  • Part 13....More FINE Point details and finishes...1928 TUDOR Henry Winner.

    Mark, I was perusing the Facebook postings and ran across the pictures of the '28 Tudor and was wondering exactly what month '28 that Tudor was because until November they had the 5 piece service brake assembly. Also, that rear running wire harness does drop below the motor mount, but I don't think it should hang down that far before being picked back up onto the frame rail. Mine has a hole in the cross member for the harness to travel through after the motor mount.

    I was also wondering if the June 28 cutoff for e28 was etched in stone hard wall, because I have what I consider to be a "transitional" 28 built in July that has the holes for the left ebrake in frame and body, but with the centered ebrake handle.
    It also uses the early wiper motor, early windshield opening arms, and a few other little things that really don't make it an "e28" but it also is not a late 28.

    Just asking.....
    You wana look waaay far up da road and plan yer route because the brakes are far more of a suggestion than a command!

    "Any calendar
    date specified in the Guidelines is the earliest for which
    a part or design is acceptable. It will also be acceptable
    to use the pre-existing part for two (2) months after that
    date on vehicles and six (6) months on AA commercial
    vehicles. This is based on the lag time between drawing
    preparation and actual production use and Ford 's policy
    of using up superseded parts first."

        60 day leeway
        by Jim Mason
        I know how i interpret the 60 day leeway in the standards.

        How do you interpret the statements early 28, thru april 28, a graphic used bop to april 28? keep in mind the graphic usually shows an overlap. Do the graphics already allow the 60 days or not?

        E28 = 1/01/28 to 4/30/28 part could be found up to 6/30/28

        Thru April 28 = from 01/01/28 to 4/30/28 part...

        Figuring out actual build month
        by rheacox
        This is going to get a little nitpicky and somewhat speculative but please bear with me

        My car is a 1930 Murray Fordor. For the longest time I just figured it was a later '30 because of the round speedo but now I'm finding discrepancies. Without pulling the body up to check the frame number of course is where the speculation comes in...

        1) In all of my research into...

        Wiper Motor
        by Soapy
        If I am reading the standards correctly, my early 1931 Tudor would have had a Trico C1B or C2B motor (the B vacuum motors not chrome plated, so probably for the closed cars). I didn't find any reference to the difference between C1 and C2 motors. My new windshield frame has 5 holes, but it looks like I only needed 3, so this frame may have come from an early 1930 car? The small outer holes are 5"...

        '28 Frame and early engine mount
        by Greynomad
        I am building up another A out of bits and pieces I have laying around. Originality is not important but a good driving car is. The chassis I have is an early one where the engine is bolted direct to the front X member. Does this configuration cause vibrations to be transmitted through the car? If the answer is No, why did Henry change? Cracking? If it is worth the effort to change, what is the best...

        'A' Frame

        If for whatever reason a person was going to build a Model A, piece by piece what would you look for in a frame, front and back axle? Obviously not going for perfection, just a good driver......

        Strengths and Weaknesses
        by Mitch
        I guess we all have our strengths and weaknesses when answering questions on the VFF. For me my strengths are more mechanical, diagnosing, and repair, building a car,,, my weaknesses are JS type things, interchangeability, what fits what with different body styles and things like that. (Steve Plucker type questions)..Or maybe it's just easier to say the things Rowdy & Wiz, Mason and others seems...
