Re: Gear ratio

I don't think your story is too useful to most new model A owners.They should drive more conservatively and keep the engines going longer.

Re: Ebay sales tax in place

I'm not sure how that can happen as they only take a % of your income from sales.

Re: Oil pump replacement gears

Great read and info, I wonder if I missed a bullet bt using NOS or NORS kits from the 30s & 40s.

Just curious, If that part was manufactured, can it not be rebuilt?

I have not seen a seal set like that. I would trim its feet.

Re: Black fender paint

I always thought the driver entered & exited on the right, thus the left spare.

Re: DId Model "A"s Come With a Spare Tire?

I've seen an invoice and don't remember if Bumpers were listed as an accessory. Maybe someone knows the answer. I believe they were part of the original purchase price.
