Re: Brake energizer kit questions

We just re-built my front brakes without floaters and they work extremely well now, but we spent considerable time making sure they were properly centered.

Re: Where oh where has all the gas gone?

If you’ve been running it that rich you might want to pull & clean your spark plugs.

Re: 30 Model A Zenith Carb

Re: Turn Signals . . . Your Thoughts

Re: Just bought a 1931 Model A

I had my garage floor professionally finished with epoxy paint about 14 years ago, and it still looks almost new. The biggest enemy I was told is too high of moisture in the slab. They have a meter...

Re: Standard Interior in a 30 Town Sedan?

Tom
Congrats on getting your first Model A. You and I spoke on the phone, and it sounds like your car was quite nicely done, and am sure you will enjoy. I enjoy my Town Sedan so much that I...

Re: Brake feel . . .

Getting the brakes to work properly and well normally involves a lot more than adjusting them. That’s a good place to start, but after that you need to systematically inspect the entire system and...

Re: Current BEST TIRES for daily driver?

I am very happy with the Goodyear tires I put on about 4 years ago....much better than the prior BF Goodrich. Lots of guys now are using the newer radial tires and seem very happy with them.

Re: Model A Brake Lights

I also really like the LED tail lights....much brighter and all red. Also having two tail lights on the rear of the car....I can’t imagine driving a Model A today with only one tail light.....

Re: Standard Interior in a 30 Town Sedan?

I have a 1930 Town Sedan that I have owned for over 13 years now, and it was painted in Copra Chicle and Copra Drab. From what I have seen over the years is many variations of those colors, but I...

Re: Replacing Wood In a '30 Blindback

I would sure think that Brent would weigh in. You might try sending him a message. I am sure he has had some experience with that model.

Re: Snow bird conversion at Iola WI car show

Saw your photos and that looks really neat. I would think it is quite effective in the snow....have you tried it in fairly deep stuff?
Can it be easily converted back to road use?

Re: just curious

It seems to me that most of the Model A owner’s I know or have heard with a Mitchell, in the standard 26% configuration, prefer the stock 3.78 rear end. The Town Sedan is the heaviest Model A, so...
