Re: Gas seepage at steering column

My '30 Coupe had the same problem with minor fuel seepage and associated gas smell. I used Marine Tex GRAY epoxy around the tank bracket and switched to the dash rail bracket as above. That was 15+...

Re: Marvel Carburetor

I'm rebuilding some Marvel carbs as well. Are the choke and throttle plate screws the same size as Zenith? If not, do you know the size?
Thanks

Re: Replacing king pins

Do you belong to a local Model A club? You'll find a world of hands-on help there. When I did mine I took the spindles, new bushings, and new king pins to an old time machine shop. He pressed in...

Re: Adjustable Drag Link

That is exactly what did a number of years ago. I seem to recall I removed 2" out of the middle but I'm not sure. Use the length of the sleeve as a guide for the length of the rod and how much...

Re: Repair of Soft Wood

I used the Liquid Wood & Wood Epox products on the B Pillar wood on my 30 coupe. Not structural wood but it was riddled with tack and staple holes making it near impossible to attach new windlace and...

Re: spring perches, castle nuts, and cotter keys

Are good originals hard to find?

I have a pair but they are not in good shape. The shackle holes look to be built up by brazing but worn egg shaped. The shock link ball is pretty much square. I...

Original Grease Gun Rebuild

After cleaning out years of old grease, this is what I have. What do I need to rebuild it?
The deteriorated layered paper gasket/seal(?) was at the bottom of the barrel. Is that suppose to be there?

Re: Another Interior Handles Question

Buy new handles & escutcheons from Steve at Berts and send them to Craig Riker for butler nickel plating. Top notch work and reasonably priced.

Re: Window Riser Handles and "Show Quality" Nickel Plated Escutcheons

I just spoke with Snyders. They indicated their window handle does "not look exactly like the picture [on their website] and it does have the vein down the middle."

Disappointing about the part...

Re: Window Riser Handles and "Show Quality" Nickel Plated Escutcheons

Well these are from Bratton's. So now not only do the escutcheons not fit these handles, the handles themselves are wrong. This is quite frustrating! Pictures of the boxes the window handles came...

Re: Window Riser Handles and "Show Quality" Nickel Plated Escutcheons

Do your scroll window handles have the "ridge" down the back? I've had someone tell me that the originals did not have this. I can't tell by the drawing in the JS.

Re: Window Riser Handles and "Show Quality" Nickel Plated Escutcheons

I too am very happy with the current scroll handles especially when replated butler nickel. Of course the USA repro escutcheons are really nice. Unfortunately they don't play well together.

Oh...

Re: Window Riser Handles and "Show Quality" Nickel Plated Escutcheons

Sometimes it helps to sleep on situations.

It occurred to me that rather than making the oversize China handle fit the correct size U.S. escutcheon, I will just get a pair of China escutcheons...
