Re: Front Motor Mount Springs

I have the repro springs with the rubber plugs in the springs, hard as a rock. I took a punch & knocked them out, got lucky, now the engine sits perfect.

Re: 1927 T Roadster

Just be aware that even at 40 MPH the T brakes are mostly a wish so plan ahead to stop or slow down.

Re: Whatzit agian

It is an "Air Friction" carb. Google "Air Friction carburetor" & scroll down to antique carburetor/ OEM. Second page shows a 20's ad.

Re: Head puller For the model A

If you have access to a lathe, chuck the plug in and turn the top lip off that holds the porcelain in, then just tap it out from the bottom. Save a lot of work.

Re: Just curious x 2

We had an A at a meet some years ago that sounded totally stock as it went through the gymkhana , turned out to have a Pinto engine going through a stock A muffler. It just idled a bit smoother.

Re: Remove hood hinge pins?????

Soak in 50/50 ATF & acetone then gently heat hinges from the under side with oxy/ace torch (But not enough to warp), then tap out. Working hood tops back & forth helps too.

Re: 1936 Temperature gauge rebuild
