Re: rust in fuel tank

Been there after trying many quick fixes over 3 months, ended up taking out the tank and having it cleaned and lined. End of frustration and now the car runs great.

Re: 28 Canadian Roadster questions

Don't be fooled by parts on Canadian cars. I've found some of the parts can be 3 to 6 months later than the American production cars. My car is a Oct of 28 Body build, but it has a solid front...

Re: Question about rear Housing Bearing

Thanks for all of your input guys. This is a big help. I'm lucky because a friend of mine is a transmission and rear axle tech on antique cars. (That's all they do.) He's going to do the assembly for...

Re: Question about rear Housing Bearing

Hi Tom: Would you have a picture of the race for axle housing. Maybe that's the difference. That the race is quite large.

Re: 29 Model A Front Wheels Shaking/Swaying

Check the Caster. Should be 6-7 Degrees. Negative. (Top of the King Pin back). A Magnetic protractor works well or a bubble level with the bubble 90 Deg.s to the axle. Every 1/16 of a inch equals 1...

Re: 28 Canadian Roadster questions

Yes the tail light is 28 and early 29. (I think it changed to the Tea cup style light around Dec. ) The bracket that holds it should be a cast part and it bolts to the rear body rail.

Re: 28 Canadian Roadster questions

Do you a picture of the tailight? If it's 28 and early 29 it could be a drum style that mounts off of the body. With the "Robertson" Screws that tells you it's a Canadian car. The rad shroud says...

Re: Alternate rear axle

Depends on what you want. But a rear end from a Ranger P/U can be made to work. You'd have to check the width. Lot's of them around, but will take some fabricating to make it work. I've used them...
