ANother quick question, will have heaps the next few months as we get into the build of the roadster. Is there any differences between 28/9 and 30/1 chassis?

A few things have changed in the last week, will post some picks the next few weeks when my web site is up. In short, we are no longer building the T roadster, but a "30 roadster, the body of which dad "just had lying around". We're going to try and build it on the cheap and will try and post pics all thru the build.

Cheers and beers

OK JIMBOB,
Lets see some pix, cos now I'm starting to think you must be sitting on the original early iron gold mine or else your imagination is running wild. icon_razz.gif
The challenge has been set, JIMBOB, lets see that stuff, in particular the '23T roadster body!!
As for your question, the only diff. between "A" chassis's is things like running board brackets, fender brackets & such other " hang ons " the basic chassis is the same dimensions, for 28-31.

Challenge accepted! When I sort out this web stuff the pics will be up. Oh, did I fail to mention the '30 body is glass , has a steel roadster cowl and doors. The old man has a heap of stuff laying about, has had many cars and bits. His father owned saw mills on the coast and dad bought whatever he could lay his hands on, fords and chevs, in the late 60's and 70's. Stored it all at the saw mill. Then in the early 80's the land was sold, dad had no room, sold all he could and stripped the parts off what remained, headlightts, grills, gauges, guards etc. He kept all the T stuff, and all the A stuff.

Cheers and beers
Jimbob

Yes, the front crossmember is different. I don't have the dimensions, so try to get one of each and compare them. The radiator mount pads on the '30 sit lower, relative to the top of the chassis, but again, not sure of the dimension.

Put another way - a stock dimension '30 radiator on a '28 crossmember sticks the radiator up in the air, and the bonnet won't fit. There are differences in the bonnet hold-down brackets that are riveted to the chassis, though they are easily fixed.

Thanks for the info blokes, interesting with the front crossmember. Have a grill thats the same as a 32 ford but without the chrome (commercial?). Guess we will be looking for a 30-1 front crossmember. Any one have one laying about?

Oh yeh, for those who are interested, the photos ARE on thier way to a thread near you soon.

Cheers and beers,
Jimbob

Could be worth looking for a new replacemet one from the aftermarket.
The originals tend to crack around the centering hole for the spring.

Good aftermarket ones are made of thicker gauge steel.

Its my understanding that the stamped repro crossmembers are '28\'29 replicas. I could be wrong. I was once before.

JIMBOB,
You're a lucky man, that's all good stuff, hard to see from the pic, but I suppose that T is an aussie made version.
The grille is 32 commercial, doesn't have removable centre, but still useable.
We all wish we could have kept our stuff from years ago, looks like your dad did
Cheers, Phil.

hi there guys, Most of the crossmembers that are on the market are lowered 32 ford version which have a few extra degrees of castor or camber (mmm i always get confused on which one is which )
which is an advantage when setting a chassis up with a degree of rake. I always use the Deuce Factory crossmembers in all the Model A chassis that i build. If i can help any more just let me know, or if you need a repo chassis i have one in stock

Regards

hey toprodz

isnt the total 6 degree? seemt o remember that from somewhere,

keep the questions comming jim as this is the sort of stuff we should be discussing, as its a good learning curve for some , and causes others to rack their memory for what they use to know off by heart.
