Re: Pacemakers and Model A ignition systems

I have a MRI safe Medtronics pacemaker. I've been told it's safe to weld with low current but haven't tried it yet. I've had no problems being around unshielded ignition like my Model T.

Re: "28 Truck Bed Wood Sill demensions.

My apologies: I thought I had a couple of these rails but do not. When I rebuilt my bed I bought replacements for most of the parts that were rusted out from Mike's Afordable, including wood...

Re: "28 Truck Bed Wood Sill demensions.

Are we talking pickup on the car chassis, or AA truck? By sill, do you mean the wooden bearer that sits on the frame and supports the bed? I can give you that from my RPU.

Re: Speedometer Calibration

Any chance of doing a Speedo 101 class? I have one which runs 5mph slow at 40mph ( cost me 90 to find that out when I passed a camera!). I'd like to know how to fix it without sending it away.

Re: Anyone restored a E28/AR RPU?

Still no luck finding a plant code, but I measured the old bed side rails v. the new repros - 1/2" difference, and , of course the difference in shape.

Gas tank anti- squeak

With all the stuff I bought for my 28 rpu is a roll of gas tank anti- squeak. I assume this goes between the tank and the quarter panels. Does it also go across the firewall?

Re: Anyone restored a E28/AR RPU?

I only used AR in my header cos not everyone has got on board with E28. My bed is not longer, I have bought repro side panels which match my originals. The only mismatch was the bottom rail not...

Re: 32 Model Y in France

That is an early one, not as early as the one in the ad. Later cars had a longer grille with the crank hole going through rather than below it. Nice cabriolet body, don't think it's factory body.

Re: 35 cabriolet rumble lid to trunk

It is a pia to get luggage out of the rumble seat, I just climb in there and hand it out, but I don't understand why turning the lid round would help. Presumably the spare goes somewhere else, but...

Re: Bosch blue coil in a v8 ??

Pertronix told me not to swap over my 1.5ohm coil into my VW cos that needs a 3ohm and it would fry the module. So the rating matters, take Pertronix advice.

Hood hinges - tube or rod?

My local vendor stocks a set of stainless tubes for the hood hinges. For the same price I could buy solid stainless rod. Which is better?

Re: Switched Carbs: choke rod doesn't line up

Model A & Model B carbs are different and won't line up unless you use the correct manifold.
