Re: Fuel shut off

Not your "original" set-up, but I bought the ball valve from Amazon. (It also has an electric shut-off just downhill from the filter.)

Re: Model B crank in Model A

To use a B crank in a Model A engine, the journals have to be ground down to Model A specs. That is actually a good way to use a B crank that is worn beyond specs. At least one engine in our club has...

Re: Radial Tires

Off topic, but here goes
Headliner is not original in a pickup. Mine had headliner in it when I bought it, but it was pretty much rotten, so I took it out. My pickup is the late '31 with the steel...

Re: ROTELLA 15W 40 Oil

I use Rotella 15w40 in my engine. In Alaska's colder climate I don't think the 15 is too thin as it would be in a much warmer Alabama.

Re: Trailering tips for protection

Re: Starter Foot pain

I fixed that situation by removing the "button" accelerator and replacing it with a pedal I bought on eBay for a mid '60s Mustang and modified it to fit on the shaft in it's place. It actually looks...

I had the same problem, even though I was wearing boots. I now have a key start in my pickup.
