Re: Need Help -Front Irons & Bow for 28 Mod A Phaeton

Re: Need Help -Front Irons & Bow for 28 Mod A Phaeton

Jim-I think my bow is ok, but I haven't peeled all the top off yet to see. Is the tack wood and the wood in the curved part of your irons ok? I am considering replacing just the irons. Could you send...

Re: Need Help -Front Irons & Bow for 28 Mod A Phaeton

Re: Fan Keeps loosening on water pump

WOody 31 - I must admit I didn't look the hub over for cracks when rebuilding. The hub is steel, and was well used veteran, so I didn't think of it.
