Re: Brake Light Switch

OK, now I think I have it. The reson I haven't heard of them is they are US based.

Re: Rewinding Horn Field Coils

Thanks for that article, Tom. I have converted my Model As to 12 volts and getting the horn to sound right is the only downside, IMO.
On the same theme, I have a horn with a faulty segement on the...

Re: U Joint Quality

So it's a very different scene from here. A serviceable uni joint is pretty rare.
As I've said before, you guys don't know how good you've got it.

Re: Brake Light Switch

Here's another thing the vendors don't have - any of them. The light switch you guys use on the '28 and 9 cars - the ones that attach to the side of the gearbox don't fit a RHD car. What was used...

Re: U Joint Quality

Not trying to pick a fight here but just because something is US made doesn't mean it's high quality and just because something is "foriegn" made doesn't mean it is not.
The US has about 5% of the...

Re: Swapping to collapsible steering column?

I'll see what I can do. I don't own a mobile phone so I'll have to get someone else to take the pictures but down loading and up loading them has me all turned around!!!

Re: water pump end play how to stop?

It is most likely just too much end play in the shaft. Try one of these https://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/ProductDetail/A-8511-C_PUMP-THRUST-COLLAR-WASHER?fromCategory=Products/model-a/water-pump

Re: Swapping to collapsible steering column?

Yours is a sensible question if you are going to fit only lap belts. I regard those as next to useless for the driver but I have them in my car for the passengers because they don't have to worry...

Re: That "Opportunity Knocks" Engine

I've heard of dud blocks being substituted for good ones by engine rebuilders. I insist in the same engine back again. I note the number and make sure the rebuilder knows I have the number. I also...

Re: Heater

And blow hot air straight onto the driver's crotch!.
BTW, the waffle manifold is impossible if you want to retain manual ignition timing.

Re: air bubbles in rad water.

I also believe in that. When I fit a new head gasket, I start and let the engine idle till it is up to operating temp, then turn it off. Once it is completely cool again, I retorque the nuts. I...

Re: 6 Volt Bermuda Bell on 12 Volt Car

If you only usually blow a 20 amp fuse but not always, it is obvious to me that the solenoid draws about 20 amps It takes a resistance of 0.6 of an ohm to get that (R=V/I or 0.6=12/20) meaning that...

Re: 1930 Model A Tool box

I made my own. They are not difficult but if you think your skills are not up to it, I'd be disappointed if there was nobody prepared to help.

Re: Clutch restauration, some questions

If they are built, they can be rebuilt. It might take equipment knowledge and patience that not all of us have but they are rebuilt everyday for trucks etc.

Re: How Many Model A's are left ?

This thread so far has reminded me of one of my late father's favourite lines. "If all the economists in the world were laid end to end, they still wouldn't reach .... a conclusion!"
