Re: Ok, i'll poke the bear..Ethanol or Straight Gasoline ?

I have non-ethanol gas delivered to the house from the Co-op. Last delivery was $3.47 a gallon. Worth every penny when you factor in the price of a Honda carb on a 10hp pump. Enough small engines...

Re: Does the weber down draft not fit under a stock 28-29 hood?

here's a photo of the adapter for a standard 2-5/8" air cleaner. Google Weber as there are several sources. FYI, I have 2 A's with this set up and hood clearance has never been an issue

Re: Hydraulic brake balancing

Re: Pump Gas for a Model A

Try driving your A more often and the ethanol won't have time to rust the tank!

Re: 6.1 Head / Carburetor Choice

Re: 6.1 Head / Carburetor Choice

Re: Itís getting harder to drive my A

The neat thing about Model A hot rods is that you can put in any kind of seating. I had a built in lumbar support in the roadster and JEEP buckets in the CCPU. Same goes for shocks. Looking...

Re: Model A Trader Magazine

Re: Vintage tires- any value?

Out of date tires are an accident waiting to happen. Irresponsible to sell them to someone else.

Re: Model A rearend conversion

Have had my T-5 for ten years and it has nothing to do with speed, engine modifications determine the increase in speed. I can run 75 MPH with a fifth gear overdrive without stressing the engine.

Re: Battery charger

I have remote battery posts on both of my A's to make it east to use a trickle charge or jump start some poor soul. 12v of course. They're available from Speedway or NAPA

Re: Trailering Ď28 Model A Phaeton
