Re: Radius rod rubber ball replacement.

Same as motorcycle handle bars, dish soap lets them slide on and they are glued, won’t come off.
Maybe modern made rubber not work as good

Re: Where to buy 21 stud repro alu heads

I just want them to work.
I sand & polish, coat with clear engine paint. Look decent for a long time. Get a yellowish tint after awhile but like it even better.

Re: Rear End- Is it worth saving ?

Model A I think by wishbones. Looks like it was a kit, hardware may be repurposed somewhere. Maybe a bench top stand to use when rebuilding a banjo rear end.

Re: 1936 Ford Pickup - New Engine and transmission

Clearly the “36” needs saved so what parts are left? If so you can get a Tbucket kit for 1/4 of the value and be just as happy with it.
