Re: Musty Smell

I don't know whether this product is available in the US but I use NilOdor. It is a small spray or an even smaller bottle with a dipper stick that carries a couple of drops. That is enough. a couple...

Re: International Model A Ford Day?

That's coz you guys eradicated the virus. My advice: Don't let anybody in from a country where it still exists.

Re: International Model A Ford Day?

International Model A day won't be happening here. We are locked down and even by then, won't be allowed out for something not essential. That is a pity because our club uses that day to remember...

Re: My first iron OHV casting!

The more I see, the more I like what Tod is doing. I wish I could afford one but it would cost me twice as much as it would you guys.
I am mildly surprised that the combustion chamber is not...

Re: Port & Polish Engine

IMO, porting and polishing a stock Model A engine doesn't make much difference but it does help - a little.
For a real boost to performance, there are the three Cs". Carb, Cam and Compression. A...

Re: Diamond block engine complete

There has been much discussion about that. I am of the opinion that there is really no difference better or worse. I have a diamond B and a diamond A engine and can see no difference. The general...

Re: When is a "Model A" no longer a "Model A"

Here, there is a rule in car judging that says that for a car to be considered a particular make or model, 5 of the 7 major components must be from that model and the others must be period. The 7...

Re: Nu Rex

I run a distributor with points and coil and standard advance mechanism. The compression readings (cold) are all about 110 psi and I have a down draught carb and modified cam. I have found that...

Re: Ford model b waterpumps

And more time for the engine to heat the water in the block!
I believe that within the limits of reason, it doesn't much matter how fast or slow the coolant circulates. Slow circulation will see the...

Re: Striping Tape

I just replaced the ugly bright blue stripes on my Tudor with a single cream line. Very happy with the results! I bought the tape online.
What Lawrie says is a decent option. Use the double tape and...

Re: Distributor gear

If your timing is 180 degrees off, it doesn't matter a rat's @$$. Simply set the engine at TDC on #1 using the pin and reset the timing. That will involve turning the points cam on the shaft to the...

Re: Ford model b waterpumps

OK, I haven't seen a B water pump. So how much coolant do you expect the B pump would move compared to the A?

Re: What Model "A" Book Do You Read the Most?

I've always preferred Person's book to Andrews'. The only down side is the (what I consider) poor index. An added bonus for us is that it deals with RHD cars as well. Andrews seems to be unaware...

Re: Ford model b waterpumps

The B engine is very similar to the A so far as cooling goes. It is interesting to see that ford INCREASED the size of the impeller while some Model A owners try to cure a cooling problem by REDUCING...

Re: Slamming into first gear

Don't use STP. It foams.
Never take your Model A to a dealer for anything. They know nothing about them. A couple of years ago, I bought a 1930 CCPU out of Arizona. The seller had taken it to the...
