Re: Installing headlight bar

I had the same problem with my 29 Tudor. I loosened the bolts holding the fender brackets to the frame, bolted everything up loosely, then tightened all of the bolts. Whatever works.

Re: 28 Tudor Emergency brake location

To relocate the handleís position, wouldnít the E-Brake cross shaft need to be replaced also, or would the rod to the cross-shaft still work? Asking for a ďfriendĒ.

Re: Changing Grease Fittings to Type

I just went to a local auto parts store with the old grease fittings and had them match the threads for the threaded ones and the size for the press in type. They all fit very well.

Re: Engine noise?

If itís a squealing noise, kind of sounds like a fan belt? You might want to make sure the distributor is well oiled. How do I know this, you ask?

Re: Radiator Hoses

The top hose was originally 7 1/4 inches long, I cut 3/4 of an inch from it. Both bottom hoses are 3 1/2 inches long ( I didn’t cut these). This is a ‘29 Tudor and a new Brassworks radiator.
