Re: Early Oil Pan Wowes

Re: Early Oil Pan Wowes

Re: top of radiator shroud hot

It's unlikely you actually mean shroud. They only came on '28 and were usually thrown away with the engine pans. Do you actually mean radiator cap, top tank of the radiator, or radiator shell?

Re: Economical and effective hydraulic brake conversion.

Re: No compression but starts and drives???

Sounds like gauge problem. It certainly won't run with 0 compression and the power sounds reasonable. Don't start tearing it apart. Drive it and borrow someone's gauge.

Re: shifting NOT easy as 1-2-3

Make sure the idle isn't too fast or the hand throttle isn't advanced.
The sliding gears have to slow down to match the next ratio.
Riding in a friends Model A should help you with your technique.

Re: Pump Gas for a Model A

In California we haven't had an option for non gasohol fuel in years.

Maybe I can obtain "boat gas" at a local airport. It's worth a try.
