Re: Mystery missfire .

As its idling, lift the #4 spark plug strap enough to watch the spark. Make sure its steady and hot. If the cylinder fires with the strap lifted then you likely have a plug issue.

Re: mud coming out of my engine???????????

Mud???? Where is it coming from? What makes you call it mud? You need to give details and preferably pics or all you're going to get is a bunch of wild guesses which are useless.

Re: Carpet

Re: 1930 Roadster on ebay. Thoughts please.

One other thing to consider when buying a model A. Will you fit? I am 6' 4" and it is very uncomfortable and even dangerous to drive some models. My Fordor, with some seat and shifter mods is very...

Re: Ammeter Flops to Full Discharge When Key On

Put an inline ammeter in the circuit and take an actual reading. So many of the replacement ammeters over the years have been junk. Even a good one gives a very general idea only.

Re: Engine Knock at 2000 RPM

Aluminum timing gear can make a metallic rattle although I think it most likely starts at lower rpm. Is a motor mount loose or front pulley touching? Take a prybar to lift engine while running.

Re: Keyed 6 volt source

If you have an original cutout, you can tie to the input side. It'll only have power when the car is running. Depending on what you plan to use the power for, filtering and conditioning may be a good...

Re: Fuel pressure at the carburetor?

It's not about the weight of the volume of the tank, it's about the weight of the column of fuel. A water tower with water level at 100 feet will have the same pressure if it hold 100 gallons or 1...

Re: Alternator over charges

You need to do a voltage check in order to help us troubleshoot the issue. Do the check directly on the battery and another right at the alternator. Get back with the data.

Re: 12v amps gauge

Use nichrome wire to make an ammeter shunt. A good original ammeter is something you don't want to ruin. Size the shunt for the deflection you want, use an inline ammeter to give you the calibration...

Re: Camo woodburner

Reminds me of some of the restored army jeeps I see. Base/clear olive drab...huh? Or the restored tractors with the same. Looks great but a "RESTORATION" it is not.

Re: 12v amps gauge

Yes, although if your going to run a high current alternator you may want a shunt across the ammeter to reduce its throw. Overdeflection will kill the ammeter. An original ammeter is not something...

Re: Dificulty starting model A

Lift a spark plugs strap a good quarter inch above a spark plugs then turn over engine, should be a nice hot and regular snap. Point gap that has closed up can make weak hot starting.

Re: Clutch won't disengage

As Jackson mentioned, the clutch arm can crack. It will appear to be moving the clutch as normal but won't have enough throw.

Re: 1931 model a running rough.

LISTEN TO THIS ADVICE! Don't start throwing parts at it. You'll soon have more troubles. If you haven't checked the point gap, that will do as you've described.

Re: Spark Question

Don't start replacing anything until you identify where the problem is. Use a voltmeter on the point arm. Should be battery voltage when open, 0V when closed. This is with the ignition switch ON....
