Re: Oil Leak Fixed!

Ford specs on the application of oil grooves have proven to be false ! Engineers of that era did not understand hydrodynamics. You want a solid oil film to carry the crankshaft. So, never put any...

Re: Fuel Gage

What’s the way to bend the fuel gage wire, having everything installed ? I mean only having the filler neck to reach the wire ?

Re: Bad fit elektrolock

Thanks all. Problem solved ! I have a rebuilt po-out from Bert’s and a replated instrument panel from Dan Bixby. No matter the parts being original, there was a very tight fit ! Presumably caused by...

Re: Oil Leak Fixed!

Yes ! Certainly ! A’s shouldn’t leak while running, only when you stop the engine. A dollar size is the right size !
Of course there shouldn’t be an X carved into the lower bearing shell at all !

Re: 28-29 repro radiator shell

Crappy they are ! Bought mine from sacramentoford. Had to move the radiator forward, cut the neck, cut the lower sides, make slots instead of screw holes etc. JUNK !

Re: Chrome Dash Install Problems

Right ! Just finished the same job. Give the cable slack ! Simply take the distributor out to give it that slack

Did the oil leak come spontaniously, gradually, after rebuilding or what ?

BTW, a paint chip does not have sufficient surface for the paint shop to scan properly.

Re: Door gap

Looking at pictures of Model A’s, I suspect I may have Coupe doors or something. Anybody having data on interchangeability of doors ?

Re: Door gap

Katy, I don’t know whether they were the same width. I sold the old doors to a hotrodder before I bought the repacements.
