Re: When is a "Model A" no longer a "Model A"

I would say if it still has an original Model A Frame that it is an A. If it has an aftermarket frame it is a custom vehicle that simply has some part of an A body on it.

Re: TCP Wheel Color "Straw"

Straw was a pinstripe color and was not used on wheels. I am sure that what you are looking for is Tacoma Cream.

Re: How common a practice is this?.

I once had a battery that was both 6v and 12v. It had a solenoid that supplied 12 volts to the starter and the rest of the car was 6v.

Re: Rear spring spreader

I don't use a spreader. With the spring disassembled it is fairly easy to install the main leaf by itself. Then simply reassemble the spring. I am doing this now myself. My reason for this is I am...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

It has been stated that the bearing inserts are Small Block Chevy. Probably one of the most popular engines ever made. Bearings available at any auto parts store.

Non-Demountable wheels needed

I need a pair of 23" 30 x 3.5 non-demountable front wheels for my 1921. Wood condition is unimportant but metal must be good.

Re: Rear leaf spring questions

The poor man's way to install the spring is to take it apart. Then you and a friend can stretch the spring to connect the shackles. The reassemble the spring using the extra long bolt.

Re: So is this pick up a 29 or a 30 ?

Before you can tell someone that it is or isn't an Early 1930 you have to know that they did exist and how to spot them. The cab change didn't take place until June 1930. So all of the early 1930's...

Re: 2 post car lift

CM2 MCB8/MCB11 1963-1969

That doesn't work out real well if you need to drop an axle or remove suspension.

Original shocks on lowered car

I have just replaced the springs on my car with new reversed eye springs from Posies. These springs will give me a two inch drop. I realize this will change the amount of upward travel of the shock...

Re: Juice brakes

I don't need a new part when an original will work fine and cost 1/4 the price. :)

Re: Attempt to remove body bolts, or just cut them off?

Tighten them until they break. Using Kroil will loosen most of them. Apply it and let it sit overnight. http://www.kanolabs.com/msn/?msclkid=c3f74ffc8b3e17b14bf711366d8ce064
