Re: 31 model A rear end question

Yes, upper is to fill and check , lower to drain. Only fill till when you put your little finger in to your first joint on it. That is all that is needed. Check level a few days later after driving .

Re: Model AA High Speed Rear Axel

The 29 should be a worm gear rear end and the 31 should be a ring and pinion set up. The 29 might be a fast rear end than the 31.Jim

Re: Hot 4 Banger radiator question

Go for Berg's , if runs to cool put thermostat in it . Vintage Precision is a nice way to go . You can then put temp probe in below thermostat and see temp.

Re: Preparing a 1931 Instrument panel for plating

You need to strip off all plating to repair underlying metal . Use very fine sand paper to make a mirror finish. What you see in metal before plating is what comes thru as your finish. Truckerjim
