Re: Power shut-off switch

I have mine on the ground side and believe that is the preferred way.

Re: over running carburetor ?

Check the shut off valve under the tank for seepage. Disconnect the line to the carburetor and place a container under the line. Leave it for a while to see if the valve leaks.

I have found in the...

Re: overheating

I think it was the other way around, the blown head gasket caused the foaming of the antifreeze. I think I would have re-torqued the head a that point before it got any worse.

Re: genius battery tender

I'm a little slow today. My response was about a Battery Tender®. But now I realize you were asking about a Genius battery maintainer. Different animal.

Battery Tender® is a trademark of Deltran.

Re: Convert horn 6 volt to 12 volt

Just a thought, if your horn doesn't work on 12v it is not going to work on 6v thru the resistor. Either something is wrong with the horn or you need to adjust and lube it.

Re: Gas mileage question

I can not comment on what is "normal" or what others get but I get about the same as you, 15-16 mpg. Many factors effect mileage. Have fun driving your Model A and don't worry about it.

Re: Best choke for downdraft carb?

Thanks Jim. I worded my response incorrectly. I meant in a non-stock installation. Like I mentioned I didn't understand.

Probably would have been better if I didn't respond at all. :p:p

Re: Best choke for downdraft carb?

I think CarlG is using the hole for the vacuum line for the wipers. That saves drilling a hole, as long as you don't have vacuum wipers.

I don't believe I have ever seen a Stromberg 97 that had anything but a cable.I guess I don't understand what you are asking.

Re: Model A Woody

Do you want to change it to a station wagon or another body type, like a coupe?

Re: Consensus of opinion

Kurt, just curious. How many miles do you put on your Model A compared to your van? I have a similar experience, but I will anmit I put a lot more miles on my van than I do my Model A.

Re: Re-torquing head bolts

That's cool. I have never seen instructions come with a head gasket. May I ask what brand that is/was? Thanks.

Re: What is this carb?

That is a Marvel Schebler. Also sold by Sears as an Allstate. And by parts stores as a Johnson.

The Marvel was a aftermarket replacement for the Zenith. I believe it even had a Ford Part number.

Re: Help - Front End is Off Center

If you have the radiator out you should be able to see the center bolt in the front crossmember.

Re: Help - Front End is Off Center

By right side tie rod do you mean the right side of the wishbone? If so, are both sides equal length? There is only one tie right, no right or left.

Well as you can see from my picture, with Bratton's stationary block cures the problem with no modification to the upper plate.

I used an adjustable flasher to cure my issues with my LEDs. They are 12v tho. I only mention this to possibly help any members with 12v flasher issues.
