Re: Banger posi traction

I probably have a set of welded differential (spider) gears that I used when we were dirt track racing Model-As. Let me know if you need a set.

Re: Model A Woody

I do have a sample in the shop now, -and if I could ever get inside the Benson Library again, I could get many of the drawing to make accurate pieces. From what I have been told, several pieces that...

Re: Consensus of opinion

Unfortunately, that is not the case around here. New Delco 10SI units are being manufactured by DB Electric in China however no big-box parts stores carry them in-stock, ...especially ones with a 6v...

Re: Consensus of opinion

Vern, everything is relative. A stock Model-A generator is really not that difficult to maintain. The reason that Model-A generators fell from use and alternators stepped in for use was due to poor...

Re: Do you take your Model A to the local self serve car wash?

I don't go to the car wash because we have a steam cleaner at the shop. I just don't run the boiler but use the high pressure water. With me at the shop, if I get the electrical a little wet, I am...

Re: Fender patch

That is correct. Ford originally used 020 gauge but it is thinner today, -and will even be thinner when it has been formed. Below is Ford's specifications.

Re: Antique Engine Rebuilding

Re: Two Shock Absorber Question

Re: Fender patch
