Re: Cos of A Restoration

time wise it is going to take at least a 1000 hours to do, if you really restore it. now add the parts. Buy one already done unless you just want to do it.

Re: Carb riser on stromberg 81 carb

That is what I do with my 94 and electric pump. shut it off before I get to the garage. It does away with the gas perking when you stop.

Re: Stipe distributor cam

Along with the dwell the big difference is each high point on the cam is going to be the same. The other repo cams that I have checked are not. so you get the timing for each cylinder different.

I run a single 94 with a home made intake. I have used a Rochester 4 barrel from a 56 chev. on my home made Miller head. For just driving around the 94 works the best for me. with my Miller head.

Re: Sport Coupe Resurrection - Debris in Bores

easy way to free the clutch. Start it up and get it running good. Then start it in low gear, drive it around the yard or some wide open spot with the clutch pushed all the way in. It will break...

Re: Psychological pressure from this forum to "upgrade". Fake news?

My first Model A was 1960. At that time they were adding rumba seats, step plates, hydraulic brakes, cowl lights and so on.So what really changed. It is our car we can do as we please.
