Re: Throw out bearing

Got one more question, does the B-trans use the V8-style bearing hub or the longer Model A-style hub?

When used with B-engine and B-flywheel.

Throw out bearing

Does the Model A use the same TO bearing as Model B and early V8?

Been searching but can't really find a straight answer to my question.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

I'm not planning on selling the car because this is something I've been dreaming of building for a very long time, so I'll take my chances and ditch the spark rod and just keeping the hand throttle.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

Tried the "drill a dimple in the end-method" and that did the trick, lever is in.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

Yes I will be running a high compression head and centrifugal advance distributor so I will probably ditch the spark lever too.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

Yes it should be easy but thing is, for some reason I installed the column and steering box in the car before reinstalling the levers.

Guess I'll have to pull it out again so I can hold the column...

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

Guess I'll just have to keep trying then.

When I removed them I thought they ran in a tube the whole length but that sure wasn't the case.

Timing and hand throttle levers

I think I messed up when I refurbished my steering column by removing the hand control levers.

Any good ideas out there on how to get them back in?

Re: '28 Phaeton is reborn

Sadly I don't have any photos of what you're looking for.
And the car is currently at a friends shop about 70 miles away from where I live so can't run out and take some either.

Sorry that I...

Re: '28 Phaeton is reborn

Good tip.:)

I'm lucky enough to have a experienced Model A-restorer helping me put this body together and the frame is already checked and very straight.

A rough mockup with the cowl and radiator in place, looks like a car now.

Re: '28 Phaeton is reborn

Got the 1932 wheels sandblasted, then a few coats of rust preventing primer and also got started on the topcoat but ran out of paint.

And tomorrow I got some more work on the body and frame...

Re: '28 Phaeton is reborn

The darker yellow roadster seen in two of the pictures is a coachbuilt Volvo convertible from the 1950's, very unique car.

And the lighter yellow one is an Amilcar from the 1920's (so is the...

How many Model A Phaetons were made?

As the title says, anyone that has information on how many 4 door Phaetons were made between 1928 and 1931?

Curious as I recently bought a Phaeton made in may 1928.

As seen in the pictures it...
