Re: Interesting read in Hemmings about restoration costs.

That is true.....and PPG and Dupont did not have a good color match for the Elkpoint Green. The Kewaunee green was pretty close, but the codes were not correct for Elkpoint.

Re: Model A backfire, can't move

Before you jump in replacing parts, with either a test light or volt meter, start seeing where you have power. With the key off, you should have power both sides of the coil. With the key on, you...

Re: Steering wheel orientation.

The steering wheel makes a X vs a +. If that makes any sense. When you are driving straight, the steering wheel spoke does not block the speedometer.

Re: Rewiring . . . What would you do different?

I think I would just buy a wiring harness from one of the suppliers and be done with it. I have never had a problem with a stock wiring harness. They are correct the right color and go to the right...

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

I would probably check for a nice steady, consistent flow of fuel to the carburetor. Try opening up the GAV on the carburetor and see if that picks up speed. May be running to lean on that.

Re: Condenser Replacement

I think most of the main suppliers carry that condenser. Brattons main condenser says burn proof in the description. I think the others carry that one also.
