Re: What are some of the counter intuitive things you have learned about a Model A?

That's excellent advice. I tried to update "7)" above in the first post, but it looks like that post is too old to let me edit it.

Re: Fuel Bowl Question

Iíve used Hylomar on my radiator hoses too. I agree. It makes disassembly much easier.

Tremec T170 Transmission Troubles (this issue may be a puzzle)

Youíve worked with these transmissions a lot, if I recall correctly. If it was yours, would you rebuild it? Or, put it together to see if the noise goes away? Or, maybe something else that Iím not...

Re: Tremec T170 Transmission Troubles (this issue may be a puzzle)

The metal fragment is about the size of a dime.

When the car is cold, it's tough to shift into second until the engine (and transmission) warm up.

Re: Tremec T170 Transmission Troubles (this issue may be a puzzle)

Tom,

If I remove the starter to take a look, does the starter reattach easily, or do you typically have to ďfightĒ to get it back into the car?

I plan to take the tower off the transmission when I get a chance. I hadnít thought about starter parts flying around. Thatís a good idea too.
