Re: Trico Windshield Wiper Motor Doesn't Oscillate

It may depend on the wiper, early with the screw-on front cover or the later version with the snap-on cover. I had a similar problem with an early (original) vacuum wiper. Sent it to John Holland...

Re: Coupe body wood questions

My 1930 Coupe also has a steel roof panel that has been nicely blended into the other panels so there are no seams evident. The steel roof looks factory and I like it. My car still has the wood...

Re: Remove hood hinge pins?????

I have seen older rods that are solid and a couple that were hollow. For solid rods you can use a nail set and a little hammer to start the rod out. Then use your drill chuck to remove the...

Re: Wrap the steering wheel with rope?

If you really want to wrap your steering wheel with cord, the first step is to locate a cord in the texture and color that you like. Each section of the wheel between spokes would be handled as a...

1930 Front Bumpe on Rear

Just wondering if anyone has installed a 1930-31 front bumper on the rear of their Model A. How did it work out? Involved or simple?

Re: Pics for your review/ comment.

I would try just polishing the crank journal with some extra fine emory cloth and oil. Then mike the journal diameter and consider bearing inserts rather than rebabbit. They used babbitt only...

Re: Stud removal; broken stud process Q.

It appears to me that the first question is: the stud in question, it is a PRESS IN stud or a SCREW IN stud? The methods presented should work with pressed in studs but screw in ones are a different...

Re: How do I remove trunk handle lock cylinder?

I would like to know the answer to this question also. I guess no one knows since no replies. Somehow the cylinder must come out since somehow it was put in originally. If no one replies, perhaps...

Re: Question About 1930-31 Running Board Trim

If by rubber you mean the rubber matting on the running boards, you will need to remove the running boards from the car and then remove the four pieces of metal (zinc) trim. Then you remove the...
