Re: Wheel Balance with Dyna Beads

Old 31,
When the dyna beads bunch up, lightly tap the valve stem with a light spanner or similar. The slight vibration will help them drop into the tube.

Re: What's the latest you can remember anyone using an A?

Re: 4 for a road trip in a roadster pickup! Sure!

Hi Steve,
Legalities aside, I have taken two grown up youngsters in the back, around the block once and found the rear spring bottoming out on the slightest little bump. Might only be my pickup.

Re: Model A Parking Brake build

Mark,
My 29 Chevy has a ‘split’ handle lever as in your 3rd photo, unless you prefer the push button lever as in the Ford.
Happy Christmas to all

Re: How does the top work on my Roadster Pickup?

I found this on the forum some time ago, don’t know which car it is for but should be of great help to someone. Keep in mind that the top can’t fold down on a PU with wooden side...

Re: How does the top work on my Roadster Pickup?

Hi Steve,
The leading edge of mine is only held by the two wing nuts either side. I have a small air gap between the screen and the top, which does not really bother us.

Re: Double Nutting advice

Katy,
Try putting pressure in both direction, alternate a little tighter, a little back until you have broken the lock then go back and forth until loose.

Re: 1929 Roadster PickupTtop

Hi Paul,
Do you have wooden railings on your loadbin as in my avatar?
If so, it will restrict the soft top frame from folding down.
