Re: Factory Wood Graining

I believe the effort put into a restoration is worth credit. Hand craftsmanship is less common these days in our modern world. I like the look. It represents an art that involves the labor of love. I...

Re: Hand Operated Windshield Wiper

If the hole thru the windshield was done clean and true, there should be no room for wiggle. No grommets no washers. As fundytides said, the tension from the rubber blade keeps it in place.

Re: Model A engine pans

Shew01 … I would get rid of that paper air filter on your carb, swap it out for the steel screening type. Eliminate the fire hazard.

Re: Original BOYCO canister

You need the other two for a set they came in 3, oil, water and gas and were painted white for oil, blue for water and red for gas. I think they were for the earlier Model T days.

Re: Gas gauge repair question

Use the BRASS FLOAT you will not have to replace it.


The Zenith carbs were originally made with brass floats, why did the gas tank use a cork float ? Henry should have thought about that.....
