Re: What have you found working on your A?

When I took the seat out of a 31 Tudor I bought,that made for an interesting bunch of,if this car could talk comments.A couple of guys standing there probably talked about it for a half hour.I found...

Re: Strange E-brake observation

It sounds like somebody used the parking brake to slow the car down,using it as a service brake.I've seen those things torn up terribly inside from being pulled while the car was moving.I think you...

Re: Hand riveting tool ?

Re: Hand riveting tool ?

A good pair of Vise Grips and a ball bearing will do it too.Get a couple of extra rivets and practice first.Because I do hydraulic work I have a bunch of assorted balls around for the detents in the...

Re: 1931 Roadster

The one in the picture under my name is a June of 30 standard.I bought it with about 28000 miles,it had about 35000 when I sold it a couple of months ago.If you see a 30 DeLuxe with an oval speedo,it...

Re: AvGas in the ford

There is also a story about it being named Phillips 66 because it was the 66th attempt at a formulation.I had read the naming after the octane in an article by the Conoco oil company about the...

Re: AvGas in the ford

I just don't know why you would need 100 octane gas for a car that was built when 67 octane was the good stuff.One company was so proud of their high octane gas they named their stations after...

Re: Starter armature, is it good?

For the most part if the armature has a problem,it is just no-go.Unless it is something rare,or obsolete nobody will pay to have it fixed.About 15 years ago I pulled the starter out of a big...

Re: Starter armature, is it good?

I don't get too excited about the mica wearing faster in an A starter.That starter turns around 1500 RPM while cranking,and it only turns a short amount of time.If I remember right the generator...

Re: wood piece at seat riser

That's the side to side piece I referred to.As he pointed out to you,the notches go upward,it may have to be trimmed a little.It divides your storage place in half.If you look at your seat...

Re: wood piece at seat riser

Not sure what you are asking.Do you mean the piece that goes in the bottom,from side to side?That fits in the center so the seat won't bend.Or,do you mean the 3 pieces that bolt to the back of the...
