Re: F100 steering box for 30` Model A

I bought my 56 f100 column at a salvage yard for $150. I used the pitman arm and drag link. Went to NPD and bought a seal, gasket and 2 brass bushings $15.00. Put it in my 29 AA, much easier to steer.

Re: Ford model A window regulators

When I restored my 29 AA, I sandblasted the regulators and studied them, and decided they were not intended to roll, by not rolling they may do a better job of not letting the window drop down.
