Re: Model A Registration Woes

Yes, the rules are very state specific. Find out exactly what you need in the state of Maine (or the state you are registering in). I think that they are pretty easy.

I had a similar problem and...

Re: Using Ford Barn as an distraction

I'm deeply saddened for your loss. I was an Airman myself. Air Force is family.

I wish you comfort in this time of sorrow.

Re: Champion 3 x plugs

Are the reproductions still multi-part like the originals? Can they be disassembled?

Re: The truck that started it all for me...

KGB just happens to be my initials. Years ago, when I first got a cell phone, I found that six of the digits spelled "KGBNUT." It got to be a running joke with my friends, so now I use it as a...

The truck that started it all for me...

I have been searching for this photo for years. This is the truck that made me want a Model A as a kid. It was my father's truck. I never saw it for myself, but I fell in love with this photo when...

Re: Zenith 2 tip

I grab this one off Amazon. It was a little pricey, but it works well.

Re: 30 Coupe seat upholtery parts

I did my '30 Coupe about four years ago. My LB kit did, in fact, come with the draft stoppers and the package tray piece.

Re: Carb Rebuild

Based on a recommendation from a friend, I started using PineSol as a carb dip. I just pick it up at the grocery store and mix it 50/50 with water in a plastic paint bucket. I have been using the...

Re: The great American race

On the left side of that car there is a long bar that starts at the middle of the frame and goes diagonally up and across the spare tire. There appears to be a foot-shaped pedal at the bottom.

Re: Ten years later, she's alive!

Don't forget to flush her out and give her fresh fluids. The old might be okay, but fresh is cheap insurance.

Good luck,

Re: Sticking Starter Switch

As for the not running issue, you are going to have to go through all the basics. Personally, if you didn't set it up yourself, I would start by checking the timing and the points gap. For me,...

Re: Historical use of Model A to run farm equipment

The setups I have seen like that they just jack up one wheel. The other wheel on the ground won't turn, so power it sent to the other wheel. Yes, it puts a lot of load on the one wheel, but when...

Re: Model A sculpture

I think the "crudeness" is intentional. I took it as part of its folk art style. I know that style is not for everyone, but I really like it. The little driver shows considerable detail and...

Re: Wheel painting

I seem to remember that it took about a can and a half per wheel, but mine were in pretty rough shape.

Unfortunately, I am out of town right now, so I can't walk out to the garage and look at the can, but I'm pretty sure this is what it is. I will confirm when I get home.

Are you doing a fine points car, or just cleaning up a daily driver? For my daily driver I found a product from Rustolem that matches the Tacoma Cream pretty damned well.

Re: Kerosene

That is how Pop taught me to do it. However, I agree, pulling the pan is still better, especially on an engine that you haven't had open before.

Re: 62

Yes, with the '30 Standard Coupe some people have removed the package tray and moved the seat further back. You gain 3 - 4 inches.

My Coupe is unmodified. I am 5'11" and have the seat adjusted...
