I had Charlie NY do the Stromberg 97's on my '34 and '37 Fords. He did a great job on both of them and his service quick a reasonably priced.

Re: ideas on a cheap wash tub?

For one at a time use, I suggest using a burn barrel lid. I have one and it fits over the barrel so it has a larger diameter than the barrel. I bought it at a farm and garden store for around $30.00.

Re: At What Age Do You Give It Up?

I’m 87 and still drive my early ’28 open cab pickup and my later ’28 roadster. I only drive the pickup on nearby forest trails, mostly to gather firewood because I’m having trouble getting my feet on...

Spray some silicone lubricant on it and try again.

Re: Horn repair and worn commutator

I have two Model A’s which I have owned since 1989. On both cars the horns worked only when the engines were running fast. All I did was to spray some nonflammable electrical cleaning fluid on the...

Re: Errratic ammeter issue

I have a Fun Projects ammeter in my ’22 roadster and it works great. My ’27 touring uses a smaller ammeter, similar to a Model A one. It is a foreign made repro and I don’t think that it is very...

Re: Wiring harness question

I agree with Badpuppy. I replaced the harness in my '28 roadster last year and just clipped off the pigtail. I also needed an extension wire assembly for the drum taillight.

I struggled with this for along time with my ’28 roadster. With a lot of help from this forum I found that the radius ball socket was a poorly made repro. When I replaced it the problem went away....

Re: Mouse retardant - dryer sheets

Re: Rear Axle Seal Removal

Re: 1938 Tudor Windshield

Some time ago I clamped down the windshield on my ’37 Fordor tightly to prevent it from leaking. When summer came it seemed impossible to open it without breaking something. The following winter I...

Re: Got my first T and having starting issues

Drain a little gas from the tank and then again a little from the carburetor bowl. My cars often collected water when I was using corn gas and not driving them much.

Re: trouble starting

If you are using E-10 gas you might have water in your carburetor bowl. I frequently had this problem until I started using E-Free gas. Just drain the bowl and see if it will start.

Re: 1934 Ford Trouble Starting

I recently sent my distributor to Charlie Schwendler for repair. When I got it back, I installed it on my '34 roadster and it fired right up. The car idles and accelerates nicely.

Re: Rear Axle Seal Removal

I believe it's a rubber/silicon type seal because I can see a thin black ring around the axle. I fear that this will be really hard to get out but I'll give it a try.

Thanks again, Robert.

Re: Rear Axle Seal Removal

I have a sleeve puller and the sleeve is out and I have a new one. When I look in the hole I can see the seal. I have a new silicon type seal but don't see how I can get the old one out.

Thanks,...

Re: 1929 double a won't start, help

Watch out for the so called short proof condensers. I went through four of them until the fifth one worked.

No but it has a copper tag that is punched "motor number" with the 6 digit seral number punched right under it. This looks homemade and I think that it may have been added on when the car was...
