Re: Hershey Rain Score: 1937 Ford V8-60 sedan

You'd have to change quite a bit. The radiators are different. The adapter to the front cross member would have to be removed to accept the 85 hp engine. The 60 hp transmission is small and would...

Re: V8 60 king pin lock bolts

Here is proof that not all 60 hp cars had the tube. My mid-'37 60 hp sedan has the I-beam.

Re: Saved Another One: 1928 AA

The firemen at the show with a freshly restored '25 LaFrance fire truck really liked it. I am going to build a small Richfield station at my house to house the truck and some of my petrolia. I have...

Re: Saved Another One: 1928 AA

I am going to fab up some rear fenders soon. Probably will go from running board up to just over center of tires to keep most of the mud in check.

Re: Source for 6.00x16 bias ply tires

I wouldn't trust any foreign tires on an old lawn cart much less on my valuable old cars. Go with one of the American companies that make them in the USA.

Re: Saved Another One: 1928 AA

After cleaning the cowl tank and installing a new fuel bowl I was able to run down the road and shoot some outside shots.

Re: Are all A frames the same?

Figured it out. The frame I have with no RH hole is a Feb 1930 frame. Hole was removed January 1930. Makes sense now. Thanks to Steve Plucker The Frame - Evolution of the Model A Frame
for the info.

Re: Are all A frames the same?

I was surprised that I have frames with both RH steering hole and one without. Most I have seen have steering box hole on both sides?

Re: Saved Another One: 1928 AA

No plans for fenders. I like the utilitarian look of the open springs, wrecker, wheels.

Re: 1938 Banjo Rear Temperature

I'm using 600W oil that Mac's sells. The pinion preload isn't very tight, it was actually a little loose and the pinion was moving in and out a few thousandths. I adjusted it to just a little past...

Re: How many are still on the road?

I have three complete trucks and one coupe just at my house. I also have four more cowls and frame sections from doodlebugs I saved from the junkyard.
