Re: Squealing engine

When that happens, I have seen it get so hot that the cam melts the point arm rubbing block and closes up the points.

Re: New Guy

There are a ton of A’s out there. Don’t fall in love with the first one you see.

If it is just for your tools, here is what I did on my Roadster.

Re: Radiator repair shop near Venice, Florida

See if they will remove the top tank and rod it out. I bet they won’t. No one wants to mess with that top tank.

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

I hope you have already tried to turn it with the starter removed, or at least, try to turn the engine backwards before you take much apart. Third gear, push backwards.

Re: Starter Switch troubles

Take your old one apart. There is not much to it. Just make sure the hot parts can not be grounded. You may be able to fix it, or at least understand how it works. Don't be afraid to get in there...

Re: Ignition, way of

Search YouTube for How to time a Model A. That should help. Good luck and welcome.

Re: Rear brakes rubbing - axle shim?

Don’t worry about those seals. Just clean things up and grease the rr brgs by taking the drums off. Don’t use that fitting under the rr axle. Leave the rr axle alone. Those seals only come into...

Re: 30 Model A oil pump installation

I have a short piece of 1/4 inch rod, bent to go in the side hole and keep pressure on the pump while I put the pan on. Just bend up something to do this. Some people screw a bolt into the pipe...

Re: How do these points look?

Looks like they aren’t flat. If the engine likes them, run them.

Re: Possible Radiator Problem???

I did a test last summer on my car that has a good radiator. I ran the engine at about 2300 rpm. I think that is the engine speed for about 45 MPH. I put a pressure tap in the lower hose,...

Re: Possible Radiator Problem???

Last summer our club set up a way to flow test a radiator in the car. It takes a bigger pump than we had, have a bigger one now, but we were able to identify a plugged radiator easily. 36 GPM is a...

Re: 31 front pully removal replace

With the cover off, the top is easy. You grind a 45 deg angle on about 180 deg of the collar of the pully that passes under the seal. This will let you slide the pully past the lower seal using the...

Re: 31 front pully removal replace

You can replace it without dropping the pan. The cover has to come off. Put new seals in. I did it last year.

Your radiator is plugged. It should flow at least 36 GPM.

Re: Hello from Oregon!

Don’t buy a klugged up A. Hold out for a real A without any changes from standard. If it’s not areal A, not many people want it. It’s value is only to the guy who screwed it up.

Re: Hello from Oregon!

Don't buy the first A you come across. Take your time and get a good driver. You will love this hobby. There is nothing like the A. Good luck and have fun.
