Re: install the felt into universal joint the right way

Note that there are 2 types of both inner and outer U joint covers. The 6 mounting holes are spaced differently between the two.

Re: Whoops

Dennis, did you use the notched 2 screwdrivers to install the spring - see picture attached. They make the job much easier.

Actually what you circled is a the "foot" part of a 28/29 hood latch. Hood latches are normally an assembly that encompasses the foot, barrel, spring, handle and a couple small internal parts. The...

Re: Phaeton folded down top rests on the spare wheel?

Bengt,
It looks like the one on the right is for a model T. Note the T at the beginning of the PN. Looking at Snyder's catalog T-3876-B is for a 22 -27 model T. Actually they look pretty much the...

Re: Phaeton folded down top rests on the spare wheel?

I to have a LeBaron Bonney top I have had for about 10 or 12 years still in the boxes. I was worried about it being creased or not perfect, but with what Bengt said, I will probably be OK. I think...

Re: Phaeton folded down top rests on the spare wheel?

Bengt,
I think 29spcoupe's idea about tilting the top rest cradle upward at the back might be an idea to try like he said. I would guess you would need to add a tapered shim in the cradle if you...

Re: Phaeton folded down top rests on the spare wheel?

Bengt,
I have a glass that fits in the rear window of a phaeton or roadster. I don't know if it is an original or not. I mic'ed it out at .115". That is less than 1/8" - pretty thin. Looking at...

Re: Phaeton folded down top rests on the spare wheel?

Do you have the long studs that are threaded into the brackets inside the holes toward the back? There are brackets that slide onto the studs to support the top irons. That should allow the top...

Re: Steering Arm Balls

Re: Steering Arm Balls

They should be replaced if they are somewhat egg shaped. Most suppliers like Bert's and Bratton's will get them reballed. I think A&L Specialties actually does the work. I had A&L do several sets...

Re: MMO: How much is a little?

Re: Coupe rumble lid

Is your coupe a 28 or 29? The the top of horizontal part of the stiffener slides between the top of the sheetmetal panel where it is folded over and the lower part is riveted or screwed to the...

Re: Coup rumble lid

If the lower panel is a repro, they are formed incorrectly (not enough curve). If the panel is a repro, an original stiffener is needed inside the panel - don't ask me how I know this.

Re: Tail light bracket & Spare tire bracket

Ruth,
I am a stickler for originality. I know you can see the rubber pads, as they are thicker than friction tape, by a lot. Like I said, to each his own!

Re: Tail light bracket & Spare tire bracket

The pads above are aftermarket items and not originally used. I don't think they look right, but to each his own. What I do to protect the paint is use some electrical friction tape and contact...
