Re: Is there a way to determine the original color?

If not mentioned yet, take off the dash panel and look behind it. I found my color of my 29 pickup there.

Re: Gas Tank Sealer

Get a good sealer from one of the good vendors. It works, done it in both of my A's and have had no problem.

You may open up the gas valve to the card. May be starved for gas.

Re: Zenith Carb Leak Puzzle

Buy another used carb on line and rebuild it. May sole the problem and give you experience in the rebuild process. Buy new parts to put in for the rebuild.

Re: 1929 front crossmember

You may want to try Bert's in Denver. They may have what you need. They have lots of used parts.

Re: Your best method for drilling out rivets?

I do the same. Use a small drill smaller than rivet to start and then expand to a bigger one but not to big. Then punch out.

Re: Water Pump Removal

It also may depend on the type of radiator you have. My radiator is a heavy duty one and the water pump nut up front if 1/8 inch from the radiator. But never had it overheat!

Re: Whistling sound when clutch is not engaged

Take the fan belt loose from generator and fan and see if it still has noise. If it doesn't change, then it is not in this area. (but don't forget to put it back on)

Re: Kewanee Green, cant find it anywhere.

Just go to a good paint store and have them match a paint to the area you want to touch up. Will cost you a fortune but it works

Re: Car Stopped Running

Guess I would vote for a battery problem like mentioned above. May be just a bad connecting cable to the battery that does not contact.

Re: Rear-end oil fill

I do the same-buy the stuff in the squeeze bottle. Or get a squeeze bottle and use it. This method works great for both the rear end and getting to the tranny hole.
