Re: Shaving stock head

Cool Hand Lurker, You sound just like me. I enjoy my retirement just like you, out in my shop on the mill, lathe and surface grinder, maybe welding some things together for no good reason. Just...

Re: Do any 1928 Starter Bushings Exist?

Hi Tom, Chris is right about being easy to turn out new bushings on a lathe. Most starter bushings I have encoutered have been made of "oilite", a sintered bronze material that is pressed and bonded...

Re: Woven Linings and Cast Iron Drums

From what I read, most have good braking using this combo. This leads me to believe that Smitty has a problem other than the combination of drum and lining.

Smitty, have you had the drums on a...

Re: Brought another one home.

Well spent $300. Almost looks like a mid 40s IHC pickup hood that makes the boat tail. Cool!

Re: Upsetting

Keep taking care of mom Wuudie. No matter how irrational she may seem, she won't be around forever. When she is gone you will have a clear concious and a nice model A.

Re: Winter in the NW

I agree with Pluck but not fun to drive school bus in. Farmers happy with cover for wheat.

Re: The First Blue Bird School Bus

Great video. Would be neat to see some model A school buses. Any out there? I question Mr. Luce's discription of shifting into high gear on the mode T. It seems to me that the time I drove a model T,...

Re: Not Model A related, but car related

Seems to me the last trip permit I got was about $20 and good for 3 days. I get mine at the local courthouse auditors office. DMV might work too. I know that cars licensed in Spokane need to be...

Re: powerful words like barn fresh little olé lady

To me the piece looks vintage and in pretty good shape. Awful pricey for me though. Way older than model a if it has been sitting on a barn shelf for almost a century. That would put it last being...

Re: Surprise!

On the front bumper, the passenger side turn light (I assume it to be turn) is amber and the driver side is a very dark color. Are Canadian turn signals different colors side to side? Just currious.
