Re: Mitchell Overdrive problem

Ensure you get it all the way into gear when shifting to high. When I first got my Mitchell I "missed" a few gears. Totally my fault, I simply was not shifting it hard enough (being too gentle) to...

Re: Loud Thud

How is your front spring. A weak spring will cause the spring to be too close to the spring perch and "bottom out" when you hit a pot hole.

Re: Tillotson carb

Old31, the float gauge you linked to is for a Zenith. Will it fit the Tillotson? Rennen's Corner has one for the Tillotson (and Marvel). https://rennerscorner.com/carburetor.html

Re: Opinion on European Classic Tires

My Town Sedan would wander, even before I installed Lucas Tires. I installed a panhard bar in the rear which helped some. Then when I was installing my Mitchell overdrive I found a broken shackle on...

Re: Transmission bearings

I know Bert's had a limited supply of both bearings a couple of months ago. Not the same as listed in their catalog so ask for the "good ones" when you call Steve.

Re: Seafoam

I haven't been driving my '06 F-150 much due to Covid and no where to go. About a month ago I filled the tank and the fuel gas didn't move, probably from sitting on ľ full for a couple of months. I...

Re: Oh man. Now I canít even get my A to start or make a noise.

Good going. I always put di-electric grease on connections and bulbs to prevent corrosion and moisture.

Re: Stopping Distances

Wick, I AGREE! But try convincing some old(er) and not so old "Model A Mechanics" that insist on setting up brakes "as Henry did" or using the Brake Board. :p:p

Re: Stopping Distances

Synchro, do the rear actuating arms fit the front brake shaft without any modifications? Sounds like a good setup.

Re: Some battery information

Hi, John. Sounds crazy, eh? The oil floats on top of the electrolyte.

Here is the place I got it from and more info on how it works.

Re: Some battery information

I would think your battery guy would tell you to ensure you had a good water level, at least enough to cover the plates. When a battery is charged, whether it be on a charger or in your car, it...

Re: Opinion on European Classic Tires

No, Lucas is just down the road from us. I don't need tires right now. I only looked because you mentioned them in post #3 and they don't even list them anymore?? I'll call tomorrow.

Re: Oil Filter Poser

I think we agree on the BYPASS valve. But that has nothing to do with the Model A oil pump having enough pressure to pump oil thru the filter or the anti-drainback "valve" (what some to refer to as a...
