            I wonder how well round wheel chocks work? Didn't the Egyptians move blocks of stones with round rollers? Chocks work well if you don't forget to place them. I was interrupted once had forgot until I was chasing my van down the hill. My neighbor said sorry see you later!

              I carry a cheap but effective chock from Autozone. It fits between and tucked under the front seats of the Tudor. It's cheap and effective insurance and works better than a makeshift chock.

                  Consider it a 'belts and suspenders' kind of thing.

                    The service bulletins say to put the E.B. on before you wash your car??? Are they AFRAID it will run away, like an Old Dog, before his bath?
                    Buster T. has SHORT hair & can clean himself to his SKIN! In 7 years, he's NEVER had a BATH & smells as fresh as a DAISY!! It's like havin' a SELF cleanin' OVEN--LOL
                    You know WHY a Dog licks his "YING-YANG"?----Because he CAN!---LOL

                    Handy wheel chock that stows in a small space. Got this at a small swap meet in Winfield KS many years ago.

                    Wheel Balancer Floats on Air
                    by Tom Wesenberg
                    I made a wheel balancer for my Model A wheels some years ago, and just added it to the "Homemade Tools" section. I have another wheel balancer that I bought at a swap meet about 10 years ago. All the bubble balancers I've seen in the past work by pivoting on a point. This balancer works by having a concave pocket with an air hole in the center. The top part, which supports the wheel, has...

                    Please help identify bent spoke wheel
                    by slammin
                    Hello Gang!
                    This weekend I drove past a place that always has a yard sale going. I noticed an old bent spoke wheel. Its 6 lug so knew it wasn't for a Model A. Lugs are 1/2 inch on a 5 3/8 bolt circle. The wheel measures 19 x 3. Hubcap mount is 5 3/4 ID. The is a stamped steel front drum mounted on it that has an ID of 10 1/2 inches X 2 1/4 deep from edge of opening to the start of the taper....

                    Front Wheel Groaning
                    by Snagglewhen
                    My front right (passenger) wheel has recently taken to making a slight groaning sound while backing up. Not always, but sometimes. This sound does not occur when driving forward. I replaced the bearings in this wheel about a year ago with new Timken bearings. Could one of them have gone bad or am I looking at something else here?

                    The A has hydraulic brakes, if that makes a differ...

                    Steering wheel repair
                    by Standing Elk
                    Am about ready to start repairs on my steering wheel. Got a couple things to run by you guys.
                    Since the cracks are mostly fairly fine, I am thinking about taking a Dremel tool and just slightly V ing the cracks then filling them with Bondo and finishing from there. Is Bondo a good choice? After finished I plan to prime and spray paint (rattle can) it. Is there a better way? Thanks

                    Model A Ford Wheels Compared to Earlier Ford Wheels
                    by Nelson C
                    It's my understanding that the welded steel spoke forged Model A Ford wheel design is far superior for automotive use than either the wood spoke auto wheel or the bicycle spoke auto wheel. I've read that compression and tension figure in to the wheel design. Are there any articles that explain or can you explain why the Model A Ford type wheel is so excellent in comparison to wood spoke and bicycle...

                    How to know if wheels (rims) are good?
                    by Curly
                    I am trying to put 5 good 19 inch wheels together for powder coating. How does one determine if the wheels are good? Any tell tale things to look for?

                    i thought I would put them on and spin them to check for straightness, but I don’t know how accurate this might be. I will also check each individual spoke.

                    Thanks in advance....
