      Can't decide on bins or open storage. how do you arrange the parts? by number and order in the parts book for me. I thought about by order as in the standards.

            Piles are the best if you have the floor space.

          I buy the Costco containers when they go on sale, black with yellow lids and then the smaller ones that fit inside of the big containers. Each container gets a number as well the small ones. I then put in notes on my phone what each container has, I can click on search by either part number or description and it will show where the part is. Same goes if I search for a container it will show contents in the container. Everything stays clean out of the dust.

          WELL, if I can't SEE it, I don't WURRY about it---A Friend even has 2, one Gallon cans, labeled "DIRTY ACETONE" & "CLEAN ACETONE":rolling----IF I were ORGANIZED, I'd think I turned in to the WRONG house.
          OH, we need a "BEATIN' THE HORSE" Emoji. It would save PAGES & PAGES of dribble.

              Looks like you are making good progress on organzing. While I try to put like assembly parts together at times while moving all of my parts one bin flows into the next to make the best use of space. Still trying to figure out what to do with the pile (20+ cores) of used pressure plates. Looking on ebay there is really no market for them. Hate to scrap them, but no room for them at this time. Hoping things work out to have the parts storage building built before the clock strikes 12 on getting everything off of the farm. Rod

                Would a place like Fort Wayne Clutch have any use for them?

                I am not sure yet. I need to sort out the 9 3/4" AA pressure plates and scrap some others that are too far gone. Will get a count and contact them after that. I know Omaha Brake and Clutch is not interested in them. Also will set back the nonsprung center AA disks as I have seen those sell. Rod

                Rowdy, I sent my flywheel and clutch to AER to be lightened. They exchange the clutch I'm sure have a rebuilder, maybe they can tell you to sell them to.

                Thanks for the suggestion Dennis. Will persue all reasonalble avenues. If temps are lower next Friday will finish cleaning out the shed with that stuff in it. Since that part of the farm is already sold to a neighbor it will be the first to be completely empty. Rod

              Strong boxes like parts come in. Five gallon plastic buckets work well. Smaller kitty litter buckets for the smaller parts. Looking for a part is just part of the fun.

                  Thanks guys. Shipped off my pressure plate, clutch disk and u-joint cores to Fort Wayne Clutch yesterday. Will get some rebuilt parts back in a few weeks. Not the cash deal I was hoping for, but enough for our cars and a few extras. Best deal I could make with the least hassle. Rod

                    Should have 3 rebuilt pressure plates, one clutch disk and one u-joint rebuilt and ready to sell. Keeping 3 pressure plates, 3 clutch disks and 2 u-joints. Sent them 27 pressure plate cores, 13 clutch disk cores and 12 u-joint cores. Rod

                      by KB9JLO
                      I bought the "Model A Standard Hardware Manual" - and it does indeed have lots and lots of hardware (bolts, screws, nuts, fasteners...) listed in it. But I thought it might have more pictures of where those fasteners were exactly or what they were. I don't know what each and every part is supposed to be called. It does a good job of listing the hardware but if you don't exactly know what/where...

                      October 28 parts list
                      by Jim Mason
                      Some time ago I created a MS acess database made up of standard parts book, Oct 28 parts list, body parts list, trim and hardware referring to the late 28 Tudor. I intended to publish it. I don't think I'll ever get it done.
                      I sent a copy of the parts list sorted by finish report to Rod. I posted a copy of that report over on the fine point side.

                      small parts storage
                      by bgarrett
                      What do you guys use for small parts storage? I have bolts and small parts in milk crates and 5 gallon buckets but they are plastic. The plastic deteriorates, and splits. Even when a 5 gallon bucket is half full, its too heavy to move.

                      Reproduction parts
                      by Poor Boy
                      Good evening. I have been spending quite a bit of time working on my A over the winter and I think that I might have an observation. I have a couple of truckloads of parts, original and early reproduction, that I bought from estates. I have also bought new reproduction parts to fill the gaps in what I needed. It appears to me like there is a dramatic improvement in the quality of the newer parts...
