Re: Tool Kit

I paint the wrenches with satin black paint and use gun bluing on the knurled adjuster.
Don, when you do this, do you remove the knurled adjuster before bluing?

Re: Fulton Wind Deflectors

Re: Photo of the attached "crowner" needed...

From memory, I seem to recall Doc Kalinka doing a piece in the Model A News, with a picture.

Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

Looking at the original sales docket, I'll bet the salesman went home that night with a smile on his face. Nice to see an early sport coupe with the correct top.

Re: Oil filler tube with no baffles

Your car is not Canadian by any chance? My early Canadian roadster *CA67* has the identical filler pipe.

Re: AR Muffler Clamp?

Original RHD clamps were a lot thinner, than the regular LHD ones. This was to give a little more clearance with the pedals.

Re: Model A vicky

Magoos in Masterton have one in their shop that they are converting/ have converted. Might be worth a call to Lloyd to see what is involved.

Re: Oldest Surviving Model "A"

Brad interesting piece. Neither one would be 1927 as official Canadian production did not commence until Feb 1, although I suspect that some may have been build earlier for testing purposes etc. I do...

Re: Ford Model A Klaxon horn

Ian, I just had a thought that the base plate on the '32 Sparton is different to the Model A, to accommodate the '32 cover. Someone with more knowledge of this will hopefully chime in with the facts.

Re: Ford Model A Klaxon horn

Hi Tom & Ian,

They were very common here in the 70's and cost approximately $20. They were made by Hutchins. I have an original '32 sparton motor cover, if you need one Ian.

Running board anti squeak.

Was there an anti squeak used between the running board bracket and the running board?
If there was, what was used?
