Having FINALLY had another really nice day I installed driver's side extended front seat hinge supports like those in my Model A Tudor>>> http://www.mikes-afordable.com/product/A47902EXT.html
I have a hard time getting my left leg into the '27 Tudor and wonder how the seats are constructed as I'd like to offset the driver seat in that one too.
Maybe welding some tabs on the pads where they bolt to the floor is the easiest?
I've seen that done. The seat bracket on that website looks like it would probably work also. If I recall correctly, the front legs on both driver and passenger seats on the '26-7 Tudor are threaded like that.
Thanks Warren but they aren't. They go up into the SEAT seat and there are, what looks like, escutcheons on the seat bottom so I don't know where the support terminates........?
I'll take some pics tomorrow.......maybe help to get some ideas.......
They are threaded. I've made several. The threaded portion isn't as long as the Model A and the cross member bracket is different. You should be able to lift the driver cushion and see the nuts.
COOL and THANKS!
Just what the doctor ordered.......
On my 26 Tudor there is a double threaded plate on the top side of the seat wood. You could simply try removing the leg, then just use the forward hole to move the seat back.
I'm trying to figure out a way to get the front seats (particularly the driver's seat) UP and BACK on my Tudor I think moving the legs to the front hole may help some, but this seat needs to come up. Right now my knees are darn near on the dash and I'm not a tall guy. Need to figure out how to raise the rear seat supports as well. The front seating is one part of that model that was definitely not Improved in 1926.
This is what I did. Being tall over 6', my knees were always up against the steering wheel. So I made these straps that moved the seat clips back. You can make them any size. I first made them of aluminum, but they will bend and did. Steel is a better choice. Anyway it worked for me.
To raise the drivers seat I used a piece of 2X4 (painted black) between the back bottom of the seat and the metal feet.
Why isn't somebody making replacement feet? (P/N 50099X)
I moved the seat to the forward holes on my Tudor and it definitely made a difference in leg room but a 6 feet tall I like the 2 in extension mention here.
Rather than take more apart than necessary I took the seat off the "hinges" and looked things over.
I decided to simply drill two holes in the floor behind the brackets and re-use the original rear holes.
I needed two shorter carriage screws and one hex nut vs. a square one but that was pretty easy and what a difference......
