Re: Adding Guages

Ruth ' thanks for the reply but the line to the points goes through the ignition switch and it has to be broken and tied directly to the coil which is where I have my problem. This is the same as I...

Re: The model a drag link/pitman arm

I also don't fall into the genius category but I am willing to take a guess If the ball were to the outside would the drag link hit the tire on a sharp left turn? Otherwise it must be a geometry...

Re: Engine Stand

I'd be more concerned about the three wheeled engine stand. I had one fall on me and nearly did a lot of damage to my leg. Only 4 wheeled versions now. Jack

Re: Babbit vs Inserts

I don't know the answer to your question, but I have read the same thing. My model A has run for 90 years with the babbit, why change and invite new types of problems? Jack

Re: 30 Tudor Windlace question.

Pictures would be helpful. What is the sill? Is it the top piece on the door? Jack

Re: 30 Tudor Windlace question.

Bob, Does it go on the door frame in the car top and back or does it all go on the door like the front piece. Jack

I rebuild my differential and now it is time to fill it up. The fill is on the down side of the pumpkin and I don't see how to get oil in it. Any ideas? Thanks Jack

Re: Cotter pins

My question was more toward the nuts and bolts. I have used stainless nuts and bolts where I don't want rust to be seen and wondered if the strength was the same as the standard steel bolts. Jack

Re: Cotter pins

I would like to ask another question on this subject. Are the stainless cotter pins strong enough? I have never known if the stainless bolts are as strong as the grade five bolts for example.

Re: Valve spring issues

People say 60# but what amount of compression does that mean? Is that pushed down 1/4 of an inch or 1/2 or what? Jack

Re: Rear spring shackle

Mine sound just like Floats. You can put a match stick in between the pin and the bushing. My car is a 2-door 1931 with a leaf removed from the rear spring. Better ride??? Thanks for your replies....
