Re: Model A Bucking at 45 mph plus

Not getting enough fuel into the carb bowl. I don’t know about B carbs, but if it’s like the zenith, your fuel line might be pressing against the screen in the carb.

Re: Electrical issue

Your engine is getting its ground through the choke rod.

Make sure your crank pulley is not loose or cracked.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

Sure, you just have to “worry” them in. You will find the hole. Stick with it.

Re: King Pin Retaining Bolts

If they fit ok before and they won’t now, your axle is backwards. Easier to just leave it the way it was unless you are up to the job.

Re: Will turn over but won't start

I just ran into a crazy one. All was good with distributor housing and cap off. With the cap on, no spark. With the cap off, we then pushed down on the ball of the upper plate and things shorted out....

Re: Rear leaf spring questions

If you put two big people in your rumble, it comes down enough to affect your brake rod lengths. Not bad, but the braking is different.

Re: No electricity. No crank. No horn

You need to see if the engine will rotate. Put it in third gear and push it backwards. If the fan blade rotates, that clears the bendix. If it won’t turn, push hard rearward until you hear it pop...

Re: Rear leaf spring questions

That bolt yo loosened should has been left in place. You are very lucky. Someone else can tell you the number of leafs. 10 is probably correct. Assemble the spring using a long threaded rod. All...

Re: Clutch Stuck Disengaged

Can you see if the transmission input shaft is turning? If it is, then the problem is downstream of that. Hang in there.

Re: Testing a cutout

I think your set would work, but the light would be on when the running above idle. Why not just use the ammeter. If it is discharging when you turn off the engine, it is stuck. Easier just to put a...

Re: No Start - Loud Pops

Time it again, and be sure.
If it was running before you put the new carb on, there was no need to retime it.

Re: Engine is rough when accelerating

We had one like this and it turned out to be the float. The guy who rebuilt the carb put two washers under the float valve and that put the float way off. Just take a peak and look at the float and...

Re: Odd noise only when moving 1930 A

Tighten up those hood props and put something in there to keep them from hitting any metal.
And make sure your support rods are tight at the firewall.

Re: Odd noise only when moving 1930 A

Could be your speedo cable, but your speedo should be jumping around.
It is a light noise, so it’s nothing related to the engine or transmission. It says here!
Reach up under the gas tank from...

Re: Misfire and backfire when hot

Next time it acts up, toss about a bottle of water on the carb bowl. That would cool it off. Cant hurt anything.
