Re: 29 Tudor interior door panel question

How did you cut the...

Re: Hand throttle notches

Will that work or break something? I have the same problem, but I have been reluctant to try bending the rod in place. Is this a common solution?

Re: spark plug caps

Re: XM Radio On 6 Volts Positive?

The cigarette socket plug that is used to charge those 5 volt devices will only let 5 volts thru whether it is plugged into 12 or 6 volts. Maybe that will help you get it done. The socket must be...

Re: steering column removal

You don't have to remove the pedals if the sector and starter are removed. Just saying for future readers.

Removing the starter gives clearance to angle the wheel and column out the door. If you...

Re: Cabin Fan

A 12 volt neg ground cell phone car plug reduces 12 or 6 volts to 5 volts. Just be careful to wire the ground as positive. I run my phone and GPS off of a Model A 6v battery this way with no problems.

Re: Installing Modern shocks

I think the bolts from the rear radius rods will work and are available from the suppliers.
That is what I used to attach the brackets for Ken Davis shocks. You can check it out easily.
