Re: Clutch pedal adjustment for "play"

Re: Need to purchase an outside rear view mirror for a 29 Tudor

Re: Question about distributor/condenser for Ford Model A - 1930

Welcome,


Not an expert but, replace the condenser with a burn proof one get new original points and far as the coil goes get newer 6 volt one. I am assuming your bushing are still good.

Re: luggage rack

On my 4 door I opted for the extensions and I still cannot get the spare tire off without removing the rack. One of the guys in the club added about 2" and then it worked. But they need to be really...

Try a truck brake shop. They still arch shoes and might be able to do yours.
