Re: Very dirty filter bowl

Werner,
Wow that is way to much crud. Do they have any filters on the gas pumps at the station where you are buying your gasoline. If the crud is getting into your Model A it is also getting into...

Re: Rumble seat lid

Rumble and trunk lids are constructed of an outer and inner piece. The inner piece is crimped and maybe spot welded to the outer skin. Generally any rust will appear at the bottom of the lid as that...

Re: 1929 special coupe

Hi,
It looks like your Special originally had the drum style tail light mounted on the drivers side of the rear body cross member. There are three D nuts in the cross member just to the right of...

Re: Rear backing plates delima

Pluck,
Some of the older reproduction adjusting wedges did not have an undercut where the threads meet the wedges. This would cause the wedge not fully retract.

Re: distributor shaft

In addition to drilling the upper shaft, the cam screw also needs to be drilled.
Jim, would not the rotor keep the oil from being flung around the inside of the distributor?

If the wooden header piece is new, it may need to be shaved some to get the metal header panel to fit correctly. I would get the wood pieces in place before attaching the metal header and the sun...

Re: Help! Tie rod end install

Chad,
You said you replaced the balls on the steering arms. The originals were 1 inch in diameter. What size are the new balls?

Re: Help! Tie rod end install

If the new springs are the correct length, you can use a small C clamp to force the tie rod ends onto the ball on the steering arms.

Re: Door sill numbers

Ed,
The wood sill where the NK number is stamped is also original to the car. There might also be a body tag on either wood sill or the firewall.

Re: Another new Model A owner.

Looks like a nice car and welcome. Is there a plug in the wiper motor hole in the intake manifold? Cannot tell from the picture, but there are no signs of a vacuum windshield wiper line.

Re: distrbuter screw

I think the poster is asking about the screw that holds the cam to the upper shaft. If that is the case, there is a lock washer and flat washer under the cam screw.

Re: 1930 Sport Coupe finally!!

The NK 1535 is a production number. We feel they are for each assembly plant and are probably by body style. We believe they stamped the digits sequentially starting in late 1927 with number one for...

Re: The Rear Brake Camshaft Lever...A-2235R-2236L

Pluck,
If you assemble the left and right levers incorrectly, you may not be able to get the rods in place and if you did the rods might bend when the brake pedal is applied.

The threads are 1/2 inch by 20 threads per inch. I would buy a die of that size to chase the threads. Also, be very careful that you don't damage the threads more as the lug nuts should be...
