Re: 1930 model A starter 12V conversion

A lot of folks say you can run a 6V starter on 12V. But I think its better to convert the starter to 12V if the car has been changed to 12V. You also might want to use the Barrel drive.

Re: Marvel vs Model B carb?

best resource in the US is Rennier Brothers in Michigan. Don't know about Australia.
Zenth/Tilliston parts can't be used on a Marvel.
It's a good carb.

Re: Motor Rebuilding

Seeing as you live in SD, give Bert's in Colo a call. I installed one of their motors last year and has run great, they do them one at a time, I was on their list for about 4 months-but worth it.

Re: Best Source for Goodyear WW 475/19 Tires

Try Walmart.com with free shipping to your local Walmart store.
For tubes try Bert's, they sell radial tubes and they are great.
