Re: Hurd key blanks

Just a few thoughts that may help.

Their cars are usually not out of their sight for very long so security is not a major...

Re: 32 sedan rear upholstery panel

The rear panel tucks under the garnish molding and follows the rear edge of the door opening. The windlace attaches first and the panel butts up against it.
A new panel is flat initially and...

Re: 38 trunk lock cylinder

I have had some limited success removing broken keys using a fine dental pick with a small hook on the end. Make sure everything is well lubed.... once the key is out you can clean the lube out.

Re: 32 PU steering box tilt adjustment ?

DavidG is on the money. Better to use the pick up sector housing. I'm away from all my stuff but there is an obvious difference in the housings. As DavidG stated they are not that tough to find.

Re: Model B fuel pump mystery photo 1932

As DavidG stated substituting a later top on the early base is possible.
Over the years, I have seen many "hybrid" pumps.
The engine doesn't care what's on the other side of the diaphragm.
