Re: Your best method for drilling out rivets?

I do the same. Use a small drill smaller than rivet to start and then expand to a bigger one but not to big. Then punch out.

Re: Water Pump Removal

It also may depend on the type of radiator you have. My radiator is a heavy duty one and the water pump nut up front if 1/8 inch from the radiator. But never had it overheat!

Re: Whistling sound when clutch is not engaged

Take the fan belt loose from generator and fan and see if it still has noise. If it doesn't change, then it is not in this area. (but don't forget to put it back on)

Re: point gap ??

Ken, I am confused and not a great Model A guy but it would seem like you should set the can when the points just touch the LOW part of the cam rather than the HIGH point. Am I all messed up in my...

Isn't there two types of carbs. One just having the casting that the GAV screws into and the other having a fitting down inside that the GAV matches with. It would seem like the one without the...

Re: Kewanee Green, cant find it anywhere.

Just go to a good paint store and have them match a paint to the area you want to touch up. Will cost you a fortune but it works

Re: Rear-end oil fill

I do the same-buy the stuff in the squeeze bottle. Or get a squeeze bottle and use it. This method works great for both the rear end and getting to the tranny hole.
