Re: Scary ... What the hell happened ?

Tighten your tie rod and drag link ends and make sure you have 1/16” toe in. Also check you pitman arm for looseness. It’s tough, but you should adjust your steering gear. Or, just find a club member...

Re: Cannot get the quail back on

It ollks like yourscrews are going in from the bottom. They should go in from the top. Put the screws in loose. Rotate the tabs. Hold them from turning, then tighten them. Good luck.

Re: Dip stick use question

There is only one position for your stick, and that is fully down. You over filled your oil. That is why it was spewing out. Get the level down and always keep the stick down. If you have a shop...

Re: Model A starter clunk then no electrical

Use a jumper cable to make sure the engine is grounded. Most of us have a second ground cable between the frame and bell hsg. Sometimes that engine does not have a good ground.

Re: Model A starter clunk then no electrical

If you have a short in the starter that brings you down to zero volts, something must be getting hot, tap that end of the cable to ground and see if you get a very big spark. You should. If not, it...

Re: The Rear Brake Camshaft Lever...A-2235R-2236L

The Clevis should point inboard toward the brake rods. Should be easy to tell. The rods should line up fairly well. If they are wrong, you will see it. Good luck.

Re: Odd Failure

A tough one I ran into was a bad, or corroded crimp between the cable and the end-cable fitting. It measured 6 volts, but would not pass heavy current. Check those crimps.

Re: Odd Failure

Happens all the time. Just put car in third gear and push it backwards. You will hear a pop and you are all set.

Re: Backfiring, Stalling, Shaking..... all together.

I would start by installing a new manifold gasket. Easy and does not cost much. On the carb connection to the manifold, make sure those two flanges are dead flat. They warp and let air into manifold....

Re: Veggie

When it dies, quickly stick your finger in the carb, by the choke blade. It should be a little wet from gas. If it pops a little as it dies, you may be running out of gas.

Just sit tight, there are a lot of wonderful Model A’ers in your area who will help you. To start with, disconnect the battery and put a charger on it. Good luck.

Re: Locating dimple on timing gear

I know it is easy to turn the engine over using the fan blade, but I think it is the wrong thing to do. The pulley was designed to drive the pump and generator, not the engine. If you break your...

Re: Engine problem - maybe broken cam

Take out the plugs and make sure there is compression in each cyl. You may find one or two with no compression. If so, drop the pan and look for broken pieces. Good luck.

Re: Tire tubes and age.

If a rear tire blows out, you are in big trouble. Don’t trust them.
If you have a model A, you should never have old tires. That means you are not driving it enough. Drive it often and hard. It...

Re: Dies at idle... Help

You have an intake air leak. Check three places. Attachment to engine, attachment to carb, and the manifold itself.

Re: Front axle king pin holes

The forces involved in that king pin wanting to rotate around the wedge pin are very large. It will pound out anything soft in there.

Re: Stuck wrench

Stay with it with the pry bar and anything else you can use. Take your time and "Worry" it off. It will come off.
