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

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