Re: OK,I wanna change my......

My suggestion: remove hood and stone guard and lean rad and shell forward and just see if it will come out without hurting the fins. If too tight, pull the rad.
You did not say why you have to...

Re: Front Brake, Questions

The A was designed as a rear skid car. I would stick with that and follow the service bulletins.

Posts from an I phone

When I make a post from my I phone, it does not get into the system. Do I have my settings wrong? This note is not from the phone.

Re: Installing Battery Disconnect Switch in 1931 Coupe

For those of you who pull the fuse often, those rivets will loosen and kill your engine. That fuse holder was not designed to be a switch with high usage.

Re: head wedges

Yes, make them from h/wood. Take your time and don’t pinch your fingers. As soon as you get it a little up, slide some blocks under it. It can flatten your fingers

Re: Emergency brake issues

Same thing happened to me when I put new linings on. They are too thick. Look for that. It may be your problem.

Re: Water output casting sealing gasket or no gasket?

Just use a little RTV and stop at 45 ft # on those two nuts. They break a lot. Be tender and no gasket.

Re: Throttle/stalling issues

Just watch and see if the mechanism moves the throttle blade. Something maybe broken or a pin sheared at the base of the rod. It’s all simple. Just watch everything work.

Re: Throttle/stalling issues

Watch the throttle lever on the carb while someone else moves the throttle lever. Should be simple to fix. Make sure everything is tight around the carb. Good luck.

Re: Squealing engine

When that happens, I have seen it get so hot that the cam melts the point arm rubbing block and closes up the points.

Re: Radiator repair shop near Venice, Florida

See if they will remove the top tank and rod it out. I bet they won’t. No one wants to mess with that top tank.

Re: OK! Oldtimers, Gimme your best answer, Stuck Engine

I hope you have already tried to turn it with the starter removed, or at least, try to turn the engine backwards before you take much apart. Third gear, push backwards.

Re: Starter Switch troubles

Take your old one apart. There is not much to it. Just make sure the hot parts can not be grounded. You may be able to fix it, or at least understand how it works. Don't be afraid to get in there...

Re: Ignition, way of

Search YouTube for How to time a Model A. That should help. Good luck and welcome.
