Re: VIN number 1930-A

When I registered my car from Oregon, they had put a sticker in the door jamb and the DMV used that. I DID NOT tell them about the frame number.

Re: 4 Blackened Spark Plugs?

For a comp gauge adaptor just order/use the base to a 3X plug. The suppliers carry them for a few dollars each.

Re: The Fordor you have when you're not having a Fordor.

I don’t think it is a funeral coach-to short. I think what they did is stretch a Tudor and added either more legroom or a third seat facing backwards. I have seen it in other cars of our era.

Re: Gurgling

My car gurgled...but it was the cooling system due to a blown head gasket. Just a thought.

Bud Vase bracket

Hi all,


Does anyone know where I can pick up two brackets for some bud vase that I got from the antique store? They are the carnival style glass vases.


Thanks,

Re: New to Ford Model A

Welcome to the club and and very nice truck. Contact Dick Crabtree about the ignition switch assuming it is original. His info is in the sticky at the top of the page.

Re: Was there a Model A "Kampar" ?

I wouldn't put it past someone back then to make a kit up to sell. That is cool though.

Re: What have you found working on your A?

Apparently when some club members pulled the 30 coupe body off of the frame they found a squished dragonfly. The body had never been off the frame. So somehow it got mashed at the factory. I don't...

Re: Which 2 tooth steering make to use?

I bought a core as a back for a rebuild this winter. It might be a Ford box, are they interchangeable with the different columns? One would think the parts will fit both boxes correct?

Re: different points in my distributor

Looks like a modern point set up to me. They are Ford points from 54-75 V8’s if I remember the years right.

Re: heater

There are some out there that go up through the floor boards. Also, they can work VERY well. So whomever sits in the passenger seat will get roasted.

Re: What is the spring and turn knob for on the bottom of the Zenith

It is the cast iron sediment bowl that got moved from the firewall to the carb body. I think that is correct.

Re: '28 sport coupe, would you or not?

Size wise the A should be bigger, more power etc. As long as the top is good you will be good and remember if you are caught in the rain...RainX is your best friend.

Re: Another new Model A owner.
