Re: "Rainmaker" Ron's Legacy

I've been away from the 'Barn' for a few years doing other things and recently stoked my interest in the A's

Re: New owner of 1929 model A

I'd only pull the choke out for one or two chugs or you'll be flooding that puppy and never get it going. Lightly file or sand the points to make sure crud hasn't built up.

Re: model a original head

If the starter is still there just hook some jumper cables to your car battery and the starter. 12 volts won't hurt the A starter.

Re: Stainless Radiator Shell Polishing Hints and Experiences Request

Re: Anti Rattler Pics

OK. What is correct? The service bulletins Larry posted show the springs on either side of the mounting bracket...one on the nut side and the other on the bolt head side, NOT both on one side....

Re: Possible First Model A

I'm sure most if not all the wood will need replacing-that's chassis wood, door wood,
top and roof wood. That's about 3 times what you'd be paying for whats left of this car just to BUY the wood...

Willie, Try someone's used lawn mower oil. Mine is usually black as coal when I get around to changing it.

Re: What is your A doing for Memorial Day?

Today the coupe chassis got a new parking place in my "garage of doom". Now I can just roll it in and out as needed instead of zig zaging it in sideways. Took me all day but worth the effort. Yeah, I...

Re: Distributor Set Screw

Use a flat screwdriver that fits tight. Then place vice grip over the screw crimping down on the flat part of the driver. This should help prevent the ears from breaking off.

Re: Motor Stuck?

Can you turn it over by hand? (with the hand crank) If so, you may have a starter problem. You may have to pull the starter to check further.
