Re: Insurance for the Pickup

You need to be prepared on how you want to drive the car. Some insurance companies do not want you driving it regularly...only occasionally. At one time I had Grundy, then found out they did not...

Re: Turning the Choke knob

Turning the knob controls the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor. Turning it all the way to the right closes it, and most A’s won’t run with it closed. Every car is a little different....most A’s...

Re: Tire changers, do you use the DIY units?

My Goodyear tires are fine, new just a few years ago. But, unfortunately I had new tubes installed at the same time, and they were junk....everyone of them leaks about 3-4 pounds in a couple of...

Re: Le Baron Bonney, Out of Business?

I quite agree with Brent....the odd’s or feasibility of someone buying what’s left and continuing the operation are slim and none....and Slim just walked out. The real value was the years of...

Re: Insurance

I use AAA, with the only restriction being I can’t use it to work regularly. I did have Grundy several years ago, and later found out they did not approve of me using the Model A regularly for going...

Re: Check your fan blades

I am assuming that must have been an original fan blade. It is known that those will almost certainly fail over time, so folks are constantly warned about them, and to replace them with a new, solid...

Re: cup shaped interior washers and screw purpose?

Re: OD power loss

Do you know what gearing your overdrive is, and what rear axle ratio you have? Most Model A’s have the stock 3.78 gearing, and this works well with OD’s that are around 26%. If you happen to have...

Re: Love our new mitchell overdrive

Unless you are trying to squeeze 3 people in the front seat, I’ve never understood why the OD lever is an issue...it’s not in my way, or my passenger. I also have a stock 3.78 rear end and the 26%...

Re: Love our new mitchell overdrive

It took me one fifteen minute ride in a friend’s Model A Roadster to be convinced how nice and practical a Mitchell OD was in a Model A. To me, it is basically like a 4th gear. I also live in S....
