Re: NOS Ford clutch disc or new spring type.

I would recommend using the new style. Should be quieter, and smoother of the line.

Save the NOS as a collector item. Enjoy.

Re: Fuel Spark Arrestor in bottom of Tank, removal

The flame arrester is designed to keep any flame at the neck of the gas tank. This is how a gas lamp works. Put gas cap back on and hopefully any fire is now out.

Gas will not burn, but as we all...

Re: Adjusting the timing for hilly driving..

After 60 years of running these cars I’m not sure there is a true answer to this question.

Re: Radiator Temperature

Model A’s, as we know, were not built or designed for thermostats.

Back in the day they would just block some of the radiator to raise the temperature.

Re: Screen in Gas Tank Removal

Years 28 and 29 are screw in. Yours drops in using the tabs to hold it, 30 and 31.

Remember it is a flame arrester not really a screen. The suppliers have a replacement for the 30 and 31 cars.

I also agree.

You donít know what you donít know.
