Re: '35 backing plate bolts

Yesterday I disassembled the other side in two hours. The first side took two days. I only needed the tool for one bolt and only had to heat two. I was surprised to find this fibrous hair like...

Re: '35 backing plate bolts

There has been some interest in this tool so I have made a sketch of it. I scribed a 13/16" circle and a 5/8" square for the hole. Then I drilled holes in the four corners and then the center. Then...

Re: '35 backing plate bolts

I don't think so. While it is a simple thing to make it took me 5 hours with a hacksaw, files and a drill. A well equipped machine shop might be able to make them cheaper that I could. I could...

Re: '35 backing plate bolts

Thanks for all the kind responses. I tried the vise grips, bent wrench and several wedges with no success. Finally I made this plate to fit the head. It required a spacer to hold it against the bolt...

'35 backing plate bolts

Has anyone found a good way to remove these bolts. The head is a bit bigger than 11/16 and difficult to get any kind of wrench inside the grease baffle. It wants to turn with the nut and I can't get...

Re: A little help with engine identification (not a Ford)

It looks more like an earlier engine and radiator to me. Maybe 1916-1918. Yes, Studebaker. I think the hood might be off of something else and earlier.
Hope you find out more.

Re: Merry Christm"A"s

I was 14 years old and my big brother took me to see this Model A at his fraternity house. I was mesmerized and took a couple pictures of it. 59 years later I painted this for our Christmas card.

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

My gear shift lever spring scummed to age and moisture. I'm sure I could buy a replacement or some spring that would work. Not wanting to leave the shop I thought I would see what I could devise. It...

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

I wanted to clean up a spare generator for the '35. It was reluctant to come apart. After soaking it with penetrating oil and then soaking it in water it was still stuck. I thought maybe a gentle...

Re: Painted My First Car (well, parts of one!)

It looks like you got the idea alright. It gets easier each time. (and more expensive).

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

Well I rebuilt a later carburetor and tested it and the rebuilt starter and switch. All worked fine. I also found out the oil pump works well as I had put the oil filter gasket in crooked dumped a...

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

Thanks. As for beaters, this is and will remain one. I had visions of making it as nice as Don's but that won't happen. The panel was rolled in the 40s. The frame was badly bent so I will mount it on...

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

As for the ugly green thing, I put a battery in it and tested the new switch. Not only does it work but after pouring a little gas down the throats the engine fired. I guess you all know that thrill....

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

While I'm at it I have questions about three holes in the intake manifold. I'm guessing the threaded one might be for a vacuum wiper. The other two don't seem to go to threads. Are these for manifold...
