Re: Just bought a 1931 Model A

Did you do the floor yourself? I want to do the same to my garage floor, but not sure which paint to buy. Home Depot has that Epoxy mix paint, but I was told it might not hold up.

Oil pump or intake Manifold Vacuum hole bolt

I replaced that cheap screw in bolt they sell, because when I went to unscrew it, the top stripped. I replaced it with an easy to remove brass bolt. Its the bolt below in the picture.

Oil pan bolts

It would take me 30 minutes to take out the two front oil pan bolts because of a tight fit between pan and crossmember, so I grind down this socket, and it made it as simple as removing the others.

Re: Wooven or molded?

That's not all it does Tom, there have been many issues with garden equipment too, if you use 87 or lower, they will void the warranty on my leaf blower.

Re: Four Blade Fan

When I wanted a new blade, my vendor told me to get the two blade. My radiator does not go above 160, so I guess it works just fine.

Re: Snyder’s 6:1 head
