Look at all the holes!

I'm removing a dented gas tank from my 1929 Coupe to replace it with a better one. I thought you would like to see all the holes drilled in my firewall somewhere along 90 years of various owners....

Re: 1929 Coupe block placement

Thanks, Gary. That was the final piece of my puzzle! Now to get to work on my poor coupe body. Years of weather in Alaska near salt water was pretty rough on it. I am amazed that all the glass is...

Re: 1929 Coupe block placement

I have the old blocks, and they are almost identical to these smaller ones, but without the bevel. Actually, all my old blocks were in pretty good shape except the ones under the cowl. When I go to...

Re: 1929 Coupe block placement

Thanks, 1955cj
I have his book and it helps. But the block for Hole 9 (at the rear of the frame) does not look like the longer one in the illustration. The one that came with the body block kit I...

1929 Coupe block placement

I've painted my body blocks and trying to figure out exactly
where they will fit on my frame. My coupe body is not ready to
be placed yet, but I want to know if I am on the right track!

Re: Main Wiring Harness 1929 Questions

Here is a photo of what I did. The wires to the taillights went through the hole in the crossmember and the stop switch wires branched off at that point. If there is a better way, I am open to...

Re: Who sells sealed beam conversion rings

I have a pair of "bug eye" set-ups that I took off my 1929 Coupe twenty or so years ago when I bought it. I'm thinking about putting them on eBay but I'm having a tough time trying to figure out how...

Mystery Horn

I've attached some photos of the horn I took off my 1929 Coupe several years ago. At the time, it worked.....a beep-beep sound, not an Ahoogah sound. Can anyone tell me what it is? I cannot find any...

Re: How to remove 1929 Coupe cowl blocks

60 degrees here in Walker Lake, Nevada, today! Sorry, Chicago. I got the old cowl blocks out once I lifted up the front of the cab and could get under it. Three of the broken-off bolts popped right...

Re: How to remove 1929 Coupe cowl blocks

All my other blocks came off easily. I have all new blocks and pads ready to install once I get these old cowl blocks out and new ones put it. A lot of the metal underneath the blocks is rusted thin...

Re: How to remove 1929 Coupe cowl blocks

My next step is to block the front end of the cab up on cement blocks high enough for me to get under this area and see if I can drive the remains of the bolts up and out of the subrails. Then I can...

How to remove 1929 Coupe cowl blocks

I finally got my new body blocks for my 1929 Coupe, but I can't figure out the best way to remove the old cowl blocks. There seem to be what's left
of the two rear-most bolts that have either...

Re: Gas today-can you beat this?

$3.49 here in rural Nevada. That's bad enough, but add that to the long distances we need to travel to "get anywhere"......it's a real drag.

Re: Firewall

Speaking of holes in a firewall, my 1929 Coupe has so many extra holes that were drilled in it over the years it looks like a sieve in places. Any good ideas how to fill those holes without a lot of...

Re: Testing ahooga horn

Re: Testing ahooga horn

Re: Conduit ferrule does not fit headlght bucket

That's a thought. I notice there is a "Headlight Socket Holder" in some suppliers' catalogs. When my headlight plugs get here, I will see what I can do. Thanks.

Re: Conduit ferrule does not fit headlght bucket

Thanks. I was thinking that, and then saw the note in Bratton's catalog about 1928 to early 1929 had smaller sockets. Now the trick will be to hardware my headlamps with connectors inside the shell....
