Re: Top wood replacement

All rust but mostly solid. Been cleaning gas tank today. Removed it and scraped some rust loose from bottom. Vacuumed and poured in 35 1/2 nuts. I have been rolling and sloshing all day. Do it for a couple of minutes then rest while doing something else. Cleaning up pretty good. Will continue till t...

Top wood replacement

When removing my old wood I found a mastic/tar substance between the wood and metal. Is this original? Is it necessary?

Re: 29 express spare wheel mount.

Does someone have measurements of the straight horizontal run of an original up to where it starts to curve up as measured from the out side of the frame? The one I made did not go thru the hole in splash apron like it should. It was a little high as it was curving upward. I think I need to add in a...

Re: Axles too long?

Hub caps will not clear the axles -to long. The rear end was disassembled to install inner seals but axles were what came out of it. I believe I have enough room to cut 1/4 inch off nut and axle and then re-drill a hole for cotter pin.

Re: Model A engine rebuilders

I would recommend antique engine rebuilders in Skokie Illinois. Several of my club members have used them. They do a complete short block for 2300. No tax and shipping is a standard 100.00 each way. They have very good reviews and a good warranty on the rebuild. You basically get a modern engine bac...

Re: 28/29 brake hub

Took drum to my machinist and I believe it is to thin to turn. Heavily pitted and would need to turn down to .130 to clean up. Also he estimated 2-4 hours machining time with setup - 120.00 to 240.00 dollars. I told him I would look for better hub.
