Re: MHS Students Model A

I have contacted My wife's cousin about the 1930 Tudor! It is a mostly complete car with a spare engine and some other spare/extra parts. I was wrong about the price, he wanted $4000. (Thats a...

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

29 Chevies were known as "Axle breakers" We had one in our family and it was disliked because of this.

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

Two things; A)the physical survival of the cars, Namely, not so much wood in the bodies. The use of Vanadium still helped to retard rust (though not completely) damage. So the cars and their parts...

Re: Marvel Mystery Oil

It ain't a mystery any longer! Chemists have broken it down a long time ago! But it started in 1923 when the ingredients were a mystery. I'm assuming it didn't change much since then.

Re: It ran when parked ..... at the bottom of the lake

If it's GAZ AA (and I think it is) it was probably found at the bottom of lake Ladoga. The city of St Petersburg (Leningrad) was under siege and was being supplied by trucks across the ice on the...

Re: Helpful Tips: Removing Perch Bolts From The Front Axle, Model A

Re: Differential rebuild, lube bearings for preload adjustments?

I'm sure Tom Endy would echo this, since he's where I got it from! The shaft of the pinion should be put in a lathe or (If you have the setup) a drill press and polished with say, an 80grit wetordry...

Wanted, 29 Briggs with belted hood

As Title says, I need a 29, 60C Briggs hood. Most 29 hoods are smooth. This Briggs 60C hood has a belt line formed into the side. Maybe only the top pieces!

Re: Not a Ford , but what is it?

Dodge was my first choice because of the disc wheels, but it wasn't quite Dodge. Then I got to the Studebaker. Having worked with a 1922 Studebaker, I, too, decided it was more of a Stude than a...

Re: Best repo ring and pinion?

You guys are possibly making a $465 error! The gears they make for Ferrari are probably made in the USA. THEY DON"T MAKE GEARS FOR MOD. As! They buy them from some guy in Italy! I don't want to...

Re: Best repo ring and pinion?

Re: 3.78 vs 3.54 rear end and speedometer/miles

I would do it! I've done it twice! Please for your sake, read the Tom Endy articles. Cost, $465 for the gear set. Approximately $ 40 @ for the 4 tapered bearings. $16 @ for two "cups" or races. I...

Re: 3.78 vs 3.54 rear end and speedometer/miles

A 3.54! One of the best things I ever did! Rebuilding the rear is a PITA, however it's worth it. If you live in a flat area and have a strong engine, you can go to a 3.27. I am in a very hilly area,...

Re: Gearshift lever bending?

A little off topic here! When you are welding the .500 (12.5 MM I think) ball on the bottom of the lever, I always "Forge" the ball as much as I can with a hammer. This makes the ball a little...

Re: Finding local A people

Somewhere in your policy, it says that the car must be kept in a locked barn, garage, etc. There are actually a lot more cars around than anyone knows about for this reason. And it just makes good...

Angry Re: Rear spring spreader

Mine was made from 1 1/2" chrome moly scrap, probably schedule 40, or there about. I also used 1" threaded rod. It works well! Don't try 3/4" It will bend. Almost took my leg off! Sorry, I...

Re: 600w oil

Or put another way, today's lubricants are higher quality and better suited to the job than anything from 1930. Steam Cylinder oil?

Re: 600w oil

Don't ignore homegrown variations of STP. I won't use it straight, but as a concoction with other thick gear oils. The rear end does not need 600. The transmission does! Why? you ask.
To slow the...
