Re: My model A wont go faster than 40-45

If it is a fuel problem it would be bucking and popping I think. Cars that were sold in hill country also had 4:11 gear sets.

Re: - battery post

Pinch the cable clamping end tight with the bolt out and run a hacksaw between the 2 sides to allow the clamp to tighten up more. Or replace the cable with one that fits.

Re: My model A wont go faster than 40-45

Re: Aristocrat dash swap

I don't think you will get a good fit. Of course anything can be made to fit with a big enough hammer!

Re: interior handle sleeve nut fit?

Post a photo, I think they are above the handle on mine. Maybe yours are correct. Are they or the handles reproduction?

Re: Settling of the rear spring

I have always used material on to of the spring to cushion the crossmember. I like a leather strip and a bit of grease. I punch a hole for the spring bolt.

Re: Battery Charging Experts -

You may need to have it checked with a hydrometer or take it for a stress test. If your meter goes to zero on other batteries I think you have a legitimate question.

Re: BB clutch

Can't you have the original one rebuilt? Or replace flywheel& clutch from another year? My '34 truck has a model A assembly.

A shop that works on trucks should be able to tell you what is loose, unbalanced, or out of alignment. They might not have parts to fix it but at least could balance and set proper toe in or other...

Re: valve clearence

Always follow the rebuilders recommendation, but he was asking about Model A specs. Modified engines need to be looked at carefully.

Ether will tell you if the problem is fuel related or something else. It shouldn't hurt anything if used by the directions.

Re: Schrader valve stems

I think any tube getting metal stems will require surgery. It is easy, use a sharp razor blade.
