Re: Brake return spring addition

The spring is intended to be hooked on the stock motor mount. If you have Float-A-Motor mounts you will have to figure something out as they don't accommodate it.

Re: Can somebody shed some light as to what these people are thinking?

Parking my roadster on the Levee here in SE Louisiana recently, I managed to get it stuck in the mud.

I couldn't find any fat girls to bounce in my rumble seat but I was able to spray mud all over...

Re: Engine dies

I left my key on once with the points closed and the coil got so hot I couldn't touch it. I let it cool down for a couple of hours and the car started right up.

I drove for about 5 blocks and it...

Re: Brake Pedal won't Return

This:

I once replaced my sagging rear motor mounts with float-a-motors and when I replaced my (homemade) floorboard the pedals no longer came all the way up and dragged against it.

Re: Shock Absorbers

I remember, back in the 60s, J C Whitney selling a type of "Friction Shock" which fit like originals but looked different.

Re: 1930 or 1931

That's very interesting. My car came from Michigan and had Roadster clearly denoted on the Michigan title.

Perhaps the PO had it titled before this practice.

Makes me wonder how they would...

Re: 1930 or 1931

Apparently the State of Louisiana didn't know what a "Roadster" was so they looked at the picture enclosed and titled my car as a Two Door.

I didn't want to open a can of worms trying to enlighten...

Re: aoogah horn connections

Mine installed from the bottom but I had to file the bullet ends a bit as they were oversized (as per Bratton's instructions).

aoogah horn connections

Does it matter which side the wires go on when connecting the horn from the wiring harness?

It's a new Sparton horn from Bratton's if that makes any difference. The instructions just say "Plug in...

Re: Repo Ammeter Innards

My original spontaneously caught on fire one day.

Sounded like Jolsen begging for a spare dime in the background.

Re: Just When You Thought You Had Seen It All...Model "A" Urn

I have already set my Model A on fire three times. I think I'll ultimately wind up in a Model A urn whether I want to or not.

Re: J. C. Whitney Catalog 1980 thru 1985

In the 60s I bought Model A parts from them. I remember buying a radiator ($60.00 I think) and a wiring harness. Both fit and worked well.

Re: Harris Coffee Table Book By MARC Update!

The price I was quoted included a bunch of magazine subscriptions I didn't want $177.00

I have only been a member of MARC for a few months. Not favorably impressed.
