Re: Transport recommendations

When I moved my coupe from NJ home to PA I used a Penske truck to pull a Penske car trailer. Their equipment is top-notch and fairly priced. They are available both round-trip and one-way.

The horn has two "clips" inside the cover. The wires slide in under those clips - they have to come in from the sides to fit properly. The wires must have properly soldered "bullet" connectors on the...

Re: clutch fork

I ordered new shafts from Bratton's. They are too large in diameter. I tried driving the pedal shaft into the bell housing with no luck. It only went part way before seizing. I'm now faced with...

Re: Cold Weather Shifting

A friend recommended putting about 50% STP with 80/90 regular gear oil in the tranny to aid in shifting. Comments?

Re: clutch fork

Tom - please comment about installing grease fittings in the bell housing at the ends of the clutch shaft. Otherwise, how do you grease/lubricate those bushings? The pedals have grease fittings.

Re: Fun project voltage regulator

After reading comment #4 I searched on eBay - found a listing from Mac's saying they had one left. I placed the order, only to have it canceled two days later. Any other sources?

Re: Non-Authentic Paint Colors & Schemes

Re: Engine Stand

I would get rid of that three wheel engine stand ASAP. It's just a disaster waiting to happen. I just bought a nice four wheel one from Harbor Freight. Works a charm!!

Re: Running Poorly

I vote for a new condenser. I had these same symptoms on my 6cyl F-1 a few years ago. Don't spend your time trying to see how hot the spark is. Bite the bullet! Condenser aren't very expensive!!

Re: Model A Registration Woes

Because Maine is a no-title state I think you should be able to slide through. Just go down to your town hall and file the paperwork. I've done it before with successful outcome. Go to the town hall...
