Re: Batt. Supercharger

Would the extra length of the manifold have an effect? Sort of the same theory of a high rise manifold. I don't see any notable performance from an original manifold.

Re: Batt. Supercharger

I am concerned about the vanes of the inner cone breaking of and being sucked into the valves and cylinders. They look like they are made from a thin sheet of brass.

Re: Batt. Supercharger

Yep...That's about it. Just an adornment. The inner cone might make a difference. I suppose one could be fabricated. I doubt it would live up to the claims in the advertisement.

Re: Batt. Supercharger

Like JW Hash mentioned. I am running a Bat Supercharger on my 28 Roadster without the inner cone. I tried to post an image but for some reason it won't let me select a file from my computer.

Re: Picture perfect

My grandfather was 50 years old when the stock market crashed. Lost the farm, never recovered. I remember going to visit him in the 60's, the shack that he lived in and the pain on his face when my...

Re: Model A as a mobile studio

I agree with Marty. What a waste of time just to get someone's opinion of a taco. It's typical for this day and time.

Re: Will I fit in a Roadster??

I'm 6'1" 230 lbs with a 38"hamburger belly. You'll learn the trick to get in and out of it. It would be a problem if I had side mounted spares. Like Jim said, avoid pulling on the steering wheel...

Re: Unauthorized accessories

I saw this advertisement for the "Bat" Super-Charger in "Those Wonderful Unauthorized Accessories". While at Hershey a few years back, I noticed one in a rusty pile of parts. Twenty dollars and it...

Is there a way to take the ends off of the rod, shorten the rod and re-install the end?

Re: Who's running a Marvel/Schebler carb?

I'm running a Marvel/Schebler carb on my 28 roadster. I have not experienced any "vapor lock" type symptoms like I did with a Zenith. Here is my roadster configured with a "Bat" super-charger and a...

Re: Recap of the "Let's get personal" thread

It is interesting to see the numbers crunched. I would like to see it again in years to come to see how it changes.

Re: OK! Let's get personal!

I'm 59 years old.

It looks like folks in their 70's are the majority.

Re: The driving experience

Hawaii, What a neat place that would be to drive a Model A. I'm laid up with a sore throat and snotty nose in cold and wet North Carolina.

Re: OT: Is a 'themed' shop necessary to a (potential) customer??

I think a showroom is a good idea. It does not have to be just completed cars on display. You're a restoration shop. Potential customers are interested in your process of restoring. Why not...

Re: Charlotte

I will be there, Green Field QG-106. This week I need to get my parts together to take. I'm not sure what I have. I know I have a set of rumble seat springs.

Re: Lovely Old Photo of Model A

Looks like a 19" spare. I can't tell about the passenger side wheels.
