Cleaning a gas tank

A friend of mine inherited a roadster from his grandfather. He has been working on it and took a look at the gas tank. He said it appears to have a brown sediment around the fuel cap opening. Any...

Re: 1931 Traveler Wagon and Special Delivery

Someone posted pictures of a Traveler on Facebook yesterday or the day prior. I hadn’t seen one of those before, I guess there were only 10 and all destroyed according to the poster. I can dig...

Re: Do you have any pin up girls with your Model A?

Yes, I checked the whole thread. I felt old when someone questioned eye brow fenders and my Dad had owned an A with them many years ago. While I chuckled at many comments and raised an eyebrow...

Re: Model A Day 2021

My Dad and I were going to go for the swap meet to sell and to have time together in 2020, we will probably go whether indoor activities are allowed or not. Hopefully I will have my vaccines by then...

Re: Won't Start when Warmed Up

Sluggish to turn over hot?—I would check the ground cable at both ends—battery and frame connection. The frame connection is often overlooked. Similar to what bobbader said!

Re: Paint v/s Japaning

Very interesting. I hadn’t heard of this process or forgot I did, but the article was an interesting read. I would kind of like to try this.

Re: Oh oh..Where to begin..or end?!

Reading this thread reminds me of the “Valve Job” I started in 2002. I have a ‘69 Mach 1 that needed a valve job. A week after starting the project, the car was just a bare shell, not a bolt left...

Re: "A" with wooden spoke wheels....

JWM—there is an outer hub and an inner ring that are riveted together. The wheel is lug centric with it essentially riding on the shank and bevel of the lug nut. In addition to the rivets, the lug...

Re: "A" with wooden spoke wheels....

Re: "A" with wooden spoke wheels....

The old wive’s tale about driving in water—if you get a set of these wheels do yourself a favor and DO NOT drive in water. The rim is two layers of metal, water gets inside and will start to rust. ...

Re: "A" with wooden spoke wheels....

Hmm, add one more set to the known number of Motor Wheel wood wheels. At one time I had 3 sets. I’ve cut back to 1 set of 19” and 1 set of 21”.

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

I have had AAA since 1995, some years I use the heck out of it, some I never use it. But I don’t leave home without it. Some good stories:
- Bought a ‘73 Mustang that had rust in the gas tank...

Re: Most Difficult Restoration Tasks

Sometimes the hardest part is getting motivated. I have so many things to work on (besides the cars) that it is sometimes overwhelming. Once my hands are dirty I tend to be in a happy place, I just...

Re: Station Wagon Owners

Asphaltum—that’s the word I was looking for! Not paint, not stain, but black! I kept thinking a form of tar, but knew that wasn’t a good description.

Re: Station Wagon Owners

I am no expert, but my understanding is it was a black coating. Not paint, but a black coating somewhere between paint and stain. Not sure what to call it. Let’s see what the experts say!

Re: Speedo is “jumpy”

You’re welcome. I am sure life and kids have never altered anyone’s best intentions and plans. By the way, despite attempting several of the above ‘remedies’, it still jumps.
