Re: Weird front spring

Thanks for all the notions and ideas. My current plans (highly mutable!) are to make a drawing, including tracings of the spring as it is and of each leaf after disassembly. Then electrolytically...

Re: Weird front spring

According to the various on-line catalogs, the length is right for my car. I guess I'll ease this one apart and start seeing what is worn out or busted.

Unless someone really wants this one and...

Re: Weird front spring

The center of eye to center of eye spring length is 30 5/8".

I don't mind having these groves in the front spring if I use it under my town sedan but it will be a hassle to experiment on how many...

Re: Weird front spring

I'm out of town tonight but I'll take some measurements tomorrow or Sunday.
It fits on a stock A front axle so it can't be too far from stock numbers. Just hell for stout.

Re: Weird front spring

I'm surprised that they would fit between the perches on an A. Something new to me. I'll see if anyone else comes up with an idea.

I suspect I will have to remove some leaves to use this spring on...

Re: Weird front spring

I'm surprised at this crowd. I was sure someone would know what they were!

I took some pictures. Now I'll have to deduce how to post them on here. The groves run full length even around the eye.

Re: Weird front spring

These are normal width and thickness as far as I can tell. I'll measure and take a picture tomorrow. But the really odd things are these longitudinal grooves. By longitudinal I mean from one side of...

Weird front spring

A friend gave me a front and rear axle (model A). They came out from under a coupe (don't ask!). Complete with radius rods and springs.

The front spring is something I've not seen before. It has...

Re: Fodor Murray window regulator

Yes, I should call them. I hate to pester hard working people when I'm not going to spend any money just then. I will have to call them anyway as the bottom rail (that the window seats in) is missing...

Re: Fodor Murray window regulator

So no one knows how long the regulator arms should be?

Re: Fodor Murray window regulator

If you can post a picture of what you are looking for, I'll look at my Murray and see. Like at the rear of the body behind the bumper and between the fenders?

To correct my first post, the longer...

Re: Junkyard find

This Winter I'll strip it down and see how things are in there. From the look of things I suspect it may be the first time it has been apart. My 30 Murray has a block number that matches the title so...

Fodor Murray window regulator

I am working on my 30 Murray Fordor. One front regulator is 10" from the pivot to the center of the roller and the other is 13.5". Anyone have any information as to which is correct? I have a machine...

Junkyard find

Got a call from some friends who run a wrecking yard. "Git over here!". They led me to a rusted out microbus and opened the side door. An A engine and two transmissions. It helps to have Friends in...

Re: RE-VIST....Who makes the "Best" Tubes????

There was a request by John Buckley earlier in this thread for a source of motorcycle tubes. I just bought five 4.50-5.00 x 19 tubes from Motorcycle Superstore. The cost with shipping was under...
