Re: Model A Improvements

Although there is something to be said for bone stock, I am OK with turn signals, 12 volts, negative ground, alternators, electronic ignition, oil/temp gauges, battery cut off switches, and...

Re: Zenith Gas Supply to Secondary Well

Also, the idle mixture on Zenith carbs must be adjusted with the timing at full retard and idle speed minimized. The mixture screw actually controls air and not fuel, which means turning the screw...

Re: steering hangs up in a tight turn.

Re: 1928

Would be worth checking continuity of all ignition wiring and also checking to ensure there is voltage to the coil during the no-start condition. Many more coils are replaced than are defective.

Re: Gas Shutoff/empty carburetor for overnight/long term parking.

Had the same problem. In an effort to troubleshoot, ran a plastic tube from the sediment bowl to a plastic bottle and left it overnight with the valve closed. Had about two ounces of fuel in the...

Re: Model B Coil Wiring

Not a simple question. Positive/negative ground, 6v/12v, ignition switch config, electronic ignition, was system ever modified. Wiring sometimes gets pretty creative over the years.

Re: Should I pass on this A? Or would I miss out on something?

Johnny - Good decision. Assuming the wood, sheet metal, and mechanicals are serviceable, this ride is at least $10K away from being safe and presentable. Everything which wears is probably worn and...

Re: Engine Swap

Seen quite a few As with Ford Ranger/Mazda pickup four bangers. Don't know if that is an optimized choice but it seemed to fit like a nice package.

Re: Shut Off Valve Leaking

Made the original post back in April and have long since solved the caper. Guess the post re-emerged with the addition of more info. Got a new shut off valve from Bratton and it works great. ...

Re: Zenith Carb leak

Leaky inlet valves are something of a common problem in the Zenith carbs. Might change out the valve with a viton needle unit.

Re: '29 A Town Sedan, over heating

Overheating that fast sounds like a flow problem. Are you sure the radiator is not clogged ?

Re: Dies at idle... Help

Had exact same problem which turned out to be a leaky inlet valve in the carb. Tell tale sign was the carb looked wet and would drip slightly when the engine was shut off.

Pretty happy with Haggerty. Probably best to get direct quotes and compare coverage.

Re: Schwalms

Hang in there ! Sounds like you are on the comeback trail and should have the old Henry on the road in a few weeks. Looking forward to a happy conclusion.
