You can buy a 2 jaw puller with non adjustable arms cheap at Harbor freight. The space between the jaws is too small to fit the rear wire wheel hubs, so you have to grind or file the jaws to fit. Works good and it's not expensive. Sorry, I don't have the HF part number, maybe someone knows it. Keith

In fact, some carry a small battery operated hand drill with this sanding disc setup with them during the race and whenever they stop, th...

I have a '27 Fordor also, but I don't know which clamps you're referring to. Are they for the windshield, one of the doors, or the rear window? A picture would help if possible.

Once you get it running and before driving it too much, since it has been sitting for 30 years, you will need new tires and probably tubes and rim liners. The old tires will be all but rotten and safety comes first. Next comes safety gl...

Re: I'm back on the road.

Hi Allan, That sounds like a real bummer as we know how much you like to wear your bibs. Any chance you could cut off a pair just above the knees and wear them like we wear shorts in warm weather? Just a thought.....
