Re: Caveat with Mac's Auto Parts

When I have ordered from Mac's a "black cloud" appeared. Something always would go wrong. TomW's recommendations are the ones I use.

Re: Hurricane Mathews landing

The thing we have here, post hurricane, is theft of gensets in the middle of the night. We chain and lock with a shotgun handy at the door. Mathew was my 4th here.

Re: Hurricane Mathews landing

We got the hurricane in Jupiter but dodged the Worse. Only a fence torn down. The A's were protected in the garage, F150 outside but no problem. Gusts here only to 84.

Re: 31 Deluxe Roadster too much oil, should I drain some?

This is the advice I got in 1956 when I got my first Model A. It worked then and will work now.

Re: 31 Deluxe Roadster too much oil, should I drain some?

To drain a quart, have someone tightly cover the oil fill tube while you loosen the oil drain plug. But, this could be messy. You are not the only one who's done this at least once or twice.

Re: Restorers: Did your body metal parts assemble easily?

This is the story on our 1930 TS...... What a job. If I had known would have bought a finished car. Yes, it was fun, I loved learning and the comradeship.

Excellent list Carl. "I get does it run?" quite often.

Just a Dust Cover

I've been looking for just a Dust Cover. Nothing against waterproof, rain proof, breathable covers but all I need is to cover Duke in the garage. Any suggestion would be appreciated.
