Re: 6 volt stealth Optima case

I think this plastic box is a bit pricey. I have my Optima battery plugged into an own-made aluminum box. See photo.
The idea of such a package is good for those who like the original look....

Re: Use oil additives or not?

Hi, i use only SAE 30 non-detergend oil (Motorex SAE30, for Prewar-Cars). I think, additives are mainly for the purse of the manufacturer.

Re: special vs standard coupe

What is truly original? Short or long grain? Mine has long grain.
And the Visor is covered with the same material, is that right? My Visor is only painted in black.

Re: John Carelton

Hi, What happened? Because someone was rude to John? It's a shame if he is therefore dropped out. I think the climate here is actually quite relaxed. It is friendly to each other. So it should be.

Re: Don't Use This Product

For years I use a leather balm on beewax base for make the tire shine. Never had a problem, lasts longer than all this chemistry stuff. And it's still only environmental friendly and cheaper.

Re: Air filter fire

The filter paper under the carburetor, I never liked. I have the fine-wire mesh filter installed and commissioned a little fire extinguisher on board.
This gives me a better feeling.

Re: rebuilt shocks

I recommend rebuilt originals. Parts are available from various vendors.
Otherwise, you can also buy new. But the shocks that are not adjustable I do not like that. (A-18016-B)

Re: A Short Driving Season

After last weekend it was very warm (25C) until Thursday, it has now also started snowing again. In Switzerland, Bernese Oberland near Lake Thun at 0600pm. This winter is a never-rich beast.

Re: Shocks: Necessity or luxury?

Hi, i recommend rebuilt Originals. They work great and I think it's definitely better than driving without or with the cheap imitations.

Re: "Restored show car WOW"

Until now, I thought you can not deface a Model A. A little bit disgusting. But when somebody like that, it's ok.

Re: Flathead Teds Reproduction

I agree with TomW.
Good Cast-drums, woven shoes and everything else in order and well-adjusted = excellent braking performance with moderate brake pedal pressure. Nobody needs Floater-Teds...

Re: modern shock conversion 29 tudor A

I see it that way. Drill a hole in the axle, I would not. The modern shock kit A18014 from Snyders has a clamp. Does not require drilling the axle. Is the better way I think.
