Re: No start question

Jump the ignition switch. An open switch would do it

A Model A's Thoughts

I was just thinking, when I was born, it was a big deal. I was loved by everyone. The country went wild over the new Ford. Henry couldn't build enough of us. We had a good...

Re: Terriable backfiring

That's right. If you have a make-break condition in the circuit from the coil to the point arm, it will backfire.

Now you have to drive the hell out of it to keep it running good. Those cars want to go. Have fun.

Re: Terriable backfiring

Hook both us. They can't both be bad. It won't hurt anything. Just use some jumpers to ground the loose one and to connect it to the passenger side of the coil.

Re: Terriable backfiring

Make sure the spring is not broken on the point arm. We had one where it would idle, but at speed, the broken spring would let the arm float. Just feel it to make sure there is guts to spring.

Re: Grinding gears

Three of those clutch actuating arms have broken in our club. We are all switching to the new welded arm.

Re: Terriable backfiring

Try a condenser that you know is good, not a new one. A bad new one can really fool you.

Re: Trouble shifting into 2nd or 3rd- BUT.. Unique situation

Probably the ball at the end of the shift rod is out of round. A very common problem. A look-see would not hurt. Not much to disturb. Take pictures or video.

Re: Distributor help!!!

You don’t have to take anything apart. If it won’t just unscrew a bit, then take the distributor out and unscrew it a turn or two. You won’t have to time it again.
But, if you have had this short,...

Re: Distributor help!!!

I assume you had your key on. If so, you probably screwed the cable from the ignition switch in too far and are grounding the lower plate.

Re: Model A rear axle and the Pythagorean theorem

That is the video that is upside down. Somewhere I have it flipped so it is up right. I'll look for it.
On the flip camera, I have a few. I got my last one on ebay for $12. Still a good deal. ...

Re: Wobble in the engine

You said it had a noise. Where did you see the wobble? On a test Stand? Did you run it out of the car?

Re: Broken ring gear

Get and follow those instructions. It is far from simply changing parts. Those things that seal the banjo housing are not just gaskets, they are shims. Good luck.

Take the tower off and fix or clean your detents. Not a hard job.

Re: hard shifting

Don’t discount those detents. We had one where a repro bullet was too long and it and the spring bottomed out before the bullet cleared the notch.

Re: Engine locked up

To free the stuck starter pinion gear, you must turn the engine backwards. Counter clockwise. Best way it put it in third and push rearward. If really stuck, put car in third, push clutch in. Have...
