Re: Oil Pump Drive Gear

I thought it odd that the gears, bushings, and everything else in the oil pump looked good. Maybe the pump was replaced at some point but not the drive gear. This is an extremely clean engine with...

Oil Pump Drive Gear

I am assembling a spare engine and for some reason, I never looked at the oil pump drive gear until I was ready to install it. It is horribly worn! I have never seen one this bad. The gear teeth are...

Re: 16" Wheels

Right now I really like the looks of these 16" tires/wheels on my 30 Huckster but I am definitely keeping the 19" tires and wheels in case I want to change back.



I did try the 16"...

Re: 16" Wheels

I know it is overkill for a 50-60 mph car, but since a buddy of mine has all of the equipment, I went ahead and Road Force Balanced my 16" Douglas tires and wheels. Glad I had extra wheels since one...

Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

I pretty much like all Model A stock or modified as long as they still have the Banger under the hood. Really appreciate the restored points cars but the best way to appreciate one is to just drive...

Re: 14mm Plugs

Re: 16" Wheels

Paul, I ended up buying USA made Douglas P215/70-16 and P225/70-16 from Walmart. Maybe a little wide for the wheels and 75 aspect ratio would have been better, but it looks and drives fine and the...

Re: 16" Wheels

Anyone ever use a temporary spare tire on a 1935 16" wheel in a fenderwell? I see they make 145/90-16 and 155/90-16 sizes. Put a cover on it and the wheels match what is on the road.
