    • AHHHH I got it

      The motor mount bolts and nut = 5 mounting points= single item.. The 4 punched holes are the cylinders

        I think you win, but I'm guessing the 4 punched holes are the ones in the motor mounts.

        • Well it can't be the instrument dash panel because some have 5 punched holes and some have 4 punched holes and they both have 4 mounting points. Da claims it has 5 mounting points. I don't think you can count the gas gauge as a mounting point although it does keep the panel aligned...

          • Could it be the radiator shell??? It has 4 holes, but a 30-31 uses 4 mountings... \Whattya think???

              It IS the radiator shell. The hole that slips over the radiator neck is a mounting point as well as the 4 screws on sides. It has the 3 punched holes for the lights and horn, the 4th hole is for the hand crank. Mounting and holes are the same for all 4 years. The only differences would be finish.

              I actually thought of the shell but i did not consider the radiator neck as a mounting point. Especially since the shell is not in contact or rubbing the neck.

          • Question #151: Many things were installed on an engine after it was stamped with the serial number. Which two items were installed before the engine was stamped?


            Answer: Pg 2-1

            The Starter and Generator were attached to the engine prior to stamping. Check the generator, starter and starter switch. They should be no later than the engine stamping but can precede the engine up to one month earlier.

                At some point in time standardization was a creative idea.

                • Question #152: Did all Model A's originally use the gas tank filler screen / flame arrestor?


                  Answer: pg 15-7
                  All Model A's had a gas tank filler screen installed in the filler opening. This served as a flame arrrestor.

                  You guys are all correct!

                        • Question #153: All 28-29 vehicles had the rear hood hinge bracket painted body color. What types of finishes could they have been on the 30-31 passenger car body types (this is the bracket that wraps the cowl band)?
