Re: I need help to overhaul 7-tooth steering

Good evening all together.

Hallo Russ. I equalized the splines of teeth a bit. The old worm glides easily, the new worm is probably only by vigorous pressing on the splined shaft. Question: Does...

Re: update on getting dizzy after being under the A.

Hallo Dave,
I do not understand the sentence: 'Breaking out the water'.
That means perhaps 'tears'?

Re: update on getting dizzy after being under the A.

This is similar with me. It is named 'storage fraud' (?) / 'positional vertigo'?. These are wrongly sorted tiny crystal stones in the ear.

On the other hand, exercises help to tilt the upper body...

Re: What have you found working on your A?

Hallo,
when I got my roadster from California, I was the first to do all tin interiors wax sealing. Back at the bottom of the wheelhouse, I found a desert mouse that probably once had red fur.

Re: What have you found working on your A?

I had to have the Roadster hood fix the rear wood bow by a upholsterer master. He found this ticket rolled up inside the cloth rag.

Re: ROTELLA 15W 40 Oil

I would like to clarify something else:

No A-motor will be damaged if it is driven with "Rotella" for diesel engines. Everyday wear is no different.

I have a beautifully polished ancient fire distinguisher.
Does anyone have old photos on which a roadster with placed distinguisher can be seen?

Re: AvGas in the ford

Tach Keith,
it's not about the high octane number, which is unimportant. The big (technical) advantage is that Avgas contains lead.

Re: Push down ignition switch

Hallo Mike,

thank you for the hints. Yes, the complete ignition is already installed. Yes, that's tight fiddling.

But rather 100 ignition locks change than 1 again the rear leaf spring!
