignition switch

The parts catalogs only list parts that were serviced, not every last part that made up the whole. The subject plate evidently was not offered as a service part.

Re: Door and Window framing

Ash or any other hardwood that does not readily split, as original. Softwoods such as pine are a bad idea, especially when it comes to tack retention as well as strength. The wood in the B pillar...

Re: I pickup a old Firestone Tire 18 inch

It appears to have a post-WWII tread design. It's for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles.

Re: 32 3w question

I should have added that they make (or used to make) all three versions (A, B, and C suffixes).

Re: I pickup a old Firestone Tire 18 inch

It's not original '32 equipment as that would be a 5.25 x 18 tire, not 5.25/5.50. Where was the tire manufactured (that's also molded into the sidewall near the outer edge). The three likely...

Re: 32 ford ooga horn

The '32 horn with a tapered rear cover is a motor-driven horn (i.e. Aoogha). The later '32 horn with a round cover is a vibrator horn (i.e. Beeep). Each has its own unique bracket, the latter being...

Re: I pickup a old Firestone Tire 18 inch

Isn't the number you cite, K817263A, the code? Is it molded into the sidewall?

A&L no longer sell at retail, just wholesale. They are a supplier to Snyder's and other Model A dealers. The male dovetails that they have are one of the Model A versions and they will work on a...

Re: Two rare 33-34 accessories?

The '33-early '34 dashes are interchangeable, LHD and RHD. All the necessary holes are in both, including for the dash light switch. The one exception is the phaeton/roadster dash as one version of...

Re: Two rare 33-34 accessories?

The instrument panel is early '34 and fairly rare. It originally had a painted or wood grained finish (standard/deluxe) and was used in conjunction with leftover '33 dash panels until the excess was...

Re: 1936 Bumper Bolts

Please reread Michael's listing: "front & rear bumper bracket....", which is six attachment points in total, four in front and two for the rear bumper brackets.

Re: 1936 Bumper Bolts

Don,


Some clarification (and wandering off track) is in order as there were three versions of 40-17758. 40-17758-AR is the stainless clad oval head bolt for '33s and its threads are 7/16-20. ...

Re: 32-34 door latch

Yes, but you will have to add to the link between the latch and the inside door handle mechanism (or switch links if you have the old link from the pickup latch assembly). That link is 12 17/32"...

Re: 1934 ford front fender tie

No flat washer, just a binding head screw. Once the front end components were assembled, it served no further purpose.
