Re: Comprehesive howto for brakes?

Assuming your Model A is 100% factory fresh original, then that is correct. However, as others have pointed out, if any one component or more in the brake system has any wear (like the actuators for...

Re: Comprehesive howto for brakes?

Would you care to elaborate? "Every one"? Not sure what set you off or triggered so much hate, but a blanket statement like that about someone trying to be of help to Model A owners deserves a bit...

Re: Ford Model A Camshaft Inspection and Evaluation

And THIS is why I do not hang around the forums anymore. This is very incorrect.


So long.

Re: Tillotson Round Bowl Carb.

I have one of them. It is pot metal, but not very good quality. It does not have an accelerator pump on it. I don't know what that extra adjustment does since I have never ran it on a car. It's...

Speaking of wisdom... There's Bob! One of these days, we should do a collaboration video together.

Re: So, ...how many Model-As can actually do the 'Three S's reliably?

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

Rectify WHAT? I shared a true story of what happened. I'm not complaining or ranting. If you took my post as a complaint or rant, then you must think history books are nothing but rants. I told a...

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

Only had to use AAA one time- On the all-original unrestored fordor. The original babbit splattered on the way home from my dad's house, and had to get it towed home.

I requested a flatbed on the...

Re: 4th of July Celebration during COVID

It attracted thousands of spectators. If you notice, the video is edited. That was done to remove the crowds of spectators where you could make out faces since it would be impossible to get signed...

Re: Manifold Gasket Replacement - New Video by Paul Shinn

Neither the block nor the parts are "warped". You are jumping to a conclusion. Either you did not watch the video, or you skipped the part where I showed the close-up of the casting texture on the...

Re: Manifold Gasket Replacement - New Video by Paul Shinn

ONLY if everything is perfectly flat. My block (and every other I have seen) is not flat.



Even worse, you're trying to make it air tight. Prevents vacuum leaks.

Re: Manifold Gasket Replacement - New Video by Paul Shinn

Thanks for the publicity.

When I discussed using the high temp RTV, I also showed why I do it. See the closeup shot of the engine block surface.

Re: So you have an all original car...OK...

They were removed in the 1950's for some reason. I have a set, though not original to that car, so I could always put them on for judging. But the car is just being preserved as it has been handed...

Re: So you have an all original car...OK...

Valid point. By the way, a few years ago, I posted a portion of a video I shot while riding in Marco's roadster. That car is unreal.

There is quite a debate about what is original going on in the comments under this Model A video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqA28sHrWiA
