Re: More kudos for Randy Gross' brake drums

Re: Engine stumbles on acceleration

Only any fuel filter between the sediment bowl and carb, not the pencil filter inside the gas tank or the round filter screen inside the sediment bowl. See that the sediment bowl screen is clean....

Re: Clutch replacement, 1932 Coupe

So, are you all saying because of the later spindles on this '32 Coupe, this spacer ring is not needed in our case with the present wheels?

Re: Clutch replacement, 1932 Coupe

Are these adapter rings available from vendors, should they be missing from this car? Is "adapter ring" even the correct terminology for this part? Would it be a Dennis Carpenter item?

Re: Clutch replacement, 1932 Coupe

Well, it looks as if I will be advertising for these rods and brackets. Judging by past classified ads, they don't last long before being purchased. A ton of them must have been thrown away over the...

Ah, ha! Thank you, "tubman". Although I did find photos of the rods on the Internet, I couldn't find any photos or drawings showing how they are mounted. I get the impression from reading past...

Re: Clutch replacement, 1932 Coupe

I found a couple pictures on the Internet of the 1932 clutch anti-chatter rods. The spacing for the two mounting holes seems to match those loose bolts on the back of the crossmember of my friend's...

Clutch replacement, 1932 Coupe

I searched through the archives here to find an answer to my 1932 clutch questions, but nothing was a direct help. Lots of horror stories that are scaring me, though! As some readers here may recall,...
