Re: Separating Control Rod from Control Arm

The quadrant, were the spark/gas rods ride on is a press fit. I used a piece of 2" sch 80
ABS and trimmed to fit the quadrant and tapped it DOWN. That relieves some of the pressure on the bushing....

Re: Modern one piece valve guide removal

The Bronze liners should have been done first..!
If you remove the guides,..you will need to do another valve job!

Re: odd rear brake drum 30 coupe

You DON'T HAVE AN "AR" brake system...!!
You have a normal brake system for a Model A. An "AR" brake drum will
NOT fit.........the brake drum you have will work.

Re: Roadster top questions? ASAP please!!

There IS a difference between a 1928 and a 1929...!
I got this information from Marco. I think it's the heights of the center OR back bows.

Re: touring cam improvements?

Pete and Jim,

Most people neglect the springs, they use the old ones. IF you put new springs with more
pressure...it will run great. The valves and lifters have to follow the cam..!

Re: Cubic Inches

I've built lots of engines, both over square and under square,...the short strokers ran
better. I also thought about building a short stroke Model A with about a 3.750" stroke,
that would make 177...
