Re: Wheel painting

I seem to remember that it took about a can and a half per wheel, but mine were in pretty rough shape.

Re: Model A's and Woodstock...

I was four... I did have a Model A buddy that was there. Unfortunately, we lost him about a year and a half ago...and he never told me that story. I found out he was there at his funeral.

Re: Wheel painting

Unfortunately, I am out of town right now, so I can't walk out to the garage and look at the can, but I'm pretty sure this is what it is. I will confirm when I get home.

Re: Wheel painting

Are you doing a fine points car, or just cleaning up a daily driver? For my daily driver I found a product from Rustolem that matches the Tacoma Cream pretty damned well.

I especially like that I...

Re: Kerosene

That is how Pop taught me to do it. However, I agree, pulling the pan is still better, especially on an engine that you haven't had open before.

Re: 62

Yes, with the '30 Standard Coupe some people have removed the package tray and moved the seat further back. You gain 3 - 4 inches.

My Coupe is unmodified. I am 5'11" and have the seat adjusted...

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: 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: 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: 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.

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.
