Re: So what is an AR?

Did Henry designate the early 28's as AR because of his earlier model A in the early 1900's?

Re: Starts then stops

The last time I experienced a similar issue was the condensor went bad. It would start for a few seconds then die right away.

Re: 31 coupe will not go over 40 mph

Check the condition of your spark plugs as well. If any are wet or showing signs of poor performance, they could also be a cause of unburnt fuel going out to the exhaust and running on less than 4...

Re: Sudden rough running, out of ideas

When you check the distributor cap carbon point, don't forget to check the gap on the rotor itself and make sure there's no slop in the distributor shaft. If those are set to wrong gap or the shaft...

Re: Le Baron Bonney, Out of Business?

Would be nice to see someone pick up the company but as Brent mentions, you need the skillset, the equipment, etc. It may also be the volume of orders required to keep the business feasible from a...

Re: 29 Tudor hood alignment

Just a guess, but would you happen to have too much rubber (or other insulator) under the rad supports at the front. It looks like the rad might be sitting a little too high in comparison to the cowl...

Re: What strange comments or questions have you heard about your Model A

I had a car pull up beside me at a stoplight when the young lady inside asked if it was an automatic.

Re: Terriable backfiring

If the head is straight and not the issue with the compression loss, would a poor valve seat, bent valve or sticking valve let air from #3 to #4 and vice versa?

Re: Proper Head Installation

With the continuous heating and cooling of the block, you can get bolts loosening over time. I've been told to retorque the head a few times if the head is re-installed and then it won't hurt to...

Re: 4 blade fan woble

Just be warned, if it wobbles too much it could stress or fatigue the blades. Make sure your fan is still in good condition and running in a balanced fashion. I had one of those four blades on my car...

Re: Here is a bargain! LOL

Nice original condition bug but I doubt anyone will be willing to cover that amount. It does draw in the viewers to the ad though.

Re: Terriable backfiring

Similar to what Curtis has mentioned, I've run into fuel blockages due to rust (either in tank or sediment bowl) and with movement of the vehicle it can stir up the sediment and block the fuel flow....

Re: 4:11 Rear end & No overdrive???

Re: Installing a Wiper Blade

Check out the video by richpin at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=-8FR51Vh29o
It's a video of a wiper motor rebuild but around 2min 30 seconds he illustrates putting the blade on the arm.

Re: Strange Noise - Need Help to ID

Could it be a loose hubcap rattling about? Would be nice if it's just a little play in one of those.

Re: Strange Noise - Need Help to ID

If you have a stone guard in place, they sometimes build up a vibration that will rattle a bit and gets amplified through the front sheet metal. (Same idea as the splash pans)
Is your horn cover...

Re: Import tax

One problem I see is that the parts that can be made cheaper (due to labour costs or costs of raw materials) will still be sought out by a majority of the buyers. This may not encourage them to buy...

Re: Death wobble?

Don't forget, low tire pressure or incorrect toe-in can also add to the equation and amplify the severity of a front end shimmy.

Re: Lost Neutral

I've seen transmission towers put back on without the proper positioning of the shift forks so it more or less locked the transmission in a gear. Maybe one of the forks broke and it's staying in one...

Re: Recommendations For Selling

Nice car! It will be easier to sell if the engine is in running condition and you'll probably get a better purchase price too. As long as the engine doesn't need major overhauling/expense and it just...
