Re: Double Nut Lifters Secrets

George, welcome to Fordbarn.

Re: 31 Roadster wood floor pattern

This is where a drum sander comes in handy. The ¾" Plywood has a nominal thickness ²³⁄₃₂" which is 0.719", and the ¹¹⁄₁₆" Plywood should have a finish size of around 0.687". That means if we remove...

Re: 31 Roadster wood floor pattern

The biggest difference is most commercially available reproduction floorboards are the incorrect thickness.

Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

I have discussed this very topic on more than just a few occasions. My general feeling is it often deals with the owner's skillset. Many restorers that do Fine-point restorations are not doing it...

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Update on Post #9

While you have the front drum off, pay close attention to the brake wedge to see if it is binding on the stud as the brake is depressed. Especially if it has the floater with the pin inside.

Re: spring perches, castle nuts, and cotter keys

Yes, look at post #3 above. Those were absolute junk. They did not fit the front radius rod correctly and as Roger said above, the holes were not drilled correctly. I think most vendors sent them...

Re: Engine upgrade

From the perspective of an engine rebuilder, it is WAY easier to install a high-compression head at a later date than it is to install larger intake valves. If your budget is tight, opt for a new...

Re: Kwik way lbm

Re: price on car

Seems like he already has it running. The motor was locked up (i.e.: stuck) but added some oil and it goes real fast now.

I think the rest of your advice is pretty spot-on for this level of car. ...

Re: Head gasket?

Hey Werner, -the thing that you must realize is a Model-A head is very flimsy and will distort easily. When resurfacing the head, it is easy to distort the head just when anchoring it down however...

Re: Head gasket?

A couple of things to point out here;

Copper 'Spray a Gasket' coatings are a "band-aid" for something else that is wrong. I cannot think of a legitimate reason for using it if the cylinder head...
