Re: Seatbelts in a Roadster

The link worked for me. However the info seemed to be for 3 point retractable belts. I'm installing lap belts only since it's a Roadster.

Seatbelts in a Roadster

Anyone know how to install seatbelts in a 30 Roadster? Links to sites with videos would be helpful. Purchased a set from Macs that came with hardware but no installation instructions.

Smile Re: Gas tank sizes

The Roadster does have the spark arrester and the Coupe does not. I'm sure it must to have had one at some point. That is why my "dowel stick gauge" would not go down as far as it does in the Coupe....

Re: Gas tank sizes

Never thought of that. The Roadster has the spare in the wheel well so it is a little hard to look in the tank. Thanks

Re: Pressure plate adjustment

Bear with me here Patrick. I'm a newbie on the A. I've adjusted the linkage to where the clutch engages at about half way. Trans shifts fine. However the fingers are still at about 3/8 inch gap from...

Re: Shifter spring compressor

I do like that idea. I used standard black safety wire and twisted it with lineman electrician pliers. They are wide and worked well. Just be sure and put 3 wires equally spaced. The toughest part is...

Re: Over Fill Oil

Re: Shifter spring compressor

Didn't have a wooden dowel but a 2 3/4 inch by 1/2" metal conduit worked just as well

Re: Shifter spring compressor

Roger V you were spot on with the measurements of the dowel. Anything bigger than 1/2 inch would have been to big and would have made it difficult to feed the safety wire thru the spring. Anyway it...

Re: Shifter spring compressor

This method sounds promising. However it looks to me like the dowel would need to be a bit larger than 1/2 inch. Thanks for the idea Roger. And thanks everyone else for your suggestions.

Re: 600w oil

Marc the 600w that I bought I got from Macs. I wasn't sure if I could buy it locally from a auto parts store so as not to pay shipping. Every day is a new learning experience with these old cars
