Takes a lot of effort, and some thought to make a video. It is also a learning, and improving process. My advice is keep at it. One day we may reach the level of those mentioned above, until that...

Re: A Very Busy Thanksgiving

There is an entry in the service bulletins that addresses rerouting the battery cable that includes a bracket bolted to the flywheel housing.
November 1929, page 395 in the service bulletins.

Re: pinpointing month date-of-assembly

As much accuracy as you can accumulate.
Ran into some details like yours dating tops and bottoms of zeniths.
Asking for steve's help was a good thing.
His articles are through.

Re: pinpointing month date-of-assembly

That is putting a fine point on it. Estimating by average production for a day would be my approach.

Also the throw of the linkage may be wrong.

Re: Removing rust from engine

Another consideration is if you are going to that much trouble, the engine compartment can be detailed to restoration standards with correct fasteners, and finish.

Re: A New Winter House for My "A"

Watch out for condensation.
The concrete pad should help.
On my wish list.
The she who must be obeyed must be a Midwest expression. I've heard it before.

Re: What am I missing? 1930 Model A

Plugged exhaust pipe would do it until the fuel caught and blew off the muffler.
Depend on where the car lived since it went to sleep.
Putting eyes on the car would help.

Correct. Centering by counting turns is approximate.

Re: 2 tooth adjustment

I seem to remember that #3, the sector mesh is tightest in the center, not the other way around. Might want to take note of that.

Re: clutch problem

With the model a problems that crop up, suggest you attack one problem at a time as you have done. Very easy to delve into several areas at once.

Re: Why are there so many more 1930 grill shells than 1931s?

And there were several versions.
The pickups, and maybe the exports would use up carryovers.
And if you got what was in a small town show room there would be variants.
Remember the roads were hard...

After the stock market crash in 1929, and also, the dust bowl of the Midwest, killed the demand and few fords were made in 1931.
