I have always installed an electric fuel shut-off in every Model A I have owned (7 in 40 years). Never had a failure of any sort.

Re: Indented Firewall

I owned a 1931 S/W 4dr with a “restamped” firewall. Apparently Ford was in a bit of a rush to get this change into production.

Re: How’s your Shortened pitman arm working?

I installed a new one from Snyder’s on my ‘30 Tudor. Steering is much easier. This is the second one I have done. I always use a new one, never a welded one.
