Re: Model A Oil Pan Installation Questions

You're welcome.
My engines don't have pan leaks. I attribute it to this method of install.

Re: Front end shimmy solved

Take off your tie rod and drag link and examine your steering balls. My guess is that they are egg/football shaped. This was the case with my death wobble

Re: Running Single Plate in California

The law hasn't changed
You are supposed to run two.

Re: Need wheel bolt swaged into rear hub

Any one with a 50 ton press should be able to do it. You may need to provide the swedging tool though. They're cheap though from the vendors

Re: Differentiel gear ratio change?

No they all came standard with the 3.78 but I bet a dealer or two may have changed the ratios
I have a rear end with a 4.11 R&P in it. Someday if I get to build my hill climb car that's going in it.

Re: Model A & AA radiator shell the same?

The simple answer is no.
28-29 is the same shape but painted black not chrome.
30-31 is a painted shell with no widows peak at the top of the radiator it just goes straight across from side to side
