Re: Anyone using a horn relay

I have been using one for several years now.

It made a difference in how the horn worked. I would recommend it especially if you have a 6 volt system.

Re: Coupe Glass Replacement

You can buy pre cut glass and the other needed materials from the better parts suppliers if you do not want to involve a glass shop.

This is also a good time to service the window regulators and...

Re: Model B engine transmission and brakes on Model A

I would not split the front wishbone but use the adapter kit as Bob C recommended.

You will have a better result when finished.

My Opinion,

Re: Greetings all - I'm a new owner

Welcome to the Barn.

Good looking truck, drive it and enjoy it.

It almost looks too good to do a complete restoration on it. May be in the mean time, you will find another Model A that does...

Re: Juice brakes

You can purchase the reproduction "Lincoln" backing plates that are made to fit the Model A front spindles. Then you use the 40-48 Ford front hubs and drums. Everything will fit.

Re: Verification of Substitute Ignition Switch

This was a FORD item. I have several and one that is still in the original Ford box.

Correction,

Part of the Coupe sub rails are the same with the exception of the portion along the doors and rear quarters.

Re: Model B engine transmission and brakes on Model A

I have installed '32-34 brakes on all 4 wheels of my model A and have installed fronts only on several others.

Use the original Model A cross shaft.

The fronts are a piece of cake as there are...

Re: Roadster subframe ???

FYI,

I believe Coupe sub frames are the same.

But I agree, I do not think anyone would remove the sub frame from a good rust free body.

Re: Rex-a-co Temperature Gauge problem

If it is a Repop, I would get a new one.

Instead of a Rex-a-Co repop, I would buy a Stewart Warner, better quality and they will fit in the bracket.

If you want to do a little work, try to...

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

Terry,

I was also wondering about the oil pressure.

I bet you were glad to find the open oil passage. A modified A Pump should be perfectly capable of providing good oil pressure. I am sure...

Re: Brake Conversion? Or not.

That is what I use.

Re: 1930 Roadster gas tank removal and install

Originally, the tanks were installed in the body when the bodies were painted, therefore, the heads of the screws that hold the tank in place were also painted.

Re: Roadster Deluxe or Standard ?

If it never had cowl lights, it is a Standard.

If it had cowl lights, it MAY be a Deluxe.
