Re: Insurance

I use AAA, with the only restriction being I can’t use it to work regularly. I did have Grundy several years ago, and later found out they did not approve of me using the Model A regularly for going...

Re: Late 31 stop light switch replacement

Re: Check your fan blades

I am assuming that must have been an original fan blade. It is known that those will almost certainly fail over time, so folks are constantly warned about them, and to replace them with a new, solid...

Re: cup shaped interior washers and screw purpose?

Yes.....on my Town Sedan they are on all the screws attaching those trims, but I bought my car nicely restored. But the gentleman who did restore was pretty meticulous in his research and following...

Re: cup shaped interior washers and screw purpose?

My 1930 Town Sedan has those in all the wood grained window trims or garnish’s. Makes for a very nice appearance when installed.

Re: OD power loss

Do you know what gearing your overdrive is, and what rear axle ratio you have? Most Model A’s have the stock 3.78 gearing, and this works well with OD’s that are around 26%. If you happen to have...

Re: Possible Radiator Problem???

I had some overheating issues with my A about 13 years ago, and our Tom Endy suggested I have the radiator rodded. I took it to an older gentlemen who knew how to do it, and he found that over 20...

Re: Tom Endy

Re: Love our new mitchell overdrive

Unless you are trying to squeeze 3 people in the front seat, I’ve never understood why the OD lever is an issue...it’s not in my way, or my passenger. I also have a stock 3.78 rear end and the 26%...

Re: Love our new mitchell overdrive

It took me one fifteen minute ride in a friend’s Model A Roadster to be convinced how nice and practical a Mitchell OD was in a Model A. To me, it is basically like a 4th gear. I also live in S....

Re: 1930 Restored Roadster - eBay

I think Hemmings is a much better way to try and find a decent car, as you can contact the seller, and usually sellers also post lots of photos. I found my very nicely restored 1930 Town Sedan...

Re: Hello from Oregon!

Re: Do you drive your A in the snow or stormy weather?

When I had my first Model, in 1964, used to drive it up to

I was able to find a set of light duty truck chains that fit it...

Re: Brake Adjustment

Is there a name or specification for the “new soft moulded linings”. I have bonded linings from quite a few years ago, along with cast iron drums, but doubt they are soft.

Re: New laminated timing gear tight

For what it’s worth, I had a new laminated timing gear installed about a year ago, and it went right on.....I watched our local Model A mechanic install it.
