Re: Anyone have a battery cap?

Find a NAPA or other user friendly parts store. Usually they have a half ton of trade-in batteries to browse for caps.

Also most scrap metal places take batteries.....

Good luck

A choice could be; run leads through left most end of firewall to switch mounted on side panel at left of and above level of clutch pedal. Easy to reach and out of direct view..

Re: wire wheels

They have an inherent value. You'll do better selling rather than junking them, in my opinion, and most probably be of help to someone who is involved with A's.

Re: Help me identify engine noise?

Consider the distributor shaft may be thirsty. Mine was. Your description of noise sounds similar. Lube took care of it.

Re: Epping NH New England Dragway Auto Swap Meet

Recommend wet ground footwear for tomorrow.
Areas near entrance and parking could be wet following recent rains.
Vendors areas, for the most part, are relatively dry.

Re: Reproduction rear spare tire bracket

Try a welding shop. A welder / fabricator can bring it back to original if you cannot find one.

Re: Water Temperature Gauge

Don't fight the brazing / welding process.
Can be purchased from Mac's (Ecklers) Model A parts catalog for about $20.
Think you could find same in Bratton's or Tam's as well.
