Re: Max Compression Ratio

Terry, please go read what I am saying. My comment to Pete was said 'tongue in cheek'. You don't need to try to convince me that it didn't work as we hashed that out here many years ago.

Re: Max Compression Ratio

Terry, not according to an engine rebuilder from Texas who mounts them there and has argued to many that we don't know what we are talking about when we stated that wouldn't work! :p

Trust me...

Re: Max Compression Ratio

I definitely agree with you Jim. Most I think were 'power adders' for AA or BB 4-cylinder trucks to help them keep up with 6 cylinder and V-8 powered trucks. These would not have needed much...

Re: Engine Noise

I am going to say it likely is NOT valve related simply because you are not describing a miss. If you had a sticking valve or tappet, you would likely hear a backfire or miss in the engine as the...

Re: Open Car 'Curtain Light' finish.

Like it was dipped in enamel multiple times with a smooth flow-out, -or like it was sprayed with a slight orange peel texture??

Open Car 'Curtain Light' finish.

The Standards call for the open car soft top rear window frame to be a "rubberized enamel" satin-gloss Black finish. Has anyone ever inspected an original one upclose enough to determine the finish...

Re: Re-Silver A Rear-View

By chance, have you found a glass shop that can cut a mirror out of the same thickness as original?? That as been my issue.

Re: Front Axle Movement

Unfortunately that is the product of using those rubber wishbone ball kits. Not only do they affect steering, they also affect front brakes. Your options are to leave it as-is, -or restore the radius...

Re: Dealer Battery carrier

Gary, to add a little more confusion, could blue be for automotive and red be for the tractor dealers?

Bruce, check your PMs.

Re: Painting Model A/AA Hubs and Backing Plates

If you are trying to replicate the finish for fine-point, then using alkyd enamel is the most perfect way. Go to your local farm supply store and purchase a gallon or two of their Black tractor...

Re: 29 right tail light

You fabricate it by cutting off the license plate bracket. Then spray paint the license plate lens with Black paint to keep the light from shining thru.

Re: Powerhouse Bakelite Rings

Seth, draw it up in SolidWorks and have it 3D printed on an as-needed basis. Will last forever. You really just need to pull the print and draw off of that. Then export the file to someone who has...

Re: Max Compression Ratio

To muddy up the waters a bit, does anyone remember the diesel fuel conversion for a Model-A engine? As I recall, it was like 16:1 CR on cast bearings. It sure wasn't the compression ratio that was...

Re: steering stabilizer

Marty, if your stabilizer is worn or defective, it may not have added any resistance to the steering. A quick way to tell would be to see what kind of resistance you have when you push the steering...

Re: '28 coupe door check straps

The trick we use is buy a package of stainless screws from one of the big box stores. Cut two screws about 5-6 threads from the end. Chuck the cut-off section into a drill and spin it while you...

Re: NICE COUPE ON mafca ONLY 7000......

Your point is VERY well taken. I think it was first stated here about 20 years ago when someone said it is only valuable when they own it, and ain't worth nothing if someone else owns it. :D

Re: Bumper Arm A-17754-D vs. AA-17754-B difference?R

Thanks Bob, I don't know. Is there any EIs listed on the MAFFI page that would show how many revisions? The PPL from 1931 shows a listing on them as being for AA.

Re: Need help polishing a 1931 grill shell

Yeah, if you have noticeable scratches with 1500 grit, then you jumped about two steps in there. Deep scratches should be about gone with 600 grit. Almost all noticeable scratches should be gone by...

Re: steering stabilizer

My advice contradicts Ernie's advice but the steering system on a Model-A is very tight when rebuilt correctly. As such, the stabilizer only makes the steering action heavier IMO. I personally have...

Re: 7-tooth column overhoul
