Re: Locating dimple on timing gear

I agree with SS except you can find the dimple at the top of the exhaust stroke. If you set your rotor there it would be 180* out.

Re: Schwalms

Ora is a first class guy. He is very busy and he likes to answer questions through e-mail. So send him an e-mail. Address is on their web site.

Re: Map software

If you want a GPS program that will work on your phone or tablet a program called InRoute is hands down the best I have seen. It will pick a route for you or you can tell it exactly the roads you...

Re: Electrical Problem?

By not start I assume you mean won't crank. You have checked all the important connections. So I would check the switch contact on top of the starter. Or possibly your starter pinion is jammed on the...

Re: Tips for brake floater kit installation?

I like them and have used them for years on the front. I don't feel they are nessasary on the rear. There are two big advantages. One, they self center the shoe to the drum and two, they work on the...

Re: Battery constantly draining

Disconnect the wires coming out of the cutout. Put you amp meter across and see if there is any draw. If you don't have an amp meter just disconnect one wire at a time and see if it helps. You have a...

Re: Proper way to re-torque?

Assuming you are just re-torqueing just go straight to 55 ft.lbs in sequence including the goose-neck. Most people don't recommend backing off the nut first unless it has been on there a long long...

Re: 28-29 gas caps gaskets

I just use a rubber O ring in my radiator cap. Screw it down until snug. No leaks no problems. You can get O rings of any size at Tractor supply or similar store.

Re: Install disconnect between 1 and 2, or 3 and 4?

If you put the switch in the hot cable, the cable between the battery and the switch will still be hot even with the switch off. If the cable rubs through and touches a ground there may be a fire....

Re: Engine RPM per mls/h

I have seen a chart for that somewhere at least for high gear. But you can figure that out mathematically. Tiresize.com has some interesting information.

All bets are off. Can't really help you with that setup but something must be loose up there.

Re: Eureka!!! Think I found the LED headlight Holy Grail for $6 each!

Yes that is true. Some of those bulbs do not have the ground on the outer shell. Go to LEDLight.com product #78989. Those bulbs are correct of the Model A. but they will not focus so are not really...

Re: Eureka!!! Think I found the LED headlight Holy Grail for $6 each!

I have tried these bulbs and they are no good for night time driving. 30MPH tops. However they are very good for day time driving if you like to run with your lights on. Very low power draw saving...

Re: Carburetor pre adjustment

Remember the idle mixture screw on the carb regulates air not gas. Screwing it in, cuts down on air, richening the mixture.

Re: Carburetor pre adjustment

I think the idle air adjustment should be out about one and one half turns.

Re: Help she no go....

Possibly the end of the rotor arm is bent down so far it is not close enough to the buttons on the distributor body. When he raised the rotor up a bit it got close enough to the buttons.

Re: Help she no go....

That is as it should be. Do you have a good spark at the end of the coil wire when held about 1/4 inch from a head stud. If you do but still have no spark at the plugs then check to see if the rotor...

Re: Help she no go....

If you have continuity between the armored cable and the inner wire that screws into the distributor you have a short between the two.

Re: New Battery shut off switch, now ammeter is strange

Because between 3 and 4 you will always have a hot wire between the switch and 3. Much better to have it on the ground cable.

Re: Brake adjustment - Frustration

I is pretty obvious that your brakes are bound up with no lubrication. They will never work properly this way. It is time to take them all apart, lubricate what needs it, replace parts that need it...

Re: Advance spark and overheating

The best way to set timing is with a timing light. Anything else is a guess. With that said the A is not real fussy about timing. But it should not have more than 28-30 degrees. So where do you set...

Re: spark at the plugs

If it is a carb problem, spraying the carb cleaner in at a fast idle won't do anything. At the very least you need to spray it with the engine off. Really you need to take the carb apart and really...
