Re: V8 Clutch for model A

I have been using a lightened flywheel and v8 clutch for many years, and love it. The car spools up much faster when taking off from a light, and it requires much less pedal effort to press the...

Re: Overheating 1930 Model A

Bergs is the best on the market hands down.

But I would not spend a dime yet because i don't think you have a problem.

If you can get your car around 190 degrees whether going down the...

Re: Tie down wheels or axles when towing

Why don't you cross tie? What is the disadvantage in doing this.

That is what I have been doing for both the front and rear.

Re: Can't get engine started after changing timing gear

Curious, does it matter what side of the meter post that you attach both wires to?

I also don't understand. What is actually happening when you join both wires on a single post?

Re: engine compression

For a good approximate way to get what your number should be, number do this.

14.7x the head ratio number.

Example: 14.7 x 6.1=89.67 psi or 14.7x 4.2=61.74psi.

Re: Bang in the exhaust

Remove your fan belt and start the car. It will be easier to hear and see leaks.

Re: crank pulley removal

Re: Brake return spring addition

JD, I can't tell either from the pic. Let me ask you. Does the brake pedal return quickly after you release it?

If it does then the spring is correct.

Rotten Rotor from Rotorville!

Here is an interesting one. Has anyone ever come across this before?

I came across that #2 cylinder was not firing. Exchange plugs, distributor cap, metal wires, and still the same issue.

Re: Distributor rotor

That is dead on perfect.

While you are at it, you should check the space between each post to the end of the rotor. Should be about .025. Every time you change a rotor or dist cap the gap will...

Just so I undestand. Do you mean you are putting a jumper on both the driver and passenger side of the dogbones?

Re: Brake and parking wires pulled off light switch on 31

OK, I see the wiring diagram now. I didn't think of looking at it until you mentioned it Patrick.

It looks like the brake light switch goes directly to the battery post, so it’s always hot.

Re: Brakes !

Patrick that's awesome.

Really, how many people can say that about their brakes? That's the way that they should work.

I have a road behind my house that is paved and never has traffic on it....

My brake and parking wires broke off the light switch on the steering column on my 31.

Interesting, i have not heard of the cut valve cover before.

1: Did it stop the oil splatter?

2: How high up did you cut the cover?

I ask because I need to do the same thing, but instead...
