Re: Hagerty insurance ?

Nothing unusual here. Iím sure others were named in the suit that you havenít mentioned. Typical lawsuit, name anyone and everyone attached, theyíre just figuring out who is going to pay. Hagerty was...

Re: Mode A Piston expander/ knurling tool to Buy

I actually, fully understand knurling, but you personally donít know me, so Iíll assume you are not talking to me directly. Knurling is outdated technology from the time when new pistons were of...

Re: Mode A Piston expander/ knurling tool to Buy

Re: '29 CC PU assembly confusion

I donít see how you are wrong. There are two holes on each side in the cabs for the A and AA frame as you stated earlier. The A frame only has holes for the outside holes.

The inner holes do not...

Re: commercial color list for 1929

Here's a picture from a year or two ago, but the last time it was in the sun. It's more complete now, but buried in the garage. The splash apron is black to give you contrast to the blue.

Re: commercial color list for 1929

Gunmetal Blue is a misnomer, it's more of a green. All of the 29' commercial colors are green based, and look green when on a car in the sun. Most people confuse the greens for Rock Moss, but...

Re: Wisdom of Stopping Engine by Choking It Out

Lots of armchair opinions within, and yet these cars have managed to survive 90 years with all sorts of abuse and neglect.

Choking the engine to kill it will do absolutely no harm to the engine,...

Re: Solution for audio system in model A?

Since you’ll use your phone and Bluetooth, I’d go this route:

Nothing to hide, no wires to run, plus it will be a cool conversation piece.

Re: Radiator.... Mac's What say you?

You get what you pay for. Your time is worth something too, so R&Ring various radiators for trial isn’t worth my time or money. Buy a quality radiator and be done with it. Time is money.
