For what it is worth, I used the board method to get them close, then used the skid test for final adjustment. Worked real well for me.

Re: JR Bullock

JR is a wonderful guy and does GREAT work. I put my carb on and have NOT touched it at all and my car purrs like a kitten! We are sooooo fortunate to have him.

Re: I guess I am a Model A person

I paid too much for mine as well. But I wouldn't part with it for 5 times what I paid! I drive it to the grocery store every day and EVERYONE waves at me as I putt down the street. Enjoy it!!!!!!!!

Preferred way to get to pressure plate

I am getting a weird noise occasionally going through the shift pattern as I double clutch. It makes a sound like you hear when when a tight spring unwinds. Doesn't do it every shift but as time...

Re: 28, 29 vs 30,31 What do you like any why?

29 is my favorite - probably because my barn find is a 29 Roadster. The 29 seems to have some improvements over the 28's but still are very similar. They ALL are great but I still like the earlier...

Re: Registration process in North Carolina

Ronn has the RIGHT idea. If it ain't broke ---- DON'T fix it. I have my car registered and insured in WV with an original 1929 plate. Drive it all around town here in FL with no problems.
