Re: Brown Station Wagon top material

I'm not sure of the width of the '34. It's probably a bit narrower than a '46. I got conflicting information from SMS, but again I was looking for black cobra grain in 66" width. I probably made at...

We have had this discussion before and I don't know if we ever had a definite answer. If you are looking for a '40 to '48 Ford, then 66" is needed and the only supplier was LeBaron Bonney. The brown...

Re: 1937 Flathead lost bolt... Help!

Some stainless steel, 302, 303, 304, is slightly magnetic when annealed or cold worked. 403, thru 446 stainless is magnetic at all times. Cheap screws are probably 302 or 304 so you might get lucky...

Re: pro or con HEI

Just don't purchase the cheap crap from China that will leave you stranded on the side of the road.

Re: Teflon EZ Steer Kit what do you think?

The nice thing about the Teflon inserts is, that if you put them in, and you drive your car much, you will be able to change them again soon. New balls, the stock inserts and lubrication work just...

Re: 46 wagon spare tire cover

Right, all that loop at the bottom is for is something to grab onto. It's almost like you need another set of hands to help.

Re: Tool for removing tapered parts

Right, the puller is the preferred way to go, rather than beating the part using a "pickle fork". Plus, if you don't have a new rubber boot you can use it over, with the pickle fork, it's usually...

Re: Drake Sale:

My issue with Drake is quality, not back orders. For example, I ordered the rear fender stone guards for my '46 wagon. They attach with four studs that go thru the fender. Three of the four studs...

Re: Drake Sale:

Re: 32 Pa. LicenPlates now legal on my 32 now

True about NY requiring original plates only. Everyone I know sends the pictures of the old plates to the DMV for approval and paints them when they get their registration.

Re: 32 Pa. LicenPlates now legal on my 32 now

It would be nice if all states would adopt the YOM policy. My friend was pulled over on his way to Bonneville by a real hard nose cop. The cop refused to accept the fact that he had 1932 plates on...

Re: 32 Pa. LicenPlates now legal on my 32 now

TJ, some states have a one time fee, but N.Y. also nails us every year, along with a BS annual inspection. They need to soak us for all they can get to pay for all the N.Y. State freebies.

Re: 1932 Roadster

They are available from some of the catalogs relating to early Fords. Just something to let people know what your car is. It has nothing to do with a specific club or award.

Re: So much for Irish Spring and Dryer Sheets.....

I think keeping mice out of our cars is impossible. One of the local guys purchased four large cookie pans. He jacked up his car and put a sheet under each tire and filled it with waste oil. I don't...

Re: 02022020

To go along with that, today's date falls on the 33rd day of the year with 333 days to go. It's a leap year so there are 366 days this year.

Re: Where have all the 34 roadsters gone ?

What great footage! No roll bars and sitting high in the seats. Those drivers must have been pelted with rocks. I can't imagine a rollover! I don't know if it was safer to be thrown out of the car or...

Re: tourque tube leak

I have seen three styles, cork, felt and the rubber (neoprene). If you use the car over time they do "leak". I wouldn't worry about it.
