Condensers

Is there a way to test condensers? I got these recently, but don't know if they're any good. Thanks for the insight.

Re: Selfmade a top boot

Brad, thanks for posting the close-up pictures!
Interesting that none of the snaps along the top of the seat back are fastened to anything. I though it was just me.

Re: Selfmade a top boot

Werner, I think the snaps are to attach at the top rail behind the seat, but I'm not certain. There are no snap fasteners behind the seat top on my roadster.

Re: Selfmade a top boot

Werner, here are some photos of the top boot for my '28 roadster. I don't know if it is correct per the Judging Standards, but it came with the top. I hardly ever put it on, it's kind of a PITA. If...

Re: "Belting the Vic"

Shew, the center support plate pictured has the tab attached to support the sliding seat rail. The rail is riveted to the tab. Your leatherback Victoria would probably not have the sliding driver's...

Early Ď28 hand brakes

Working on my roadster, I noticed the cut out in the left side frame rail.

Re: Back flushing

I put together the same system that Tom suggested with a trip to Home Depotís plumbing department, all PVC pipe. You can probably do that as well.

Re: Radiator shroud fit question

It’s been a while, but it was difficult aligning the shroud tabs on my radiator. I don’t know what brand the radiator is, but I gave up in the end and used black zip ties at the bottom.
