Re: Is fuel bubbling normal

According to his response to me, the car has no sediment bowl! Following his other comments, it does have a fuel turn off! I thought all Model A's had a sediment bowl!

Re: Is fuel bubbling normal

Well, your observation could be a problem! Has this plastic fuel filter been installed for a long time or is it new?
How warm is the plastic filter? If the plastic filter is not hot, I would venture...

Re: Electric Wiper Questions

Re: Temp Probe Pipe Leak

I venture on a no pressure system as a model A, you could manage paste on fix, but, if you are like me, there would always be concern about it! Best to get a replacement. :)

Re: No need to go 70mph

70MPH is interesting but so is ability to stop! My mechanical brakes are excellent, yet not much tire on the pavement! I think 45 MPH, maybe 50MPH down hill is sufficient!
