Re: 1930 rear hubs

I tried two more heating cycles today and the hub did not come loose. I upgraded my gas and was able to get entire end of hub Red Hot! Still would not come loose. Sunday I am going to try one more time before cutting the hub off. My friend said I should heat everything red hot and then pour cold wa...

Re: front 2 bar bumpers for 1930 aa

I used your request for the pic from the judging standards to finally trudge through getting my scanner working again. Here is page e20 from the 94 version of the standards.
