Re: 9th Annual 31 & Older Only Car Show

Can't wait. Praying for good weather. Of course, last year it was fun even in the rain.

Re: Update on starting problem

Also, if your battery is draining when the car sits, one important thing to check is to ensure that your generator cut-off is working properly.

Re: LED Head Lamp Upgrade

I'm really interested in hearing what your impressions are once you have them and have driven with them for a while.

Re: Additional Fuses

I have a fuse on the starter, but I also put a small fuse box high on the drivers side kick panel. Any accessories I have added go through that.

By the way, the fuse I have on the starter is not...

Re: 31 Coupe Windshield Pivot

I've replaced those on mine. I had a very hard time getting them to press in tight enough to stay. They still wiggle a bit in the holes. If I was pickier, I might bring them to a machine shop to...

Re: Wire spoke wheel trueing

I know that there are more precise ways of doing it using heat...but I did a pretty good job with just some hammers, a slide-hammer, and a lot of patience. Mine are all within an 1/8 of an inch of...

Re: What's the latest you can remember anyone using an A?

I drive mine a lot...and when I'm not driving it my father usually is. However, I will admit it is not the primary car for either of us.

However, there was a guy in my town that drove his '31...

Re: OK,I wanna change my......

I've got a four-blade, and I've done it without taking the radiator out. I wouldn't recommend it. It really isn't hard to pull the radiator. It will give you an opportunity to clean some things up...

Re: Tube shocks

I am another fan of Ken Davis's shocks. When I got my Coupe all the shock linkage parts were missing. Ken's set was a very affordable solution. There is no question that it is a stiffer ride than...

Re: Oil pan baffle

I know that you already got it out, but I thought I would share my technique. I put a board across the open pan, then slip a big C clamp alongside and under the baffle. I then gently screw in the...

Re: LED Headlights

Re: Gas today-can you beat this?

I think I paid $2.65 the other day here in Connecticut. That is with corn crud. It is next to impossible to find corn free gas in our state.

Re: Tom Endy

There are many helpful people here on the Fordbarn, but Tom is a real standout. He is incredibly helpful and welcoming, even to a stupid newbie like me.

Tom, I wish you a speedy recovery!

Re: Easy Oil Pan Baffel Removel

That is a clever idea. I've always done it with a board and a big C-Clamp. It allows me to crank it out slowly and gently....no oil splatter...no dents...

Nice to know that there are lots of...

Re: Anybody modified an ATV/mower snow plow for Model A?

The rear end in a Model A will not stand up to plowing. It is not geared for it. However, a AA will plow just fine.

Most doodlebugs have truck or tractor rear ends. My father's was a...

Re: Leaking carb

That is a common place for a leak to appear in the carb. Also, shutoff valves do wear. They can usually be polished, re-seated, or even just tightened.

Re: best place and part number for stock style points?

I agree, the best you can get are original ones. Even the used ones can be cleaned up to work well and are long lasting.

As for new ones, the best I have found are from NAPA. I find that they...

Re: Rain Day internet surfing

That is a sharp-eyed kid.

Not to nitpick, but wouldn't that have had a black grill shell when it left the factory?

It is a mighty nice truck.

Re: Model A car names

I took a similar tack, I figured that the Model A was Edsel's baby, so mine is named Josephine after his daughter.

As a side note, my father, who is a clock repairman, got to know her when he did...
