Re: New Battery

If you have a Rural King close by, there Group-1 battery sells for $39.99 made by Exide.

https://www.ruralking.com/battery-6v-625-cca.html

It's going to be hard to beat that price or value.

Re: Best Anti-Freeze

Any kind of antifreeze in the crankcase is harmful as it will erode any type of bearing material.

For polling purposes, I like the old fashioned ethylene glycol mixed with distilled water.

Heat Is Not Your Friend

Re: Radial tires

In stock form, I do not think the weight of a Model A and cruise speed are enough to cause concern.

At idle, there isn't enough heat or velocity to completely burn off all the oil. Take it for a drive and that will clean them up.
