Re: Interesting dual-horn '31 radiator shell

interesting, but no Model A left the factory with 2 horns.
the 30-31 radiator shells were stainless steel, with the exception of the commercial vehicles which were plain steel, painted black.

Re: New Parts Suppliers at Oskosh

why not ask the vendor you are interested in if they will be attending that particular meet?
I doubt that 100+ vendors would answer your personal request.

Re: Part ID

these don't appear to be original factory Model A parts...perhaps some made up solution to a particular problem that occurred sometime in the last 90 years.
I don't believe they are Ford...

Re: Does Gauge of Ground Wire Matter

Re: Battery charger

I have used a Harbor Freight 6/12, charger/maintainer for years with good results. It cost $24 on sale.
It reads the current voltage and shows when it is charging, like a thermometer going up.
