Re: The smell of gas

If no gas is leaking past the shut-off valve when it is shut off indicates the entire issue is in the carb itself. The biggest single issue could be the float valve being set too high. That is...

Re: 20 or 30 Amp Fuse?

If you are running halogen headlights I would go with 30. Otherwise 20 is sufficient. There is no original spec on this because fuses weren’t original to the car. All you will get is opinion. You...

Re: My FIRST Phone call to Burt's in Colorado

They're a pretty busy shop, and I think there are only two that answer the phones. They are top notch and very knowledgeable so keep trying. Steve told me business has been booming with COVID...

Re: F100 Steering Box

I don't have one but I have only heard good things about them, particularly the ones from Randy Gross. I drove a friend's car that has one and there was effectively no play at all. It's not...

Re: Tune ups

It's interesting how we tend to measure point gap right down to the nat's eyebrow, so to speak. Recently I was on a drive and my car just quit with no other symptoms of loss of power, except for...

Re: Are brake floaters worth it?

After three tries at the Flathead brand, I gave up. The instructions say that all parts need to be in tip-top shape before proceeding. That was probably my issue to begin with. I was kind of...

Re: Is this Model A or Model T?

Definitely not a Tudor. Tudor sill plates are about twice as long. Go to one of the vendor sites and look up sill plates. That will give you good information.

Re: Itís getting harder to drive my A

We enjoyed stopping by and seeing you, Jeannie, Noah, and your progress on the 28 PU chassis! Great work on that red steering wheel refurb.

As to spunk and vinegar, I am sure that Model A seats...

Re: Itís getting harder to drive my A

Ray, a small group of us did a 120 mile deal today and it can be a killer. Both my wife and I complain about the seats in the 29 Tudor. They're horrible! I am just coming on 70 and I can tell you...

Re: Changing of the Guard

My wife and I, as well as some others locally DO get out and drive almost every decent week-end. A 75-100 mile round trip is not unusual but mostly we go around town, or out to other towns in the...

I have one of those and it was an easy install and I like it a lot. More importantly, my wife likes it!

Re: Rolling chassis

You might try Mark in Polson, MT. I don't know if he has what you are looking for, but he might be someone to talk to. He does all kinds of Model A work besides just speedometers.

Re: 1929 model A Tudor Frame serial number

That's not a frame cross-member. That is the body cross-member, which is attached to the frame. The serial number is on the frame rail and not on a cross-member. It is found under the support for...

Re: LED Headlights

My take on this is that the LED headlamp makers have tried to put the LED array in the same position in the bulb as the filaments of the incandescent bulb. It just didn't work very well. The...

Re: Headlights for my '28

Is your 28 a car or a pick-up? Cars had nickel plated buckets and truck headlight buckets are painted black.

Re: Does Gauge of Ground Wire Matter

Each side of the circuit carries the same current.

Use the heavier gauge wire. Realistically, the smaller wire will certainly carry the current needs for all your electrical devices except your...
