Re: Save it or drive it

I think this is great advice for most owners. Having said that. We have a car that we have owned for over 40 years. I am to old to do the work that was done to it again. Now only drive it to...

Re: Do YOU single-clutch ?

Double clutch going up or down the gears. Corners are a challenge, each one can be different.

After 60 years I still don’t get it right all the time. So far, have not lost a transmission.

Re: Taking the plunge into Model A ownership!

I would just add to this good advise. That there are some states that do not title cars after a certain age. New York and Connecticut as an example. You would only get a bill of sale. Keep...

Re: Taking the plunge into Model A ownership!

I would wait for a car that has had its running gear gone over. Front end, brakes, Springs, shocks, engine and trans.

I would want a safe driving car. You could end up paying $14,000.00 to...

Re: Need to purchase an outside rear view mirror for a 29 Tudor

Yes, fits tight, you do not have to use the little screws on the inside that one of the posts mentioned effected his paint.

Re: Need to purchase an outside rear view mirror for a 29 Tudor

Just put a new one on our 29 Sport Coupe. Hinge type from Bert’s. Very happy with it.

Does not vibrate when driving.

I highly recommend.

Enjoy.

Re: 1930 Coupe front end shimmy

I agree that you have some real problems in that front end.

If it where mine, I would replace front axel, wishbone, and front spring. Than repair all the worn out parts, all of them.

You, I...

Re: Any info on A217, Sport Coupe on MAFCA website?

It’s over 90 years old and someone has spent a lot of time and money taking care of it.

I like it. My 92 year old aunt has some add on parts that were needed to keep her going.

92 is a long...

Re: Anybody else quit Ebay because of fees and tax?

I think ebay has a place.

As with any buy/sell location, it’s not for everyone.

Re: Compression Test Results

Re: 1930 Sport Coupe 11 MPG, backfire when turned off

We also turn it completely off when no longer running car. Donít turn it down tight, just turn it until you feel it stopping. Keeps carb from dripping.

Re: Engine Misfire Knock

I would try the 20w-50 High Detergent Oil and the Marvel in your gas.

The miss firing could very well be several sticking valves. That might also be a big part of the sounds your hearing.

Re: Engine Misfire Knock

I won’t be to quick to start taking things apart.

Just took a ride in the 29.

You know, even after 60 years of driving these things, it still puts a smile on my face to go out for a drive.

Have the same problem in our 1929.

Only when backing.
