Re: Tudor pronunciation

I believe there was a thread on this but I forgot about it. Tudor and Fordor are pronounced just as they sound like two-door and four-door. Fordor got its name as a play on words from Ford, but I do...

Re: Oil for model a+ t

Antique Engine Rebuilding near me says no Zinc. Zinc only need for steel camshafts, Model A has cast iron camshaft. Furthermore, a majority of people use no zinc and everything is fine.

Re: Stubborn Conpensator Jet Removal

Tried heat before but didn't work as it didn't come off and the screw head broke in two! Usually heat does the trick but this one is quite stubborn.

Re: What have you found working on your A?

I found a lot of sand toward the back of the curtain pan in my Roadster. Not sure if it is media sand or beach sand as my car was from Florida.
