Re: steering wheel on mush roomed threaded shaft


See this video. It worked for me on a really stuck wheel. Use a lot of nylon rope and cover with a big towel in case something let’s go.

Re: 1930 Front brakes

The head of the pin in the center of the rollers should rest, and roll on a track that is rivetted to the back plate. Show us only the back plate.

Re: Model A dies over 45 mph

Sure sounds like your fuel line is going too far into the carb and it is hitting the side of the screen and the only flow you get is through the screen within the diameter of the tube. Just...

Re: Another new Model A owner.

That upper hose looks like it’s flexible. I’ve been looking for one to reduce the stress on the radiator inlet.

Re: Lebaron Bonney has closed????

An upholstery guy just told me that someone bought Lebaron bonney. I forgot the name. Something short like Red Hot or something like that.

Re: Resonant Rattle

Sure sounds like what the guys have already said. Get a rubber mallet and lightly hit the hood props, the radiator to dash rods, those engine pans and the windshield frame, and it should show itself.

Re: Ever have your engine die at a stop light?

Nex time you have the carb off, run a big file across the two mating mounting flanges. File until all is flat on both the carb and the intake flange. A tiny leak here can cause your prob and this is...

The wire from the switch to the dist is shorted to ground.

Be careful of that fan blade and the belt. Not a friendly place to work.

Re: Timing/Spark control arm

Keep in mind that you can pull that rod up toward you to make room for whatever you do. It’s spring loaded at the bottom and will come up a bit.

Re: Flat spot in carburetor

Sounds like restricted fuel flow into the bowl. This happens on the Zenith when the feed tube is pushed in so far that it hits the filter screen in there.

Re: Stupid Question #2: how does an iron frame act as a ground on our cars

The structure is so big there is very little losses. No reason to use silver or copper. It’s just another big wire.

Re: New to the Addiction...

Unless you have a new radiator, your core is plugged. You want to run the belt as loose as you can. Just tight enough to work. Your overheating problem is not a loose belt.

Re: Oil Change Interval

500 if you don’t drive it much. A 1000 or more on long trips over a short time.

Re: The dreaded death wobble

Not by the book,but the way I stop it is by tightening the ends of the drag link and tie rod just where you can get the cotter pin in. Tighten pitman arm, check sector shaft bushings. Adjust gear,...

Re: Where to start?

If the points are open, both sides should be hot. Distributor side goes to the ignition switch on it’s way to the distributor.

Re: hidden radio ideas or just slighty out of sight. wood hide door?

A radio is very hard to hear in an A. At road load you will have to turn the volume way up.

Re: Where to start?

Don’t even think about buying an interior until you get much further along. Get it running like a top, and then think about the cosmetics.

Re: what caused radiator failure?

Where did you find a softer hose? Even with slight movement of the engine, a stiff hose will transmit engine movement to the rad. inlet and put a lot of stress on that solder joint. I have seen...

Tighten things up. The dist should be solid with no movement.

Re: My model A wont go faster than 40-45

Remove your fuel line from carb, and make sure the ferrule is no more than a 1/16 inch from end of tube. If too long, it will hit filter and block a lot of the fuel flow. Easy to check. Good luck.

Re: Motor Suddenly Stuck

Do not push it forward. That will just jam it more or break something. Push the car back and don’t bang on anything.
