Re: Where does this piece go?

If it's solid steel, maybe it was used as a jack handle.

Re: Water Outlet Question

Copper or no gasket, and no breaks. Paper gasket will break it every time.

Re: Hill and fuel

I agree. There must be a plugged line or carb passage if it needs the help of a pump.

Re: Fan belt size

Add things to your parts order, and buy from a dealer so you get the correct belt. The belt angle needs to be correct as well as the width and length. The belt I bought from Bratton's in the 90's for...

Re: Would you use this coil?

Use a 1 1/2 ohm coil rated for at least 30 watts or more. Auto stores should have something in stock.

Re: Missing slinger

It could cause a front oil leak, as well as the front pulley being loose when the nut is tight.

Re: Standard roadster for sale CA

Yes, I've seen very nice original Model A's sell for half that amount.
Maybe the high price will raise the value of mine.

Re: Would you use this coil?

Yes, especially when you try to measure less than about 5 ohms.

Re: Wolf whistle

In high school I used an English bicycle hand brake handle and cable to run my wolf whistle. This way you can flex the cable and mount the handle where you want.

Re: $46,900, you have to check this one out.

I simply mix 4 ounces of MMO with each 10 gallons of good gas with no corn crap in it.

Re: Generator Question

Moving the brush in the picture is correct, and moving it up lowers the amps. I'd adjust for 2 or 3 amps for average daytime driving. More amps cooks the battery and evaporates the water.

Re: Galvanized Model A?

I've seen a few Model A's with galvanized tin to replace the fabric top. They are usually installed with dozens of screws, then the seam covered with tar.

Re: Lesser of two evils..cracked main babbit or used replacement?

I'd also fit it and run it. Shim to get .0015" clearance. If the diameter is correct, then you shouldn't be able to move the main left and right against the block more than .0015". If you can move it...

Re: '29 CCPU seat shopping - what do I need?

The last examples I saw, LB had the seam right on the edge with no tucks around the corners, which is not correct.
Classtique from Minnesota had the seam lower and had folds at the corners, as...

Re: Clutch

$10 for NOS disc at a swap meet. $5 for a good looking pressure plate at a swap meet. Sand the flywheel with a 1/4 sheet electric sander $0, and now it works like new. Your cost may vary.

Re: Oil pan sludge

I tried the best way possible, and it can't be done. You must pull the pan and valve cover to clean the sludge. Be sure to drop the pan upside down on the grass to removed the dip tray.

Re: Tube shock question

The more you tilt them, the softer the ride. Tilted 45 degrees will be about .7 as what the ride harshness is when straight up.

1928?
If so, then is it multiplate, or single plate clutch?

Yes, you should use B tappets, or you risk cam and tappet failure.

Re: Need guidance on installing correct floor & firewall finishes

Cut 2 circles of metal and screw them together over the hole. Bratton's, Snyder's, and Bert's sell a firewall pad that works great to keep out heat and much noise.

Foolish to toss out tools.
