Re: Electronic ignition advise

I get totally what you all are saying.

I guess the thing is most of us claim to be Model-A 'restorers', ...and Yes, most of us like to upgrade things to better our vehicles. I guess if someone...

Re: How do I

To begin with, Teflon tape (-or any type tape) is a 'no-no' in this area on fittings.

Re: Lightened Flywheel

I did not search for it, and was only working off of memory that you had asked something about it. The link I posted is the one I started several years ago.

Re: Electronic ignition advise

The logic behind this is indeed great. Yes, electronic ignition systems are everywhere. So with that said, everyone always seems to use the word "should" stating that "if" you make sure you have...

OK, let's back-up a bit on this. Many shops do not have the equipment to do this task correctly, -and there in itself can be things that will exacerbate the problem just as you are describing. When...

Re: What Model "A" Book Do You Read the Most?

I think the basic answer to your question comes first with how much experience someone has with a Model-A.

Re: 30-31 Roadster Top Rest Spacers Finish

I think that is part # A-20600 that has the French head. For all but F/Point, the repro in stainless will be satisfactory.
