Re: 10mpg

You may have a speedometer problem,not a fuel mileage problem.

Re: photo on new Snyder catalog

Do RHD cars have the horn on the right side? I never thought about it.One thing I did notice in the picture is that I think it has sealed beam adapter rings behind the headlight lenses.

Re: Leaking Gas Tank

Have you taken your dash panel off to verify this? I've never heard of one leaking there,when gas leaks around that tunnel I have always found it to be the gas guage leaking,just running down there.

Re: '30 under tank gas valve threads

I think you need to back up a little bit.The tank thread size is 1/4 pipe.It is not fine.The outlet to the gas line is not pipe or compression,it is flare.

Re: Missed vital step

I think you are going to find it is combustion by-product.It will be a little sticky,and maybe have a little brownish tint to it.May smell a little like creosote too.It wicks out through the gasket...

Re: 28, 29 vs 30,31 What do you like any why?

I have a nice 28 Phaeton that had a 29 2 tooth box put in it.That seems to be the only real deviation from the early features on that car.If it hadn't already been done I probably would have done it...

Re: Bench Seats for a 1930/31 closed cab pickup

Roadster seat springs are nowhere near close.I had a set of nice originals for my pickup,but I really didn't like them.They were near perfect,but you have to remember people weighed 130 pounds back...

Re: Do you have any pin up girls with your Model A?

Vince Falter has a nice section on pinups.I can find the page,but can't open it.Same thing happened about 5 years ago.He sent me a link that worked,but is no longer valid.
