Re: Your most useless NOS parts

Years ago I was shown a wire loop with about 30 NOS Model T sidelight brackets, Ford script and all, that only fitted the 26/27 New Beauty windscreen setup. The were all for one side only!

Re: Loud Noise when car decellerates while i n first and second gears

I had a similar problem many years ago. I had an old friend (RIP) go over things with a stethoscope, his opinion was that it was the pinion bearing. We pulled it apart, and he was dead right. Bearing...

Re: Tool Kit

I paint the wrenches with satin black paint and use gun bluing on the knurled adjuster.
Don, when you do this, do you remove the knurled adjuster before bluing?

Re: Fulton Wind Deflectors

Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

Looking at the original sales docket, I'll bet the salesman went home that night with a smile on his face. Nice to see an early sport coupe with the correct top.

Re: Oil filler tube with no baffles

Re: AR Muffler Clamp?

Original RHD clamps were a lot thinner, than the regular LHD ones. This was to give a little more clearance with the pedals.

Re: Model A vicky

Magoos in Masterton have one in their shop that they are converting/ have converted. Might be worth a call to Lloyd to see what is involved.

Re: Ford Model A Klaxon horn

Ian, I just had a thought that the base plate on the '32 Sparton is different to the Model A, to accommodate the '32 cover. Someone with more knowledge of this will hopefully chime in with the facts.

Re: Ford Model A Klaxon horn

Hi Tom & Ian,

They were very common here in the 70's and cost approximately $20. They were made by Hutchins. I have an original '32 sparton motor cover, if you need one Ian.
