Re: How to check a Model B Cam?

Center cam bearing wear minimum is kind of moot. There is a max clearance however if you measure the wear in the block even a cam with standard bearings can exceed limits.

Re: Totaly "Restored" 1st Sport Coupe sold in San Francisco

Yes I am hung up on the term Restoration especially when advertised as a “total” restoration. For that kind of money the car should be correct.

Re: Model A's and Woodstock...

Spent the time in the Jungles of Vietnam. Never heard about it until I returned to the states. I did however buy a 30 Tudor that was waiting for me when I got out.

Bought a model “A” with black powder coated wheels. Never gave it much thought but upon close inspection all five wheels had bent spokes. Just who in the hell would do that. Trump

Re: Replacing fuel shutoff valve, does tank need to be empty?

You don't have to drain it...But I would. There are products specifically made for sealing fuel, "Fuel Lube" is one.
