Re: Tudor front seat questions

For cups and front seat hinge, read page 438 of the service bulletins. I didn’t look for the bar type, but I think they ran out in early 28.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

It has 5 journals for the cam and either a 3 or 5 bearing journal cam will work in it.

Re: 1929 A headlights

Just so you know, the vendors, not all of them, can supply a 2 wire harness for single bulb with or without cowl lights. The cowl light wire exits separately from the 2 wires going to the headlights....

Re: 1929 A headlights

I think it might be the other way around in your case if what you currently have, 2 wire sockets 1/2Ē, and your harness is 3 wire. If you have an early 29, they should be single bulb reflector 2...

Re: 1929 A headlights

I think I know what your problem is. You have what some of the CD vendors call 28 head lights. They have smaller 2 pin sockets for your conduit connection. Originally your light switch probably had...

Re: 28 Tudor header brackets missing

At the end of that triangle piece in your photo should have a right angle tab with a hole for a wood screw. This is a very weak area on 28-29. 1930 was completely different up there. They had an...

Re: Connecting rod end play

What is the balance of your crank, rods, pistons, flywheel and clutch? Believe it or not it doesn't hurt to balance the pulley up front. You could also have a bent crank. I had an engine with a...

Re: non adjustable valves

I think you have the wrong lifters. If you rotate enough that the lifter is all the way up and you can’t get a wrench on the flats of the lifter, then it’s too short. Look at how much thread there is...
