Re: Station wagon wood

Go to Jamestown Distributors website. I found a lot of info on products there. I am re-finishing parts on my Huckster and am using Total Boat Gleam marine spar varnish. So far so good.

Re: Brake kit

I completely rebuilt the brakes on my 30 Huckster. They worked great. Then I decided to install Ted's kit. The car stops just as good but has a different feel that I like a lot! I can't really...

Re: Late 31 oil pump shield?

I bought several from Model A Medic that fits the earlier trays. I would assume it has been trimmed. They fit fine.

Re: Mod a water neck for gage

Not sure about yours but my water outlet is plenty thick enough to drill and tap for a pipe thread. I have done several and none have leaked.

Re: Bad Stud thread

Here it is in it's current state. I will take a plastic razor blade and trim the blue sealant off after it sets up around the water neck. It just looks better.

Tudor Window Felts

I need to replace all of the window felts and channel felts in my 29 Tudor. Where should I buy quality pieces and where can I get some instructions and possibly pictures and details on this?

Re: Bad Stud thread

If I didn't have another one I would have given it a couple of coats of copper spray and re-used it. Heck, I have even used aluminum spray paint successfully. I did keep it just in case.

Re: Bad Stud thread

I figured since I had another gasket I would go ahead and use it. Looks like I was successful on my 2nd time.

Re: Bad Stud thread
