Re: Motor with no serial number

Looks like a 'B' motor, as it has the Fuel Pump casting in the block. The head could be a replacement and dated when it was made. The oil filler tube looks like Model A, as does the Oil Pan.

Re: wedding decoaration ideas

We tied tin cans on the car and drove it around the church parking lot, for the effect and photos, then removed them for driving on the city streets.

Re: Removed engine; some improvements?

If you are removing the water pump, replace the 4-studs with bolts. We use clutch housing-to-flywheel bolts, correct pitch and length. This makes it much easier to replace the water pump on the car...

1932 Ford Panel Truck

I'm looking for photos of 1932 Ford Panel trucks. I'm especially interested in seeing the passenger front seat and how it is mounted in the truck. I am aware that the second seat (passenger seat) was...

Re: Restored Nebraska Model "A" Is junk

Re: Flat spot in carburetor

I too recommend that for more 'power' to open the GAV a small amount. When I'm running mine at 55 mph I find that it definitely needs to be opened more than driving around town.

Re: Towing my Model A

Cross the straps that you use as tie downs as this keeps the vehicle from moving sideways while on the trailer.

Re: Gas Gauge Calibration

To answer the second part of #3, most model A's get something like 18-20 miles per gallon. A little less if only in-town stop and go driving.

Re: 1930 Ford Model A 4Dr (Inherited Don't Know Much - HELP)

As it is not very well cleaned, inside and out, I would say that it is more of a $10-12,000. car. If we knew it runs and stops, I could see a little bit more. Yes, it is a blindback sedan. The...

Re: Oil pan bolts

I too, use the 1/4 inch socket. For all the tighter it needs to be, the 1/4 inch is plenty.
