Re: Replacement Running Board Bolt Bracket

You might try looking on “for sale” or posting on “wanted”. I bought 4 reproduction ones about a year ago. They fit perfectly

Re: model a 21" wheels

Cracked wheels and old tires. Sell or donate to a local car museum or club. Antique shops may be interested

Re: How Many 2020 Miles Did You Drive

2700 miles this year. Started driving it at the end of June, when the restoration was completed.

Re: Remove window trim?

I don’t know about a Town Sedan, but my ‘29 Tudor had 2 screws under the upholstery (yellow circle). Other than that, it kind of stubbornly snaps in place. As Mike said in post #2, it may need...

Re: A-18478-s manifold heater

I had about a 1 inch gap between the heater and the firewall valve. I put in a piece of aviation SCAT tubing. We took it for a test run and was really happy with the results.

Re: A-18478-s manifold heater

Thanks Old 31. I made a new rod that “hooks” to the manifold, it worked out really well. And bdtutton, you’re right, it smelled pretty bad for a few minutes. Thanks guys.
Merry Christmas

Re: A-18478-s manifold heater

I too am installing the A-18478-S heater. My question is: should the bracket that installs on the manifold stud go between the nut and the thick washer or between the thick washer and the manifold?

Re: Most Difficult Restoration Tasks

For me it’s a toss up between making all new wood for my ‘29 Tudor or doing the body work, but it was all fun and came out very well.

Re: Night ride

Tinting the rear window, that’s a really good idea.

Re: Night ride

Hammer, the drive was really fun when there wasn’t other traffic around. Next time, I’ll pick the back roads, not highways.

Night ride

I took my ‘29 Tudor for a drive after dark last night for the (my) first time. I was amazed at all of the other vehicle’s headlight reflections on most of the windows, windshield and inside rear...

Re: lug nut removal

“According to Google”.

The lug that shows up in lug nut or lug wrench doesn't seem to be directly connected. Instead, it comes from a word that meant a projecting part. Originally, it came from...

I’ve used Dupli-Color vinyl and fabric coating on an interior project (not Model A) a few years ago, I was really happy with the results

Re: Drain valve question

That’s a really good idea. There probably is room, but I’d hate to drill a hole through the tank of my brand new radiator. You’ve got me thinking though.

Re: Drain valve question

Posts # 8 and 9 might on to something, thanks guys. I know everyone says, “let it seek it’s own level”. I agree with that, but I want to know where that is.

Re: Drain valve question

All good points:
It isn’t pressurized
Once the level goes below the baffle, I don’t know where it is
I saw the Snyder product, seems a bit pricy
I’ll leave the drain valve in place
It’s an...
