Re: Smooth Shifting The Model A

John,

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

Floats,

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.

Re: Transmission dipstick kit

Hey Bob,

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

Would have been a good idea to back flush it since you didn't know the history of the radiator.

Re: 6V to 12V conversion

I have a 1966 Porsche 912 (4 cylinder) that is 6 volts. The first year for the 911 (6 cylinder) was 1966 as well but I'm not sure if it's 6 or 12 volts.

Re: Exterior Door Handles

dmaxweb,

There is not much “NEW Old Stock” left. Do you mean “Original Equipment” as compared to Repro?
