Re: FRONT model A ‘modern’ seal use.

I’ve used over 300 of them on our engines. Had a couple leak, all the rest have not. Must use a new or very smooth pulley and be sure it Is centered and held in place with Ultra black.

Re: upgrade to 1932 brakes?

I would rather have 11” brakes with new cast drums, then 12” brakes with old worn out cast drums.

Re: Radius rod ball kit

Never use the rubber ball in the cast iron housings. The ball allows too much movement, deteriorates with time, and the cast iron caps often break when you hit a bump. Use the steel Ford style caps...

To answer your question, if you change the little slide arm brackets to the 1930-1931 style brackets and get a 1930-1931 hinge, it will work just fine.

Re: Ruckstell power head

I had an NOS one I installed on a car about 15 years ago. My memory is that it was not very high compression. Still on the car and he drives it about 5000 miles a year. That is all I remember.
