Re: Engine pans

An adhesive rubber liner may act as a noise reducer, but it may also act as an electrical insulator... The engine pans are an integral part of the the grounding system, and need to be connected...

Shackles wanted '31

I'm looking for a set of front and rear shackles for my S/W Cabriolet...
Prefer not to have to use repros, so I know they will be hard to find.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Re: Rust in pease

Any more to the story???
It's not some kind of over-the-top Halloween decoration is it???
Mighty intriguing...

Where are we?
Who did this?

Re: Model A prices...going which way?

What's an A worth? Great question!
Two key elements in all value statements turn on supply and liquidity.

So over 20 years the # of A's for sale in...

Re: Radiator Emblem

Slightly off topic, but:

Did all of the original emblems have 'Robbins' marked inside them?
From 1928 through 1931?
Were they the only suppliers?

Re: not your average coupe

So do you run with a pair of original engine-to-frame splash pans? Or?
