Re: Scary ... What the hell happened ?

When I google Womelsdorf, PA, it appears that you live in a pretty small town, but that you are within driving distance from some larger places like Philly. I highly recommend you hook up with...

Re: Scary ... What the hell happened ?

Its surprising you haven't had it before. I mostly eliminated mine by getting rid of the aftermarket rubber"tennis" ball on the radius rod and replacing it with the stock parts, and by tightening...

Re: Model A Improvements

We have come to appreciate the creature comforts, the safety and the performance of new cars. It is so tempting to "improve" the ride for what ever seems to be the annoying features of the 90 year...

Re: Cannot get the quail back on

On mine, I just have to fiddle with it until it goes. You are usually pressing against the rubber O-ring and if it is a good O-ring, it needs some hand pressure to get it compressed enough to go...

Re: Generator output

You don't want to adjust the third brush until you have checked all the connections. With any bad connection in the battery and charging circuit, the resistance increases which causes the generator...

Re: Should I pass on this A? Or would I miss out on something?

If you want to make it run and leave the rest as-is, that is probably ok. However, if you want to fix it up, you will be in it for the long haul, both for time and money. They sky is the limit. ...

Re: Flamethrower 6v coil too much power ?

Sounds like Sychro's fixes are good pointers. Otherwise, you start with a better spark and have a misfire from the cross-arcing.

Re: Early 29 vs Late 29 Radiator Design?

I would be willing to bet that just about any change other than outer style changes were done either to:

(a) Changes to fix a known bug from the original design
(b) Changes to make the part and...

Roof trim on a 29 Tudor

This is a question that I have not gotten many concrete answers on so I keep asking around. I have put new top material on the 29 Tudor and stretched it nice and tight.

Next step is the front and...

Re: Non-Authentic Paint Schemes

My wife has been a real partner with me on this '29 Tudor project. We have both wanted a Model A project car for forty years! And, purely as a hobby and to take it out on evening drags, daytime...

Re: Not model A related (entirely) Kindig-it-Design

I enjoy the shows too. It is interesting to see that some things that in reality take a whole day to do are done in about 2 minutes worth of film time on the shows. I like the Garage Squad, but I...

Not model A related (entirely) Kindig-it-Design

I am on vacation visiting family in Salt Lake City. I have watched Bitchin' Rides occasionally on Motor Trend TV, and I did the one-hour tour of Kindig's shop today. Wow, it really must be nice to...

Re: Non-Authentic Paint Schemes

If changing colors is the worst one could do then I am in deep doo doo. Work in progress and now doing reassembly.

Re: Horn power wiring

14 would be overkill but would do you well. Its just that if the rest of the wiring in the harness is 16, that will be the limiting factor. If you connect a firehose at the end of a garden hose, then...

Re: Rear Fender Welt

I recently did mine with a series of V cuts to clear the bolts and to account for the curvature of the fenders. I lucked out and the fenders, when they were not tightened down, were loose enough...

Re: I think I killed my starter

Hooking the battery up to the copper post and to the case of the starter is correct, but in order to get it to run, you have to push (hard) on the shaft that your foot would normally push to activate...

Re: I think I killed my starter

In picture #4 of the starter mounting hole, there seems to be something in there in about the 4 O'Clock position. I can't make it out.

If you put jumper cables on the starter and push the...

Re: Insuring '28 coupe

I think you'll find that Hagerty and Grundy are the two names that come up most often. I have Grundy.
