Re: Tire wheel balancing: is it needed ?

Tire shops probably don't want the liability and they even get picky on using plugs to patch tire leaks these days. Your best bet is to find someone in a local club to either weld up the wheel or...

Re: Can you hot wire a model A?

Yes, the coil with the ignition switch turned off will show power to both sides of the coil. One may need to know how to read a schematic or understand basic electricity to know why. First, the...

Re: Shut Off Valve Leaking

If you use the teflon tape, you will probably want the stuff that is made for gasoline. I think that is yellow colored as opposed to regular white.

Re: Shut Off Valve Leaking

I first bought an inexpensive kit and that really didn't work well, so I bought a new valve. Whether you do a kit or a new valve, you need to drain the tank and you will get a little more gas that...

Re: Help she no go....

Make sure the rotor points to #1 at the same time the timing gear is set for the dimple. I once assumed that just because I took the distributor out and put it back in that nothing could go wrong. ...

Re: Clutch Pedal Free Play

Also, if you changed the clutch, did you remember those two little shims that go between the block and the flywheel housing on the top two bolts? Those are important and are known to cause the...

Re: Clutch Pedal Free Play

There has been a lot written about transmissions jumping out of gear. Most of what I have read centers around the shift tower. The little ball at the end of the shift lever wears against the shift...

Re: Will not start

I hesitate posting for fear that it will sound blunt. But here goes. Too many things have changed since the original problem. Rather than just shooting from the hip and replacing everything, we...

Re: Any recourse for this recurring scam

Recourse? I think your recourse is to stay away from them and don't fall for it. There will never be an end to people trying to separate others from their money. Unfortunately!

Re: Coolant Seep on Head

I have the same issue with stud #2 (referring to the Les Andrews torque chart). Just a little bit of coolant weeping up around the threads. Head nut is nice and tight, and torqued to specs. Engine...

Re: Bolt oreintation on the Model A/AA Fords...

On my '29 with the early tail light, I put the two bolts that hold the license plate bracket to the cast iron arm so that you see the heads when looking at it from the rear. In other words, the nuts...

Re: Gap between door opening and seat

I am glad those laws aren't on the books any longer. Getting in to the bucket seats of a Tudor from the passenger side would be difficult because you can't easily slide over.

Re: Gas shutoff valve

I drained the tank into a gas can from the gas line by disconnecting from the carb. I have a pencil filter so of course there is some left when it is otherwise drained. then, inside the car, I took...

Re: 1928/29 header wood steam bent or sawed

Lots of steps, valleys, humps and curves on a 29 Tudor header wood. I really suspect they were sawn, routed and sanded. They do take a bit of "adjusting". I bought mine from a supplier and I did...

Re: Shift lever and fork size - absolute or relative?

Relative, to a degree.

Look at it this way. Strive for absolute, but at the end of the day, getting it as close as you have it, I would probably call it good. You don't want the shifter to be so...

Re: Small circuit breaker heats and opens

It could be a load that is not a dead short, but enough to trip the breaker. Does the wire get hot or warm too, or is it cool and only the breaker getting warm? How many amps does the ammeter show...
