Re: Who Remembers Model "A" Parts in the Sears Catalog?

Yes - I remember!! Not much of a selection. I think they were probably made in the USA. This was before the offshore suppliers really got rolling.

Re: 8 volt battery in 6 volt car

Millions of Model A's (and later v-8's) were built and ran very happily on 6 volts. It ain't broke!! It doesn't need to be fixed!! Going to higher voltages masks problems. It doesn't fix them.

Re: What spark plugs are you currently using?

Back in the day (50's-60's), C-4's were considered the standard plug. How times change!! I had never heard of a 3-X until last year when I got back into the Model A world.

Re: Where do I store stuff??

There's a really cool tool box that fits between the front "horns" just in front of the radiator. Looks like it belongs there. That's the good news. The bad news is I don't think they are made...

Re: Is there such a thing as a 6 volt heater?

If you are going to run a hot water heater I suggest that you use a 180 degree thermostat.

Re: Cotter pins

I think that if your car is so perfect that you are worried about the finish of the cotter pins and the shape of their heads you're in pretty good shape!!

Re: Original coils. Can they be rebuilt?

Skip Haney in Florida does V-8 coils. Ask him if he does Model A's!!

Re: Cotter pins

My dad straightened rusty nails and kept old screws - depression mentality. Times have changed. I would not recommend reusing a cotter pin!!

Steel fan

Many years ago my '30 Tudor threw a fan blade. So, I am sensitive to this subject! I recently bought a nice '30 coupe and I was expecting to need to change my fan to a cast aluminum one, but I see it...

Re: Oil Capacities...Which is it?

I agree with Werner. I spent a lot of time at the Ford garage as a kid and that's their method.

Re: What roadside repairs have you made to keep your A going

In 1959 I was driving my '30 Tudor home to MA from VA. I was in the Navy and had just finished school and was being assigned to my first ship. I was roaring (about 50mph) up the Wilbur Cross Highway...
