Re: Model A dies with throttle open

Thanks. That makes the most sense so far. I cleaned my gas tank obsessively but I'm sure there's still crud kicking around in there. If it starts doing it again I know what to do.

Re: Model A dies with throttle open

I haven't messed with this one, I bought it freshly rebuilt - which of course does not guarantee that it will be trouble-free.

Yes, I do know there's not a pump in the A carburetor. Using the hand...

Re: Model A dies with throttle open

I've been driving it without the pipe. I realize that is maybe somewhat ill-advised. It does great - plenty of power, until it gets in the "mood". I have to coast to a stop and wait for it to decide...

Re: Model A dies with throttle open

That would make sense. I reused the old gasket because I didn't like the two-piece gasket that came in a gasket set I had, and I was eager to get back on the road. I checked it with ether after...

Model A dies with throttle open

Hey guys, my Model A recently started - seemingly without rhyme or reason - getting into a "mood" where it will idle forever just fine, but if you even touch the throttle it immediately dies....

Early Ford bench seat

While horse trading, I ended up with a bench seat. I think it is mid-30s Ford. The fella told me it came out of a Model A but it is significantly wider than my coupe so I'm pretty sure it's from a...

Re: Coupe body wood questions

The easy way out would be to remove this top, fill the screw holes and revert to a stock roof. I'm in the process of removing all the old bondo from the body and closing up the few small rust holes...

Re: Brake springs

I am not an expert, but I have just done the brakes on all four corners of my coupe. Here is what I learned: your brake shoe springs can't be too strong. The old springs have endured many...

Coupe body wood questions

Hi all, I'm building an old school banger-powered hot rod A (which I have a build thread on the HAMB about). We believe the body, a 1930 coupe, was drag raced in the late 50s or early 60s, but was...
