    I was looking at the Standard Hardware 1928-1931 guide and noticed a few pieces that didn't seem to go with some of my hardware, but I'm sure more was changed than I first thought. As an example I notice about every vendor that sells valve chamber cover bolts are hex head raven, but in the Standard Hardware they are supposed to be round head bolts, B-39 which look like an ordinary round head 5/16-18 x 3/4". I don't think I have ever seen a round head bolt yet on a valve chamber cover. I also noticed a lighting switch handle washer introduced in June 1930, I wonder where that goes. I don't have a parts book, maybe somebody that has one can clarify that.

    Chevrolet had lots of round head screws, and that's why it's called the "stove bolt six" engine.
    Some engine bolts on the Model A have a dome head, but all the cover bolts are hex in shape, and not round.

    To help clear up some confusion about "bolts" and "screws", I've noticed Ford likes to call them "screws" if they go into a threaded hole, and call them "bolts" if they have a nut of the end to secure it.

      Tom, I edited my post with images from the Standard Hardware guide that is published by MARC and MAFCA. I don't have a parts book so I can't compare what is listed there. Guess I better start looking for one so I don't have dumb questions. I remember Jim Mason posting about a bolt that eluded him for years.

        20718 is listed as a hex head in my 1931 Parts Price List.

            Since I use ad blocker I don't get them and often forget to check when making the links. Sorry about that.

            by Steve Plucker
            Would anyone have a photo of the special 1928 E-Brake attachment bolt, A-20930: 3/8---24 SAE x 1-17/32 special head bolt (with Cotter Hole)?

            This is the bolt that attaches the E-Brake to the A-2797 Emergency Handbrake Lever Arm

            What does that "special head" look like?

            Thank you.

            Feb 15 1928 Indianapolis service letter #2

            I found this this Front Body Bolt omission interesting. I never knew that they left delivered the closed cars without the bolts

            April 3 1931 It seems the vintage dealer mechanics were having issues setting the timing and gaps correctly, so don’t feel bad.

            Not sure what the back of this ute is.

            Not a Geelong ute.

            Probably a one off farmer's build.



            Canadian deluxe folding stanchions for a 28/29.




            A feral 34 or 33 (I don't know the difference) chopped ute.

            Dunno what body style it started life as, but it looked a treat driving in.

            The driver...

            Great Support and thankfulness
            by Bill G
            Yesterday, being Thanksgiving in the US, I sort of got a little carried away with feeling thankful for just about everything. Health being one of them. A dear friend of ours is in rehab after suffering a heart attack, and I feel rather lucky, even with the aches and pains that go along with getting older.

            Two and a half years ago I bought a Model A. It is something my wife and I have...
