Re: Zenith or Tillotson

I bought a new Zenith... once. It ran so lean my plugs were white. Even after installing Renner's flowed jets it ran too lean.

Finally traced it to the throttle shaft. It was so loose an oversize...

Re: Shift Lever Drawing

Re: GAV needle threads... unique to this component?

Jim, would the Zenith drawings be at Benson Ford Archives since the Zenith carb was made by an outside source and not Ford? Something like Houdaille Shock?

Re: GAV needle threads... unique to this component?

They used the " X 24 thread GAV but they also used metric threads in the Zenith, for example 5mm X .75 Compensator jet. I never said the " X 24 was the equivalent of a 6mm X 1.

I was pointing...

Re: GAV needle threads... unique to this component?

Isn't it odd that they would use both standard and metric threads on a Zenith. I'm sure there is an old dead engineer someplace laughin' his ass off.

Re: Car died, no start

7" of vacuum seems low to me, could be manifold/carb gasket or heaven forbid, jumped valve timing (cam gear). Just throwing it out there, something to think about.

Re: U-Joint Inspection for Vibration

Looks pretty normal to me as long as there is not axial play. Was the retaining bolt tight? There is a bearing in the torque tube just aft of the speedo gear you might check while you are there.

Re: Torque Tube Bolts

Kurt, I am not familiar with the V8 but the Model A does not have a passage either on the banjo or the torque tube.

Re: Torque Tube Bolts

What is the cutout in the torque tube gasket for? And what position do you put it in, if it matters? I does not match up with anything on the flanges. I notice most of the gaskets from vendors do...

Re: Neat old film from the Ford Archives

Neat old film. When Ol' Henry was first seen with his quadracycle they kind of insinuated that his was the first, which it wasn't. Good film anyway.

Re: Manifold Gland Rings

I have heard the same as redmodelt. And redmodelt makes a valid point. Why did they continue to machine the blocks and manifolds if only used in 1928?

Thumbs up Re: Port & Polish Engine

I believe you are the only one that can edit your title. Perhaps you mistakenly hit the down thumb button? (notice my up thumb).



Only porting I would suggest is opening up the 'A' manifold...
