The spark plug wires are miswired. No wonder it won't run.

Re: Model A as a mobile studio

Wasted 12 minutes? Perhaps.

All I see is a guy who had health problems, had to cut meat from his diet, and is now living life to the fullest and enjoying his Model A as a daily driver. Jealous a...

Re: Copper head gasket or best Kevlar?

I know you guys are just trying to be helpful, and I thank you.

However, I am most positive that it is combistion gases blowing into the coolant. No question. That is fact. Otherwise, I...

Re: Copper head gasket or best Kevlar?

I recently installed a Best brand kevlar (they call it graphite) head gasket on a Model A. I followed all directions exactly. No water seepage, however when pulling a hill in 3rd gear at 45 MPH or...

Re: Model A cross-country migration

Thank you for doing the facebook page so we can follow along!

Trouble shifting into 2nd or 3rd- BUT.. Unique situation

I have a somewhat unique situation, seeking advice before I dig in.

I have a 29 Model A standard fordor that has never been apart. A "preservation car" if there ever was one. It was featured as...

Re: 1930 Blindback Restore to original?

Judging by the way the doors are hanging, that car is going to need wood replacement. Agreed, that one is going to be a money pit.

The one in my picture above required all new wood. It took...

Re: Head Gasket for the 6:1 Iron head

The "silicone impregnated" gasket is a ticking time bomb. The question is not "if" it will fail, but "when". When it fails, you end up with a crankcase full of water. Mine failed after about 5...

Re: If Henry was on Twitter would anyone like him?

Not only is Bert's Model A Center an excellent choice of aftermarket parts vendor, but they also sell an excellent rebuilt Zenith carbutetor.

Re: When is it time to sell?

Hey Dave,

Your club has a couple of really good Model A guys in it. All you need to do is pick up the phone. Maybe have some pizza and beverages for them. Just sayin.

Re: Front inner race turns on hub

Take the tin foil out immediately. It will compress, spread, then shred and fill your bearing with shrapnel.

The centerpunch idea works fine if the fit isn't too loose. Otherwise, change the...

Re: Model A head combustion chamber shape

Re: Remove mold

You can kill mold without bleach or chemicals. Use ozone. If you find an old ozone generator, you're all set. If not, you can build a Tesla coil and run it with the car in an enclosed area (drain...
