Re: Title change

Dennis: talk to a car title company. They may be able to get this done the way you would like. Phone call canít hurt.

Good luck, and enjoy your car.

Re: Cool running

I also start our car this way. Fresh tune with new plugs, or in need of adjustment. Has always needed a quick choke. Enjoy.

Re: Title change

I would think that if you have a frame that has a confirmed 1930 date stamped on it. No matter what body year, style, or make you put on it. Itís a 1930 by law.

Re: Got One - Now the VIN search

There was no such thing as a VIN in 1930.

Every car maker did their own think. Frame number was the most common but it might also have been the engine number.

It was not until the mid 50’s...

Re: Newby with a question - Castor angle

Bent or twisted axel.

When we had our 29’s front end rebuilt, wishbone would not go back together with the axel. Worn front end parts had allowed for the slack before rebuild. Once all that slack...

Re: Best cooling fan for best cooling?

To add to the confusion. Remember the Model A has a thermal syphon cooling system that starts at about 180 degrees and moves about 36 to 38 gallons of coolant per minute in a properly maintained...

Re: Model A engine removed

Have you rebuilt your front end, looked at your springs, this could be a good time.

You now have a big opening to help the work and a lot of weight removed.
