Re: how to eliminate free play of the rear axle

If the hubs are tight on the axle shafts, then shims ARE NOT THE FIX! The fix would be to replace the whole rear end with a better one or pull and rebuild. That is too much in and out play.

Re: Drum incorrectly mounted to hub

Before the drum even gets mounted, the flange should be checked for flatness. Often in the process of removing the old drums/studs or hard use they can get bent or bowed.

Re: 1936 ford flathead overheating

Next would be to post your question on the Early V8 forum. This section is for questions about the site, not car questions. Few read and even fewer respond.

Re: Radius ball cap nuts...

Make sure you are using the correct nuts, they are much larger than the standard 7/16 castle or slotted hex nut.

Re: For those who don't have a four post lift......

LOL, like that idea. I dropped one of the wing nuts for the battery hold down in the grass under my 48 F2 Sunday. Laying on the ground, I could not see it, so I dropped a shinny object (wrench) next...

Re: curved-handle adjustable wrenches (not 'A')

Re: 1927 dashboard

The ignition switch is in the center of the light switch. The light switch is the part with the handle.

Now for the kicker, we can't see your dash so don't know what else may have been added. I...

Re: curved-handle adjustable wrenches (not 'A')

Maybe they did have a place on old farm equipment where straight arm would not fit. If you look at some of the factory supplied tools for the old equipment, you might see wrenches that had the same...

Re: Estate Sales/auction

Re: Ford Model T Coupe

Except for the red hood/bonnet, that looks a lot like the one I brought home back in the early part of this century! (around 2008) Had to hold the cab together with ropes to bring it home.

Jack the car up and use jack stands. Forget the creeper, hate those things, cardboard or piece of carpet. Not a fan of ramps, never seem to get the tires in the right spot. Not on far enough or on...

Re: Do you take your Model A to the local self serve car wash?

Many many years ago, took my 1962 VW Microbus (Komby) through the brush type car wash. The top roller/brush got caught on the windshield over hang (which would be like the sun visor on an A)! Was not...

Re: best guesstimate needed on used part-

Been a vulture standing or was close to the trash bin! Sold most of what others considered trash, so it was found money. :cool:


Biggest drawback now days, cost of shipping.

Re: Cheap Reproduction Head?

April 12, 1940! :) Just because the selling price was maybe low, does not mean it was cheaply made. Pre WW2 so could have been a good grade of iron used.
