Re: No holes in Pan Gasket

Re: Does anyone know this brace part number 28-29 roadster

You need A-162-A. The photos are interchanged. The brace shown as 30-31 is actually 28-29.

Re: Does anyone know this brace part number 28-29 roadster

I believe if you talk to the vendors they will ship you the one you show in your photo. I did a photo search of A-162-A and in some cases they have interchanged the photos for the two parts.

Look at Snyder’s A-162-A. Other suppliers offer the same part.

I looked at a couple photos and the online catalog may show the later style with the large access hole when you click 28-9. Berts...

Re: Howell's Sheet metal

I bought the same panel for my touring from Smith and Jones. I used them because I assumed they did more business with Howell’s than I ever would. I got the panel in a few days and was happy.

Re: Early starter bendix

The Model T spring will work with the multi disc clutch flywheel. It is wound in the same direction as the Model A spring but is a smaller diameter. There is one installed on my later ‘28 Coupe.

Re: How to Distinguish Repro from Original Instrument Panels?
