Re: Reproduction vs. original 1928 Headlamp Socket Assemblies

Re: Blown Head Gasket

Head gaskets blow from time to time. I would make sure the block is good an clean, use a new head gasket and new head bolts. The old ones could have stretched.

Re: throttle rod lever, 3531A

Agree. Remove the column bracket from frame, remove pitman arm and tap the column bracket with a hammer GENTLY. Then slide the lever up the throttle rod and pin. Then re-assemble.
