Re: Alternatives to the spring-loaded LT connection at distributor?

Re: Comprehesive howto for brakes?

And I would probably do just that, if my car were fresh from the factory and hadn't been owned by 40 different people before I bought it and if it wasn't 90+ years old.

Re: Marvel Mystery Oil in Crankcase

You are absolutely right. There is no proof and I doubt anyone here has the inclination or resources to finance a study on it. I don't use it in the engine, but I do add a little to the gas. I think...

Re: How Many Model A's Are There Now?

We have 65 members and over 100 cars. My guess is close to 125 cars is more accurate. But that's just club members. Lots who have cars are not in the club.

Re: Adjust speedometer from miles to km/hour

One of the guys here went to set a 1932 Convertible and found it to be a 1931 Cabriolet. There were several things odd about it and he inquired of the owner. Seems the current owner bought it in...

Re: Cleaning parts

I use diesel in a sealable tub and my wife's toothbrush while she's out shopping. I have to rinse it out really well before I put it back.

Re: New Manufactured Zenith Carburators

Re: My Distributor Cam Screw is Stuck

Re: My Distributor Cam Screw is Stuck

Regardless of the current condition of the timing, at some point down the road, and probably on the side of the road, that cam screw will need to be loosened. Much better to do it in your shop than...

Re: Preston “ALL VEHICLES” Antifreeze

Try a farm supply. Always have it for old farm equipment and they generally are fairly inexpensive for those thrifty farmers.
