Re: Wiper Motor Anyone???

Could try calling Berts in Colorado. They sell a lot of used/original parts but am not sure if they would have a 6V wiper motor.

Re: Oil - again

Zinc is not needed after break in on the A motor, zinc was added later due to higher engine speeds requiring stiffer valve springs to prevent valve float.

Re: Preferred Vendor for parts?

I like Berts a lot , usually ship same or next day. Best to call and ask for delivery times on rebuilts (Carbs, Generators, etc), sometimes they are backlogged.

Re: 180 Degree Thermostat "Hunting"

Probably OK as is. Could also try drilling a 3rd 1/8 inch bypass hole in the thermostat, sometimes lessens the amount of "hunting".


Also make sure the Thermostat is located on the end of the...
