  1. 30 Ford, converted to hydraulic brakes...worked fine when I put it up on blocks for the winter...brake pedal went to the floor & it didn't stop... checked & topped off the reservoir (it was down 3/4)... still nothing...pedal goes to the floor:-(  any ideas?

    in the past, with other vehicles, topping off took care of it in most cases braking was restored, although I sometimes have had to bleed air. but never no brakes

  2. t to put a voltage reducer on my '30 which was converted to 12 v.   This will be a 12 to 6v for the Sparton horn.  I took the cover off, & there's  ; no wiring leads... where does the original Sparton wiring hook up inside?

  3. working on my Model A: I have a '31 SW Standard Sedan (Murray 160A) and I'm trying to find someone who has a proper restoration who might share some pictures of the paint job (I want to do Chicle & Copra) but how about the top molding & how do you do the hood & stripe, and particularly the interior. My references assure me that the interior window molding is maroon (what maroon?), and I find conflicts in how the dash is done (some say wood-grain upper, others say maroon), what the window moldings are supposed to be (mine are plain, not fancy like Mac's ad), etc, etc. 

    Thanks in advance   ttallaniii@gmail.com      

  4. My '31 Chrysler CM6 battery is under a floorboard on the driver side.  The floormat material is screwed down.

    The owner's manual doesn't describe getting the battery out.  Mine has lost it's charge... what's the best way to recharge the battery (6v, pos. grnd)??


  5. Pulled the head off the "A" today, and when cleaning it up found a small crack in the water jacket near the center of the head. Is this likely to pose any kind of problem in the future.  I doesn't go beyond the picture, and doesn't affect the cylinder area.

  6. More stuff to ID: the 1st rotor here is long (approx 4") and strange looking. 2nd rotor is much smaller, and probably so generic nobody will venture a guess. Also an old wood body bracket 4" base, 5 1/2" height (was in a box left over from a 20's Fisher body construct).   More to come.

    thanks in advance
