Nothing uncomfortable to lay a hand on indefinitely.

    When the grease in the odometer gets old and dried out it is common for them to stick when trying to turn over a big number.
    When a speedometer is REBUILT the odometer should be taken apart to clean out the hard dried out grease and new grease applied.
    This is a very time consuming job and requires special tools, some rebuilders skip this step.
    Calibration is also time consuming...

    Helped my plumber install a gas tank into his late '31 Sports Coupe, installed the door latches, and futzed with the rumble seat lid, more work on that later.

    My first thing is to question that they are original hinge pieces on the rumble lid. The repro units are small in every direction and so I would expect that you would need the pivot point where you have the mark.

    The hinge should be smooth on the faces and fit like a glove to the rumble lid. You also should expect to find 3 Dnuts at each mount point. The repro hinge will not fit original...

    I did not, but will next time I am over there.



    None. I don't think they have been touched.

    This is a puzzler. We will keep picking at it. More as I know more. Thanks...
