Re: Beautiful Lincoln in Spain

Absolutely beautiful!! Would like to know the history of it. Shows 44K mileage. That is a really neat radio also. The car almost looks like it has never been restored, just preserved carefully.

Re: Flathead engine assessment

Re: No Shipping

I shipped some parts, two pkgs thru USPS to France last week and both have arrived in France as of this morning. That is faster than I can get something that is whipped from the west coast to here.

Re: Magneto question

Re: Help with Heater wiring switch to power

Re: Magneto question

Be very careful not to induce dc voltage to your mag. If unsure, I would disconnect the mag ware from the hogshead. The t will run fine on 12v. Value depends on completeness, originality,...

Re: Phaeton top rest question

The rest itself is a threaded on one end rod. It has a saddle with a set screw that clamps to the rod. Both are available from the vendors and you could make the rods.

Re: Ignition Distributor Upgrade

If you have up and down motion in the camshaft, that is not good. The cam runs in babbit bearings and should not have any noticeable up and down play.

Re: install of worm gear on steering shaft

I use a axle knocker screwed on the steering wheel end and a hammer. Just like putting a head on a hammer. Does take heavy gloves, hold the shaft off the ground when tapping.

under tank gas valve leaking

New valve, 29-early 31 style. Leaking thru to the carb. when shut off. Suggestions? Is there a spring in there to make the valve seal, it seems to turn very easy.

Re: Tube question on frame.

Columbia two speed rear end vacuum lines. If you are not going to use them, I would be interested in them and the brackets.

Re: New Member, 34 Pickup

Looks like a great start with the hard to find stuff all there. Get a dash wiring harness and light wire harness and you will be in business. I did my 34 PU from the frame up several years ago.

Re: What is this radio out of?

It could be a Philco made for something else. Does the box have mounting ears on it like a Ford radio?

Re: Which Shaft is Broken

You do not have to pull the rear end to replace a axle, just the ring gear side housing.

Re: Theft Prevention Ideas??

The battery cut off switch is a good way to go and a good thing to have for safety. I put them out of sight on the floor.

Re: Building a late 32 driveshaft

You do not need a center bearing on a 32. Reason they are on later models is the length of the TT. No machine work is required to use a adapter other than shortning the later solid DS.
