Re: Parts from suppliers

I ordered from Bratton's, too. 2nd day delivery, but I live in MD. I was pleased that shipping was only $7.99 rather than the flat rate price provided. I just had carb parts, so they fit in an...

Re: Wd-40

I saw that same test. We always used Liquid Wrench 40 years ago. When I saw this test, it made me reconsider.


I think we used WD-40 in my son's potato cannon.

Re: Howell's Sheeeet Metal Scam

I bought a T trunk panel from them. Took months to arrive, but it finally did. They charged my cc at the time I ordered, probably from their web site. The panel was on sale, too, so not sure what...

Were Jaxon rims available for Model Ts?

My 24 T coupe has Jaxon rims and lugs on it. Some folks have suggested that maybe my car has Chevrolet wheels and rims on it, as Jaxon rims were available for Chevys. It's important to me because I...

Re: Conventional oil and Synthetic oil

I use Mobil 1 in my Model A's, like I use in everything I have. Probably an unnecessary expense, but it's a better oil, so why not?

Re: A Interesting 1934 Ford Brochure I Found over 20 years Ago

Henry Ford apparently thought hot air heaters were better than hot water heaters, so he continued to develop them and make them available for his cars.

Re: 1933 essex terraplane. John Dillinger's favorite car

Re: Zenith Carb Float Valves

FWIW, I had bad luck with Viton tipped valves. I wasn't patient enough to keep trying them until I found one that worked. 66% failure rate isn't very good.

Re: Model "A" Cars vs. Their Successors

Cars these days are pretty bulletproof. My 2013 Focus has over 90K miles and has only needed a brake job and tires. It is a manual transmission. I understand the automatics in those cars have been...
