Re: 1934 Wagon colors

Either way, the crank hole covers were aftermarket items, not Ford-released accessories.

Re: 1934 Wagon colors

The maroon on the coupe in the photo below is a good match to the original color based on cars that I have seen that have not been repainted. Unfortunately it is evidently overcast in that photo as...

Re: 1935 Phaeton inside door handle position.

With respect, there were no English-built '35 phaeton bodies, as the bodies were imported from North America and mounted on English-built chassis. There's no way the modest market for that body type...

Re: 1934 Wagon colors

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Which is very similar to the KRW original design in terms of how it attaches to the left side of the block.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

If those head studs are new ones from Snyder's, I'll remember not to buy any from them as they are all too long by about 3/16" - 1/4". That's surprising given how fussy many Model A restorers are...

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,


The original K.R. Wilson engine stand adapter for four-cylinder engines did indeed support the engine block from the side (opposite to the manifold side).

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Chris,

You really don't have a choice about the upper flywheel housing as it is attached to the block behind where the flywheel goes and you cannot install the flywheel after you install the oil...

Re: installing door glass 1934 3 W

Ford did not use setting tape originally for door window glass, but rather a u-shaped rubber channel with a lip on one side facing outward to minimize water entering the door.

Re: 34 Ford front fender tie

Trevor,

The fastener on the top was originally a slotted binding head screw, not a hex head screw (bolt), at least in the U.S.

Re: 1932 Roadster Frame Rail Sag

Then the frame is perhaps bent in two places, the usual place above the kickups for the rear axle as witnessed by the bulges on the sides of the frame rails at those points and somewhere behind the...

Re: Local Estate Auction 1935 Roadster Sells for $53,925.00

Past a certain age, there is such a thing as too much coffee (as it is a diuretic).

Re: 1932 Ford Speedometer Thread

Given the placement of the opening for the odometer, it's a Stewart Warner speedometer (before they starting having their name on the face).

Re: 1932 Roadster Frame Rail Sag

A not uncommon fate for many pre-reinforcement '32 frames, especially those with rear mounted spare tires. The combined weight of the spare and a full tank of gas and enough of a bump in the road to...

Re: 1935 NORS brake drums

It appears to be a '32 front axle and not either the '33 or the most common, the '34 version. (All of which are functionally equal.)

Perhaps of greater interest in that auction would the counterbalanced crankshaft already ground and ready to go.

Re: Local Estate Auction 1935 Roadster Sells for $53,925.00

I agree completely, but some just don't "get" the 30 or whatever rule. Each generation has their own unique "wish I had one of those" lists and it is ever moving forward. Sure, there are...

Re: Woodie shop burns

Mike Nickels has confirmed that the GoFundMe listing is legitimate. Yes, he was insured, but like for most of us, it never covers everything.

Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

On a '32-'34 V8 block that could be a fatal mistake leading to having to sleeve the block to save it; Fortunately, at + .060, there's lots left in a B's block cylinders.
