Re: new bottom radiator hose leaking

A&L is a family business specializing in Model A parts BUT radiator clamps also can be used on our V8's. No web site, phone or fax, I believed closed on Mondays??

Re: A head on B engine

Do NOT use the silicon head gasket. Do a search on the A site for info. Go with a BEST gasket or copper. Bert's in Denver can hook you up. FWIW

Re: Transport recommendations

Re: 32 Ford Cowl Vent

United Pacific re-pops both the 32 coupe and pick-up and sell individual parts. Most likely their cowl vent and latch mech are the later style. FWIW

Re: 1931 Model A Serial Number

Re: 6 volt/12 volt jump box

Gave up on the original plan. I picked up a 6v/12v battery charger/maintainer at AutoZone today (Schumaker).
Thanks again for the help and advice.
