Re: 1929 Coupe metal header cover help

Thanks, Don. Very helpful information. Right now, all I have for the top is the header....not even the pieces that go back from there over the doors. I'm wondering if it will be possible to install...

Re: 1929 Coupe metal header cover help

Thanks. The photos are helpful. I'm wondering if it is easier to put the header and cover in place before the visor. Right now, I have the visor on but it's no big deal to take it off. I'm guessing...

I have a used metal header cover that needs help. Photo one shows how it lines up along the front of the header. The second photo shows the driver's side end and it seems to fit ok. The third photo...

Re: Who Remembers Model "A" Parts in the Sears Catalog?

Hang onto that 49 star flag! But if you ever want to sell it, let me know. I was 11 years old and lived in Haines, Alaska, when Alaska became the 49th state in 1959. My family moved to Alaska from...

Re: What spark plugs are you currently using?

I never paid any attention until I saw this thread. I have Autolite 3076 and they seem to work just fine. I checked two of them just now and they look just right....not black or burned clean. I see...

Re: Cooked corn in radiator

Good plan. I have an ABDick 360 printing press in my garage/print shop, and it has three cylinders: plate, blanket and impression. I don't use it often, and one day after it sat unused for a while, I...

Re: Cooked corn in radiator

Apparently, my neighborhood chipmunks used the upper tank for a storage spot. I did not notice this when I installed this radiator that I purchased on eBay. Live and learn.

Re: Cooked corn in radiator

Is there an easy way to adapt a garden hose to the lower radiator hose? I'm thinking that letting the car warm up to soften the corn residue, then draining the radiator quickly while it is still...

Cooked corn in radiator

The first time I ran my newly-reassembled 1929 Coupe, it overheated quite quickly. I did a dumb thing by opening the quail radiator cap before she had cooled off and got a geyser of hot water and...

Re: Really old gasoline question

I found out today that our local land fill takes motor oil and crap gas and puts it in barrels to be taken to where they can properly process it. Yay!

Re: Really old gasoline question

I've seen a couple comments about using stale crap gas to kill weeds. My wife says almost everything in our desert yard qualifies as a weed. I'm hesitant to pour gasoline around as it might get into...

Re: Really old gasoline question

10 gallons of gas here would be $38.90. I will probably just keep it for washing parts.

While not directly a Model A question, but maybe related. I have a 1977 Ford Econoline flatbed truck that has not been driven for several years. I'm in the process of draining the gas tank to...

Re: Side Mirror Installation Tips Needed

It turns out the second pin was harder to remove than the first. After I had used the longer pin pusher, I tried to drive the hinge pin out with a longer punch and a hammer. That didn't work! I...

Re: Side Mirror Installation Tips Needed

I was so happy with my driver's side hinge mirror and how easily the pin came out, that I ordered one for the passenger side. I decided to get a head start on removing the current hing pin and ran...

Re: Side Mirror Installation Tips Needed

I installed my hinge mirror today. I used the pin removal tool from Snyders and it worked easily. I soaked the pin with PB Blaster last night and did not have any problem at all.

Re: Fire wall grommet

Thanks, I think that it must be for a 1930-31. The kit says it is for 1928-1931, so that would explain it.
