Re: Directionals

When I tried that one, it worked perfectly -- until I started the engine. It would not work at all with the engine running, Worked OK with the engine off.

Re: Grab handle

[QUOTE=Y-Blockhead;1975181]The one issue keeping me from fabing one is I don't want to drill mounting holes in my dash rail.

Getting the old ones out is pretty much like pulling teeth. Grab them with a pair of vice grips and rock them back & forth while pulling.

Re: whats the best & worst car to buy in 1930

A 1930 vehicle with sealed beam headlights did not exist, unless retrofitted.

In the United States of America, sealed-beam headlights were introduced in 1939.

Re: Thermostat update.

You don't have to tip the radiator to get a hose on. Just remove the top of the T-stat housing (4 bolts). Easy-Peasy.
