Re: 1931 right hand side tailamp with license plate lamp

Of course they did but the ones forthe RHS on RHD cars were the same light as you guys use on the left, That is, with the clear lens underneath. Only the mounting bracket was different. (Mirror image)

Re: coker tire has sold out-mentioned on AACA

Brent, that depends where you are. By the time a $250 tyre is in my hands, I will have shelled out about $400. Besides, Brattons will not sell to Australia.:mad:

Re: Radiator decision?

I put in a Brassworks radiator a while ago and it was no better than the one it replaced. Very disappointed.

Re: coker tire has sold out-mentioned on AACA

If quality falls and or prices rise, they will only be opening the door to someone else who can make a tyre stepping in to take up that space. As it is, I think there is too much concentration of...

Re: tires for sale on ebay again 10% off free shipping

Looks like they are the old cross ply tyres. Do radials ever come up? How much? It's a bit acendemic really because freight etc would make those about $550-600 each here. UGGHHHH.

Re: so this just happened....

You might have dodged a bullet on the rear end. I think I'd rather have to replace the gearbox than the diff.

Re: so this just happened....

Vendors have a device that bolts onto the front of the coghouse to stop the notorious oil leak (or at least slow it). I think the jigger is made by Mitchell and is an easy fit. You might consider...

Re: Fuel injection

I've been away for a few days at a swap so I've just seen the responses to my post. It was a very successful swap but that is beside the point.
I am no purist but see no point in spending my hard...

Re: Angle floor panel replacement

Would the "angled floor panel" you speak of be what we call the "toe board" or "foot board"? That is, the sloping part of the floor between the horizontal floor and the firewall?

Re: What size tyres for 1935 16" rims

I'd love to that rally but we are already committed.:(
As for the tyres, I don't think I could get away with them in my cabin baggage!
I will make enquiries about freighting them over but as we...

Re: Fuel injection

Part of the allure of a Model A is its simplicity. Why would you want to put all that crap on one? The more highly technical, the more trouble and less reliablility.
WHY?

Re: Model A Radials

I believe the tyres which are the subject of this thread are 4.75 X 19 - even narrower than the problematic 5.00X19 Cokers and seeing these are also made by Coker, I'll wait till others have tried...

Re: Model A Radials

I'd like to see what reports we get back from people who use them. I note they are made by Coker also so there is no competition to bring down the prices The fact that they are cheaper suggests to me...

Re: Veterans Day !!!

As a footnote to that, Australia lost more men than any other country in WWI on a percapita basis. I have always thought that was crazy, given how far we are from the politics that caused it all.

Re: What size tyres for 1935 16" rims

Widening rims means welding them. That is specifically banned here so we are restricted to a narrow and high profile tyre and they MUST have a tube. The cost of 6.00X16 tyres is enough to make your...

Re: Not all Model As but....

Shameful indeed but not much different from what happens today. I stand to be corrected but I think it was in the 1960s that England did similar with old cars. End of life disposal has been on the...

Re: Leaking carb

I hadn't thought of using a gasket sealer in that application. Thanks for the tip. I guess it would help sealing the fuel gauge too.

Not all Model As but....

The timing of this may not be the best in light of the California fires but I had to share it.

California and this corner of Australia are the two most fire prone places on earth. We've seen similar destruction after fires here. For example, on the 7th of Feb, 2009, fires here burnt 1.1...

Re: Letís amp it up

Use an original? I believe they are of MUCH better qualioty than any of the repros. If the scale doesn't read high enough for maybe an alternator, try putting a shunt of the correct size behind it...
