Re: GPS speedo

I also check my 31 speedo against my gps phone and both are the same. Anywhere from 0-65 MPH they are sometimes 1 MPH off.

Re: Max Speed of a Model A in Stock Form

Yes, you would benefit greatly by adding a 6.1 to just an overdrive. Hills become much easier to navigate.

Re: Highest Reliable Compression Ratio

I have Snyders 6.1 with new studs, babbitts, stock oiling. No issues other than less advance is needed.

I have done about 5k per year for the last 2 years and would never go back to a stock head.

Re: Best Radial Tires

It is defiantly worth the money to switch. The car rides better and tracks way better.

I have been using Cokers 19" ww radials for a few years.

Re: 1931 Model A Deluxe Roadster

You should move this to the swap meet for sale section.

With a Pinto engine and the condition of the paint and chrome don't expect too much of an offer.

Re: tube question

Instead of talc I found that spaying water mixed with dish detergent and a bag works best.

I then set the tire changer platform on 4 milk crates and then use 3 HF tire changers.

Re: Radiator using water verse antifreeze

A 50/50 mix will be much better for your engine that just straight water.
