  • 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
      4~ Tudor's
      1~ Coupe

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

          Radiator Shield Bolts
          by KenCoupe
          I have a couple of radiator splash shield bolts that are bent. I got part A-16527 from Snyders to replace the bent ones. I have looked in all the books I have and searched the forum but can't find how these are installed. I'm not sure how to remove the Radiator Shield Bolts from the frame. Do I need to remove the splash shield to remove the old ones then put in the new ones? If I have to remove the...

          Radiator Shell/Hood Shelf Fit
          by Rumbleseater
          I noticed on our '29 Coupe that the radiator shell sits below the level of the hood shelves on both sides, and there is a large gap where the shelves sit on the radiator apron upper connection. The previous owner was a metal finisher, and had chrome plated the shelves and apron. The shelves have been trimmer along the radiator shell, and both shelves are bent to a degree. I plan on purchasing new...

          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,...

          Need a New Radiator
          by Superhart
          I have a 350 Chevy powered 1930 Model A Coupe that has a 1932 Grille shell and hood. Car is NOT a high boy or chopped. Vintage Air is installed with condenser in front of radiator. Turbo 350 transmission. I have a persistent radiator leak that seems to be evident when the car cools off. I tried Barr's Stop Leak but that didn't work. I think it's time to replace the radiator. I want a quality...

          Radiator neck measurement

          Can I get someone who owns a 28-29 A to measure with a set of calipers the outside neck of their radiator and also count the threads per inch ? Thanks in advance!
