Re: Really old gasoline question

If I leave gas in my mower over the winter, I have trouble starting it in the spring.
I have since learned to drain and runn out during winter storage.

Re: Happiness Is.....

Seeing antique classic cars in your garage is the greatest. These old cars have such class that no modern car can ever measure up to. Todays kids have really missed out.

Re: transmission floor cover

Yes, I mean the frame. Should I use a standard lock washer or a star type conical lock washer...this type was sent to me by southside obsolute parts.

Re: transmission floor cover

I welded the broken piece back in. Looks good. The steady rod screw fits great/flush with the cross member. Do you recommend a thin rubber washer or something between the counter sunk bolt head and...

Re: The Latest Scam

If any deal seems too complicated just stay away....
You are selling an item, an any potential buyer asks for money..stay away. Money should only go one way..from the buyer to the seller.

Re: Model A prices...going which way?

All in all I think the model A is a great antique car at a very cheap price. Someday the prices may skyrocket, when people realize you get a lot of original history that you can drive at rock bottom...

Re: transmission floor cover

That is true. But what would have caused an entire section to be sheared off.
The piece fit perfectly into the section in my car. The piece is thick metal.
Maybe excessive engine vibration?...
