Re: Rear brakes

To the OP, are you saying front brakes or rear brakes? Or both? If it's the rear brakes, check your operating wedge isn't turned 180 degrees in the wrong direction.

Re: Engine and frame numbers

Dean, not many Model A cars and trucks have matching numbers. It was easier back in the day and much faster to just have the engine replaced with a rebuilt/reconditioned engine ready to go.

Top speed for me without an overdrive was 45-50. With my overdrive I usually go between 57-58, that is GPS claims my speed as.

Re: New laminated timing gear tight

Before you put that head back on take it to a reputable machine shop and have it checked to be sure it is flat. Taking a few thousands or more won't hurt it. If you order your head gasket from...

Re: seat spring applications

I can't but Snyder's probably can, they make them.
https://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/

I'd find out where they were bought from and go from there.

Re: Diff leaking around the bolts

Re: Diff leaking around the bolts

I'm with J Franklin on what he suggested. 1 bolt at a time. Take the bottom bolts out to let most of the oil drain from there plus the drain plug. Jack one side up to tilt the center to get more...

Re: Headers and a manifold heater on a 31?

I haven't yet seen cast or tube headers that will work with a heater box. How does your box mount?

Re: Head Gasket for the 6:1 Iron head

The most recent Best gasket I bought for a Model A was a 509G. The only difference is the 2 small holes between cylinders 2 & 3. They still have the 573G, and it is for the Model B block. Notice...

Re: Stuck head

Dave I believe a lot of guys use old spark plugs by breaking out the center electrode and porcelin. Get a long bolt and run it up through them and then through the plate.

Re: 28 rad shroud

I looked for nearly 2 years for an original fan shroud. Got a very good deal on it and installed it. Cools better in stop and go traffic and waiting at traffic lights.

Re: Re-cored radiator and still loosing colant

Make sure you have a baffle in the top of the radiator, if you have one you won't be able to see the top of the tubes. Usually the water to the bottom of the baffle is adequate.
