Re: How to remove 1929 Coupe cowl blocks

My next step is to block the front end of the cab up on cement blocks high enough for me to get under this area and see if I can drive the remains of the bolts up and out of the subrails. Then I can...

Re: Gas today-can you beat this?

$3.49 here in rural Nevada. That's bad enough, but add that to the long distances we need to travel to "get anywhere"......it's a real drag.

Re: Firewall

Speaking of holes in a firewall, my 1929 Coupe has so many extra holes that were drilled in it over the years it looks like a sieve in places. Any good ideas how to fill those holes without a lot of...

Re: Testing ahooga horn

Thanks, Bob. I can see now that one of the wires is connected to the circuit when the horn button is pressed. Automotive wiring often puzzles me, even though wiring a complete house was a no-brainer...

Re: Conduit ferrule does not fit headlght bucket

That's a thought. I notice there is a "Headlight Socket Holder" in some suppliers' catalogs. When my headlight plugs get here, I will see what I can do. Thanks.

Re: Conduit ferrule does not fit headlght bucket

Thanks. I was thinking that, and then saw the note in Bratton's catalog about 1928 to early 1929 had smaller sockets. Now the trick will be to hardware my headlamps with connectors inside the shell....

Conduit ferrule does not fit headlght bucket

My conduit ferrule is too large to attach to the socket holder on the headlamps. There appears to be a 1/16" difference in size. I'm trying to

Before my current re-build, I had Float-a-Motor mounts but still had the old U-Joint cap with the "finger" that was over the cross-member. The finger did not rest on the cross-member, but had some...

Re: Do you drive your A in the snow or stormy weather?

I drove my 1929 Coupe in Haines, Alaska, for several years. No problem in the snow! Cracking the windshield open an inch or two kept frost off the inside of the windshield. Of course, good winter...
