Re: 47 Ford Headlights

Ok. While looking at the switch, I noticed one of the bullet connections looked slightly pulled out of boot. Pushed in tightly and headlights now work. Ford 46 you were correct! My only question is...

56 Thunderbird Speedometer

Getting ready to take a look at an issue with a 56 Tbird speedo. Apparently, it is very noisy and jumps around. I was told they tried replacing the cable but that did not fix the problem. If...

Starter Switch?

Ok, so I did a search and found threads about starter issues. Seems like my starter switch is bad. Starter sometimes remains spinning after car starts. Also, starter sometimes keeps cranking even if...

Re: New Radiator

My point was that I don't want to pay $400 to have it cleaned if I can get a new one for $600. Am I crazy?

Re: New Radiator

Not looking to break the bank on an $800 unit. Brattons has a Brassworks HD 10fins/inch for $595. Seems pretty reasonable.

New Radiator

Seems I need a new radiator for my 31. Was thinking of bringing it to a shop to have it properly "cleaned" but am being told I may only save a couple hundred bucks in doing so. I will have to search...

Radiator Overflow/Rust

Ok, I have read some of the threads on cleaning the radiator. Everything from vinegar, simple green, Dawn, TSP etc. Some of those don't make sense to me. The car is a 31 Roadster. The car is in great...

Re: My Trickle charger blinks red?

My trickle chargers do the same thing if the battery is very low. I then hook up my regular charger for a short time. Then hook up the trickle charger and it is solid red as it should be meaning it...

Re: Roadster pickup curtain storage question.

Do all the roadsters have these pans? Is there access to them without removing the seat???

Re: 31 Roadster

Actually, I would think anyone who has size 14 shoes would not even be able to get in the car. I know that the seat on the tudor can me modified nicely but not much can be done with the roadster. I...

Re: 29 model a Sedan

As stated above, the Tudor is probably a good choice because there is plenty of room to move the seat. Without moving the seat, I doubt that you will be able to drive it all. I am 6'3" 175 lbs and I...

Re: 31 Roadster

That Duotrol looks like it is both the choke and starter. Apparently this was installed just so you didn't have to use the button. The top is ok but dirty in the corners etc. Lots of time to clean...

Re: License Plates

I did see some on EBay. Would consider a restored pair if they are perfect. I did also post in the Wanted section.
