Re: Considering buying a T

I have an 09 T touring, 28 A rpu and my avatar V8. They are all very different drives, but the T is the lively one. Light as a daisy, go-kart steering, super fast gear shift.
I've had the T 40yrs,...

Re: RH Drive Model A

My only problem with the RHD As I have driven is the centre gas pedal, find it uncomfortable holding my right leg over towards it. Of course that's the British built version, the Argentine version...

Re: Ultrasonic cleaner

Got one just big enough to hold a V8 Stromberg, with heat & timer. Does a great job, judging by all the muck in the bottom of the tank. Not done my A carb yet.

Re: 1935 model 60 cabriolet 22 h.p. v8

That shot was taken when it was owned by my friend Eric, his 1912 T in the background and the nose of his Pilot in the foreground

Re: 35 phaeton top

That cabriolet belongs to my pal Roger who lives 5 miles away. My avatar is the sister vehicle, Model 60 Coupe De Luxe. Both had their engines replaced in 1937 with tin-side V8-60s like those in the...

Re: Headlights for my '28

Second that. I have the same situation. You need to change reflectors and light switch to get parking lights + low/high beam. Question is..do you need parking lights?

Re: LED Headlights

Interesting comments from Keith. Only thing I can say is that the changeover on my VW didn't change the pattern and it passed inspection with the old style beam tester. My V8 is exempt inspection,...

Re: Who has a pickup and fitted it with rear bumper bars

I also want to fit bumpers on my 28rpu, probably with a tow hitch. Would like to see details on your brackets.

Re: LED Headlights

Someone on the V8 forum was complaining that he hadn't seen an LED bulb that replicated the correct light pattern. But I have bulbs from a UK supplier in my V8 which look fine to me, I also have LEDs...

Re: Stromberg 81 vs 97, rebuild or new?

I'll second that. When I said I completely stripped I meant COMPLETELY went through it, just fitting a kit won't fix everything that could be wrong.

Re: Wolf whistle

Re: Stromberg 81 vs 97, rebuild or new?

I completely stripped & rebuilt mine with the help of Clive @ Stromberg here in the UK, but I think parts were about $70 + a good day of my labour, and I bought a sonic cleaner - any excuse to buy a...

Re: looking for info on Lucas Flathead distributors

I had a Lucas on my 81A Cabriolet when I was 18yrs old. Never touched it, started on half turn of the crankshaft, you could barely hear that the starter had engaged. The body was full of bondo, but...

1935 drum with period wire wheel adaptor

These were used on Jensen prototype in 1935. Anyone seen these and recognise the maker? It has a spacer and adaptor with a taper with 3 keys and a central locking nut

Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

I have a repro radiator. It will empty itself to well below the top of the tubes, even though it runs very cold. I can't see the overflow in the top tank, I think it is too low so that the turbulent...

Re: Early '28 Model A - possible AR?

The politically correct term nowadays is E28. Brent doesn't define what DOES make an E28. I would think it is the brake system where the handbrake operates the same linkage as the footbrake. This...

Re: 6 volt LED headlights

Re: Stromberg e fire distributor

Worked fine for me once the engine was running, but I had starting problems on 6volt. I think the starter was causing voltage drop so the unit wouldn't energise. Gone back to a helmet.

Re: Anyone fitted a rear gas tank?

I'm not trying to make my A safe, just not quite so hazardous. The belly tanks don't work with original brakes. A rear tank just behind the axle like in my V8 wouldn't spill gas in my lap. I'm...
