Re: Four Post Lift Recommendations….

My main recommendation is the four post lift should have collars around the posts at the end of the crossbars (not inside the posts). If the lift cants for any reason, it could collapse. This is...

Re: Are most repro parts too small?

It appears that your roadster is a Deluxe. Those only came from the factory with an outside mirror on the post. So, whatever was put on the inside could be anybody's guess. Post #11 is spot-on. BTW,...

Re: Enclosed trailer

Years ago I bought a 16' enclosed trailer. My Model A fit but there was no extra room. I sold that one and bought a R & R all aluminum 22 foot enclosed trailer. I made sure the door height was okay...

Re: The color of my truck has a name

When they scan, it compares that color to the nearest color in their library. So, yours picked up a BMW color as the nearest. One time I needed Washington Blue for a roadster I was restoring. The...

Re: disturber drive shat

It can be disturber-ing but my intermediate distributor shaft has had surface rust on some of my Model A's. I conclude that it doesn't get oiled other than some oil mist. So, I grease it when...

Y-Block Spark Plug Wire Grommets

Is it difficult to get the wires through the grommet holes? Seems I've read about difficulties. Any tricks or just slides through easily?

Re: looking for a ride

Did you inquire at Fastenal? Usually good rates for that type of shipment. Finding a private individual going between two specific places may be like winning the lottery. lol

Re: Removing 1930 front fenders

If you're referencing my post, your picture is not showing a 2x4 under the front body cross member. I place a floor jack below that "body" cross member, measure vertically from the jack's saddle to...

Re: Removing 1930 front fenders

I use a floor jack and a cut-to-size 2x4. I position it under the first body cross member (near front of seat). To prevent strain I loosen most of the forward body bolts.

Re: Coupe book??

Two coupe books BA-9 & BA-10 are listed on Snyder's website so likely most large A vendors handle them. Your ultimate question was do they show body/upholstery detail before you buy either?...

Re: Removing 1930 front fenders

While you need to jack up the body slightly, you should remove the steering column bracket to the gas tank. Doesn't take much to get a gasoline leak.

Re: Model A News Has Shipped

Got my issue yesterday and realize it's been sent from the printer. So, as someone else posted, I live 35 miles from the home office which has nothing to do with the sent point.

Re: 68C and A400

Since it's been awhile, I guess I have to go out in the 30 degrees to see what I have or don't have. How about taking pics with light behind the camera as the object is dark and shadowed.

Re: Tire Ooze Cleaner

I had a brownish-goldish hew on my Firestones on the A in my avatar after either sitting for awhile or sun exposure. I use STP's Son of a Gun tire cleaner which works very well.

Re: Drag Link Spring Compression?

I agree with Tim on this. Having bought kits over the years I ran into some springs being longer than others. I've also heard of the C clamp technique. My concern was if I could get the longer spring...

Re: Shifter spring compressor

I've done Tom's method or somewhat like it but with a short dowel rod inside. I'm guessing but think it may have been 1/2" diameter and 2 3/4" long. This way you can rotate the spring safely with the...
