Re: My Pet Peeve - Landau Iron Rant

Re: My Pet Peeve - Landau Iron Rant

You've got them on the correct sides now. The curves are correct. If you now switch them end for end, the knob at the center will come out on top of the iron, not the bottom. At least that's right...

Re: My Pet Peeve - Landau Iron Rant

THANK YOU for saying it. I love my sport coupe. (Everyone knows the sport coupe is the most beautiful of all Model A's.) But seeing the landau irons on the wrong side is like fingernails on a...

Re: spark, but not in the right places

A weak, failing battery will do this. The battery seems OK because it will turn the engine over with the starter, but there is not enough juice left to power the ignition. Try turning the engine...

Re: New Front Spring

From the picture you posted, it looks like the bolts would still be too long even if you added an eleventh leaf as a spacer. There are two different styles of starting crank bearings (crank...

Re: Wolf whistle

Many years ago, I mounted a wolf whistle on the intake manifold at the windshield wiper vacuum line attachment using a brass T as suggested above. The inside diameter of the brass fitting is too...

Re: Turn signals - thoughts please

Re: Looking to buy a 31 - advice needed

If it is in fact "original paint" which was applied at the factory, you may want to consider preserving that paint if possible. Don't be too quick to paint over it. The seller may mean that it is...

Re: hood support

I have the 22250 type hood support on my coupe. There is a strange magnetic attraction between the hood support and my bald head. Any time I am within three feet of my car with hood up I have this...

Re: Carburetor Float valves

I have had three viton tipped float valves. The first one leaked. The second stuck in the closed position every time I stopped at a stop light. The third one is still in my car. It has not leaked...

Re: International Harvester? What year?

Many years ago, one of our MARC members had a restored IH which, to the best of my memory, was a 1908. It look very similar to the picture in Post #1, and so I think your
indication of 1910 is...

Re: Powering a GPS with 6 volt.

My Garmin works great on 6-volt positive ground Model A. Just be sure you reverse the polarity on the socket. I have run it for several years with no problem.

Re: 1931 ford sedan

Re: leaks around differential bolts

I used Indian Head shellac just as Tom Endy suggested. This did not totally stop the seepage, but improved it to a manageable degree. My hands and fingers got really messy with the shellac, so I...

Re: Vaporlock and the ensuing conversations

RHW,
Exactly what occurs when you experience vapor lock? You say it happens after you let the car sit for one half hour or so, but what happens? It won't start? Or it starts and dies? I'm just...
