Re: Early '28 hood question

Put it on Craig’s List or E-Bay with an exorbitant price and see if you can reel in a hot rodder. The market will set the price.

Re: Disconnect switch

Dean,

I don’t think anyone can tell you have a 12 volt system by looking under the hood. Even if you’re running an alternator It won’t give your secret away because many people run 6 volt...

Re: tell a Model A related story

Re: Need help to ID '30 roadster top, deluxe vs standard

Re: Aluminum radiator

Gil,

The Wizard website shows radiators for 1932 cars but none for 1928 - 1931 cars. Did they stop making radiators for A’s?

This thread dates back to January, 2017, so first few pages are already out of date.

Re: Need help lowering roadster top please

For me, putting the top down or up on my ‘29 Roadster, it’s a lot easier if you make it a two person job. That way, it’s easier to keep from “pinching” the top material. It’s also easier to put the...

Re: My first iron OHV casting!

It looks like both the exhaust and the intake valves are in the head. Is the head based on an existing design or is it a new design?
