  • '29 Spare Carrier

    I can't find anything to tell me if this thing mounts directly on the apron outside as I can't believe it would mount under and through.....

    What are you asking Beauford?

    The carrier on the fenders mounts through the apron, the rear mount attaches at the frame rail and the body, but that also depends on the body style and year.

    Sorry, but I don't have your junk memorized.
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

      29 Roadster pickup side mount carrier...does the carrier mount on apron face (then bolts into frame) or under apron directly to frame and cut a big ass hole in apron for arm?

          It has a hole in the apron. There are instructions in the Service Bulletins as to how to locate the hole in the apron. Don Turley has a method to locate the place for the hole also. Not sure if it is on Jim Masons website or another one. Hopefully someone has the link handy. Rod

            One more question for the night...do you have any screws/bolts in side aprons or are they held on with body bolts and through the fenders

              There are some (2 or 3 bolts on each apron) that bolt the aprons to the frame with the welting in between. One of them bing the bolt that holds the speedometer cable clamp on. It would be nice at some point to see a few pics of a chassis with apron and fenders on and no body on that would show these bolts well. Rod

                The Greenlee punch is definitely the best way to make a hole, but when I did the two side mounts for my friend's 31 wide bed PU, I had to use a hole saw, and it worked fine. I had the frame brackets and aprons mounted, then stuck a pencil through the hole and spun it around making the largest circle possible. I then found the center of that circle and used a hole saw. It came out perfect on both sides. Remember to cut for the size of the rubber grommet.

                I think Don Turley made a slick tool to find the center of the hole, but I don't have any pictures of it.

                        When I had mine off recently and it's a 29, there was a 1/4" bolt at front and another near the rear. You also have the 2 holes for the bracket on the outside of the frame. Your apron is in the correct place if your frame bracket holes line up. I leave them loose until the fenders and running boards are attached, everything loose assembled and then tightened worked for me. My aprons had a round notch for the speedometer cable bolt.

                          Thanks you! Yes I have the notch as well and other places as well where other holes or rivets are on the inner side of rail.

                        Alittle more info for you. Factory installed spare tire brackets were rivited onto the frame and dealer installed brackets were bolted on. Not sure if this detail matters to you, but general info for you consider. Rod

                          There might be better methods but I like the KISS mode. Go under apron with a ole can of primer and shoot up carrier hole. (Make sure apron is lined up correctly first)

                          Front splash apron
                          by Mickey
                          Can someone tell me how the front splash apron attaches on a late '31 coupe? It is not the same as my late '31 pickup or it has the wrong apron on it. Then existing one is attached in the front with the front screw on the frame horn. In the rear it is held up with just two tiny rivets (one on each side) into the flange of the fender and that's all.

                          The arrows point to frame hole locations in the first picture, are there 4 machine screws that go through the hood shelf, fender, frame, and into splash apron fixed nuts ? I've been looking for pics, but to no avail, any help would be appreciated !! Thanks, Pat...

                          by Beauford
                          So in the final stretch of getting Rusty put back together. Before paint I never thought about fitting rad splash apron. (mistake) but here I am. My hood shelf and fender are not flush with horns. They stick inward a bit. They are equal amounts over the inside edge of horns so I don't believe horns are bent. Any adjustments I can make? (Repop front Fenders)

                          by old31
                          Looking for a tip or trick or tool to drill the 4 holes on the right side of the frame with the splash apron, body and running boards already on, so that I can mount the sidemount arm.

                          I have the plain fender off and was ready to install the new (original) welled fender when I realized the holes are not pre drilled. I see were Henry pre punched the location so that is a big help fro...

                          29 Tudor wiring questions
                          by fred93
                          I am in the final stages of finishing the 29 Tudor that I have been restoring for a friend and I have some questions about the routing of the main harness from the light switch to the tail lights. I know that the harness is routed along the inside frame rail on the drivers side and it is held onto the frame with metal clips but does it go over or under some of the obstacles that are in the way???...

                          Is the tire mount bracket securely fixed to the frame or is there a little movement left to facilitate mounting and removing the tire? I'm having an alignment issue with the plate. It is no where in alignment with the tray in the fender....

                          Need Chart for Rear Spare Tire Carrier
                          by Tom Wesenberg
                          Years ago I saw a chart with pictures to identify the different rear spare tire carriers. I can't find anything now.
                          About 15 years ago I bought a rear spare mount for my cousin's 1930 Fordor, but he sold the car before I got the mount to him, so now I'd like to sell it to get my $35 back, but want to be sure it's the correct application first. I'll take a picture of it later, but we still should...

                          by Beauford
                          Ok, so this is a Brookville bed with repo rear fenders. The brookville bed does not have mounting studs for rear fenders but a cleaver pass through behind a lip for a bolt. My driver side rear fits perfect. The passenger side does not line up. I lifted the body to slide apron out a touch as it needed that anyway. I measured the fronts of the aprons to the edges of the front brackets and both are the...
