  • radiator splash shield felt

    i removed the radiator splash shield and there is no felt between it and the radiator shell. How does this piece fit? there are two holes on the top of the shield in the middle. Does it go there?

    Yes it goes on the front side with two 1/8" pop rivets to stop the radiator shield from hitting it and making a noise. Grant

      The felt is held on with split rivets using those two holes. All the suppliers sell the kit

      The 28-29 cars use two pads,,, 30-31 uses one

        Just checked my original radiator apron for my 1931 Sport Coupe and the rivets are solid with hollow end rolled out . Grant

          Radiator straighening
          by JohnB15632
          I figured that there was something wrong with the radiator installation that prevented the hood from aligning correctly.

          Well, I backed my A out into the sunlight and wow, my radiator is catiumbus.

          So, how do I straighten the radiator?

          Radiator shell fit
          by Art Ebeling
          Today I was mocking up the front fenders and running board aprons to the frame to take to the body shop. I also put the radiator shell on the radiator in order to install the hood. What keeps the bottom of the radiator shell from contacting and scratching the front fender?

          Observations on pulling the engine.
          by 2manycars
          I pulled the engine out of the tudor this morning for a refresh, and found a few surprises, and some usual nuttiness from Henry.
          Who thought of running the headlamp wires through the radiator shell should be fired. A real pain with the early headlamps that have the tiny screws attaching the wire to the insulating barrel at the headlamp connection.
          I can guess why original engine splash...

          Radiator shell rivets
          by wrndln
          I need to install the lacing on a re-plated radiator shell. I have accumulated several lengths of split rivets over the years. I have some black 5/16", 3/8" and 7/16" long split rivets. The 7/16" rivets have a larger head diameter than the other two - too large in my opinion. I also have the special tool to correctly install the rivets. I suppose I could try each of them,...

          New radiator decision
          by mhsprecher
          I need to get a new radiator for my late 28 roadster. The good news is that there are options. The challenge is that there may be more than one good option. Here is what I have narrowed it down to:

          1. New Berg's radiator
          2. New Brassworks round tube radiator
          3. Have Bert's recore my old radiator

          Many people love Berg's radiators. They don't recore anymore,...

          Does anybody know where I can get the Ford drawings/blueprints for the '29 radiator? I am interested in the specification of the radiator frame dimensions, core placement, etc.

          Anyone have any experience with reproduction splash apron that goes under the radiator. Did it fit properly? Were did you buy it?
