Re: stainless steel cleaner & polish

As the owner of a stainless steel Delorean, the best stuff is Sheila Shine that is carried by restaurant supply companies. No comparison to those listed above.

Re: Request for help with 28/28 Pickup

Re: Berts Model A-Website

Bought the cab corners, upper and lower back panels form Bert’s. Be sure and order the trim pieces that go between the cab corners and back panels.

Re: Tire wheel balancing: is it needed ?

I balance the wheels and drums as a package. Aftermarket drums need to be balanced. I suspect that most ‘barn readers never give it a second thought. FYI, it took 12 ‘35 wire wheels to get 4 good...

Re: HP & Torque For Various Cylinder Heads

Probably the best head is Larry Brumfield’s. However, it looks like Jim Brierley’s new head is a contender.

Re: Install disconnect between 1 and 2, or 3 and 4?

First off, put it in a convenient place so you can use it without opening the hood. I’ve put it on the ground side in RV’s, boats, hot rods and Model A’s.

Re: I've found a legitimate reason to use a 12v alternator on a Model-A

As a long time off roader, I really appreciate heated seats. They will drain a battery if not wired through the ignition switch. Ask me how I know!

Re: Float a motor results

FAM mounts make it easy to remove and replace an engine. Been using them for 30 years and have had to replace the rubber biscuits every now and them as they can become harder than a hockey puck
