Re: 12 volt conversion

So, what does your shunt consist of? I tried putting a 22 gauge wire across the back of the 30 amp ammeter and it pretty much zeroed out any readings on the ammeter.

Re: Non stock Muffler?

Get an Aires muffler and order it without the front piece then have your local muffler shop fab the front piece to fit your headers. At least that’s what I did.

Re: Redoing Brakes

When I had Randy do my brakes, I sent him everything from the backing plate out. Everything came back like it was new from the factory with cast drums. He does all the other things that you mentioned...

Re: wheel size

Even though pickups didn’t come with rear bumpers, many of us (me included) have added rear bumpers. I’ve gone a bit further and added a trailer hitch and back-up lights as well.

Re: Improved steering box choices

I have used the F100 box with both the standard Pittman arm as well as the shortened one. Can't really tell much difference either way. If the turning radius is shorter, I guess I don't make that...

Re: 2018 Miles

2017 = 3,327
2018 = 3,232

Not bad since Alaska only has 6,500 miles of roads, and only 66% of those are paved.

Re: E-Z Steer

That thread is from 2011 -- 7 years ago, a thread that I started. If you go there, please be sure to read my edit to post #1, otherwise you are taking things completely out of context.

Re: Tire sizes again for 16"

Nice looking wheels, Joop. Were these some that were cut down back in the ‘40s or did you have them done?

Re: Dash Lighting

Thanks Ruth.
I do have a 12 volt system. Already have LED tail/stop/turn on the rear and am in the process of installing LED headlights. Next will be the cowl/turn lights on the front.

Re: Touring with other Model A's - How does your club communicate

Zello would work well as long as you have cell service. Here, once you leave town, more often than not the “no service “ message pops up.
