Re: Radiator decision?

Use to have a brassworks as well. It worked well and never overheated. It was the 10 fin pressurized radiator.

I now have a modern VT core in my car also pressurized and it runs 160* all summer....

Re: Model A touring engine

Never heard of Bert's selling anything bad. I would trust it. I have a Ron Kelley engine & love it. My brother has one and my dad has one being built.

Re: I think a friend's coupe is the highest mileage

Neat! Would love to see the documentation. I'm not disputing it, it would just be interesting.

Re: Touring safety

CB radios are the best tool for touring. All the cars are connected and on the same page when things change.

Re: Not popular but...pinto engine?????

I have driven cars with the Pinto/C4 or Pinto/'39 transmission set ups. It's very nice if done properly! If I were to put a different motor in my A besides an A motor, I would definitely go the Pinto...

Re: Driving in traffic and on tours

I've always driven my on freeways. Growing up, my grandpa avoided them at all cost. But he also rarely drove over 45 mph, so that was probably a smart decision. He didn't even really like driving on...

Re: Mitchell Overdrive, 26 and 36%

If you put a 36% overdrive in a stock model A it'll fall on it's face when you throw it in overdrive. You would have to have a very strong touring motor to support this. But even then, it would be an...

Re: To: Fort Worth Club Members

Our grandpa was invited to be a charter member and attend that first meeting to start the club, but he didn't go. He was always mad at himself for not doing it.

When I go on a roadtrip, I carry a spare of everything. I prepare my car so I don't have to work on it on the side of the road. But accidents happen. I also let my sister and other people drive my...

Re: Electronic Ignition Opinions Needed

have them in 3 cars and have never had a problem. The only ones I've seen fail have been from user error or incorrect set up. I have 30,000 miles on the one in my car and it's never missed a beat....

Re: Auxiliary Gauges

I have one and wouldn't ever tour in a car without one. It lets you know when or if there's a problem before it's too late and done damage. I have mine on my steering column and it sits right on 160...

Re: Pressurized oiling system.

The car could be using one of those distributors driven off the timing gear. I saw a setup like this on an A400 for sale at Pate Swap meet last year. It was a neat set up.

Re: 16 in wheel - tube needed?

Out of 6 of the 35 ford rims on my car, only 1 doesn't hold air and had to have a tube added & it's a spare (bias ply). The radials on the ground have had no problems holding air.

Re: Is it unusual for a Rex-A-Co water temp gauge to fail?

I went through 2 of these. 1 failed and one never registered the temp correctly. I bought one at tractor supply with actual numbers on it and it's worked great ever since.
