Re: Radius ball cap nuts...

Make sure you are using the correct nuts, they are much larger than the standard 7/16 castle or slotted hex nut.

Re: For those who don't have a four post lift......

LOL, like that idea. I dropped one of the wing nuts for the battery hold down in the grass under my 48 F2 Sunday. Laying on the ground, I could not see it, so I dropped a shinny object (wrench) next...

Re: 1927 dashboard

The ignition switch is in the center of the light switch. The light switch is the part with the handle.

Now for the kicker, we can't see your dash so don't know what else may have been added. I...

Re: curved-handle adjustable wrenches (not 'A')

Re: Estate Sales/auction

Re: Ford Model T Coupe

Except for the red hood/bonnet, that looks a lot like the one I brought home back in the early part of this century! (around 2008) Had to hold the cab together with ropes to bring it home.

Re: For those who don't have a four post lift......

Jack the car up and use jack stands. Forget the creeper, hate those things, cardboard or piece of carpet. Not a fan of ramps, never seem to get the tires in the right spot. Not on far enough or on...

Re: Do you take your Model A to the local self serve car wash?

Re: best guesstimate needed on used part-

Been a vulture standing or was close to the trash bin! Sold most of what others considered trash, so it was found money. :cool:


Biggest drawback now days, cost of shipping.

Re: Cheap Reproduction Head?

April 12, 1940! :) Just because the selling price was maybe low, does not mean it was cheaply made. Pre WW2 so could have been a good grade of iron used.

Nope. Without them in hand or photos, no one can see what they are to even start guessing. T's didn't have shocks. You will have to take them off and try to do some serching on line to see if you can...
