Re: 1925 Roadster Pickup Questions

Larry, I have purchased my top and seat upholstery, can you show me the embossed locations so I can check and see if it is correct, and also the modified front top socket? Thanks.

Re: steering gear

You mention that it takes 1-1/2 inches of steering wheel movement before the wheels turn. Make sure you are just checking slop and not winding up and loading the stee...

In addition to what Jeff said. The only thing that you will need to pay attention to here is the water level. They will continue to loose water after they find their sweet spot. I run my race car ( Model A engine) without a water pump and even it does ok if I keep an eye on the water level. One thin...

Re: Holly Hot plate

The holly vaporizer carb is built very much like the claimed 50 mpg carb. Can anyone provide any mpg data on this carb compared to other t carbs. My holly nh probably gets 18 mpg, but that is only a guess. Thanks for any input.

I had noticed on my race car that the tire may have looked a little low when I left for breakfast. It is a 26-27 21'' on steel spoke rim. When I arrived at the cafe, I not...
