Re: where can I buy 6v 21/3 c.p. bulbs?

Ten of them $27.50 each.

$1.30 per candle power.

Each headlight would be as bright as a 21st birthday cake?

Re: MAFCA TecTip - Lub Steering Gear

Penrite steering box grease has only been produced in relatively recent years that I'm aware.

That tip may be from the days when you did what you had to do to get by.

Re: Storing a Model A vertically

Take the diff out and the front end out at the spring. Drop the chassis frame from the engine and stack the engine and front and back ends in the corner somewhere.
