Re: Model A Rear Main Cap Removal

Thanks for the offer, Gary. No, I haven't heard of them so I did a search. The nearest one is nearly an hour away.
It's the big end nuts that cause most angst so I file them to take the nearest...

Re: Model A Rear Main Cap Removal

I doubt any tool shop will carry such a rarity. There are not many imperial tools about these days. It's been 50 years since we converted.

Re: Conversion to 12 volt system

The main reason I converted was because I am often driving in remote areas where getting a 6 volt globe or coil is out of the question (forget a battery). 12 volt stuff is readily available though....

If you had even a small sample of unobtainium, just imagine how much it would be worth on the open market!

Re: Heated Seats In The Model "A"

OK, I see a point in seat warmers if it is only the driver's seat that is fitted with one.;)

Re: Conversion to 12 volt system

If you're converting the car to 12 volts, converting the starter is a part of the job. If that is not done, the job hasn't been done properly. Any job done half assed won't be much good IMO. I've...

Re: Latest aluminum block.

Re: Dynamic dampening front pulley

I have fitted one on an engine I haven't driven without the Dynamic Balancer so comparison is a little difficult. I have, however driven many other Model As over the years for comparison. I believe...

Re: Model A Rear Main Cap Removal

I have taken the rear cap off with the engine in the car several times but I have to use an old socket handle. It is decades old and Australian made which means top quality steel was used (before...

Re: Latest aluminum block.

My thoughts on why foundries are busy and why I think they are:
One of our club members is a pattern maker and does some casting at home. Since China has gone rogue, many companies that used to have...

Re: Starter Mechanism

I've converted several starters to 12 volts for myself and others by reconfiguring the original field coils. When you see what is involved, it's not that difficult.

Re: Vehicle vibration

When you order, specify whether you have the rope seal or the modern style seal. Balancers for motors with modern seals do not have the spiral.

I've had one of those synthetic floats in one of my cars for at least a decade and it's still going fine.

Re: Replacing float and kit for 1930 Gas Gauge

No need for a sealant. In fact using one could make it near impossible to take out again in the future.

Re: Spammers at it, AGAIN

If that is so, all those people who have been banned could simply change name and come back, yet they don't. Maybe Ryan blocks their IP address somehow.

Re: Flywheel housing mounting

In the first Model As, the front of the engine was bolted directly to the front cross member - no movement if you ignore the flex of the chassis.
You ask why don't they crack - they do.

I assume you mean the stone guard. It is held on by a pair of "J" clips that hook into the holes in the shell where the headlight conduits emerge. Rubber stoppers hold it away from the shell.

Re: Leather main bearing

Leather bearings and wooden pistons were folk lore when I was a kid. We were told those stories by such a straight face that they had to be true.:rolleyes:
