Re: 1939 pickup hood latch assembly question

To clarify, is side 'A' or 'B' pointed forward with the handle in the closed position and are the "spurs" up or down?

Re: Aluminum hood question

I tied a loop of rope long enough to run under the side hinges and meet above in the middle for the hoist hook.

Re: Aluminum hood question

To do it safely (for the paint and me) by myself, I've used my engine hoist.

Re: 1939 pickup hood latch assembly question

Clem is right that the shaft isn't held firmly on axis. Two other items were a mystery to me.

The hook of the pivot lock plate (red arrow) doesn't fully engage the "handle" to the left of it in...

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

I can see that a Model A might not be made for crankcase vacuum. I don't think that engines that use pcv valves and such have paths for fresh air to enter, though.

What is the benefit of fresh air in the crankcase?

Re: Help identifying the vehicle

All good advice!

Another way to hold the oil pump up is a tool like this https://www.brattons.com/oil-pump-holder-tool.html

I made my own by drilling and tapping a brass 1/8 npt plug .

Re: Dimension Differences - 28/29 vs 30/31 Windshield Frames

Above the frame there is a rubber strip that looks like the gasket in the Brattons website. Is there a tape that you recommend? I see Home Despot has a 3M friction tape. I guess I didn't ever look...

Dimension Differences - 28/29 vs 30/31 Windshield Frames

One of the windshield swing arm pivot nuts fell out of my '31 Coupe. In looking in the Bratton's catalog for a replacement, it appears that the earlier cars had a sleeve nut and the later cars had a...

Re: Ford engines in rail vehicles

I'm confused by them equating 200 men with 6000#, that is 30# per man!

Re: Ford engines in rail vehicles

OK, but 260 men is at least 20 tons. I was comparing the grades of urban lines to mountain grades that a much lighter Model A can deal with.
