Re: "Doodlebug"

That is a model A 4 speed on the engine, and a Ford V8 4 speed behind that. With both in first gear, you could walk faster than the machine will go. I have had several of them, and they are fun.

Re: MARC ballot and Constitution change

All Frictions, Portland, Connecticut. He even had me measure my newly machined drums and contoured the shoes to match. $20 per shoe. He did the brakes for both model A Fords also.

Re: rear hub grease seals

Mine have one snap ring, and it is right at the bearing, not at the seal. You may have done many of these, but not this one.

Re: 31 Deluxe Roadster Cowl Lights?

Another clue is the seats. If they are original (probably not) the standard has wider pleats than the deluxe.
