Re: Turn Signal ideas

I have heard of this before, but do the turn signals show up with the headlights on?
I would be concerned that someone would not see it thinking the headlight was just loose.

Re: STP and Transmission: any negative experience ?

Although I don't use Stop think the viscosity could be an issue in low temps. Even the 600 w is a little stiff on a cold morning in Oregon.

Re: Towing your A

I went all out and have never regretted it. I had Cargo Mate build one for my A's. It is a 16 foot enclosed, Vee nose. I had it made 6 inches taller than standard to fit a sedan. I had Etrack built...

Re: What modern points do you use?

Re: Shippiing a Model A

I just finished doing this last week. I purchased a CCPU in Ohio and had it shipped to Oregon. The cost of shipping was just about equal to what my gas would have cost.

Re: Modified timing pin

I just Chuck the pin in a drill and run it while sharpening on the grinder. That way it stays centered. Be careful to not mess up the threads

Re: Harmonic Balancer

I had forgotten about those! I used to keep one for industrial emergency use. They work well and are flexible. Good solution!

I just had my local shop recore it with a three row core. No freight and a local person to deal with if something is wrong. $650.

Re: Harmonic Balancer

So, it appears that were you to break a fan belt, you would have to remove the front pulley in order to replace it?

Re: Upholstry Stapler

When we put new upholstery in our roadster a few years back, I bought a 1/4" crown pnuematic stapler from Harbor freight. It worked very well and have used it for many other things since. I found it...

Sumosprings

After putting new springs on the front of my 51 F1 it seems pretty choppy even though the shocks seem to have good action to them, (removed and cycled). I am considering putting Sumosprings in. They...

Wink Re: Installing motometer

Mines been on there for over 30 years. No problem getting it off when I put a new radiator in last year.
I put a little Teflon tape on the threads to seal and protect.

Re: How’s your Shortened pitman arm working?

I put one on my 29 roadster, and it definitely steers easier. There is a wider turning radius with the seven tooth box, but it's worth it. Between that and the Mitchell transmission, now my wife can...

Re: Photo of 1931 4-Door With Blackwall Tires

I am mulling around a future color change and this helped. My wife and I agree that a model A with some wheel colors looks better with whitewalls, like Jeff P's car.
But if you change the wheel...

Re: Poor radiator fit

Joe, you are right, it is either a 30/31 frame, or cross member, or the late 29. So my next question is, are there other differences in the later frame. If not, I could just change the cross member....

Re: Cleaning Cooling System

I first flushed mine. Then when I had the head off, I jacked up the rear of the car and got everything dead level. Disconnected the radiator and pugged the inlet. Filled the block with 100% vinegar...
