Re: Steering Damper

Unless you have a steering wheel with no play at all, you will benefit by having a damper.
It will help to keep the car from wandering so you don't have to keep correcting it with the steering...

Re: So long

No reason you can't have both a Model A and a 47 Ford flathead coupe like in my avatar!
Both of them bring back memories. I have two sons and one wants the Model A and the other one wants the Coupe...

Re: Dearborn Hotel Update!

I assume that is the same place as the Dearborn Inn? We stayed there and the room cost included two tickets for any of the venues. We took in the museum and Greenfield Village. When you consider...

Re: best way to dry gas tank that is in car

Alcohol is a solvent. It attacks some materials but not others so beware.

Re: Electric wiper arms

That's a pretty worthless answer to the question. Their stuff is probably made in the same place where all the other vendors get their stuff too.

Re: Headliner 1930 Tudor top bow spacing

Thanks, RRW. I didn't even catch the 1995 date in your post. I will use the excuse of being over 80.... ;)

Re: Headliner 1930 Tudor top bow spacing

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
That is what I needed to know. So the headliner should be taken out first to get an accurate measurement. That probably has to be done by a local shop to make sure...

Headliner 1930 Tudor top bow spacing

I am going to order a new headliner for my 1930 Tudor. Is the distance between the top wood bows standard for all the Tudors or can the spacing be different on any two cars? Some of the suppliers...

Re: Finally done

If you are into making your own machines, a treadmill motor and speed control makes a good direct drive power source for a planishing machine. Used treadmills are really cheap too!

Re: lime scale removal

I don't know if I would use Dawn or any other like product. It is concentrated so you could easily get too many suds. You would have to rinse it out with cold water a few times.
It is great stuff...

Did you have any instruction in sheet metal forming at McPherson? If not, that is the next step if you are really into restoration. And it is fun!

Re: Squeaky throwout bearing?

That is generally the sound that a failing throwout bearing makes. It will likely have to be replaced.
