Happy 90 years old 6/18/29 firewall cars.

Our 1929 Sport Coupe has a firewall date of June 18, 1929. That’s today.

Happy birthday to all...

Re: Driving The "A" In a Parade

All off the above mentioned comments and don’t ride your clutch. Put car in neutral and let the clutch out if your going to be not moving for a minute or two. Less stress on throw out bearing.

Re: STP and Transmission: any negative experience ?

We have been using STP in the transmission and rear end for years.

Re: Squeaky throwout bearing?

How loud is the sound and does it go away as soon as you start letting up on the clutch?

Don’t put a lot of grease into the throw out bearing. It just needs a little grease.

Re: Brand New V.S. Rebuilt Carburetor

Re: Foaming Coolant

I would drain the antifreeze into a bucket, than add just plain water.

Drive it to see what you have. Drain the water into a bucket. What it looks like should tell you something.

Also aluminum two blade fan.

A couple less things to worry about. Enjoy.
