Re: Need to move front spring across

Can you do some measuring to see if the spring is actually off center. If it is off center you may have to take the shackles out to separate the spring from the axle. Then you can maneuver the spring...

Re: 31 Front spring shackles, how tight or lose?

The shackles should slide in fairly easily. You may have tightened up the end plate too much. It should be no more than snug.

Re: My 1st decent drive of Model A and discussion

Do away with the Quail. Get a new cap from the vendors. Drill a hole in it to mount the motometer. A plain cap should not leak. If it does something is wrong with your radiator neck or the tabs on...

Re: No Compression in 3 & 4 Cylinders
