Re: Oil viscosity (weight) for model A

Hi Al. Your car doesn’t need the zinc additive. It was more for cars in the 40’s and 50’s etc. with stiffer valve springs.

Re: caster tools

Hi Mitch. I too have aligned my model A with a modern alignment machine. My machine only does toe in degrees. I set my toe in to .06 degrees. Does your do inches or what did you set your toe in to?

Radiator topper

I had a fellow club member make this radiator topper for me. Kinda based off the one in the movie "Paper Moon"

Re: Down draft problems

Carb is too lean. For one check to see if you have fuel squirting out with the engine off in the carb from the accelerator pump. I think you need to tear the carb apart again.
