Re: The A will not move

I hope your friend appreciates the fact that the car broke in his driveway. It's a good car that leaves you at least within reach of a cold one.

Re: Tail light stays on

Are you sure it's not the brake light bulb that stays lit? A common problem with A's.

Re: leaking gas tank at steering column bracket

I repaired a similar leak, really just a stain and an odor, with silicone seal on my '30 cabriolet. That was nine years and 20,000 miles ago and it has not reappeared.

Re: CA to TX, long story

It was a pleasure meeting you and traveling with you on that trip, Dave. It was my first long distance trip in an A, and the start of a passion that time has not diminished.

Re: Centering Brake Shoes

The 1932 Service Bulletins say a .005 feeler should pass clearly between
the lining and the drum at all points.

...and how is that accomplished?

Re: carburetor 13/32 deep well socket

I somehow missed this thread until now and would like very much to be added to the list for two sockets from the first, or second run if necessary.
Thanks for making this happen!

Re: 1929 pickup

Sorry for the long delay. My pickup, which is 75" high at the center rear of the cab, fits easily into the 73" high opening of my enclosed trailer. I don't think I'd want to try driving a sedan into...

Re: 1929 pickup

If you are driving it into a ramp rear door the cab height can be a bit taller than the opening, as the axles will be straddling the lip of the opening when the tallest part of the cab goes through....
