Re: Rear Brakes

If you could remove the axle nuts with your fingers that means all of the torque was going through the key. Check the axle for cranks starting to form. If it was me I would have the keyway...

Re: Pressurized Radiator

Remember a pressurized radiator will probably cause your water pump to leak.

Re: 1931 Deluxe Vs STD Coupe

Check the standards but I believe cowl lights were an option on standard cars.

Re: Early Ford Hydraulic brakes in 1931 Fordor

So we have a starting point how about pictures of your backing plates (at 6 o'clock) and your master cylinder. Also the linkage. Does the linkage give you the correct ratio for the master cylinder....

Re: Odometer reset

I think the real test would be whether or not it was done to defraud a buyer. Another situation would be that the whole speedometer is often replaced during a restoration. I doubt it would ever be...

Re: Considering converting sealed beam back to original......what does this entail?

Sounds like you are headed in the right direction. Be sure to get the reflectors from Bratton's or someone that handles their reflectors. They spent the money to make the correct tooling, many of...

Re: 31 five window value

I am not sure I understand your comment, maybe it needs to be expanded. The car is a 1931.

Re: Brake drums

Contact local Model A and Early V8 Clubs and see where they take them. Be sure you don't take them to someone that has never done it before.

Re: Model A Transmission

If you had it apart you may have missed the groove on the gear when you reinstalled the tower. Any recent work?

Re: selling my 1930

Check with your banker and see the best way. Maybe a new account just for the transfer and then close it?

Re: Foam in my coolant

Foam can also be caused by some types of coolants. Did you just recently change brands?

Re: Ford Model A Dashboard Color

Of course Dave is correct about the use of the slant window terminology. When you said it was a 1932 I suggested you move it to this forum from the Model A forum where you made you initial post. ...

Re: Paint removal

Remember there are early (one hinge in center) and late (attaches on both ends). Also I believe 3 window is unique.

Yes they are, or used to be, available as new.

Re: Could Use Some Help With License Plate Restoration

Post your general location, there may be someone close. When you decide on someone look them up in the archives to find out what people think of them.

Re: Wheels

By US standards you have the wrong wheels but you should add your general location and where the car was assembled because foreign countries may be different (just guessing). You might ask the...

Re: location of rubber window rests on Deluxe Roadster top

Check underneath and see if someone filled the holes. I thought all of the cars had them. Any chance yours is a reproduction body?

Re: Engine

"xint" means it is time to get new glasses. The word used was "xlnt" which I assume means excellent.

Thanks Russ and burner. Unfortunately that is a photo I posted to show the "X" and not the frame in question.

Re: Is this a standard 21" Model A wheel?

It could just be the photo but those lug nut holes sure look oversize. If they are it would be easier to start with a better wheel. I sure miss the Reno Swap Meet that Bill Harrah used to host.
