Re: light rod stuck in shaft

You need to be asking on the Early V8 forums with questions and replies. This section is for help with the site not car questions. By the way adding too much solder can cause the float to give wrong...

Re: Wisdom of Stopping Engine by Choking It Out

If you choke it, you are cutting off its air supply.

Re: Heater control valve question

I am going to say no. You could try some of the high temp foil wrapped flex hose like was used in the VW air cooled heating system. The exhaust heaters were not stock and there were many different...

Re: Pickup Cab Wood

This isn't the section to ask car questions, you need to ask on the Model A forum. This section is for help with the site and its functions.

Re: Tire question

You took the whole rear wood wheel (or front for that matter) to a tire store? It's a 1913 which would have nondemountable rim/wheels.
