Re: Biggest scare in a Model A

Never really had a moment in one of the Model A's or T's, but a couple months ago in my '42 Jeep I was coming home from an event. We had left a little early because we could see rain clouds to the...

Re: rumble seat ins & outs

On exit, you almost have to guide their feet to the step plates and the stretch to the bumper mount is a duzzy. Other exit procedure if they're up to it - jump down.

Re: What have you found working on your A?

I pulled quite a bit of gravel out of the frame of my '42 Ford Sedan when I was first going through it, so the car must have spent some time on gravel roads. Based on a number of things, we believe...

Re: update on getting dizzy after being under the A.

Had that same problem for the past several years since I passed the 65 mark. Staying hydrated is the key, but is a very good idea anyway. Last year I had the pneumonia vaccine, which is a good idea,...

Re: Draglink has a slight kink in it.

I have a '29 Roadster that had the kink in the drag link when we bought it 28 years ago. Never effected the steering and seemed intentional. No marks in the paint, or link itself. The kink makes the...

Re: Don't discount the coil as being bad . . .

Not on a Model A, but I did a major tune-up on my '42 Jeep - plugs, points, wires, distributor cap, rotor, etc. - everything except the coil. So I'm at an event and the thing won't run right, get it...

Re: 1929 Ford Station Wagon in need of seats

The two center seats and back bench seat on the Station Wagons were all removable. There should be sets of fittings, sockets really, on the floor that the hardware bits on the seats fit into. I had...

Re: Kudos to snyders

Re: Running Board Picnic Table Accessory

We have two purchased years ago for no where near that price. Ones a low, almost coffee table height, the other more dinner table height. Both date to the 30's.

Re: Varco Model A luggage rack on Ebay

I have an original rack on my 29 Roadster which folds in two and is deeper than the slatted racks. The trunk that fits it is a good couple inches deeper than the narrower one I have on my 30 Town...

Re: Stuck wrench

Going to work on it again today using the suggestions above. Have a person coming tomorrow to pick it up and take it back to the purchaser in the mid-west, so really want to get it off of there.

Really stupid question guys - I was adjusting the brakes on my 28 Phaeton using the closed end of a 1/2in wrench. Never had any problem before, but the wrench is stuck on the adjuster and I can't get...

Re: Pickup Side Mount

My understanding is that the pickups had the spare on the drivers side in case they wanted to mount a ladder rack on the passenger side. Almost assuredly done after market but could have been done...

Re: Varnishing Woodie

How often should the varnishing be done? and how much sanding - just to knock the glass back, or take it down to raw wood? I have a 1930 A Station Wagon that was probably done 5 years ago.

I agree with the "Who knows..." crew. While the military has specifications for everything, they are also excellent scroungers. You could easily put together a story of a motorpool finding and...

Re: Tie Down Wheel Bonnets

I have a set of bonnets I use. They are very easy to put on and take off and when properly fitted essentially lock the wheel to the floor, so any side-to side motion is minimized. You do have to make...

Re: Tire changers, do you use the DIY units?

Like everybody here has said - do it yourself, just not that hard particularly after you do the first one. For me, somehow, the hard part isn't getting the tire on the rim as much as working the tube...
