Re: Brake Service Cross Shaft Reviews

Yes, most 'rebuilt' units I have seen do not have the holes in the 3 levers restored back to 0.376 to fit an original size pin. Kinda seems dumb to buy new brake rods and drill them for an oversized...

Re: rust in tank

I have factory prints for all US tanks. All the prints I have seen in the assembly drawings show baffles.

Re: LeBaron Bonney vs Cartouche

Why not Dave? Since Cartouche is now the manufacturer of most Model-A fabric, what is it about Cartouche? Granted their kits are not 100% authentic, ...but neither is Mike's.

Re: 1930 Deluxe Coupe Windlace

Re: Upholstery Clips - Need Advice

Au-Ve-Co


Their 11406 is the closest to original however I have found you need to replicate the T slot like original for those to work the best. The ones I listed above work fine.

Re: Restoration

Thank you, -and it's not just me, but we have about a 1 year waiting list right now (i.e.: 6-7 car owners waiting). Also, engine shops (-=at least good ones) are backed up too. A thread on...

Re: fly wheel filling

Don't bother filling the hole. If I were balancing the flywheel, the machine will pick-up on the 'light-side balance' of the flywheel and I would drill on the opposite side 180 to compensate.

Re: Restoration

http://www.model-a-ford.com/ROFL.gif No worries as you likely are not stepping on anyone's toes. Most resto shop owners I chat with have a large backlog of work on their waiting list.

Re: Roy Nacewicz

I had spoke with Mike early on and he told me that he was going to try to make the purchase from Marlana. I am super happy as he is a great guy and will continue the business end well.

Re: Smaller wheels for transport?

Welcome to Fordbarn!!

Just look for any older -ton Ford Truck wheels. The pattern is 5 on 5. Let most of the air out of those tires and you should be good to load.
