Air pressure for cylinder leakage test only need about 30-35 psi. Any extra pressure will only make the crank turn away from TDC.

Re: Spring Prep

The more lube on the spring leaves, the more you're relying on good working shocks for the smooth ride. Some friction is part of the equation.

Re: 29 special coupe top and wood

My advice is remove the R. bumper arms and move forward. You can tackle that later and for now get the alignment at the hood to cowl and door fitment with the wood blocks and rubber shims.

Re: Help disassembling rear left brake for 1929 Model A

Drum bralkes do not generate quite as much heat and not so concentrated. Any quality paint will do. Caliper paint is overkill. Grease for chassis is called chassis grease and historically just goose...

Float too high sometimes, Slosh makes a flood situation. Float level too low, goes so lean it dies. Try both.

Re: Help disassembling rear left brake for 1929 Model A

Look closely for a" R" or "L" near the part #. A 2 jaw puller might get it sliding off.

Re: Stumped by no start...

Figure out the "0" on #4. Meanwhile think about not firing but save it for later. Also make sure that the screw holding the distributor cam is really holding the cam and can't slip out of time.
