Re: Roadster getting harder to start

Intake air leak would do it. Suspects are: manifold gasket, Most likely, . Joint between carb and intake manifold, warped surfaces. The manifold itself, unlikely. When right, Model A’s want to...

Re: No comment

Hey, where are you old miss people? Don’t be so quiet. It’s perfect for what they use it for.

Re: Valve spring issues

They were very likely all the same height when you put them in. If that is so, the short spring has taken a set. It probably has brothers and sisters in your engine. Scary thought.

Re: 1928 will not stay running

You say it would not even crank???? Better start there. Not much between the batt and the starter. Just cables. Put the car in third just to make sure the engine will turn. Good luck.

Re: "Saging' Frame? /Motor Mounts?

This can result from cracked rear engine mounts. If that’s not it, maybe the frame is bent. There are shops that can fix the frame.

Re: Black spark plugs

Just clean them and see how long it takes for them to foul again. Model A plugs need frequent cleaning. No big deal. Slow driving for a long time, a parade, running rich can all foul them.

Re: Car has Zero Electric

Don’t be fooled by a bad joint between the cable wires and the connector on the end. This is a crimped joint and corrosion in there can drive you crazy trying to find the problem.

Re: Smooth Shifting The Model A

You don’t need to double clutch up shifting. Just spend a little time in neutral before you go to second. If you want to play with the clutch pedal to spend the time, that’s okay.
If you are not...

Re: Smooth Shifting The Model A

I like that, matching the rev exhaust sound. That should people understand.

Re: Smooth Shifting The Model A

You can make this easier to understand if you say if you are up shifting or down shifting. For up shifting, no need to ever double clutch. It does nothing. Many people do let the clutch up in...

Re: New to Ford Model A

If the horn sounds good, keep it. Pack hard used a big horn like that, and probably a lot of other cars in the 20’s.

Re: Tail light / Switch Issues

You said you put new wiring in for the front but not the back??? It’s all one big harness. You must have just replaced some wires. Not familiar with LED head lamps, but adding a resistor to the head...

Re: Positive Ground

Ground is positive and the hot wires are all negative . Any hot to ground will light the lights. You don’t have to treat it differently.

Re: New Two Blade Fan

Don’t use a spacer if it does not allow the two tapers to fit together tightly. We had one weld itself to the pump nose. Make clearance.
