Re: Engine upgrade

No mention of natural thermosyphon water flow that overcomes the cavitation? No need to control the temperature with this system. The natural syphoning process pushes the water to the upper tank...

Re: Ford Model A Camshaft Inspection and Evaluation

Let me start by saying it this way. I have an evergrowing list of nearly 100 different Model-A topics that I wanted to post on a weekly basis as a YouTube content creator. What I have learned after...

Re: Ford Model A Camshaft Inspection and Evaluation

A Model-A does engine not have a fuel pump. The video I watched from you was how to remove the oil pump. The oil pump can be removed without removing the valve cover and/or removing the lower...

Re: Ford Model A Camshaft Inspection and Evaluation

I watched it last night but honestly chose not to respond. Since you felt compelled to bring it back up, I will try to be as kind as possible. My first turn-off was when I read your opening title...

Re: Front Axle Staightening

I'm pretty sure Ken is still in Texas.

Any local shop that has a press can straighten them. It really does not take a very much pressure and so a Harbor Freight press will work. The biggest...

Re: Vehicle vibration

As mentioned, many things contribute to vibrations, and driveline components are also an area that creates just as many issues. Most restorers do not check the driveshaft to be straight. Also, the...

Re: front wedge

Re: Repair of Soft Wood

Contrary to what you may believe, the Quarter Lock Pillar Wood is very much structural wood for the body. It is actually what the quarter panel is screwed to from the backside. Remove that piece of...

Re: Repair of Soft Wood

The product is still around, -just not the re-packaged/re-branded name. The epoxy was a methylmethaccrylate that is used in the repair of horse hooves.

Re: Repair of Soft Wood

Re: "A" with wooden spoke wheels....

Ray, I think this is a unwarranted 'preconceived thought' that Model-Ts are dangerous with wooden wheels. While I agree that wood can rot, most hickory spokes do not if the vehicle is garage kept...

Re: Kick panel with document storage

The DeLuxe open cars used this pocket. Ask your upholstery supplier to add that feature into a set of panels that matches your bodystyle.

Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

Re: Flywheel housing mounting

Marc, some thoughts based on my experiences. The main reasons why flywheel housings crack is because the rear motor mounts have broken which allowed the engine to flex or move in the frame. IMO,...

Re: 31 Roadster wood floor pattern

This is where a drum sander comes in handy. The " Plywood has a nominal thickness ⁄₃₂" which is 0.719", and the ⁄₁₆" Plywood should have a finish size of around 0.687". That means if we remove...

Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

Re: Hard Brake Pedal - Update on Post #9

While you have the front drum off, pay close attention to the brake wedge to see if it is binding on the stud as the brake is depressed. Especially if it has the floater with the pin inside.
