Re: Nice 1930-31 19" Wheel

To give you an idea, the shipping from OH to Florida was approximately $51. Naturally, if you are closer, can pick up the wheel personally or have a friend that can pick it up and deliver it, that...

Re: Nice 1930-31 19" Wheel

Buyer declined, the wheel is still for sale. Shipping was too much due to distance.

Nice 1930-31 19" Wheel

This is a really nice 1930-31 19" wheel, Apple Green in color. I see no bent spokes, nor dented edges, plus it rings when you tap it with a metal object, so I believe it has no cracks. I put a...

Lube Unit

Anyone ever make up a lube unit (pump, reservoir, filter) to take engine oil from a Model A crankcase for the purpose of reusing the oil after breaking in an engine? Seems wasteful to me to throw...

Re: Counterbalanced Crank

Thanks Bob. I am exploring a way that, if I did not own the car, I could determine if the engine was rebuilt with a counterbalanced crankshaft.

Counterbalanced Crank

Re: O/T Explain water bucket mouse trap

I can vouch for the bucket/roller design. I quit counting after trapping over 20 mice in less than a year in the house. Once we had them cleaned out of the area, we have had very few. Then I had...
