Re: Cotter pins

Well for me, my car is not perfect nor am I worried about the finish of the cotter pins. I was asking a question so I could answer a question posed to me. And in the process I learned something....

Re: What revs at 60MPH

According to Lucas Classic Tires a 28/29 tire (4.40/4.50-21) is a " taller than a 30/31 tire (4.75/5.00-19). I don't think you would see much impact.

Re: What revs at 60MPH

What rear end ratio are you running? With stock gearing (3.78's), at 67 your engine would be spinning ~3000 RPM (on paper). More in real life.



That is similar to what I have heard... At 50 MPH...

Re: What revs at 60MPH

On paper it calc out to ~2600 RPM at 60 MPH with the stock 3.78 rear gear and 4.75/5.00 x 19 tires.

I don't feel comfortable driving that fast in a Model A anyway. 45-50 is where I (and my Town...

Cotter pins

A question was posed to me and I have no idea what the answer might be.

Did Ford use galvanized cotter pins back when or did he save money and use carbon steel cotter pins?

Thanks.

Re: Sagging Front Spring.

I have a hydraulic press that I used to remove and install the bushings in my spring perches (no doubt overkill). You could probably press them in with a large vice or 'C' clamp. The spring comes...

Re: Sagging Front Spring.

Thanks Guys. I pulled the old spring and ordered new shackles and a USA made spring. I installed new bushings in the spring perches also.

Re: Sagging Front Spring.

alexiskai, Yes looking at spring and shackles it clears the axle OK but I can see where the spring came into contact with the spring perch. At rest, the shackles are at ~70, just short of being...

Re: Logolites opinions

Can I assume since the cannot be focused they tend to blind oncoming traffic?

Sagging Front Spring.

My front spring bottoms out when I go over a bump. I think my spring is getting weak and sagging (or maybe I broke a leaf).

In Les Andrew's 'Red Book' it states "measure the front end height from...

Re: Suspicious Threads?

1929, I wasn't referring to your comments... I was referring to some of the comments by others on various threads started by M2M.

Re: Suspicious Threads?

M2M, I enjoy your pictures. Not so much the snarky responses from some of the other members.

Some of the pictures take a moment to open, be patient. No need to use a link.

Re: No comment

There was a thread a while back on this car. Isn't it used at the University of Mississippi football games? I couldn't find it in a search.

Re: Rear main leak to clutch

When my rear main was leaking the flywheel seemed to 'fling' the oil out where it would collect on the inside of the bell housing then run out the bottom. never got to the clutch.

Re: No air filter . . .

Snyder's and maybe others (I have not checked) sell new Zenith ! carbs that are air balanced. The one on my car works great. In fact the engine runs a little on the lean side with a K&N filter.

Re: No air filter . . .

Since Ford saw the need for an air filter on the '32 up V-8 didn't the Model B 4 cylinder get one as well?

Re: Houdaille Shock Problem

I went with Stipe Shocks and had to wait ~6 months to receive them. But I am glad I waited. No problems for the last 4 years. I noticed they are back ordered now. (again)...
