Re: TransmissionThrow-Out Bearing Lub.

Not being cheeky, why then the grease fitting? I am relatively new to

Re: Champion 3xs or other plugs?

Folks, went to my local NAPA dealer and he suggested I try Auto Lite 3076. I looked at a cross reference chart and the 3076 spark plugs were comparable to the W18.

Re: Recomended torque?

Re: Model A Radials

What sort of life could one expect from a mileage point of view. Is it worth the extra money with miles verses dollar between regular verses radial tires?

Re: Model A Radials

Does anyone know what sort of life you should get out of them from a mileage point of view? Has anyone done a calculation of mileage verses dollars between regular tires and radials?
