  • Oval Lens Fuel Gauge Priced to Sell

    Well, maybe not!
    Are these people really this clueless or greedy to think they can get that kind of money for a crusty old gauge.

      Based on most of their listings, I would classify this seller as a rag dealer! Most likely they know nothing about Model As and the price was suggested by some who knows nothing about Model As. The listing has a full page of disclaimers and not one word about the item. I wouldn't buy it if the price was 99 cents and free shipping! I see this type of pricing for used books on Amazon. Most are offered for ten bucks and a few sellers want $100. Make me wonder if they aren't selling drugs instead of books.

        My vote goes to this being a way obtain and pay for drugs. There are just too many auto objects for sale at too high a price these days.

      But it says 'NOS may have imperfections' then uses that over-used phrase 'has patina'

      Looks like the decimal point needs to be shifted one value, to the left, then it would be $3.49 of course then S&H has to be at least $80 I mean let's be fair...................

      Thickness ( Gauge ) Of Replacement Parts
      by Greg
      The gauge of my 1930 firewall is 16. This is also the thickness of the sub rail extensions ( that the front floor boards rest upon) at the front of the car. I need to replace these parts and I wanted to use something that was as thick as the original. I checked with Bert's Model A in Denver, and also with Bratton's. Both companies said that they get their sheet metal items from Brookville Antique...

      Do You Recognize This After-Market Gauge Bracket?
      by Ayyy
      This appears to be an older pressed steel gauge bracket.
      Does someone recognize the manufacturer and era?

      This one looks like it's missing a part that clamps the bracket to the steering column...or am I missing something here?

      Replacing gas gauge . . .
      by JohnnyDeMichael
      I purchased a tool to remove the gas gauge. Is there another tool I need to remove the glass in the gauge or will a certain size bolt work?

      What are the Specs of Your engine?
      by Tom Wesenberg
      If your engine is in good condition right now, then it's a good time to check the compression, vacuum at idle and higher speed, coolant temp, and generator volts.
      Write these down and keep them with your car, then you have a good basis to check against when something goes wrong.

      Removing the gas gauge
      by BillLee/Chandler, TX
      Tank for my '29 Tudor, got from Berts. Came with the old gas gauge in it. I want to get the gauge out. How?

      I bought the special tools that are supposed to work. Was warned that they are close to worthless but already had them. The tank has been sitting with PBBlaster for over a week. The tools ARE close to worthless! Soft pot metal, poor fit, and incapable of taking the gas gauge out....

      Well we made it but not without problems. Car did fine (except these damn brakes) until we hit this long, long, long, did I mention long uphill climb to Boon N.C. It was warm out. Car started missing and then quit. I could get it to restart but then it would quit when pulled out into traffic. I could see bubbles at the top of the glass fuel bowl. I opened the gas cap but made no difference....
