Re: time for new starter brushes I suppose

Thanks, but I now believe that the starter is ok. I have started the car several times yesterday and today and all seems well. I think a visitor, possibly by accident, fully advanced the timing the...

lifter question thread

What happened to the thread about changing lifters from the guy with an attitude? I was curious to see how it went.:D
It might have been on another I frequent.

Re: time for new starter brushes I suppose

I will be removing the starter from our early '28 Coupe tomorrow to get it rebuilt. The engine block has been replaced at some point with a '30 model block. I hope the early multi-plate clutch was...

time for new starter brushes I suppose

A couple of days ago when I tried to start our '28 Coupe it turned slowly as if the battery was very low. I tried charging the battery today and had it checked to find it was good and fully charged....

Re: Ford Model A Coolant Overflow Tank

Someone had rigged up an overflow on our '28 Sport Coupe when I bought it by attaching an anti-freeze jug to the firewall with wire ties and connecting a hose. I removed it on the way home and...

Re: pinto engine on model A

Best solution would be... get a Pinto with a Pinto engine in it. And drive the Pinto.

Re: Low to High Gear

Our '21 Touring did the same when I first started driving it.

No more...It either got "broke in" or I learned how to drive it. Just saying...

Re: installing new valves

That's why I took my valves to the machine shop to have them "cut".

Re: installing new valves

I'm sure not going to change lifters. That would be a big job.

installing new valves

I have 8 new valves for our '21 Touring. What a pain to install! The engine has adjustable lifters that require three 3/8 wrenches to adjust. I have three wrenches and a feeler gauge but I only have...

Model A generators

Will all Model A generators, except the early Powerhouse generators interchange if you use the complete generator including the pulley and cutout?

caution- generator problems may be contagious

The generator has not worked on our '21 T Touring in the 3 years that we've had the car. I've been just charging the battery about once a month and putting off getting it fixed, but now the generator...

Re: #1 cylinder not doing it's share

I took my eight new valves to the machine shop and left them to get .025 ground off the stems, then I rewatched Mike Bender's video on installing valves and he said the norm is to remove .100 when...

Re: #1 cylinder not doing it's share

I have eight new valves now but have not yet removed all the old ones. The ones I have removed and checked with a new one don't have enough clearance even with the adjustable lifters run all the way...

Re: NC? Request for Antique Vehicle exam

We bought our Model T three years ago from someone in TN so it had to be inspected by the NCDMV. No big deal. A young lady came to the house, looked at the numbers on the engine then punched a few...

Re: #1 cylinder not doing it's share

The one valve that I ordered finally came. It fits the stem fine. I think the adjustable lifter will take up enough so I won't have to grind the stem. If not I will take all the new valves , when I...

Re: #1 cylinder not doing it's share

Looks like I'll be replacing all the valves with new ones and I will be grinding the stems to fit, although I have adjustable lifters. I wonder if I can get a new stone for my bench grinder that will...
