Re: Rumble Seat Deck Lids 30-31

The deck lid is the same for a rumble seat or a trunk, you just move the handle and have different hinges.

Re: Model A car names

Way back in 1970, my father named the coupe Betsy. When I bought the car 7 years ago I just couldn't change her name - Betsy it is!! :)

Need gears for '62 3spd

I'm helping a buddy fix his '62 Comet. 6cyl, 3 on the tree and somehow he knocked the teeth off of what looks like 2nd gear. Does anyone have a source for parts for these trannies?

Thanks

Re: tillotson float level

Mr Texas has a great website for Tilly's. I have my float set about 1 1/8+ due to the ethanol fuel boiling, it might help a little but doesn't cure it.

I don't know if they are created equal or not, but I have been using the NAPA brand rust inhibitor without any problems in straight water.

Re: Marvel carbuetor

I have two of these carbs and can't seem to get them to idle. They run stronger than my Tilley's but still working on the idle. I have found that Renners carries some of the parts to rebuild. If...

Re: Cracked rear motor mount

Mine was cracked like that and I had a buddy tig it for me. Grind a V into the crack and weld it up. It will be stronger than original if done correctly.

Re: Cutout sticking

The kit is $7 and not worth the brain damage to substitute.

Re: Cutout sticking

Thanks for all of the replies! I would like to keep the original cutout and will try to get it working correctly. I'm not opposed to running a diode cutout but sure hate to cut up an original part....

Cutout sticking

I have an original script cutout and it sticks sometimes after shutting the ignition off. It seems to be worse if I have the generator turned up for night driving. It has always released by itself,...

Re: A question about a 29 std coupe vs 5 window coupe.

So they went from a "coupe" to a "special coupe" then back to a "coupe"? Did they use the distinction of "sport coupe", "business coupe", "special coupe" in '28 and '29 or did they just go by number...

Re: carb and intake

That is a Marvel/Allstate carb. Sold aftermarket by Western Auto, Sears etc.... I've been told they are good carbs and I'm rebuilding one now to find out for myself.

Re: Hi Comp Head

Looks like a stock head is 25# according to Tom. I don't think a hi-comp head would be much different but I have no idea.
