Re: Speaking of Auto Part Stores I'll share my experience.

I firmly believe in supporting the local businesses any time you possibly can like Alaska Mike.

Our local Ford dealer, like most dealerships, sponsors and donates so much time and money to local...

Re: ANYONE?? Class, class ANYONE???

Like Jay, if my cars are going to be sitting any length of time I take a battery cable off, only takes a half minute and you don't have to think about an electrical glitch or a fire.

Re: Model A Wheel Colors company

I'd feel the same way bud, No they need to refund your $$ and you can find another source. They can't be the only game in town.

Re: Question about distributor/condenser for Ford Model A - 1930

That is the route I would go too. An A&L condensor and the original point setup. The originals are so much easier to set the point gap than the 'modern' type.

I had a modern type setup, it was...

Re: Voltage regulator for generator

I'll second that. They are hard to beat with an original properly restored cutout, or a diode cutout either way. Using a diode cutout you have to snip a small wire on the EVR. Tom sends an...

Re: 1936 Ford pickup restoration

I remember your truck. It was really sharp!! I only wish I had been the one who bought it. Hope they kept it original and didn't chop it up.

Doing well, right now it's too hot in NW Illinois to drive it much, waiting for cooler days:)

Re: Hagerty Ford Model A home garage project

Fun to watch and I appreciate this guy's enthusiasm. Neat video.

I WOULD be leary of those 1972 Rick's spindles kits that he showed. Luckily Dad wrote this info on the box.

I'd be more apt to...

Re: 1936 ford pickup

THAT is a sharp '36. Hard to beat the '35 and '36 Ford pickups and trucks. Beautiful to look at just sitting still.

Re: Marvel Schebler carb pouring gas

Agree. I have one of Jim's MS carbs and it is great, he is a good guy knows his stuff and stands behind his work. I'd highly recommend him to anyone in the Model A community:)

Re: LeBarron Bonney name bought by Ekler's

Hate to say it but I believe anyone who is owed money or parts is just going to be SOL.

I wouldn't hold my breath expecting any kind of refund.

Re: Will turn over but won't start

Also I assume that when you take the distributor cap off, you see the rotor turning while somebody cranks the engine. If not you probably have a bad timing gear. Elementary but good idea to check.

Re: Model A service Bulletins complete book the yellow one

I bought that book when I was a Senior in H.S. back in the fall of '71. I used to take it to Study Hall to read.

Gee it probably cost 4 bucks...

I believe Bratton's are having new tubes made out of fresh materials not the re-hashed stuff. They say they are the best. Probably where Bert's gets theirs.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Terry this may be a stupid question, but will the new engine HAVE to run a filter?

Re: Points & condenser

Bill I did the exact same thing, for the exact same reasons and never looked back.

Sometimes modern type improvements ain't all that grand I have found.
