Re: Steering arms

I remember years ago Al Lapore had a gauge for the fit on those. If they were too loose, he cull and wouldn’t install new balls on them. I can see where a bit of weld and test fitting would cure that

Re: 1931 Model A Roadster WIW

“no rust the gentleman restored and painted the body”

Better get a knowledgeable person to see what’s under the paint et al
I’d pay better for untouched than what u describe.

Re: Door hinge screw removal

The above are spot on suggestions
Best not to drill. It could leave part of the screw protruding on the back side and not let the hinge come forward to remove. Only solution then is drill bigger!...

Re: how long does a sale usually take?

Never used autotrader…
Looks fairly priced. My experience at other sites is that if it doesn’t show activity in about two weeks it ain’t really good. Usually lots of tire kickers, pen pals and...

Re: Shocks

Re: Wrong Gear Oil?

Another issue is that the A tranny in not synchronized. The heavy dope helps the shifting process. I’ve not tried thinner oil but would think leaking would also be an issue.

Re: 30 tudor top wood question

It’s the Janka hardness scale. But it doesn’t tell all about suitablility.
I’ve found that ash and hard maple work best. Oak can cause acid reaction with metals when water is present.

Re: 1931 Victoria Rear Seat Arm Rests

Possibly shutoff valve seeped gas to carb. The carb slowly dripped or gas evaporated slowly from carb?
