Re: 1930 Front Bumpe on Rear

I’m thinking that the original full length rear bumper was 2” shorter than a front.
Doubt that little would matter if I’m correct
Surely can be schooled on this

Re: Bent spokes

Good wheels are hard to come by as I see it
Maybe it’s just in the South
90% are pitted, wobble, badly bent spikes, scarred badly from curbing, lugs wallowed and/or all of the previous

Re: hange in Evaoprust formulation?

It is biodegradable but what it’s picked up in use likely/possibly is not .
If it’s only been used for derust and not picked up grease or oil, I’d just pour it out
Not real sure about septic but...

Re: Correct seats?

The front metal frame and slides are specific to a slant
I think all the wood frames and springs are available from many vendors
Might check with Berts as the front seat metal is not reproduced

Re: Correct seats?

I read this as frames and wood. Are you speaking of fabric?

Re: Model A Shock

Not a model a for sure
Do a search on V8 for Andy Fallandes (?) for V8 info
V8s can be tough to get apart and restore

Re: Model A Shock

Several comments
Those have fine threads, is the cover stripped?
Pipe wrench not good, use a good strap wrench
if not stripped you may have to use some heat on the cover
Drain and leave plug out
