Re: Model A Registration Woes

We had the same thing happen. They had to deal with the state where the title was.
On the number, the state probably assigned a vin number and that is the one to use. It has nothing to do with the...

Re: Front Tool Box

A friend mounted some drawers under his pickup bed that work quite well. Lockable.
I don't think many people want to steal your tools. The only time I lock my front bumper box is when I stay at...

Re: Brake Light Switch

At least take it apart and see what the problem is before you spend $50. So simple, you should be able to fix it.

Re: fish scale instead of torque wrench

One pound at 20 in, or 2 pounds at 10 in, 5 pounds at 4 in.

Re: Shift Tower & shift lever

Yes, the ball should be round. Be sure to check and clean your detents. Put new springs in if needed.

Re: Your local club's best tours?

One of our top tours is to the Amish Country in Ohio. Berlin. We go there every other year. 4 day tour with three nights at an Amish Motel. The roads were made for the A. Great food too.

Re: Rsk

On your plugs, be sure to clean down in the annulus of the plug. Use a small pointy file and dig it out.

Re: Rsk

Two things to check. Both easy. Unscrew fuel line in carb and make sure the ferrule is at the very end of the tube. If not, circumcise it a bit. Turn the gas valve on and make sure you get full flow...

Re: pan install

I just bent up a piece of 1/4 in rod. I think an old piece of brake rod. Put a few bends in it so it pushes against the frame rail and the pump through the hole.
I have used the same rod several...

Re: Sound deadening suggestions

Whatever you do, don’t get carried away on the floor boards. Remember that they will have to be removed some day on the side of the road.

Re: Radius Ball

Since it is spring loaded, my guess is that they did intend to have a little movement upon impact loading. If it was a rigid connection, that would put pretty big shock loads into the bell hsg.

Re: Making an A axle steer easier

The king pins are in tension. The car hangs from the king pins, that are supported by a bearing at the top. Make sure this is what you have

Re: Making an A axle steer easier

Donít change king pins. Just new bushings. Easy.

Re: Old problem but new twist? Coolant loss

Check the torque on your head bolts for a start. If it is going into the engine, no you can’t live with it.

Re: Stop Quick, engine dies

First and easiest thing to do is flatten the surfaces between the carb flange and intake manifold flange. I'm sure you will find them warped a bit. I have fixed several doing just this. All you...

Re: Update on transmission plug

Just use the kerosene and then fill with new 600 oil. Put a new plug in that fits and seals.

Re: Oil pump rebuild

Be careful with the splash pan removal and install. Very sharp edges. Need a lot of band aids.

Re: High-pitch whistle when accelerating

The book says 45, but that's wrong. Get up to 35 and you should be good.

Re: Stubborn Zenith

Next time you have the carb off, hit the mounting flange a big file and make sure it is flat and not warped a bit. Can’t have any low spots.
