Re: overtight axle nuts

I think larrys40 is on target with a 100lbs. I have read of a way to cut new threads. Old time fix. Clean the threads on the axle of grease and grime. Jack car up so the axle in need will spin...

Re: Generator Belt Installation

I wonder what a person would do with a modern car if the pulley broke, bumper fell off (wire ties?) car got rusty or brakes just wore out. Should we just drive our A’s into oblivion? What ever...

I have been a Model A Tire Dealer for many years and this could be a problem that will not go away. If any black part of another tire touches where a whitewall is present the whitewall some how...

Re: Why does it Lean?

We have corrected the problem if not to severe. This can happen when installing a new spring if not careful. The problem can be caused by all stated above. Put the car on a level surface. Loosen the...

Re: Cleaning Inside The Engine

Re: What am I doing wrong.

To me it sounds like you did a lot wrong. Drums are to be swedged to the hubs. This process involves a proper press and proper anvil installed. The press and anvil must be able to withstand the...

Re: Ongoing Adventures....Wheel Stud replacement...

Good job. Another way would be jack up the proper side of car, release brake shoes, remove hub cap, cotter key, axle nut, steel washer and axle hub gasket. Most all this of you did except for...

Re: How in heck does this thing work? (Nu rex)

Why must you time the engine perfect?

Re: Rough Idle / Smoke out of tailpipe

Just because a machine shop machined the manifold doesn’t mean it was done right or installed right. It shouldn’t leak. There is a slight chance blue smoke coming from the manifold connection or...

Re: Gone 8 miles!!! Questions? Problems.

If you need help, it sounds like you do, why not say where you are. Maybe someone knowable could stop by and help you. It seems you are over your head with problems.

6.1 Xs 14.7 = 90 lbs compression reading.

5.5 Xs 14.7 = 80 lbs compression reading

4.2 Xs 14.7 = 60 lbs compression reading

Or divide the compression reading by 14.7 for the compression...

Re: Autopsy of Broken "B" Engine

I personally would not drive a stock Model A chassis at a high speed, primarily for safety reasons. A destroyed Model A is cheap to replace compared to life and property. That is just me.
