Re: Model A parts Suppliers.

Thanks John. As Mark noted, we’ve had some serious smoke here; stuck inside now for ten days. A little clearing today. That is, enough so that I could take the garbage out and not feel like it was...

Re: model a shocks

Just buy four and put them front and back. Don’t worry about a $1200 investment in a $12,000 (or more) car.

Re: Starter Bendix bolt broken

I carry a spare bolt and lock washer in my cars. I’ve been stuck a couple times as a result of failures on these parts. I’ve never tried to remove the broken parts. Almost 60 years and over 50,000...

Re: Model A parts Suppliers.

One of the reasons I like Bratton’s is they are willing to make a value judgment in their catalog on what they sell. I also trust Snyder’s, though I find their catalog hard to navigate. But mostly I...

Re: Engine Splash Pans

I put ‘em on because they belong there, and I like my cars as close to complete and original as safely possible. But I admit they are a pain to remove and install when necessary, like dropping the...

Re: Model A insurance coverage

Hagerty specifically disallows insect damage. I don’t know about rodents.

Re: Model "A" Ford Clubs

Dbaldwi3 It used to be you only needed six people to form a MAFCA chapter. It may be the same. You could look into it if you have a group.

Do the simple things first. Check the wire in the lower plate.

Re: Model "A" Ford Clubs

I have been a member of MAFCA and the Beaver Chapter since 1961, except for 1977-78 (personal upheaval). But this year is my last for both. Why? Because after 59 yrs in the hobby, I have experienced...

Re: Install of 1929 Sport Coupe Belt Rail molding

I used brass screws on the inner rail on mine to avoid future rust. This makes any later removal or adjustments easier (but I hope I will never have to remove it!)As for installing the outer trim, I...

Re: Install of 1929 Sport Coupe Belt Rail molding

Be very careful with the outer piece. They are fragile, dent easily, and nearly impossible to find a replacement if it gets damaged. You are fortunate to have an original. I looked for two years...

Re: Fillister head screw?

It turns out that the mystery screw matches the screws that hold the lower part of the steering wheel support to the upper part, BUT both of mine are in place, so this is still a mystery as to where...

Re: Fillister head screw?

That seems like a logical answer, but the screw will not go in. I’ve got a column support bracket in place that’s been there at least ten years, and there are no screws in it now, though probably...

Fillister head screw?

As I closed the driver’s door on my coupe last week, there was a slight "thunk", like something fell on my running board. Looking down, there was a Fillister head machine screw, about 1” long and...

Re: Radiator leaking

Try just plain water, not a coolant. Water cools better. High temps can cause water to overflow and present as a leak. Model A radiators like to find their own fill level too. Also, make sure you are...
