Re: Powder coating AA truck wheels

John, powder can be applied as thick, -or as thin as the applier wants. To be more authentic looking, try using the Cadmium colored paint from places like Eastwood. Then if you scratch the coating...

Re: Ron Kelley

Yeah Tom, I also learned on social media that RK had passed about a week or so ago due to Covid. While I did not always agree with some of his ideas, he definitely was known to be an innovator. I...

Re: Four Post Lift Recommendations….

Just to muddy up the waters a little, we are considering a single post lift that is portable where we can use it in many areas of the shop. Technology in the lift industry has really changed over...

Re: '28 Tudor: Wood blocks

My research counters this. Many of the drawing I have list the specifications just as I attached on the attached PDF file below. Now to clear, some anti-squeak items do mention cloth reinforced...

Re: Original color ignition cable

Black 16 gauge.

The Red was only used on the Ignition Switch down to the Coil. There are two different sizes on those but I don't remember the exact change-over date but I am thinking latter part...

Re: transmission

Yes.

The weaker the spring that holds the shift lever into the transmission top, the easier it is to do this.

Re: Rear window Q.

No.

Can one be fabricated? Likely. Just copy the DeLuxe 45B Coupe window. The biggest hurdle I would see is fabricating the window trim.

Re: Exhaust and Intake Manifold Decking

Bud, I am not sure I totally agree with that statement. I am unaware of an assembly drawing for the A-9425 Manifold and the A-9430 Manifold parts. The parts books do not reference this nor do I...

Re: Cowl to firewall screws

Russ, that is to be riveted together with the head on the backside and a waffled peening on the forward side. It uses a 3/16" Truss-head rivet. The location of the hole is fairly critical to have...

Re: Exhaust and Intake Manifold Decking

To answer your first question, it does not matter if the manifolds have been mixed/matched. And, it doesn't even matter if the thickness' of the manifold flanges are of different measurements...

Re: Steering Arm Balls

I had someone recently tell me that A&L were/is no longer doing them. Can anyone confirm this?

We have done them in-house however our length of set-time just makes us unprofitable.
