  1. About two years ago, I started a project to restore my 1931 Roadster with my son and grandson. It has not run for five years. Well, life got in the way and we are starting over. One of the things that I wanted to do is to remove and clean the oil pan as I suspected it could be pretty sludged up. We removed the pan and the oil pump should have dropped out per my Les Andrews Mechanics Handbook No. One. It did not. In fact, it doesn't even wiggle a little. Am I missing something? What should I do? Since it appears to be stuck, I assume that it would be bad to just
  2. Thanks, Pete. I'm making notes as I go and your the only one to mention cleaning out the gas tank and tightening up all the electrical connections. I will order the manual.
  3. Thank you. I posted there also. I tried to get as much coverage as I could.
  4. I have a few Model A repair questions. First, a little background. I restored a 1928 Model A pickup when I was about 17. My dad gave me a true junker and said that I could have it if I rebuilt it. I disassembled it (to the frame) and reassembled it. I had professionals do the chromework, woodwork, inside engine work and similar "craft" jobs, but took it apart, put it back together, and did a lot of the engine work myself. But that was almost 50 years ago and I have no confidence in my memory about quite a bit that the things that I did with ease then. I traded the pickup in on a 1931 Sport
