Re: Time lapse Model A engine build

I am going to add something that many do not understand about this process. When most crankshaft grinders resize a crankshaft, we are using a process call plunge grinding. Unlike a cylindrical...

Re: #! Vicki wood sill replacement

Can I just make a piece for the front section from about the middle of door to front?

Sure, that can be done and it can be glued or tenoned in with a domino or peg.

Re: Time lapse Model A engine build

Often times in specialty topics such as this, jealousy and personal agendas tend to overshadow facts. Dissention is often the results.

While I have not reviewed the video in awhile, as I recall,...

Re: Model A hot water heater installation

I am kinda playing with the same issue with a customer's car now. Does anyone have any original literature showing a Haydees or Southwind heater installed on a Model-A? I am struggling to believe...

Re: Time lapse Model A engine build

Yes. The crankshaft was the original burnisher. Even on a rebuild where the crankshaft has been resized, it is an advantage to use the crankshaft to burnish.

Re: lug nut removal

In a nutshell, you need to purchase a swage cutter to begin with. I know some people will suggest using a hole saw instead however I do not have any experience using that and I could see where that...

Re: Time lapse Model A engine build

I have participated on Fordbarn for better than 20 years or so, and this has always been a topic of discussion. Originally when Ford authorized shops did the rebuild, they used a large burnishing...

Re: Paint recommendations

You also make an interesting observation. Nitrocellulose Lacquer paints were still in their infancy in 1930, and the Pigment technologies were everychanging, ...however what most people do not...

Re: Paint recommendations

Ed, that is an interesting comment in red. I am unsure what to say in this because I have collected a couple of different paint books over the years that are slightly different from each other. ...

Re: vintique stone guard

Yes, as Mark said, it is the emblem hole that is the difference between a 1930 and the 1931 shell. They will interchange physically but the emblem does not align.

Yep, add me to the list too. We even do it on open cars also.

Re: 6v Alternator

Lets break this down further. Pretend you remove the "+" and the "-" labels from the battery. At this point, it really does not matter whether it is considered a + ground or - ground when you...

Re: Paint recommendations

To kinda prove my point at the expense of my buddy & friend Bob's comment above, DuPont has not been in the paint business since 2013 now. DuPont sold to Axalta 7-8 years ago ...and IMO Axalta has...

Your question could easily fill a full-day seminar. Much of what you are asking also depends on whether basecoat/clearcoat, -or single-stage 2k paints are going to be used. I am not a fan of...

Re: 29 standard top install

Do you have the top kit and the instructions from whomever manufactured your top? My advice is to study those first, ...then ask any specific questions. There is too much to say by typing it here. ...

The two or three things to be aware of about this conversion is;

One of the 4 structural crossmembers of the frame is severely compromised to make this modification. Granted, this crossmember can...

Re: 6v Alternator

Ground side and Minus side can be two totally different items.

In a nutshell, interrupting the ground circuit to the battery does nothing if the circuit is re-connected by a battery that rubs...

Re: 1931 Standard Roadster top

Just as an update, Fred (the guy Don referenced from Missouri) called me again today to say he actually found a set of top irons and is going to pick them this weekend.

Re: Dying your door panels etc ?

This bodystyle originally had Wool cloth panels with cotton batting between the cloth and the panel board. Is this what you have now -or is yours a vinyl (Naugahyde) material?

I think for us to properly answer your question, it would be best to know what bodystyle you are referring to. Many open bodies (Roadster, Phaeton, etc.) originally used a dyed panelboard, so using...

Re: 1931 Standard Roadster top

The irony in this is, -think about how many 40B Standard cars had the top irons removed and likely thrown away during the 50s - 70s when DeLuxe irons were installed by restorers. Back then, no one...
