Re: Early Mallory - Manual Advance

Thanks Updraught. That's the same one, but the ID plate is in better shape. Here's a couple pics of mine. It looks like it's in decent enough shape to run, but the cap has a crack in it...

Early Mallory - Manual Advance

Hi all, this Mallory is in my Dad's parts and I'm looking for any history. It is dual points and manual spark advance. I thought all the early Mallory distributors had a Y designation. This one is...

Re: need a little help

Hi there,

Model A's didn't originally have an oil filter. There are aftermarket kits available to add one, but many people don't bother.

If the motometer is in working order, you should be able...

Re: Clutch issues...

Yeah, I went down to Bert's yesterday and picked up a pressure plate, disc and throw out bearing for under $200, so it might not be worth it to have the old parts fixed. I'll probably keep them as...

Re: Clutch issues...

Sorry, should've just posted the pictures in this thread.

The center hub of the clutch disc came apart and the pressure plate fingers were contacting the disc

Clutch issues... - UPDATE

Hi all,

I posted a couple weeks ago about clutch issues on my fordor and I thought you'd find it interesting to see what I found.

If you look at the pictures, you can see that the center hub of...

Re: knocking at start up again

It doesn't "catch", but the pin just falls in to the dimple every time it goes by. It will still help to eliminate the cam walking back and forth.

Re: knocking at start up again

One other thought before dropping the pan. I had what sounded like a bearing knock, but turned out to be the cam walking forward and backward due to a worn spring and plunger inside the timing cover....

Re: Clutch issues...

That's correct. The car already has a lightened flywheel with a V8 clutch, so I will stick with that setup.

Re: Clutch issues...

That is very possible. I'm planning to replace the throw out bearing while I'm in there, either way. I will definitely share some pictures when I tear it down.

Re: Clutch issues...

Yeah, I think the pressure plate is done for. Looks like I'll be dropping the rear end and transmission and replacing the clutch. Thanks all for the input!

Re: Clutch issues...

Well, I pulled the floorboards and removed the inspection plate. The car has the three finger V8 pressure plate. It looks like the adjusters on each finger have worn down where they contact the...

Re: what makes a A'er

My first ride in a Model A was at 2 weeks old in the 30 Deluxe Coupe that my Grandpa and my Dad restored in 1971. I've been working on Model A's, driving and participating with my local chapter ever...

Re: Clutch issues...

I'd say that it's definitely more free travel than before, though it changed very slowly. It probably went from a couple inches to 3-4 inches.

Re: Clutch issues...

Thanks Marshall, I will look at that. Though I would think that it would make the adjustment go the opposite direction from where it went. i.e. not disengaging enough, rather than too much.

Clutch issues...

Hi all,

I was driving my 29 Fordor yesterday and had an interesting issue. I noticed that as the clutch pedal was fully depressed, it seemed like it was still grabbing and not fully disengaged and...

Re: Water in Crankcase

I had this exact problem. It ended up being a head gasket leak due to a slightly warped head. I had the head planed and put a new head gasket on. The water must have been making its' way past the...

Re: Brake light wiring

Thanks for all the ideas. I tried using a jumper to ground the body and the socket and it didn't really make any difference. The sockets look clean and I pulled the light body off of the bracket...

Brake light wiring

Hey everyone,

I am trying to figure out why one brake light would be very bright, as it should be and the other light is very dim, only barely lighting the filament. Any thoughts?

Re: Rear Main Cap Opinons

Thank you to everyone for your insights. After thinking it over and talking to a friend who does inserts, I've decided to just convert to insert bearings and be confident in the bottom end. Thanks...

Re: Rear Main Cap Opinons

I considered this, but was concerned because the cracks in the babbitt extend about halfway back in the bearing surface. Do you think this would hang together if I just remove the front thrust...

Re: Rear Main Cap Opinons

As far as I can tell, the top half of the bearing looks to be intact. Of course it's difficult to see too well, but the upper thrust surface appears to be ok.
