Re: Tudor pronunciation

I have no facts to back this up, but like Fordor, I think Tudor was pronounced like two door. To use the British pronounciation would be too precious for Henry Ford. Edsel might have gone along,...

Re: Old problem but new twist? Coolant loss

I assume there is no indication of a leak? If it is getting into the cylinders, you can typically smell antifreeze in the exhaust.

I had an odd leak in my car that I thought was the water pump. ...

Re: Interest in new restoration project thread?

Thanks for taking the time to do a thread. A lot of work is involved in putting one together. It is like writing a book, but with very short chapters.

Re: Time for Henry to come out of retirement.

Finish it so that you can enjoy it, too.

I find that the largest impediment is inertia, whether it is in your head or physically. I always liked the Nike tag line: Just do it!

Re: repro exhaust manifold

Ford did change the manifold in 1931 to provide more material at the last exhaust port to provide more strength to prevent drooping. In my case I had one manifold that was cracked near the bend at...

Re: Spring Prep

I read "Spring Prep" and thought, huh, winter will soon be upon us. Joke's on me. ;-)

Re: F-8 Trucks

FWIW, I think people would enjoy seeing the big trucks. Like anything else, some folks would need to volunteer to get the ball rolling and make it happen.

Re: f1937 Federal dash

Ford guys like things other than Fords and have a lot of knowledge, so why not ask? I cannot help, however.

Re: I just ordered one.

You mean my 39 is obsolete now?

Very fashionable ladies in the video. To echo what Ol' Ron said I was at a car show last weekend with my 39. A guy told me his father bought a new 39, a coupe,...

Re: Model A Brake Lights

Yes. I have them in my Model A. I bought them from a guy from Australia who is always at Hershey and other swap meets.

Re: Gulf tire co. tires

I suspect very old. Gulf service stations sold tires like many other gas stations back when there were quite a number of Model As on the road. I would guess they are circa 1960s at least. There...

Re: Frame serial number to obtain a title?

You can do it in Vermont, from what I understand. There are forms on their web site, but you need to get a police officer to come look at the number and run it through NCIC and get a letter on their...

Re: Biggest scare in a Model A

We drive them because we love them.

There are situations to avoid. I avoid rain and night time driving. I have good lights and reflectors, but it still makes me nervous. I would be very wary...

Re: Hershey experience

I got there lateish on Wednesday. I drove my Model A avoiding all the major highways. A fun trip, but added to the time on the road.

Great weather. Saw a lot of people, but missed Jeff...

Re: Hershey chatter

True that there are a lot of carts, but I didn't have any trouble with them. In fact, there seemed to be fewer than in years past. Most go very slowly, so no problem. Not to say something can't...

Re: Hershey weather?

Beautiful day today. My Model A handled the parking lot easily. I did see some mighty big holes in the lot across from the Giant Center, so be careful driving and walking. Not sure why the holes...

Re: Seat Belts ?

I installed belts and harness in my 39 Fordor and my 45 truck from Juliano's. Not much room in the truck cab, so no retractors. I used Juliano's anchors, too. I don't want to be in a wreck in any...

Re: 39 steering column cover plate

Funny you should ask. I spent last evening rerouting the emergency brake cable on my 39 Fordor after I removed it to adjust the e-brake. I could not get the turnbuckle to adjust enough while in the...
