  • eaton gas cap

    How do you take an original Eaton stainless gas cap apart for restoration. I have the 30/31 style with the stainless cap pressed on the inner cadium part. It seems like I have seen an article somewhere but I can't find it.

          29 Repro gas cap question
          by fred93
          The original gas cap on the 29 Tudor that I am restoring would not tighten down. The threads looked okay but when I tried to tighten it down it just kept turning. So I bought a repro from Brattons and when I went to put it on the gas tank I seemed to have a tough time of it. Those fine threads are a pain (I guess that is why Ford changed it on to 30-31 cars)

          Anyway, I got it to fit (I...

          I want to install a motormeter in a repro 1930/31 cap. Does anyone sell the inner cap parts necessary to do the rebuild? Anyone offer this service? Suggestions?

          Radiator cap won't fit
          by gpowers
          Recently just bought my first Model A. I have searched the forum and didn't find any posts on this topic so forgive me if this has already been answered a thousand times. The radiator cap that was on the car when I bought it was just sitting on the neck and the tabs on the cap were completely rusted off. I figured it would be no big deal so I ordered a cap from Macs and when it came in, it wouldn't...

          Center Main Bearing Cap
          by WayneT
          (FYI, I am working under the car.) I removed the center main bearing cap due to fact it has bad Babbitt. I am going to replace the bad cap with a good cap with good Babbitt. The old cap had 4 shims on each side totaling .014 shim thickness on each side. I am seeking an answer from someone that is knowledgeable on A main bearing cap replacement. (from under the car). My question is, how much total...
