Re: Adolphe Kégresse

The car in post #3 has fore and aft front springs, so did GAZ have that setup?

Re: BackFlushing Radiator and Engine

The hose adapters are easy enough to make. I got holesaws to match the hose IDs and the garden hose adapter fitting OD to use on chunks of 2x4. I used adapter fittings that had a female hose end...

Re: Stupid Question #2: how does an iron frame act as a ground on our cars

See https://www.tibtech.com/conductivite.php?lang=en_US

Copper is almost ten times as conductive as steel. The steel frame makes up for it by being more than ten times the cross sectional area.

Re: New to the Addiction...

Popular opinion is that 63 mph is a bit fast for the engine life, suspension, and the brakes. Many keep it down to 45 mph.

Re: Did Ford give contracts to Murray & Briggs?

Don’t know about the archives, but it seems unlikely that Ford would arrange for bodies on a handshake,if that is what you meant.

Re: Which tap and die set

I was going to say that I think it is safe to say that there aren’t any BSW/F threads on a Model A, but who knows about the UK models with their smaller motors, etc.?

Re: Model A's and Woodstock...

I was a college boy at home in Indianapolis and wasn't aware of it. Just about everyone that I have met who was really there said the conditions were awful.

Re: Swapping engines, any tips?

New springs for the front mount. I assume you are already planning to remove the radiator, so think about new hoses. I left my trans in place with a support underneath (or could I have hung in from...

Re: Cabin Fan

My Grand Experiment is over. :( The 6V seems to have burnt out the 5V motor, since the motor leads show open circuit.

Re: Cabin Fan

To tell the truth, no, but it makes a lot of sense. Maybe that will inspire some thoughts on a similar mount.

Cabin Fan

When my Dad had my '31 Coupe as a cheap second car in 1953, I remember that it had a rubber-bladed fan mounted up high on the right side of the windshield. When I bought the car back from a cousin...

Re: Can anybody help with a comp. ratio?

What volume of the piston is above the deck? I think that has to be deducted from the 120cc.

Re: Scary ... What the hell happened ?

I left my special bolts in place and replaced everything else, so I didn't have to deploy any bad words when I worked on my radius rod socket.

Re: Scary ... What the hell happened ?

I found the rubber ball at my front radius rod mounting had fallen apart, so I replaced it all with the stock parts and my wobble went away.

Re: Need an electrical genius, don't know where to turn.

The capacitors for Lucas rotating field motorcycle magnetos have to have a very high voltage rating, but for the rotating magnet type, the conventional type will do. Can you post a pic of your mag?

Re: Hand Controls for a Model A?

I searched for "hand controls" and found this: https://www.fordbarn.com/forum/showthread.php?t=159684&highlight=hand+controls
