Re: 40 Ford Drake radiator saga

Country of origin isnít the issue. China and many other countries can manufacture fantastic, high quality items. But just like in America, it is going to cost you. There isnít a new car manufacturer...

Re: Anyone in or near Santa Clarita, CA to help with Model A

Highlight your issues and troubles with the car. Are you having trouble rolling up the windows or going down the road at 45mph?

Re: Ď34 Roadster side curtain rods?

From David G's post the other day, it sounds like he still may have some in his possession that he sorted for you? If that's the case, I'd be interested in a 35-36 phaeton set.

Re: Ď34 Roadster side curtain rods?

Re: Ď34 Roadster side curtain rods?

Did you talk to Third Gen? I'm in the same boat with 35/36 phaeton curtain rods. I found a set of original side curtains I can use for patterns, but no rods yet.

Re: 1936 Phaeton - Engine cowl louvre (1) missing

Those are hood sides. The hood is comprised of four pieces, two top pieces, and two side pieces. Both are unique to left and right.

But again, you're referring to hood sides.

Re: 1936 Phaeton - Engine cowl louvre (1) missing

He's talking about the louvered side panels in the engine compartment that bolt up to the fender. I can't remember the correct term, but I think they're often referred to as inner fender panel.

Re: 1935 Phaeton question

What's the body tag number say? Should be on the passenger side firewall, facing "up".

Re: Need a high altitude '36 carburetor

I know Mark and Gary well. I’ve bought a lot of A parts from Gary, and a lot of super nice 36 parts from Mark. You and I have met many times before, usually at the now defunct San Diego swap meet. I...

Re: Need a high altitude '36 carburetor

I thought it was the one Mark Williamson had and maybe even still has. It's similar, but his was black and I believe an original paint car.

Snap On Cylinder Head Obstruction Wrench

I have three Snap On obstruction wrenches. These let you torque the cylinder head with the distributor in place. Great tool that is no longer made. $60 each, plus shipping.

Re: B Carb on an A?

I have a B carb on a B manifold. It works great. I turned the carb mounting bolts to get the carb to rotate and align to fit the A attachments.

Re: Block temp before thermostat opens

No.

You can always enlarge or drill more bypass holes in the thermostat to speed up the opening.

Awesome job! I don’t need your products as I don’t have a truck of that vintage, but I appreciate your time and effort. You are one reason why the hobby continues!
