Re: Ar driveshafts

Re: Snyder's Exhaust Manifold

Re: upgrade to 1932 brakes?

I would rather have 11” brakes with new cast drums, then 12” brakes with old worn out cast drums.

Re: Radius rod ball kit

Never use the rubber ball in the cast iron housings. The ball allows too much movement, deteriorates with time, and the cast iron caps often break when you hit a bump. Use the steel Ford style caps...

Re: Model A Auto Transmission

I installed a Chrysler 904 automatic in a 1931 coupe 20 years ago, and it ran and drove wonderfully even with 3.54 gears, so to those that think it takes 35hp to run an automatic transmission, you...

Re: slide lock questions

It locks when slid toward the back of the door. Shine a flashlight in there and see what is holding it up. You may need to remove the handle and latch as the sliding part in the latch may be frozen...

Re: Windshields

To answer your question, if you change the little slide arm brackets to the 1930-1931 style brackets and get a 1930-1931 hinge, it will work just fine.

Re: Ruckstell power head

I had an NOS one I installed on a car about 15 years ago. My memory is that it was not very high compression. Still on the car and he drives it about 5000 miles a year. That is all I remember.

Re: Cast iron brake drums

A company called Plasmeter started making them in 1982. Snyder’s bought that from them in the 1990s. Currently three companies making them, two in China and one in the USA.

Re: What was Henry thinking ?

You install the 4 corner pieces to hold the glass in the frame, all on the workbench. Then you only have 8 screws to install on the cab.

Re: Changing of the Guard

Re: Water vs Antifreeze

As an engine builder, all I can say is running water ruins a lot of engines. Rust, rust, rust, cracks, cracks, cracks. I have scrapped just in the last 5 years over 300 Model A blocks that had rusted...

Re: The vaunted rumble seat...

If you look in the service letters, they reference that when the dealer
Did a rumble seat conversion, they return the truck lid to Ford for credit.
I doubt many cars were converted to rumbles....
