Re: EvapoRust

Thank you, that is the info I was looking for. The frame is not painted, I can partially see the number, hoping to pull the rest up.

Re: Tillotson carburetor butterfly

Not sure the exact opening spec's, yes the throttle plate must be open enough to let fuel in to idle.

EvapoRust

I found my Model A serial #. Will EvapoRust remove enough rust to be able to read the numbers. I can almost read them but not entirely.
Thanks for your input.

Re: Door hinge pins

I believe there is a tool specific to that job. Synders has it. A few bucks to save hours of time. Win win for all.

Re: Best way to prep a head before painting question

I do all the above except the masking. Too lazy to mask. Dip a finger in some wheel brg grease, put a thin coat of grease where you do not want paint. Grease will wipe off with excess paint.
Have fun

Re: Zenith carb float valve problem

One can also weigh on a mailing scale. If over spec's float is leaking and sinking. I have also reused the orig needle and seat which in my case is steel.

Re: Put the oil pan on last night.

My only thought having screwed up oh so many times is, I am glad for you that you saw the pump, running to start it would have been a disaster.

Dont feel bad, we have all been there done that.

You are correct. I have a terminal box that came off my 30, the wing nuts are solid brass.

Re: Another front drum / brake problem

Later cars have spring and washer holding shoe against the backing plate. I would make sure there is a little pressure on the shoe towards the drum.

Re: Another front drum / brake problem

I would grind down the metal part of the shoe if that is what is hitting on the inner drum.

Could be some...

Re: 6 volt Coil problems, I think.

Your test light is acting like a ground. Use a piece of wire to ground dist to block.
If that does not work then run another ground from eng to frame.

Re: Knock, knock, knock sound

Take a long screw driver to see if you can isolate the noise. If it is the timing gear you will hear it through the screw driver shaft. Or if you have a mechanic's stethoscope that will do the same.
