Re: Model A touring engine

[QUOTE=P.S.;1085023]I have a motor rebuilt by Turlock Machine. It can run 55 MPH all day in a stock Model A. That doesn't mean as much as you think.

Thumbs up Re: Who makes the best and most complete..

Thanks Rick for your earlier post about Bauer. I bought mine from Chris he was great. He built mine with turn signals in the cowl and tail lights. Very clean install. I couldn't be happier.

Re: D-nut / Clinch nut

When I did search I used "D-nut/Clinch nut" and got nothing, but after your response I just entered "Clinch" and found more info. I just need to figure out how to use the search more effectively.

Re: D-nut / Clinch nut

The D nuts get peened over but what holds the nut flush while it gets peened. Is there a tool that holds them in place or a tool that can roll the lip over? How was it do when they were made?

D-nut / Clinch nut

I would like to replace some of the D-nuts or Clinch nuts in the sheet metal lip that holds the floorboards. What is the method to remove and replace them?

Re: A Venice Police Model A Fills up with Purr-Pull Gasoline in 1930

None of the vehicles have police markings and they are all white. A motor cop in uniform was probably enough of a marking. The Model A has an exempt plate, with what appears to be red cowl lights...

Re: Amp Meter Mounting

It really did remind me of a Crackerjack compass.

Great idea which gives another idea (no old bicycle inner tubes laying around) an o-ring around the back of the gauge and bend the tabs over the o-ring.
