    I looked,..I also dug out a 10-32 "flat head" Allen screw (best that I could do) to check the fit,..looks okay. The head OD is .372" - .375",...do you know the head OD of an original screw?

        Sorry,..gez...I could have looked that up!
        That should fit nicely!
        BTW,..I measured the OD of the champer on the panel that we think is a style 2,...then did the same on a style 3,...there the same! Drill a panel and look,..I think you
        kinda know were I'm going with this...?

          Yeah, that was the reason for asking the size of the hole. grin

          I've done some looking and can't find the dememsions on a french head screw. seems doc did an article on them, although I remember something wrong with his conclusion.

              Model A news 2001 Vol. 48, issue 1, page 12-13. I haven't looked at it since it was issued, but it seems to me Marco T. said one of the screws shown was repop. if anybody digs it out I'd like to see the photo. My MAN are buried in a very cold shop.
              Here's the drawing from the standard parts book. picture still needed.

                  I always thought of French Head as being another name for oval head.

                    Doesn't one have a flat relief on the outer edge of the head?

                      Relief on the edge and depth of slot?

                          When did they use this one? Clipped top, champhered lower holes and a notch on the right side towards the top. Rod

                            Rod,..that looks like the 2nd style (just like the one Jim was looking for),..I wonder IF it's Canadian, the notch, it's on the right side, I think the notch is for power for the wiper

                              I was pretty sure it was the second style. I sent pics of it to Dean Dreznek several years ago and he was insistnat that one with this configuration never existed originally. At any rate I have it put back in case I end up buying the late Feb of 28 tudor locally. I thought I had a deal made for it twice and he has backed out of selling it both times. After I get the rest of the med bills paid again I will try again. Rod
