Re: Lucas No Leak . . .

Re: 1930 Model A. Runs great for about 15 minutes

Next time put your hand on the coil after the motor quits and see if it is hot. My car did this and I flipped the coil so that it was pointing up and drove it home, over 50 miles. good Luck

Re: 62

Tudor has more room. You can easily modify the seat mount to move it back 3 inches.
Good Luck

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

There was a number of them in my high school. I drove a 30 coupe 15 miles to and from.
There was a guy that had a Model B pick-up with twin 94,s. It was a neat truck. Late 1960's.
