Re: Repop Ammeter Junk

I didn't post their response to Bad Mouth Stewart Warner. I asked if they had ever considered making a 1⅝" gauge to fit the Model A. They gave an honest answer and I accept that. They aren't in...

Re: Repop Ammeter Junk

Re: Please help school me on my model A

Since you have a V-8 you might want to post in the Early V8 (1932-53) Section of Ford Barn for more info also. Most members here deal more with the 4 holer.

Re: Fan Belt Squeak

Yes!! I had forgotten all about Door Ease! They always had Door Ease around the service station I worked at when I was a teenager. We kept it out in the cash boxes on the islands so we could put it...

Re: not your average coupe

Bummer. Long way from home to have that happen. I was hoping to see a video of that bad Boy... and some pictures of your supercharged Model A engine.

Best of luck in the future.

Re: luggage rack question.

I compromised on my luggage rack. I replaced all the hardware with stainless fasteners. Now all I have to polish is the rack itself. I was a real chore trying to keep all the nuts and washers from...

Re: not your average coupe

Quickchange, you mention an Eaton Blower. Is it similar to the Eaton blower that was on the 3.8 Super Coupe T-Bird? Thanks.

Re: not your average coupe

Awesome car. Does the windshield visor catch much wind at speed? I have seen "vented" visors on other Hot Rods.

Good luck on your Speed Runs.

I'm not a fan of the looks of turn signal controls inside or the 'modern' looking rectangle lights outside.

Re: no brake lights
