Re: Push down ignition switch

I am glad this worked out for you. Thanks for letting us know.


Often, we make suggestions but never know if the problem was solved or what the outcome was.


You will enjoy having a "Pop-Out"...

Re: any advantages to downdraft carb & header..??

If you are going to make some changes with the engine itself, consider Cam and Compression. As stated before, the stock Model A cam is not much. The "B" cam is much much better and there are...

Re: No Compression in 3 & 4 Cylinders

I would suggest that you not use a copper gasket. There are better gaskets currently available that I feel seal better.


JMO,

Re: any advantages to downdraft carb & header..??

With a completely stock engine, I do not think you would realize much improvement.


If the engine had some upgrades, cam, more compression, bigger intake valves, some port work etc, then you...

Re: motor problems again

You say after running for 15 minutes, is this at Idle?


If this is a fresh engine, allowing it to idle for long periods of time is not good for the engine. The engine does not oil well at idle...

Re: 1931 Cabriolet Rumble Lid

It would not hurt to drill some drain holes.


I am also in the process of getting a rumble lid ready for paint.


I plan to get some Rust encapsulating paint down inside in this lower area.

Re: Battery

If your electrical system is in good condition, 6 Volts will work just fine and will be just as reliable as 12 Volts.

Re: Need help identifying Victoria door post part

I have seen reproductions of this part and they were all of poor quality.


I believe Bratton's has the parts to rebuild yours.

Re: Victorias

There is no such thing as a 4 door Victoria.


The Victoria was introduced in late 1930 as a 1931 Model. It was part of a group of "Deluxe" offerings to try to improve sales.

Re: Ford's Different Wheel Sizes

Smaller diameter wheels used a tire with a taller and wider cross section.


Taller cross section resulted in a softer ride.


Also the tread width got wider which resulted in better handling....

Re: Push down ignition switch

Personally, I would not buy the one from Mac's.


This is probably made in China and we have had nothing but problems with electrical stuff from China.

Re: Ford's Different Wheel Sizes

18's in '32


17's in '33 & '34


16's in '35 and on thru the war. I think clear up thru '48.


'35 was the last year for spoke wheels.

Re: What’s this Box???

That is a dual circuit head light relay. It helped to get full voltage to the headlights.


Not too uncommon in the old days.


You do not need it if everything is in good condition.

Re: Engine no run

You have to find out why #4 Cyl does not have any compression.


It sounds to me that it may have stuck a valve.


If so, it is probably an intake and I bet you can not develop any vacuum in...

Re: parts list: '31 fenders, running boards, etc.

Re: Throw out Bearing

It may have some resistance as it is packed with grease.


It will free up the first time it is used.
