Re: Misfire and backfire when hot

Big Hammer - how odd some cars don't like 3X and ethanol fuel. I still wonder if the fuel is more that 10% and it boiles at a lower temperature.

Re: Jackson III 2nd Condenser -How

I just tried Jackson's parallel condenser quick fix.
Loosen the passenger side terminal on the coil and slide the pigtail terminal under the nut and tighten it. Use a wire with two alligator clips,...

Re: Misfire and backfire when hot

OK - We got it now.
Changed the new 3X plugs for the old Autolite 3076 plugs with 18,000 miles on them and it runs great. No missing, no popping, just smooth! Well smooth for an "A".
Thank you all...

Re: Misfire and backfire when hot

Another step in the right direction - To explain, Just before this all happened the temp was about 1/8 inch showing on the motometer. Then for no reason it began to run about 1/3 the way up the...

Re: Misfire and backfire when hot

Hi Guys,
Update - Just now tried Jackson's trick with a second condenser hanging off the coil with a pigtail to ground and it did seam to help a bit. The engine had to get a little over the halfway...

Re: Misfire and backfire when hot

OK some more things I tried tonight.
Added one ounce of ATF fluid to about 1/3 tank of fuel, put the old dist cap and rotor back on and ran it with out the gas gap.
Pretty much the same results....

Re: Misfire and backfire when hot

Hi all,
Manifold has always had gland rings and was machined when new and I checked the coil polarity tonight and it is correct.
Will check the gas cap though - it looks clean but could be clogged...

I recently had all the valves out to remove a lot of carbon from the under side of the valves, new head gasket, new intake/exhaust gasket.
GAV open little more than 1/4 turn - then when it starts to...

Misfire and backfire when hot

Hello all,
When my Tudor gets hot it starts to backfire and misfire so it will barely move.
This has been getting worse for a couple years. I have changed carburetors and distributors, coil,...

Re: High carbon on valves

Daren007, I can answer you question better now since cleaning the engine.
The intake ports had wet carbon and the exhaust ports had dry carbon.

Re: High carbon on valves

Daren007 - the best way i can describe the carbon is sticky, maybe that is wet as you ask.

Re: Trailering tips for protection

I don't think it's a precise science but they worked very well today.
Model A on a U-Haul trailer over 500 miles and there was no noticeable "extra" pressure required for braking. Works like a charm...

Re: Trailering tips for protection

Thank you Guys.
Number 9 covered all the glass and that's what i'm going to do.
Also engine to the front with proper tongue weight and the u-Haul trailer has serge brakes.
It will be an adventure!

Re: Engine Oil Analysis

The only analysis I've done is looking in the bottom on the drain pan to find pieces of timing gear.

Trailering tips for protection

Afternoon Gents,

Re: Rear End Pressure

Duke 36 and Davew, thanks for the pix of the vents.
They make sense as I really think the extra pressure on the seals can be eliminated.

Re: Rear End Pressure

Bill,
This is the first time I've heard that the later axle housings have vents.
Where are the vents located and what do they look like. A nipple and a hose or what ??
Thanks for your help.

Re: Rear End Pressure

I like the idea of drilling one of the upper banjo bolts and attaching a tube to it. Wouldn't like to drill a housing but I can always replace a bolt.
Thank you gents.

Re: Rear End Pressure

I just replaced the STP lube with SWPCO #201 and it is thinner than the 85-140. The temp difference was about 20-25 degrees higher than ambient. By the time I changed the battery in the temp gun...

I was using STP 85-140 weight lube

Rebuilt the rear-end last year and added a Mitchell overdrive.
