Re: Radiator overflow

Sure sounds like a head gasket or you are way under torqued. Drive it slow in third gear and lug it. I bet you get bubbles.

Re: Leakless Water Pump

Most are not leakless. Some are built with just an O ring. You can try packing behind the nut, but if you run a leakless, you better have a spare for repair on a trip. With the old original, Easy...

Re: '29 A Town Sedan, over heating

You say the radiator was flow checked. I bet not. A good radiator should flow about 36 GPN.
Torque your head. Could be a leaking gasket, but very likely, your core is plugged. Get a new one. If...

Re: Rear Axle Messtoration

If you are going for a show car, cut them off after the car is drivable. If it’s going to be a driver, leave them on.

Re: Stumped by no start...

Try starter fluid in the carb and see what happens. If he had the manifolds off, there may be a big leak.

Re: Where oh where has all the gas gone?

There is an old joke where your friends siphon gas to drive you crazy.

Re: stumped

Check your clutch actuating arm. They crack. Happens often. It’s the lever the clutch pulls up when you push the pedal down. Easy to check. Between this and what you find under the shift cover you...

Re: Crankshaft pulley question

If the big nut is tight, and pulley is still loose, it has to come off. If it is broken, it can wipe out both of your rope seals and that is a bigger job. Take off the nut and see what you have.

Re: Oil pan bolts

What torque do you guys use. The book says 20 FT lbs, but the bolts are never dry. I put 20 on mine and they are really tight but did not break. That's probably too much.

Model A Poem

At a club Christmas party, we sang this to the tune of My Merry Oldsmobile.
Someone asked for the words, so I thought I would share it with the Barn. Wrote it a few years ago.

Come ride with me...

Re: Fuel Shut-off Valve

There is packing in there that you have to dig out. If you can rotate it, it should pull out.

Re: Scary ... What the hell happened ?

Tighten your tie rod and drag link ends and make sure you have 1/16” toe in. Also check you pitman arm for looseness. It’s tough, but you should adjust your steering gear. Or, just find a club member...

Re: Cannot get the quail back on

It ollks like yourscrews are going in from the bottom. They should go in from the top. Put the screws in loose. Rotate the tabs. Hold them from turning, then tighten them. Good luck.

Re: Dip stick use question

There is only one position for your stick, and that is fully down. You over filled your oil. That is why it was spewing out. Get the level down and always keep the stick down. If you have a shop...

Re: Model A starter clunk then no electrical

Use a jumper cable to make sure the engine is grounded. Most of us have a second ground cable between the frame and bell hsg. Sometimes that engine does not have a good ground.

Re: Model A starter clunk then no electrical

If you have a short in the starter that brings you down to zero volts, something must be getting hot, tap that end of the cable to ground and see if you get a very big spark. You should. If not, it...

Re: The Rear Brake Camshaft Lever...A-2235R-2236L

The Clevis should point inboard toward the brake rods. Should be easy to tell. The rods should line up fairly well. If they are wrong, you will see it. Good luck.

Re: Odd Failure

A tough one I ran into was a bad, or corroded crimp between the cable and the end-cable fitting. It measured 6 volts, but would not pass heavy current. Check those crimps.

Re: Odd Failure

Happens all the time. Just put car in third gear and push it backwards. You will hear a pop and you are all set.

Re: Backfiring, Stalling, Shaking..... all together.

I would start by installing a new manifold gasket. Easy and does not cost much. On the carb connection to the manifold, make sure those two flanges are dead flat. They warp and let air into manifold....

Re: Veggie

When it dies, quickly stick your finger in the carb, by the choke blade. It should be a little wet from gas. If it pops a little as it dies, you may be running out of gas.
