Re: Roadster door hinge screws

My roadster is a 1931. I’m missing one screw on the bottom hinge, and it appears to screw into the hinge. I can’t get the other two screws out to look at them.

Re: Engine pans

I agree with Whirnot in post #6. I think they help with cooling the engine, but certainly will catch your air-maze filter if it falls off ! Also, they are original equipment, so I have them...

Re: Looking for LED replacement bulbs for tail and cowl lights

Actually, the bulb I mentioned is too long for the cowl lights, but great for the tail light, and, if ordered in red, great for the brake light - even behind the amber lens - it’s I’ll lights up as...

Re: Front generator bearing screeching.....

Yes - I’ve always oiled both bearings every 1000 miles or so. The generator was rebuilt by a local automotive electrical shop in the early 70’s, and I‘ve had no trouble until now, but I am now...

Re: Fun project voltage regulator

I’ve bought 2 in the past 2 months. Even though their website says they’re out of stock, they do have some. Go ahead and place an order.
