Re: Bouncey Car Needs Shocks

The Stipe shocks come adjusted pretty close to where you want them. Just a little adjustment in or out is needed depending on how your car rides.

Re: Where to start?

When you repair or replace the gas tank, install the steering column brace that mounts onto the dash rail. I did this on my 1930 Tudor when I bought it. Had no problems with the original set up but...

Re: Hutchin's Horn Adjust

Leo I stand corrected. I thought that the horn that was on the car was a Hutchins. Now I don't know what it is. I had to take the back cover off to adjust the darn thing and it still sounded...

Re: Hutchin's Horn Adjust

I had a Hutchin's on mine and the adustment is inside the rear cover unlike the Spartans which have the adjustment screw accessible through the back cover. So you'll have to remover the cover.

Re: Sick ahooga horn

Besides cleaning and oiling it, you might want to back off one notch on the adjustment. The "ga" sound comes from the motor spinning down after releasing the horn button.

Re: Adjusting Stipe's shock adsorber on a Roadster
