I'm not sure what you are asking but Ford Model A wheels in 1928 and 1929 were 21 inches.

Re: Ignition timing question

There should be a 40* range between full retard and full advance. I set mine from 10* ATDC to 30* BTDC. I agree 40* BTDC is way too much.

Re: how many tie rod turns equates to 1/16 inch toe in change ?

But that would be at the tie rod ends. The effect on the tire would be much greater. Or am I missing something.

Re: how many tie rod turns equates to 1/16 inch toe in change ?

I don't know the math but it doesn't take much of a turn to get a big result. I am guessing 1/4 turn would give you at least 1/16 change in toe.

Re: Centering 1930 Model A Deluxe Coupe on towing trailer

That is a little hard to tell without seeing the trailer but generally you want to have some weight on the hitch. Probably in your case depending on tow vehicle about 100 lbs as a starting point....

Re: Tank sealer

If it is plastic you cam melt it with a soldering iron and build up the hole just like you would welding up a hole.

Re: Distributor question

I think you were feeling what is called back lash when it was in the car. That is just a little play between the shaft tangs and also the drive gear. Some cars have more than others depending on wear.

Re: Can anyone recommend a rear hub puller?

That one on Amazon is NOT what you need. Look up universal 3 jaw puller. You need something like that.

Re: Speedster stalls on Acceleration

You said," I know there is no fuel restriction" but have you taken the carbs apart to make sure the main jets are clean. Sure sounds like a fuel problem to me.

On Flathead Ted's system the fronts center themselves. Works very well.

Re: Gas problem?

Try it with the gas cap off. You might have a vent problem. Brent beat me to it.

Re: 1931 Model A Coupe light switch body installation

I agree with Licensed to kill. I had the same problem last week. Once I got the slots lined up for the spider all was well.

Re: Rear wheels upward travel limitation

Re: New Marvel Scheibler Carburetor?

I suppose you could make it work but there are Marvel Schebler carbs made for the Model A.
I have one on my car and they work great.

Re: Carb identify

The gas line must be adjusted a little. I made up a new gas line from a length of hydraulic brake line. The GAV and throttle are OK.

A very good carburetor in my opinion. I have one on my car and I like it better in all respects over the Zenith.

Re: alternator

I just noticed that you have a 6 volt alternator and a 12 volt battery. That won't work.
Go all 6 volt or 12 volt. I would check the output of the 6 volt alternator and if it is good just put in a 6...

Re: Spark Question

The wireless plate should work although many have reported problems with them. I don't see the connector for the wireless plate in any of the pictures.
