Re: Jerky Runner

Thanks, good information.
I use no crap gas in my rigs and that seems to work out great. So I think in the future I do need to use the MMO as you mentioned. Because I do leave my rigs in the shop...

Re: Jerky Runner

Well I took the old jerky runner out for a drive today. About 2 weeks after the MMO treatment in the cylinders. It started better than it ever did, after warming up (46 degrees around here today)...

Re: Jerky Runner

I also think I need to change the engine oil after this situation because I did put a liberal amount of MMO in the spark holes. I am sure a lot of it got in the engine oil. Maybe that is good for...

Re: Removing rear spring

It can be done but take the advise above. It can be a "widow" maker.

Re: Jerky Runner

Mark, the MMO idea sounds good. Will have to do. But I think the parades may go. Hard on the old rig, clutch etc. So think I will watch parades instead of being in them!

Re: Timing/Spark control arm

On my two "29" A's, the spark lever notch arms seem to be different. One is much longer than the other. Is this the difference between a 28/29 and a 30/31? I think maybe my 29 std coupe may have a...

Re: Where to start?

BTW Les Andrews book 1 is a good one to get. It gives you basic stuff about an A. Most arts vendors carry it.

Re: Wheel painting

I have done both methods of painting, powder and paint. Like mentioned, I think I like the paint idea better that the powder because it can be redone when needed. But both my rigs are drivers so...

Re: Distributor help

I agree. Replace the distributor. Sounds like you need a different one. You can buy good ones on Ebay or Bert's have very good rebuilt ones.

Re: Swapping engines, any tips?

If you also swap out the transmission, make sure the rear part that bolts onto the rear end is the same as the one you took out. There are two different ones with different holes in them.

Re: Zenith carburetor rebuild?

You may want to send it to Bert's in Denver and have it rebuilt. Very good quality shop.

Re: Spinning stud on rear wheel

I also used the Dremel tool. It worked great. But watch so you do not cut your rim.

Re: Map software

Better check out your GPS reception for where you plan to go unless you use the "old" maps from AAA.

Re: installed a new 6:1 head now a tapping noise

Not knowing what I am talking about, but if it has adjustable valves in it, does one or more of them need adjusting??? Additional compression may have activated this click.

Re: WTB KR Wilson Engine Stand

I have a Harbor Freight one that I made a bracket for to hold my engine. Worked great. Think I saw one on their adds for 50 or 60 bucks.

Re: Need some expertise in identifying a wagon

Here is a picture of our huckster. It is made with a Lentville A's body. This body I understand was made similar to the York-Hoover body.
