Re: Hood adjustment

I stuck a 3/16" thick and 3/8" diameter nylon spacer inside the front hinge retainer earlier tonight and it seems like it will work good. It pushed the hood back where I wanted it, I still need to...

Re: Hood adjustment

Digging this thread up. How exactly does the fiber washer/shim you describe work in this instance? Do you mean it goes inside the hood hinge rod retainer on the shell or goes on the rod against the...

Re: spring kit for rad

I just wasn't sure if I should crank them down a little more for the head to fit inside the nut and bend the cotter pin over the stud or to bend them around the nut as the attached picture. Since the...

Re: Brake Banjo Bolt

I'll give that a try when I blow it back apart, however I do remember four threads sticking out of the bolt with it through the block with a washer on each side, which should be correct. I'm starting...

Re: Brake Banjo Bolt

The washers I'm using are from the Early Ford Store, but they are just the solid copper ones. Did the original washers have concentric rings like the brass block?

Brake Banjo Bolt

I ran hydraulic brakes on an A coupe like a '39-'48, but I'm having a hard time getting the banjo bolt T to seal. With pressure on the system I get a very faint seeping around the bolt head side of...

Nice looking muffler you made with the Aries flange. I wasn't aware they will sell you just that one piece with the correct flange. You just tell them you would like to buy the "head stock"? Do you...

Re: Brake T Bolt

Thanks for the replies, I'm putting hydraulic brakes on a Model A and ran the lines like the '39-'48 cars. I guess I was over thinking it, I figured it needed two holes in the banjo bolt to move...

Brake T Bolt

Is this the correct 91A-2150 front brake T bolt on the 39-48 passenger cars? It only has one outlet hole other than the inverted end that looks to screw into a hose. I've seen the reproduction bolts...
