Re: Brookville Roadster more valuable?

Steve, I generally find that there are those who are buying a Model-A for the enjoyment of owning/driving that really do not care about authenticity. If it is painted Red and the buyer's spouse...

Re: Rear Main Bearing Oil Behavior

I'm not sure I 'buy into' this theory. I can't help but wonder how that "professional" determined that??

I would think the restricting the oil flow to decrease volume is a band-aid for masking a...

Re: Chickasha

Re: Brookville Roadster more valuable?

Being very truthful with you, I know of several Model-A Roadsters that have sold for WAY more than that $30k amount, and several on the planet could not be purchased for twice that amount. The most...

Yeah, good catch. That is what I get for answering something while I am on hold on the phone. I make the correction.

Re: Labaron Bonnie

While I cannot be certain, at this point I feel that it will take a court order for you to get them back. This will likely take an attorney filing the paperwork for you. The expense of that may...

Re: SnyderÂ’s 6:1 head

I also get the part where you are "over it" but as an engine machinist speaking here, I will tell you that if the gasket is blowing in different spots, it is my opinion that the issue is NOT with the...

Re: Forming the front upper corner after welding

John, the best is going to be 19 gauge sheetmetal that is proper formed and TIG-welded into position. If you don't do this correctly now, it will haunt you throughout the rest of the restoration...

Re: Kwik Way Boring Bar Fixtures

While that is potentially a true statement, I tend to believe the bigger issue is many Model-A hobbyists do not want to pay for the time it takes a "good" machinist to do a quality job. The 'hacks'...

Re: Kwik Way Boring Bar Fixtures

Re: Kwik Way Boring Bar Fixtures

The vertical stanchions are actually called Bar Bearings by Kwik-Way, and they attach into the Bridge which has a form of a collect to hold the bar securely after being located.

Re: Chickasha Pre-War Swap Meet 2019 Roll Call

Depends, ...how early? Supposedly the cut-off is 1942 on parts, and it is predominantly a brass-era and Model-T type event however there is some 30's stuff that comes.

Re: 1930 ford 2 dr sedan rear side window

If you see rear windows rolled all the way down in a 30/31 Tudor, ...that likely means they won't roll all the way up. The reason yours won't roll down any further is because the bottom of the glass...

Re: Water Inlet Questions

Use JB Weld or a Kevlar-stranded body filler to 'bodywork' the rough casting where the hose will have a smooth surface to clamp to. This should do the trick. Try to avoid just using RTV as a way to...

Re: Splash aprons need replacement

Fortunately I have been able to find good original aprons to use as samples to modify the reproductions. Also having a Pullmax with custom dies to reshape the lip helps save time also. One area that...
