Re: Leatherback '28-'29 Group

Re: Wiring for Dome Light AND Electric Wiper

Thank you Jim. I've seen these photos and I don't think page 291 applies to my 60-C since the switch in integrated into the light. I think the wiring under the tank should be similar to page 356...

Re: Floorboard - Shift Lever Plate Clips

Thank you for the picture. This confirms that the rivet head is on the bottom. There also doesn't appear to be a washer between the clip and the upset end of the rivet. I don't think they would...

Re: Bead blast cabinet

Re: Hood Shelf Blocks

Synchro, what you are seeing is an oil pressure sender that is part of the temperature/pressure dual gauge that I bought from Snyders.

Re: Rear Bumper Bracket - Straight or Angled?

Thanks again for the input everyone. After digesting the info and doing a little more research, I now agree that the brackets should be swept back about 10­ on each side. It would be useful to...

Re: Rear Bumper Bracket - Straight or Angled?

d.j. moordigian: Thanks for posting the FB link. Both brackets have a slight wave which I'm glad to learn came from the factory (I thought those came from tampering by previous owners).

Re: Rear Bumper Bracket - Straight or Angled?

Thanks guys. Straight out (left side) is correct and angled (right side) is incorrect. Now I know which one needs to be fixed.

Re: 28/29 Briggs blind back top question.

John, it sounds like you may be describing the difference between a 60-C Fordor and a 170-A Fordor, both of which were made in 1929. It's a bit difficult to visualize what you are describing - can...

Re: The 60-A, B, C Fordor Sedans

Todd, I've been doing research on these cars and I haven't come across a 60-A beyond Jan. '29. Where did the April 17, 1929 date come from? The firewall on the gas tank? Maybe the tank was...
