Re: #! Vicki wood sill replacement

My 30 Town Sedan had sills that were a lamination of three pieces. This may or may not help or hinder you. You will probably need to pull the old wood straight out a 90 deg. to the frame to get it...

Re: Scrap Drives May Have Trashed Cars, But Were the Drives Necessary?

One thing that always rankled me was the "Gun drives" that they had. The Govt told gun owners they should donate their privately owned rifles, shotguns, pistols etc. to the British so their people...

Re: Scrap Drives May Have Trashed Cars, But Were the Drives Necessary?

I don't know! The old Franklin zinc (NJ Zinc Co) mine was going great guns with 3 shifts. They must've needed that zinc and the Iron and manganese they pulled out of that hole! Battle ships...

Re: Extreme front end wobble

This laughingly called "Death Wobble"! Once you've experienced it you will agree! There can be many causes, such as Wheel bearings, king pins, spring Perch bushings, control arm balls out of round,...

Re: Front wheel wobble

I think what you experienced was "Death Wobble". A loose wheel can definitely be one of the many causes of Death wobble. This is a starting point. Pull the wheel as others have said, clean out the...

Re: MHS Students Model A

I have contacted My wife's cousin about the 1930 Tudor! It is a mostly complete car with a spare engine and some other spare/extra parts. I was wrong about the price, he wanted $4000. (Thats a...

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

Two things; A)the physical survival of the cars, Namely, not so much wood in the bodies. The use of Vanadium still helped to retard rust (though not completely) damage. So the cars and their parts...

Re: Marvel Mystery Oil

It ain't a mystery any longer! Chemists have broken it down a long time ago! But it started in 1923 when the ingredients were a mystery. I'm assuming it didn't change much since then.

Re: It ran when parked ..... at the bottom of the lake

If it's GAZ AA (and I think it is) it was probably found at the bottom of lake Ladoga. The city of St Petersburg (Leningrad) was under siege and was being supplied by trucks across the ice on the...

Re: Differential rebuild, lube bearings for preload adjustments?

I'm sure Tom Endy would echo this, since he's where I got it from! The shaft of the pinion should be put in a lathe or (If you have the setup) a drill press and polished with say, an 80grit wetordry...

Re: Not a Ford , but what is it?
