Re: Replacing only the main leaf spring with a new one?

As stated earlier, you and I seem to not be on the same plane.

I would just add that a broken main leaf in either a front or rear spring has the potential to create a REAL problem. Someone that...

Re: Update on transmission plug

Transmission fluid?

600w transmission oil needed. I use half STP and half 600w oil from suppliers.

I would leave plug out and let drain for a couple of days before refilling with new oil.

Re: VIN number 1930-A

I disagree with your concern. I do agree that some uninformed buyers might walk away but that would be because they really don’t understand what a bonded title is.

There is really no difference...

Re: VIN number 1930-A

There is a really big misunderstanding of how bonded titles work.

After the required bonding time, 3 to 5 years, you can go to DMV and get a regular clear title. If you want to sell your car...

Re: VIN number 1930-A

California bonds titles, there are also instructions as to how you sell a car with a bonded title before the three year term.

You have to check the regulations, bonded titles are there for a very...

Re: MMO non believers

4 oz. for 10 gallons in gas.

A little more or less seems not to matter.

Wait and see what it will do for noisy valves.

Re: VIN number 1930-A

It is my understanding that this car has no visible “Part Number”. There were no VIN’s at the time of our Model A’s.

A bonded title should allow them to register the car without taking the car...

Re: VIN number 1930-A

Bonded title. End of story. There are a number of states that do not issue a title to cars over a certain age. California DMV is fully aware of this. Read there regulations, one of there answers...

Re: Choke to start all the time?

Our 29 Sport Coupe has always been that way.

Runs great, new Zenith carb, everything new or rebuilt, but needs choke to start.

Re: Analyze this . . .

Loading up. I was asking if the car seemed to hesitate (not firing on all cylinders) as you accelerate.

If you think it is performing well. Than I would try a hotter spark plug first.

Re: Oil pump rebuild

Baffle can be removed. I just turn pan over and drop on news paper. It pops out. Do not drop from to high, you don’t want to damage.

2300 mile oil pump rebuild? Should not need it, but why...

Re: Analyze this . . .

What setting is your spark plug gap, 35?

They do look like your running mixture is to rich. How did the engine perform on your 14 mile run?

Does your engine feel like it is loading up when you...

Re: Must replace timing gear

Easy job. Taking the old nut off is the biggest problem. I would replace nut as mentioned above. I would also use fiber gear not metal. Enjoy,

Re: What revs at 60MPH

60 plus years of owning Model A’s and I have never been over 50 mph, never.

Re: Air Maze Air Filter on Zenith Carb Question

I would take this advise ASAP.

Ours has been on for over 40 years. No problems.

1/4 turn is also really good sign. Enjoy.

Re: Sagging Front Spring.

My advice would be to replace front spring with a correct USA made one.

How would your TV recliner feel after 90 years of use. 24/365 not just 5 to 10? Enjoy.

Re: 4 Blackened Spark Plugs?

Many years ago I picked up a set of spark plugs at NAPA for our 1929. The counterman didn’t give me the correct plugs. They looked and fitted fine but they fouled within just a few miles. Not...
