Re: Grab handle

I certainly wish you were right!! It would give me less heartburn if I didn't have to drill holes. But I do need something to help the CEO to get in.

Re: Grab handle

Re: Marvel Carburetor

Same with the Marvel Schebler, soft metal. Ensure not to over tighten the screws. I only tighten the screws until the lock washer flattens, no more. I have been cutting my own gaskets also using...

Re: converting to 1970 v8 points for model a

Re: rear brake track how do you check it

Nice tool GeneBob. I enjoy seeing tools people make.

Re: Grab handle

I saw this grab handle 'somewhere' and always wanted to either find a similar one or fab one.. My CEO has a hard time getting in my Town Sedan. I think the shape of it looks sorta period correct.

Re: Reamers

Look thru Bratton's printed or online catalog. They usually list what size reamer (among other measurements in their parts description). For example front spindle bushings "Ream to .813" - .8135.
