Re: Original shocks on lowered car

Several options. Shorten a dogbone connector by an inch or so and re-weld it together. You can use just one bolt and weld a key to one of the halves to keep the dogbone correctly indexed.

Re: Best supplier for 1930 Ford coupe trunk floor?

Re: Help ID horns

To me, they look like aftermarket vibrator horns sold by stores such as Montgomery Wards or Western Auto, or ??? to replace faulty original Model-A horns. Since I never have a need for them, I don't...

Re: Brake switch issues

By chance, does this vehicle have the rear of the engine supported on Float-A-Motor mounts? Can we see the Service Brake Cross-shaft to check if it is bent or using incorrect bushings? Either one...

Re: Engine inspection (with pics)

First question, are the spark plugs in order from #1 (L) - #4 (R)?

My initial observation is oil is possibly coming from the valves. The fuel mixture appears to be close based on spark plug tips....

Re: iPhone App to Track Maintenance, Fuel Ups, Etc.

Not an app either, but Excel works fantastic for me as I can keep all of my vehicles on a separate tab. When you own half a dozen antique cars, off-road vehicles, RVs, trailers, personal vehicles,...

Re: ANTIQUE ENGINE REBUILDING RODS vs SNYDERS

I think in many ways, people back then were not afraid of failure like they are today.

Also, there were many books written on theory and design that were read around the turn of the century. ...

Re: Gas gauge tightness?

We see this a lot in gas tanks that we are restoring. Often times the surface the gaskets seal against is pitted or corroded which causes the gasket to leak. The cork gasket can be squeezed into...

Re: 1930 Tudor visor

Tom, it appears you have removed all of the original mechanical fasteners, so my guess is someone has used a mastic-type sealer which is still holding it. It was never spot-welded at the factory.

Steve, how much interference is there? Can/could the drum itself be machined on the outside some to gain the necessary clearance?
