Re: Radius Ball

Since it is spring loaded, my guess is that they did intend to have a little movement upon impact loading. If it was a rigid connection, that would put pretty big shock loads into the bell hsg.

Re: Making an A axle steer easier

The king pins are in tension. The car hangs from the king pins, that are supported by a bearing at the top. Make sure this is what you have

Re: Making an A axle steer easier

Donít change king pins. Just new bushings. Easy.

Re: Old problem but new twist? Coolant loss

Check the torque on your head bolts for a start. If it is going into the engine, no you can’t live with it.

Re: Stop Quick, engine dies

First and easiest thing to do is flatten the surfaces between the carb flange and intake manifold flange. I'm sure you will find them warped a bit. I have fixed several doing just this. All you...

Re: Do I need this?

That is a huge waste of money. Just my opinion.

Re: Update on transmission plug

Just use the kerosene and then fill with new 600 oil. Put a new plug in that fits and seals.

Re: Oil pump rebuild

Be careful with the splash pan removal and install. Very sharp edges. Need a lot of band aids.

Re: High-pitch whistle when accelerating

The book says 45, but that's wrong. Get up to 35 and you should be good.

Re: Stubborn Zenith

Next time you have the carb off, hit the mounting flange a big file and make sure it is flat and not warped a bit. Can’t have any low spots.

Re: engine misses

You say no vacuum leaks. Make sure the manifold gasket is not leaking. Sometimes hard to find.

Re: Timing? Coil? need help!

Don’t tighten that belt too tight. Just enough to run the alternator. The water pump shaft end does not like a tight belt.

Re: Timing? Coil? need help!

If your radiator is old, it is probably plugged. Also, check your head torque.

Re: Fan replacement

What ever you do, be sure the tapers match. If there is any wobble on the shaft before you tighten the nut, don't use it. If you have a nice tight fit and no visible stress, leave the old one on...

Re: Roadster getting harder to start

Be very careful with that stuck dist. That base will break right off and leave you with a mess. Don't pry too hard.
Just put a new manifold gasket on. Easy and cheap.

Re: Roadster getting harder to start

Intake air leak would do it. Suspects are: manifold gasket, Most likely, . Joint between carb and intake manifold, warped surfaces. The manifold itself, unlikely. When right, Model A’s want to...
