Re: Carb Rebuild

Based on a recommendation from a friend, I started using PineSol as a carb dip. I just pick it up at the grocery store and mix it 50/50 with water in a plastic paint bucket. I have been using the...

Re: The great American race

On the left side of that car there is a long bar that starts at the middle of the frame and goes diagonally up and across the spare tire. There appears to be a foot-shaped pedal at the bottom.

Re: Biggest scare in a Model A

I have a daily driver that REALLY is a daily driver. I drive it several times a week without worrying about the weather, or time of day. Snow, heavy rain, 3:00 in the morning... I don't really...

Re: Ten years later, she's alive!

Don't forget to flush her out and give her fresh fluids. The old might be okay, but fresh is cheap insurance.

Good luck,

Re: Sticking Starter Switch

As for the not running issue, you are going to have to go through all the basics. Personally, if you didn't set it up yourself, I would start by checking the timing and the points gap. For me,...

Re: Historical use of Model A to run farm equipment

The setups I have seen like that they just jack up one wheel. The other wheel on the ground won't turn, so power it sent to the other wheel. Yes, it puts a lot of load on the one wheel, but when...

Re: Model A sculpture

I think the "crudeness" is intentional. I took it as part of its folk art style. I know that style is not for everyone, but I really like it. The little driver shows considerable detail and...

Re: Wheel painting

I seem to remember that it took about a can and a half per wheel, but mine were in pretty rough shape.

Re: Model A's and Woodstock...

I was four... I did have a Model A buddy that was there. Unfortunately, we lost him about a year and a half ago...and he never told me that story. I found out he was there at his funeral.

Re: Wheel painting

Unfortunately, I am out of town right now, so I can't walk out to the garage and look at the can, but I'm pretty sure this is what it is. I will confirm when I get home.

Re: Wheel painting

Are you doing a fine points car, or just cleaning up a daily driver? For my daily driver I found a product from Rustolem that matches the Tacoma Cream pretty damned well.

I especially like that I...

Re: Kerosene

That is how Pop taught me to do it. However, I agree, pulling the pan is still better, especially on an engine that you haven't had open before.

Re: 62

Yes, with the '30 Standard Coupe some people have removed the package tray and moved the seat further back. You gain 3 - 4 inches.

My Coupe is unmodified. I am 5'11" and have the seat adjusted...

Re: Update on starting problem

Also, if your battery is draining when the car sits, one important thing to check is to ensure that your generator cut-off is working properly.

Re: Additional Fuses

I have a fuse on the starter, but I also put a small fuse box high on the drivers side kick panel. Any accessories I have added go through that.

By the way, the fuse I have on the starter is not...

Re: 31 Coupe Windshield Pivot

I've replaced those on mine. I had a very hard time getting them to press in tight enough to stay. They still wiggle a bit in the holes. If I was pickier, I might bring them to a machine shop to...

Re: What's the latest you can remember anyone using an A?
