Re: "A" with wooden spoke wheels....

Ray, I think this is a unwarranted 'preconceived thought' that Model-Ts are dangerous with wooden wheels. While I agree that wood can rot, most hickory spokes do not if the vehicle is garage kept...

Re: Kick panel with document storage

The DeLuxe open cars used this pocket. Ask your upholstery supplier to add that feature into a set of panels that matches your bodystyle.

Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

There is a real irony in many hobbyist's perception that often things are done to improve safety and/or reliability. When you stop to study those comments, it should quickly be a realization that...

Re: Flywheel housing mounting

Marc, some thoughts based on my experiences. The main reasons why flywheel housings crack is because the rear motor mounts have broken which allowed the engine to flex or move in the frame. IMO,...

Re: Double Nut Lifters Secrets

George, welcome to Fordbarn.

Re: 31 Roadster wood floor pattern

This is where a drum sander comes in handy. The ¾" Plywood has a nominal thickness ²³⁄₃₂" which is 0.719", and the ¹¹⁄₁₆" Plywood should have a finish size of around 0.687". That means if we remove...

Re: 31 Roadster wood floor pattern

The biggest difference is most commercially available reproduction floorboards are the incorrect thickness.

Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

I have discussed this very topic on more than just a few occasions. My general feeling is it often deals with the owner's skillset. Many restorers that do Fine-point restorations are not doing it...

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Update on Post #9

While you have the front drum off, pay close attention to the brake wedge to see if it is binding on the stud as the brake is depressed. Especially if it has the floater with the pin inside.

Re: spring perches, castle nuts, and cotter keys

Yes, look at post #3 above. Those were absolute junk. They did not fit the front radius rod correctly and as Roger said above, the holes were not drilled correctly. I think most vendors sent them...

Re: Remove sludge from bottom of gas tank

If it is only dried fuel, then anything that will dissolve something organic. Sometime using denatured alcohol or lacquer thinner can soften old residues where they can be flushed out. Gasoline...

Re: Engine upgrade

From the perspective of an engine rebuilder, it is WAY easier to install a high-compression head at a later date than it is to install larger intake valves. If your budget is tight, opt for a new...

Re: Kwik way lbm

Re: price on car

Seems like he already has it running. The motor was locked up (i.e.: stuck) but added some oil and it goes real fast now.
