Re: Locating dimple on timing gear

Re: How much balancing beads

I'm running them in my fronts, little over 4oz each side.
Just make sure same amount between wheels.

Re: Vintage clock repair ?

The "A" in Model A stands for "Do it yourself"

Re: Help Identify 31 Slant Window Fordor

Re: Help Identify 31 Slant Window Fordor

If it has the smooth fire wall it's an early '31, indented came out later.
