Re: pinto engine on model A

Thanks Dudley. I think that Lotus may have used that same engine in the Super 7 Roadster.

Re: pinto engine on model A

There was a Lotus/Cortina produced in the UK. Unless I am mistaken, it had a Climax head and probably a cam.

A friend of mine had a Formula Ford race car that he ran in amateur races at Riverside...

Re: bmw woes

Could be the electric water and/or the thermostat gave out. The electric water pump is known to fail around 100k miles. Too much plastic is used throughout the BMW engine to reduce weight.

Re: water pump end play how to stop?

I second Fredís comment. If youíre getting the engine rebuilt, might as well get a leakless water pump and an aluminum two blade fan if you donít already have one. Cheap upgrades compared to the cost...

Re: Battery charger????

I got a similar Battery Tender but mine is 6v/12v. It automatically selects 6v or 12v depending on the voltage of the battery. Itís listed for $79 but I got it at Costco for $44.

Re: anyone using aluminum radiators

It’s hard to find one that fits. Some people have reported on a recent thread that the mounting tabs are not correct and they had to do some modifications.

Some of the Chinese companies that make...

I suspect you've never been to Arizona in Summer! We never go to the Coachella Valley in Summer when the average temperature is over 100 degrees for three straight months.

Re: Smooth Shifting The Model A


I agree completely with your analysis. Some people down shift in order to use the engine to help slow down the car. The faster the car is going the higher you have to rev the engine to...

I agree with using Purdy's method; however, it's easier for me to follow when the procedure is broken up as follows:

Re: New to Ford Model A

Welcome to the Barn. Nice looking ROADSTER AA! Cutting off the roofs of trucks was pretty common when we had orange groves in So. cal. They would put tanks on the back to spray insecticides.

i think that goes for most Model A's. Sort of like air cooled rear engined VW's in general and VW Vans in particular.

Re: Transmission dipstick kit

Hey Bob,

I like your gearshift nob. It looks like it's an antique door knob. I grew up in the '40's and '50's in a house that was built in the late 1890's or early 1900's. All our doors had that...

Re: starting my A tool collection

I've bought several grease guns at Swap meets but none of them work. Do any of the suppliers sell rebuild kits?
