Re: attack of electrical gremlins

This is a long shot ................ You mentioned the fuse blew and I'm assuming it was the fuse mounted off the starter switch since the car started to run poorly. Do you also have an inline fuse...

Re: Cleaning Steering Gear Box

The short answer is that you canít remove the grease inside the box without removing the column and taking the box apart. The longer answer is that your steering box probably needs a total rebuild....

There was a change in the window regulator shafts that the handle attaches to. Shafts on 28/29 & maybe early 1930 cars had a slot cut in the end of the shaft. When the handle was installed, the set...

Re: Some Progress has been made

Way cool guys. Progress indeed. The hot rod black looks great. No better base than DP 90. Love the radiator cap ornament. This brings back the good old days of high school hot rods. We thought they...

Re: Rebuilding my generator...

You don't have to remove the bearing. The felt seal goes in front of the bearing. It is sandwiched between the wave washer mentioned before and the bearing retainer. The felt seal actually originally...
