Re: Starting Issue - Need Ideas!

I don’t think this is true. I don’t see how timing would or could influence whether the starter would turn the engine over. Can you explain that, Bob?

Re: Newbie with a question

In my experience most people think the Model A, whatever year, is a Model T.

Re: Roads in the old days Australia

That would take all the fun and adventure out of it. My concern would be more about the environmental damage and possible destruction of wildlife habitat, as well as sacred aboriginal sites.

Re: Removing the cam on a Model A

I must be missing something here. I donít understand why you donít just remove the head. Itís an easy job and would address the cam removal/valve train conundrum.

Re: Stymied

What is the problem? Does 3/4 choke mean 3/4 turn open or 3/4 pulled up? Did it run before you put all new parts in? If so, why did you replace things? If not, what was the problem?

Re: Stipe shocks

You may have ordered between production runs. It takes a while sometimes. But I can’t explain their communication breakdown. Keep calling.
