Re: 1929 Tudor 'Barner' count....

Re: Sagging 1 1/2 in rear driver side

I think it is also known sometimes as the Bachelor's sag! My 1928 Tudor and 1928 Roadster are the same.

Cars used over many years with just the driver using it.

Re: Pcd

The rubber suspension (rubber in torsion or rubber in compression) really work well. They have been used for ever.

Re: Making A parts with lathe

Thank you George, I will print those two off. Very interesting.

I assume the electric motor/grinder on the cross slide can slide backwards and forwards in the angle iron frame as the crank turns.

Re: Making A parts with lathe

That is a very clever set up you have there George. I like the system for following the big end journals round. Is it possible please to have some additional photographs of that arrangement?

Re: Something wrong

René,

Is it possible to get some good photographs of the repair and the result of the problem. I think many on Fordbarn would be interested to see the pictures.
