Re: 1932 original tailpipe

I looked in the Green Bible but found nothing useful. You might look at the pipe in some of the lubrication charts. Also it you added your general location someone might have one.

Re: Gasket for B block with Thomas Head

Technically you are correct. The steam holes are not covered but open through the gasket to the Thomas head. Since there are no holes in the Thomas head they are sealed at that point. What I...

Re: Gasket for B block with Thomas Head

Use the Model B gasket as it will more closely follow the combustion chamber. It will also cover and seal the two two steam holes at the center of the engine.

Re: Cyl. Head

The quick and easy way would be to post a picture (top and bottom sides). Another more accurate way would be to measure the volume and calculate the ratio.

Re: Bent Spoke Wire Wheels

Try looking into a company called "Motor Rim and Wheel". That may be the answer.
