Re: Measurement of frame sag

The problem using a straight edge on the bottom is all of the bolt protrusions and the cross shafts. Will try the laser and see if that works. It may not be a precise enough dot, however

Measurement of frame sag

How should I measure to see if I have frame sag as opposed to the body blocks being incorrect and causing door alignment issues? Can I use a laser line and measure at various points?

Thanks

Re: Help - Front End is Off Center

Is it possible that the front axle is off center? When I set a plumb bob down from the center of the crankshaft to the axle, the mark is not on the center of the axle. The mark is, depending on how I...

Re: Steering Gear Box

Snyders can rebuild for you. It will take about a month.

Re: Help - Front End is Off Center

Not sure what type of bolt was used on the spring. Definitely not a square top bolt. Underside nuts were not castellated nor were they cotter pinned. But were tight.

Looks slightly off-center, but...

Re: Help - Front End is Off Center

I think that the bolt is hidden by the crank bearing plate. I am a bit leery of opening up the u-bolts to expose the bolt given the pressure on the springs. Thoughts?

The bend was on the right hand side of the tie rod. The bend in the tie rod began just inside of the frame. See photo

Re: Help - Front End is Off Center

The spring looks to be centered. I cannot see a center bolt, however (just the U clamps). I have the original non-sprung motor mount if that is relevant. I have the hood off and radiator out at the...

Re: Brake service rod

It was cheap enough and easier to order a new rod. Not sure why it was missing. Working through the braking system slowly

Re: New member with a Tudor Sedan

Les Andrews Red book is very good. I have also found the MARC/Model A Ford club of America “ restoration guidelines and judging standards” book to be very helpful as a new owner
