    1929 Model A Tudor

    Too damn hot to work on it. Spent the last two months going back and forth to memphis to help renovate a condo my brother bought. 5 trips, 4 in my beater F 250 at 11mpg. On the plus side he's keeping my mother there, so I'd cut off an arm to avoid having to deal with her. Not mine mind you. :D

    Has anyone had a good experience with this tool?

    I have the Eastwood tool which is nearly identical. The drums are expensive and the tool itself is very heavy. It has some good uses, but the size and weight are a handicap at times. I'd say it is a 50-50 chance you'll find it worth the costs.

    What is correct snubber arrangement 71 351-2v vert?

    that is the pinion snubber plate in the location where you have the two loose bolts. I don't think anything actually mounted there. I think all the cars had the reinforcement plate, but not sure that all cars would have pinion snubber, might be limited to manual transmission and 4V cars. Are...

    Engine hoist modification

    I've used it a lot since the conversion (and used the old ram to fix a different one lol) I really can't recommend it enough when working by yourself.

    Did I Ruin My Ram Air Hood Springs?

    I suspect the springs are fine and the hinges are the problem, The hinges get sloppy and can be rebuilt.

    2.75 to 3.50 3rd member swop issues

    That 23 tooth gear is prone to wearing out quickly, just so you aren't surprised when it fails after 10-15K miles

    1929 Model A Tudor

    Ignore the floor, it is coming back out as the body is being raised just a bit to get the floor above the transmission shift levers to create enough room for the pedals

    Has anyone attempted a rear seat delete?

    make sure and use the SEM plastic primer after a very thorough cleaning and scrubbing.  It works well if the prep is done well and it peels off if it isn't  Been through a few cans learning that lesson

    Has anyone attempted a rear seat delete?

    as to the rear interior panels . . . I've found that it is hard to repaint them, no matter how much prep you do.  Consider having them covered by an upholstery shop for a one and done solution.  Might be able to cover with car wrap even.
