Re: Who does Hydraulic conversions?

Softer was probably not the best choice of wording. I just don't have to press down as far for the reaction I want. I never have to press it to the floor like I sometimes would with my mechanicals.

Re: Who does Hydraulic conversions?

I made the switch to hydraulics. My mechanicals were worn out and I had the rebuilt set of hydraulics already sitting on the shelf. I will say they are much easier to adjust and there's no concern...

Re: How do you stop vapor lock?

In the past when I had vapor lock, I would use premium gas and the problem would go away. But like said before, you should really be experiencing vapor lock with a fuel pump. I never had since adding...

Re: Touring communications:

I feel like Cb's are the best way. I have one in my car for the touring & they're even handy when it's just one other car traveling in your pack.

Re: New Front and Rear Carpet and how to Insulate the Floor

Re: Air Conditioner for Model A

My fan belt on this system is still fairly loose. I can turn the fan blade by grabbing onto it and it still charges the alternator, AC & doesn't slip.

Re: Air Conditioner for Model A

I like that you painted the faceplate and that its a clean installation. Is there any particular reason you went through the fire wall instead of around the pedals for the hoses?

Re: four row radiator for 1930?

If you want the best cooling capacity, get a VT modern core. They cool significantly better than the flat fin cores. They aren't right, but most people won't know. I have a 3 row VT core in my town...

Re: Air conditioning

Love my unit from Ken Davis. Driving in the summer use to be miserable, but now I can actually enjoy my Model A during the hot 6 months of summer here.

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....

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.
