Good deal Chap.

Keep us posted, and lets see that next old car that you acquire! We know you'll be on the hunt for another collector car:) It's hard to not have SOMETHING in the garage to tinker...

Re: bmw woes

BMW and Mercedes are nice cars when new, but they are over-engineered.

They are a maintenance nightmare. Parts and labor. I know of a guy that spent $2200 having the two front shocks replaced on a...

Re: Using 85 octane fuel

I've got a gasoline globe from the mid-thirties from a gasoline distributor from Missouri. ' Mann's 68'.

68 Octane was considered hot stuff back in this days. They wouldn't have known what to do...

Re: Brake Light Switch

Terry I think that is the one that Snyder's and Bratton's is sourcing, from A&L.

You know it will be right;)

And, 50 bucks for a good switch is cheaper than being rear ended.

Re: 1936 Pickup Bed Questions

Mac's pickup truck beds and parts are hard to beat.

Re: That "Opportunity Knocks" Engine

I'm no fan of JB weld that stuff never worked for me.

Do it right have it pinned and welded up. A good machine shop can help you.

I know of a Model A engine rebuilder that did the JB weld...

Re: Using Ford Barn as an distraction

I am VERY sorry to hear your bad news. That is the worst thing to happen to a parent. I can't imagine what you and your family are going thru.

God bless

Re: Rotella T4 oil, dirty oil

No. I used to run the Air Maze airfilter on the Tudor but one day it fell off somewhere out on the highway, and the car ran better after that anyway so I never bothered to replace it.

That was on...

Re: Rotella T4 oil, dirty oil

I run Motorcraft 10W30 and change once a year in late-fall before the winter storage, and it is never really very dirty at all.

Re: New Radiator and Losing Coolant

Re: What color is my coupe?

That looks like a solid little Coupe, fun car!

I like those '35 Ford rims with the 600/16 radials. Nice paint job on them also maybe powder coated? I need to try those out on the '36 Ford...

Re: How Many Model A's are left ?

I live in a small farming community. In our town and within two miles of town in the country we knew of 12 Model A Fords. All but one were restored and running. The unrestored one was a '30 Coupe...

Re: 1928 Oil Pan

That's kinda what we ran into with our Sept. build '28 Roadster. I think the post 1928 oil pans with the small drain plug are fine. If you're running a clean engine and modern detergent motor oil it...

Re: Proper crankshaft grinding

Interesting, Thanks for the video link:)

On the cost of re-surfacing... would a guy be money ahead with a new Scat crank or Burlington crankshaft? Just curious.

Re: Model A Horn

I bought one of A&L's Stewart horns and the quality is amazing. It works fantastic. Kept the original in a box on a shelf in the garage.

Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

You're probably right on the restoration cost, and, the guy did a lot of the work himself. Could you imagine hiring out that level of restoration. Yikes.
