Re: Save it or drive it

Drive it, let other people see it. I drive 5000 miles a year and enjoy it and have come to realize it really is a dependable car.

Re: Decided to pull the motor/trans

Why drive it only a 1000 miles a year. I drive mine between 5000 & 6000 miles a year, drive it enjoy it and you will get way more life out of it between repairs.

Re: How is it.........

Not being cheeky, if the air filter makes it run rich would one not lean the carb out or am I wrong. Relatively new to Model A's so don't have the answers, just a lot of questions:D

Re: starter update

What am I missing? Why would you change out the simple foot starter to a dash mounted starter button?
