Re: Sound proofing\ insulation

When I insulate one, I use Dynamat to cut down on vibrations that cause 'road noise'. Depending on the location, I use foil and " and " Underfelt. In the top, I use piano wire to form a zig-zag...

Re: 2nd appeal for modern Rubelite Red Paint code

Probably because most restorers don't use base-clear when they are restoring. DuPont is no longer in the paint business either, which is why they likely could not cross-reference it.

How I...

Re: Upholstery question

Vern, you gotta help out a little more. What bodystyle? Tell us which bodystyle and I probably can give you the part number for the wadding (-correct nomenclature for "padding") on whatever panel...

Re: Water pump "studs"

Chuck, my initial thought with that scenario is, ...how often do we find ourselves replacing water pumps on the side of the road?

Second, I realize you said a few minutes, but lets just bump that...

Re: Water pump "studs"

Likely a very accurate statement. :confused::rolleyes:

I guess for me personally, I have been on Model-A tours for better than 50 years now, and I honestly cannot think of a situation that has...

Re: Water pump "studs"

Colin, when these first came out a decade or so ago, the general consensus was "why"?? The first part of questioning 'why' is; How often does the water pump need to be removed? I know of restored...

Re: Does anyone know if 30-31 Coupe and Tudor have same B pillars?

Ok, that is the Quarter Lock Pillar Assembly. As I stated above, the part numbers are different however it can be a small difference and it would have a different part number. Unfortunately I do...

Re: Does anyone know if 30-31 Coupe and Tudor have same B pillars?

Jim, maybe we should first make sure we are talking about the same thing. There really is no such thing as a 'B' Pillar in Ford's nomenclature, but I am guessing you are speaking of the Quarter Lock...

Re: Restoring Ignition Coils

I am not sure how it does it. I would think it is more about leaking secondary voltage back to a ground creating a dead-short. You can run a coil for about 10 minutes at the widest gap and the...

Re: Restoring Ignition Coils

Re: Restoring Ignition Coils

Bud, John Holland used to do it however the replacement coil windings he was using was obsoleted which is why he is no longer doing them.

Potting the new windings would likely not be a big deal...
