Re: Speedometer cable question

If you do not have an early car, you should not have to worry about it unless it was changed how somehow but usually they don't use rare parts.

Re: Zenith Carburetor linkage sticking and stiff

You are missing the sleeve by the carburetor for the choke rod that holds it to the GAV. That might do it.

Re: Ignition wire falls out

If you cannot get it to stay by bending the clip on the wire - it is probably the coil. Originals and new ones thesedays work fine. Your coil may have not been made for the application. Another...

Re: oil level

if the drain tube for the rear main was missing I would not be surprised if other things weren't correct (though it could have fallen out). On my old engine the "rebuilder" decided not to use a...

Re: No Spark

Check for a hot blue spark from the points. Then maybe check your ignition switch as it could be that as well.

Re: Does tranny move forward during engine removal?

Re: Rebuilt Engine Tag - Thought I'd Share

Re: 1929 Phaeton Tie Rod installation.

It can be a little pain, but a rubber mallet helps if you are close. Pack grease in everything beforehand. Also, to install the left side, turn the wheel all the way to the right to give you the most...

Re: Shifting Problem

I figured it out. The plungers and spring were worn originals that allowed them to go too far into the detents. New ones solved the problem!
