Got my dad's transmission apart and one of the shifter forks is worn where the shift lever ball slides into it. Does anyone have any experience fixing these. They do not seem like they are being...

Re: scissors lifts

That kwik lift looks nice for smaller garages. If you're looking for a lift to work underneath the car, I'd stay away from a scissor lift. A four post one distributes the load and can be portable. ...

Re: Warning - Sophisticated Scammer Trolling the Want Adds

OK so you call police about the scammer. Tell him money is wired and then have police meet the person picking up the money. Western Union should be cooperative. If someone is regularly getting...

Re: F1 steering in a Model A

My 87 year old dad like the easier steering with the F100 box. He cut the flange and drilled holes to the figured angle for a stock installation. I was checking the lube in the box last week and...

Re: Overdrive experts I need some help.

If you mean the switch on the floor, you can just bypass it by connecting th two wires from the realy to the solenoid and eliminating the wire from the coil. The switches are readily available.

Re: How to remove drum & hub from the type with the hub flange is OUTSIDE of the drum

From my experience with Model As it is suggested the drums be turned to ensure they're true on center. I believe this is what someone meant by matching them up.

Re: Overdrive experts I need some help.

What you have is essentially the pull in coil not pulling in or not disengaging. There is a high current draw coil that pull in the Od and yhen a low current one maintains it. A set of points...

Re: Overdrive using electronic ignition

We just talked about this on another thread. Pertronix will provide you with the resistor value and wiring diagram to make it work. Cecil says he did not use a resistor and his has worked for 5...

Re: overdrive

Pertronix recommends a resistor which Cecil did not use with no adverse effects. I used it and it works fine. It just keeps the coil grounded for a fraction of a second so there is no fire to the...

Re: overdrive

I'm running a pertronix with electronic ignition. I just had to install a resistor in line with the grounding circuit of the kickdown switch. Nothing else is affected.

Re: 49 Flathead starting problem

I have seen where setting motors with dry cylinders failed to start. A little oil in the spark plug hole to seal the rings did the trick. You may have stuck valves as well. A leakdown test will...
