Re: New guy to the Barn - 1929 Model A

Make sure to write down the history of the car. Revisit the person you bought it from and get all the stories about that car that he can remember.

Re: Oil Pan fit?

Re: Oil Pan fit?

My 3/8 inch drive will not come close to the bolt. I think MAG is on to something. My front cross member has been replaced. It must be a thicker cross member.

Re: What Model A part was the hardest to take apart?

My front spring perches came right out? Maybe they were just so worn that they fell out. I did have a second runner up....a head bolt snapped off.
