Re: Copper head gasket or best Kevlar?

I know you guys are just trying to be helpful, and I thank you.

However, I am most positive that it is combistion gases blowing into the coolant. No question. That is fact. Otherwise, I...

Re: Model A cross-country migration

Thank you for doing the facebook page so we can follow along!

Trouble shifting into 2nd or 3rd- BUT.. Unique situation

I have a somewhat unique situation, seeking advice before I dig in.

Re: 1930 Blindback Restore to original?

Judging by the way the doors are hanging, that car is going to need wood replacement. Agreed, that one is going to be a money pit.

Re: If Henry was on Twitter would anyone like him?

Not only is Bert's Model A Center an excellent choice of aftermarket parts vendor, but they also sell an excellent rebuilt Zenith carbutetor.

Re: When is it time to sell?

Hey Dave,

Your club has a couple of really good Model A guys in it. All you need to do is pick up the phone. Maybe have some pizza and beverages for them. Just sayin.

Re: Front inner race turns on hub

Take the tin foil out immediately. It will compress, spread, then shred and fill your bearing with shrapnel.

The centerpunch idea works fine if the fit isn't too loose. Otherwise, change the...

Re: Remove mold

You can kill mold without bleach or chemicals. Use ozone. If you find an old ozone generator, you're all set. If not, you can build a Tesla coil and run it with the car in an enclosed area (drain...

Re: Lloyd Young Car Auction Today

Mecum seems to have struck the right balance as far as collector car auctions go. Even if we don't buy anything, we always have fun just because of the spectacle of it all!
