Re: Relocated fuel tank

I believe you quoted the wrong comment. The comment you quoted (which was mine) makes no mention of butchering or anything being irreversible. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk I stand corrected on the miss quote, but I do care what people think of me and my truck, that is the only reason I had ...

Re: Relocated fuel tank

Good idea about the overflow tank. That's interesting about the oil. Where will it be dripping into?

Re: Relocated fuel tank

To each his own. I have one of those fake shiny paint jobs, but it is stock otherwise, and I drive it all the time. It's very reliable and fun to drive. I guess fake is in the eye of the beholder. Most AA trucks came out of the factory with un-polished body paint, but as I recall, it was an up charg...

Re: Generator

Hi Ron,

Have you tried calling Gilroy Generator? They are an old school shop and we've used them for many years for our farm equipment and Model A's. Google them for the info - hopefully they can help!

Re: 3 speed shifter

Which brings up a question that I've had for years... Do any of the aftermarket manufactures replicate these parts in the butler finish? I have never seen them for sale. If not, how are people getting high scores on their vehicles for accuracy of those parts? Is the finish something we can replicat...

Re: 1929 fabric top

Nice job, T-Crate! Makes you wonder what their secret was at the factory back in the day.

Re: ammeter

You might need to polarize the generator. Same thing happened to me on my T-30 Ferguson Tractor. Similar 6 Volt system as the Model A. Drove me nuts for years. Never charged the battery, and the ammeter kept reading backwards. I had read on-line that I might need to polarize the generator to correct...

Re: Windshield frame final paint

Hey Chris, As I understand it... the body, hood, and windshield frames went through the paint booths apart, but at the same time for color accuracy, then assembled as a unit. Is that what you mean? I'm just glad Ford had photographers walking around the assembly plants for these photos! Mark P.
