Re: Which Car-Like Vehicles Can Tow a Model A?

Weird how 'mericans need super heavy trucks to tow a car. We get by with a tandem (or single axle, but i don't like them as much) trailer and a little old hilux.

A decent odyssey should tow one.

Re: brake problem

Bonded is normally bad, although i had bonded stuff that was like cardboard. It had heaps of grip & made for amazing brakes. Last 10 months and it was worn out.
I then went to the truck shop &...

Re: What in Tarnation?

I noticed you appear to be posting the same video link over and over.
It's a video of a truck driving on a country road.

If you're wondering why it doesn't display in fordbarn as a little video...

Re: brake problem

If you cannot get good replacements any time soon. see if you can get replacement seals.
And if the bleed was not quite at the top, would it be possible to fill the offending air gap with epoxy?

Re: What are some of the counter intuitive things you have learned about a Model A?

Perfection.
It's a very precise machine, but not required to be as precise in most circumstance.

Taught myself to drive one of those when i was 12.
Didn't have access to the car. Just a book...

Re: Shock Absorber Fluid

As for stripped plugs, should the housing be stripped, dip the plugs in wax, and re-install them in a slightly cleaned housing with an epoxy akin to 'jb weld'.

Refill shocks as necessary.

Re: condenser re-locating to coil

All ignition coils spike up to near 80+ volts on the primary side so it's likely they would work fine.

Re: How to age Caledon tubing?

Yuck, use no corrosives or you might as well have used a line you found in a wreck in a forest.

I use linseed oil, leave item in the sun, or bake lightly after applying. You're not trying to cook...

Re: Solution for audio system in model A?

Re: Jack recall, chinese junk from Harbor Freight

Re: Hi all. New guy. Model A engine rebuilder questions.

I can tell you what modernization's to avoid.

Don't do 'modern' points plates.
Don't do modern seals on the rear main bearing.
Everyone i know that tried them, has regretted doing those.

Re: Solution for audio system in model A?

I often wanted to put one in an external truck on the back of the car.

Re: Cranking Then a Hard Stop...Then Cranks

If the hard stop is near TDC, it's probably the timing rater than a battery/starter.
