Re: 1927 throttle cable

I learn something new every day.......we had a '27 engine in our Hack, but I guess someone knocked out the casting and put on an earlier valve cover for the throttle rod.

Re: Removing Ignition Wire from Distributer

Good deal. So to prevent a short, should I spin it in until it bottoms out, then back it off a turn or two?

Re: Found a 28

Ok guys, maybe I need a lesson on telling the differences in years on Model A's.

The owner tells me it's a '28, but it is possible he is wrong.
