Re: frame paint removal

To answer your question I would need to know the type of paint that is on it now and what you want to put on it. If it's factory paint then just scuff it up real good and go from there.

Re: Installing a 30-31 hood and radiator shell on a 28

The deuce grille is always an improvement on any vehicle. Like I said in my earlier reply you needed to change to the 30 31 front cross member as the 28 29 is higher on the radiator mounts and it shows up on your truck. Your radiator is higher than your cowl. It's a little thing and if it doesn't bo...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

Now that you replaced the front pulley and star nut were you able to turn it over without the starter installed??? I don't think you have a seized engine but you need to eliminate the minor stuff one at a time. If it doesn't turn in neutral with the starter out you have other problems.

Re: Finally acquired my '31 AA!

I just noticed that old GE refrigerator next to the newer one with a sign on it. I have one just like it and it's still working. I keep my beer in it. The blue light still works when you open the door. Can't beat R-12 for coldness.

Re: Finally acquired my '31 AA!

That may be a grain box on the back of your truck. The motor is from a car as AA's started with an AA stamped on the engine. Your serial number is stamped on the frame rail under the drivers side cowl. Also I am going to curious how Illinois accepts your title transfer. They voided out a bunch of pr...

Re: Flathead V8 Installation

Bob C is correct. The 8BA's are a real tight fit and need quite a bit of massaging to get into the A engine compartment. 8BA's are 49 thru 53. A 59A is a little shorter and is easier to install but it is still a lot of work. these are not bolt ins by any means. You are going to have to make new fron...

Re: Flathead V8 Installation

55 would be OHV not flathead just saying. That rear end is going to dictate your speed. A lot of work for very little improvement in my mind. You may want to upgrade that rear end while your at it. I have a FH V8 in my 31 Roadster with a 39 rear end. Makes a big difference. You need to give some tho...

Re: Express bed boards

Great looking survivor. I agree leave it alone. I would probably wipe it down with some kind of oil to keep the rust away.

It was spot welded on. You need to tack weld it back in.

The radiator is going to be to tall with the 28 29 front crossmember.

Re: Steering column bracket

Those clamps are available from every supplier and at every swap meet you can go to. Pretty easy fix. If it was mine I would convert to the late 31 column drop and avoid the gas tank altogether.
