Re: Coil problem?

Did you clean the new points off when you replaced. Sounds like you not getting continuity through the points.

Re: Generator voltage high ?

Try freshening up all your connections and turning down you amps to about 5 amps and see if that helps.

Re: Distributor Lubrication

I think 3 in1 would be a little thin for Florida. I would use whatever you use in your engine for the bushing. I don't know what Sil Glyde is. I just use Vaseline or a dab of grease on the cam.

Re: Need Information

If your going to adjust the valves you will have to have the valve cover off. Then you can see when the valve you are working on opens and closes. The way I do it so I am certain the lifter is on the...

Re: 29 light switch

I don't know about yours but my light switch will only go together one way. The disc will only go in the housing one way and the housing will only go on the end of the column one way.

Re: Marvel Schebler carb pouring gas

His name is Jim Bullock. He could not be a nicer guy. If you can't get it straightened out contact Jim. He will make it right.

Re: Radial tires again

How are you checking your toe in. You don't do one wheel at a time. Toe in is measured by measuring the distance between the tires in front of the axle and then behind the axle. The measurement...

Re: Sealed beam headlights

Personally I don't like the look of seal beams on an A. You might consider going back to stock or put LED's in there. They are very bright and use very low amps. Great for day time driving. At night...

Re: Marvel Carb fuel line difference

I made up a new line from hydraulic brake line. You will need an adapter to the Marvel. Make your bends around a big socket. I really like the Marvel. More power and great idle.

Re: Assistance Needed !

I have the clamp on my armored cable but I just hook it over the long stud and don't put it under the nut. That way it is in place and doesn't rub on anything and when I want to take the distributor...

Re: No Start - Loud Pops

At this point I think you are confused and have the timing way off. I would suggest that you contact a Model A club in Houston and get some help. Don't be bashful about asking for help. That is part...

Re: No Start - Loud Pops

I would start by taking the air filter off for the time being. See if it will start. If still back firing retime the engine. There are a million posts here on how to do that. Once you are certain it...

You said you changed out the jets but did you clean out ALL the passageways in the carb?

Re: Is there a hydraulic throwout bearing for a 3 speed transmission

That is a new one on me. Does it work against the pressure plate fingers. With a travel of only .68 inch I'm not sure how that works.

Re: Gas Valve Installation - thread sealant recommended?

Yellow Teflon tape is fine as long as it is on the threads and not up where it can get into the gas line. I have used it for many years on many applications with no problems.

Re: Difficult time getting gas gauge bezel off

Before putting a flame by that tank pump it full of carbon monoxide from a good old polluting car. No BOOM.

Re: 5/16 Press in Grease Fitting Doesn't Fit (too small)

Those adapters for the original grease fittings don't work very well. If it's not a show car I would go with all Zerks.

Re: Gas Valve Installation - thread sealant recommended?

Yellow Teflon tape is fine as long as you get it on the treads only. Don't have it where it might get into the gas.

Re: How to age Caledon tubing?

I made a gas line out of hydraulic brake line tubing. It was a darker color sort of dark green.
