Re: Rearching brake shoes.

Striking or pressing the shoes out of shape, you have a very slim chance of not putting a twist in the shoe. Then they will never perform as designed. Although I have machine arched hundreds of...

Re: Snyder's taller seat springs

Misquoted in thread title. The back rest is taller to accommodate a shorter cushion, but I don't have correct dimensions for either.

Snyder's taller seat springs

On of our club members gave me a seat cushion he had made for a 30 ccpu. My truck had the wrong seats in it.

Re: oil leaking friom shift tower

That hole is to prevent pressure from building in the transmission. It should be kept clear. Never seen it leak. I am assuming the oil level is at the plug?

Re: Dip stick use question

Just take it out of gear, let out the clutch, rev it up, push in the clutch, slip it into gear. Comes easy with practice.
Of course it you are turning a corner, signalling, braking, and down...

1930 ccpu paint

Re: Building a Luggage trunk

Yes, I have, and it was a fun project. I used the plans that are on the mafca website, and modified them a little to fit my rack and suit my wants. At the time I was able to get material from Labaron...

Re: Month of manufacture

No, the frame number does not match the title, the engine number does. But none of this matters to me, the engine number matches the title so plates are not a problem.
I might have given to much...

Month of manufacture

I recently acquired a 30 CCPU, and the title as well as Radiator shroud and splash pans are 1930. Not surprising the engine number shows a 31 serial number, obviously someone changed the title to...

Re: '29 A Town Sedan, over heating

As Wick said above make sure it isn't too full the motometer measures steam, not water temp. It should be just above the core. If there is too much water it will look like it is overheating and then...
