Re: Top Fasteners on 31 Roadster Tack Rail

Put your top on the car which should have rear curtain and snaps in place first. Then fit male snaps on the tack rail so top fits properly. Not the other way around!

Re: 2021 Fall Big Tulare Swap-O- Rama Live Video Coverage Over 400 Vendors !

Re: 28 model a roadster front window sill

On my 1931 roadster the windshield would slam back and hit my knuckles. Ouch! I got a thin narrow self adhesive rubber strip used for body side moldings which were popular 20-30 years ago. Go to a...

Re: Does Your A Start Right UP?

Every model a is different but to adjust to a faster idle upon startup, I look at accelerator and pull down the throttle arm till it just moves a bit. That keeps the guesswork out of how worn or...

Re: 1935 Ford truck radiator fan

That would be way too low. Someone has made this switch before and must know what works best. I assume an electric fan and shroud is the way to go.

Re: Rearend Leak

Maybe I just got lucky, but I hand filed the trumpets flat where they mate up to the banjo housing,and 11 years and many miles later no leaks. Whatever you do use original bolts without lock washers.
