Re: Speedo is “jumpy”

You can over tighten the cable where it goes into speedometer. If it is to tight, the cable is pressing to hard against inner drive and will effect how the speedometer reacts. It will jump around...

Re: 1930 Model A Head Puller

If your having a problem removing the head on a Model A, try loosing all the head nuts. Leave spark plugs in. Leave ignition off. Hit starter. Head should pop up. Enjoy.

Re: How low the oil level in the gear box?

Gearbox, transmission? Fill to just below the filler hole.

Rear end. Fill to just under filler nut when you put your finger in.

We use 50/50 STP and 600w oil. Enjoy.

Re: Would you run new 1980s tyres

I was also thinking that the tubes could also be from the 80’s or even earlier.

Unfortunately, I have had a first hand experience with the drivers side rear wheel blowing out after we put on the...

Re: Would you run new 1980s tyres

I would be concerned only because of the age.

How do you drive and use your car. If it’s a parade car, that is also driven to the local car show and not driven over 40 or on the highway. Than I...

He is telling you it’s a Model A Ford?

No matter what anyone thinks of motive or knowledge. Listing is “Wrong”.

I just asked the same question. 60 years of owning these cars, never knowingly have had a balance problem.

Re: Wheel Balance with Dyna Beads

I feel like I am missing something here.

I have never had to balance a tire on any of the Model A’s that we have owned. I do stay under 50 mph. Is this a known problem or does balancing just...

Re: How much grease in the clamshell?

I have had to put in up to one full tube of John Deere Cornhead Grease. I guess it all depends on how long it has been since the last time it was serviced.

Be careful with the nuts on speedo...

Re: axle key

I agree. If key is removed/broken and torque on taper is to loose, car will not move. If torqued properly, car will still move even without key. However, the axel will eventually start...

Re: axle key

One of the great things about this forum is all the different views members have and sometime voice.

I guess you could refer to the rear axel key as a “shear key”, but I don’t believe that is...

Re: axle key

I don’t know about the Ford name on keys, but please don’t forget to re-torque the axel nuts to 100 foot pounds when you put it back together. Enjoy.

Re: Oil on Spark Plug

Just replace the plugs and cross your fingers.

You might not have to fix something that isn’t broken. Enjoy.

Re: Engine oil measuring rod

To get it truly correct. You have to add 4 1/2 quarts of oil at oil change.

1/2 quart is left in dipper tray at time of oil change. Engine takes 5 quarts if your system where completely dry. ...

Re: Best lubrication for transmission ?

We have been using 50/50 mix of STP and 600w oil from Mac’s.

The last bottle of 600w oil that we received from Mac’s looked and felt like STP.

Toggle switches have standard mounting hole sizes.

1/2 inch for most. If your hole is that size, mostlikely cut for a toggle switch.
