Re: Model A Built by a 90 yr old man

I'd take it. It's definitely one of a kind.

Re: How to disassemble hand throttle lever

May need to replace the spring at the bottom end of the lever. That'll give it some extra pull down to the column notches.

Re: gas tank welt

I also used the stapled on strip method. It was still a booger but it worked. I wouldn't want to make a living putting in tank welt.

Re: I know this is crazy-but what do you folks think it's worth?

I'd pay $2,200 in a minute. Play with it as is for a while. Then start figuring what kinda body I want. Great start.

Re: Squealing fan belt driving me CRAZY

Is by any chance the belt adjusted too loose. I don't have this problem on my A, but I have a 79 pick up and it did exactly the same thing you described when the belt was loose. Took up the slack and...

Re: New to Board need info on 30 model A pickup conversion

What a job. Walk into a shed and be told "can you get her running"? I couldn't wait for my next day of work. Can't wait for pic's. Sounds like a cool project.

Re: A new member

Would be great if you can drain and seal the tank. Of all the tasks I've done working on Ol Walter, removing and re installing the tank was my least favorite.

Re: My son texted me this picture, taken on the 5 freeway on Sunday night.

I'm almost positive that I saw this Hack in Visalia Ca. a couple of years ago . A Model A group had Visalia as a overnight stop on one of their cross California trips.
