  • Floorboard Removal

    Because it seems I am forever removing the floorboard of my '28 Tudor, and since the webbing around the edge needed replacing, I made the purchase of the webbing kit from a vendor and since I only needed to fix the front, I had some left over and decided to make an "easy pull strap" from the excess. So, the following pictures are what I did to make this pull strap. Because this lays flat between the seats under the mat, it is virtually invisible!

      I guess Henry didn't put them on because he didn't have Phillips head screws like The Wiz.
      That would have been one more screwdriver X 5 million in the tool bag!


      Wiz- neat idea!

      Mechanical engineering 101: If you put an adjustment knob, screw, bolt, or tolerance specs on something, some people will immediately fiddle with it. If you mark it DO NOT TOUCH everyone will mess with it.

          Even though you used Phillips, it’s still important to face all the slots identical on each one

            Will it still work if you want to pull West??

                The slot heads are a pain. Glad I have Canadian built cars with Robertson screws! .

                      Yes you still need to be uniform but it is easier because you have twice as many slots you will not have to turn the screw as far. You never know when some one will lift the floor mat and look at your work.

                        Marvel vs Ampco Intake Oilers
                        by MikeK
                        There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE in operation between the Original patented Marvel INVERSE oilers and the Ampco and other simple knockoffs that feed oil DIRECTLY proportional to engine vacuum. People often confuse the two as similar in function.

                        An inverse oiler (Only Marvel oilers) feed less oil when the manifold vacuum is high (cruising, idling) and more when the vacuum is less (accelerating,

                        Need more amps out of my 31, 6 volt generator.
                        by old31
                        What can I look for or do to get more amps out of my generator?

                        I have the 3rd arm adjusted all the way down, it can go no lower. I drive with my lights on, and with low beam I can get no more than half an amp. High beam it goes negative.

It's Detroits' parade of Roadster Police Cars, hundreds & hundreds of them!----I "guess" they must have called the BIG PADDYWAGONS, when they made arrests???? They all ran "POLICE" heads & had the most modern Radio Communications Systems. Can't even IMAGINE cruising in them, in...

                        A different turn signal question
                        by Denis4x4
                        I have a Signal-Stat 900 that works just fine. My problem is that there is a “buzzer” that you can barely hear even with engine off and the indicator light doesn’t grab my attention. In other words, I’m like the old lady in Florida that drives around with the blinkers on!

                        ideas??
