Re: Snyder 5.5 head

So just curious, if Snyder approved the change, can the pattern(s) be changed, or will new patterns need to be made?

Re: Car cover question

What most people don’t realize is that California Car Cover, their covers are made by Covercraft. I have bought numerous covers in the past from California CC and they have Covercraft tags on them.

1. How does the valve chamber get adequate lubrication to the valve stems and top of the lifters?

Re: Tudor front seat questions

For cups and front seat hinge, read page 438 of the service bulletins. I didn’t look for the bar type, but I think they ran out in early 28.

Just so you know, the vendors, not all of them, can supply a 2 wire harness for single bulb with or without cowl lights. The cowl light wire exits separately from the 2 wires going to the headlights....

Re: 1929 A headlights

I think it might be the other way around in your case if what you currently have, 2 wire sockets 1/2Ē, and your harness is 3 wire. If you have an early 29, they should be single bulb reflector 2...

At the end of that triangle piece in your photo should have a right angle tab with a hole for a wood screw. This is a very weak area on 28-29. 1930 was completely different up there. They had an...
