Re: Clutch drive train, what's going on here?

But the opposite wheel will go backwards at the same speed. That's how it has been for a bit over 100 years.

Re: Mystery Missfire

This is a model A. There isn't anything that hasen't been done. Obviously it did not have adjustable lifters. Think I might try the same. File might not touch it due to hardness, got nothing to loose...

Re: Pickup Rear Bumpers

I think all will be too short. The bed hangs out further than the body so somehow you have to fab an extension. Towing is also a reason to have to fabicate since side to side flexing will be extreme....

Re: Dies at idle... Help

What you have now is a "divide and verify " with tests. Your assumption fuel or ignition is a good start. How can you see the floatbowl and know that the fuel level is being maintained with adequate...

Re: Oil change after head gasket job?

Any crud getting loose doing the head would all be above the rings. Not going to go past the rings and into the pan. At least not until running quite a while and compromising said rings and cylinder...

Re: Mystery Missfire

The needle bouncing steadily leans toward tight lash. Erratic bounce, sticking guide, weak or broken spring. Sloppy stem clearance and washed out cam lobe might be a steady but low reading....

Re: Brake adjust now no spark

You say "I think the brakes need to be redone". May be someone's looking out for you.

Re: Mystery Missfire

Swap #1 and #4 plugs then do the balance test once more. The problem might move with the plug. If your compression tester uses a hose, remove the schrader and idle the engine. Will be running on 3...

Re: Battery Acid

Solutions should be already diluted. Remove the battery from the support and have it at a comfortable work height. Best to have windows and doors open for ventilation. wear eye protection.

Re: Body Blocks

There had to be some reason. Best option, assume that they were only sold as a kit then estimate / guess what sounds good. I have wondered how available parts were for the model A five years after or...

Re: Two piece crank shaft pulley

I tore down 1 engine that had a die cast, pot metal, 2 piece dog coupling pulley. The rope seal ate into the inner sleeve about 3/16". Total junk.

Re: Timing puzzle

Re: Kerosene

One thing your fighting is that often the crud in the bottom is mixed with water from condensation. this makes it less dissolveable with any petroleum product. That's what short trip driving does.

Re: Tool for cleaning out water jackets-head off

Good idea to break up the trash at the rear of the block but this has no direct relation to exhaust in the cooling system. If you can't find a crack or an issue with the head gasket you need to...

Re: Roadster to Roadster pickup

Subrails tend to rust horribly at the Right rear from acids in the exhaust . Cut away and rest the bed on the chassis frame if it looks shakey, same as pickups.

In either case the shop likely would remove the babbitt as oven cleaning or hot tank processes would leave the white metal as a contaminate and not a good one. Oven cleaning is a good process but the...

Re: Front brake repair on 31

Shackles should be way clear of the axle, especially with no car and engine weight on the axle. With a good spring and bushings the shackle will try to almost parallel to the ground if supported on...

Re: GAV adjustment - how to

There should be no effect at idle. Just as the butterfky opens it will be part of the mid range and high speed so it is changed at driving speeds. Screw it in and there will be less additional fuel=...
