Re: 1930 Sport Coupe 11 MPG, backfire when turned off

Backfire is typically an indication of running lean. A little more GAV may help.

Don't get too crazy comparing your fuel economy to others. I track my mileage very carefully (I'm nutty that...

Re: Adjusting the Retard/Advance on the steering column

Just out of curiosity, do you have original style points of the "modern points?" In my opinion, the original style are easier to work with.

Re: Front License Plate Hitting Radiator

Front plates will sometimes turn and hit the radiator damaging the fins. Pop told me that many people would move the plate off center so that it would hit the radiator shell instead of the fins. ...

Re: Model A Tire Swing

That is excellent. I had one of those when I was a kid. It got a lot of use.

Re: Windshield Frame Press-In Nut

That is fascinating. I didn't realize that they press-in nuts were different by year. Yes, in fact, my 1930 got an incorrect 28/29 windshield sometime during its life. It took me a long time to...

Re: Windshield Frame Press-In Nut

I could never get them to seat right. After 80+ years the hole was worn. I couldn't figure out a way to tighten the hole so the press-in nut would hold tight. That thing is fighting lateral...

Re: Thump thump thump

I had a similar noise. It turned out to be a bad universal joint.

Re: brake light

Did you recently replace the switch? The reproductions are iffy at best. Also, if I remember right, the early switches were mounted as pull switches, and the later as push switches. Make sure it...

Re: Not running

Could be as simple as gas cap vent. Try running it with the gas cap off.

Re: What Year Is This Coupe ?

Not my style....at all, but the workmanship is stunning. Also, he did a remarkable job of having every piece compliment every other piece. It has a style consistency to it.

Re: spark plug caps

I have thought of doing something like that. I like your execution of it. It looks sharp. I may give that a try.

Re: Not Model A related!

Harbor Freight has an inexpensive plastic welder. It is like a soldering iron, but has a nice wide foot. I have had a lot of success with mine.

Re: Generator vs Alternator

I do a fair amount of night driving. I have an original generator. I have it adjusted just a little hotter than the books recommend, so I have greater output. I also use 32/50 bulbs. I think the...

Re: Rear Shocks

I also have the Ken Davis shocks on all four wheels. I am very happy with them. Check his website. I'm pretty sure he will sell just the rears.

Re: Model A Registration Woes

Yes, the rules are very state specific. Find out exactly what you need in the state of Maine (or the state you are registering in). I think that they are pretty easy.

Re: Using Ford Barn as an distraction
