Re: Model A Engine Marine Conversion

That would make a cool boat engine.
Thanks for saving and donating it to a museum.

There you go, and that should would have a lot of people asking questions!

Re: REQUEST ADVICE: Changing Timing gear.

Be sure to lube the new gear and put some grease on the spring and plunger in the front cover.

Re: Early Oil Pan Wowes

I agree, as that must be very rare.
I've never seen one, and this is the first I've heard of it.

Re: Viltage

I would say #2 nailed it.
I worked on an A with ignition problems and found the spring loaded end of the popout only had a couple stands of wire still connected.

Re: steering

Toe-In would be my first check. It should be 1/16" and no more than 1/8".

Re: Gas gauge replacement Q/help.

I've had to use a pipe on the tool handle for more leverage a couple times.
I've also sprayed some penetrant onto the glass to help break the bond.

Re: Gas leaking thru Sight Glass

I agree, and use a quality fuel proof float and cork gaskets.

Re: The Ace Mechanic stikes again

Shouldn't be too hard to find an old 6 volt Studebaker solenoid, as most Studes had overdrive. LL MY Studebakers and parts got burned up, or I'd give you one for nothing.

Re: Horn rod moves with steering wheel

That bushing fixed the problem on a car I worked on about 20 years ago.
Do what you must to make the bushing fit where it belongs.

Re: Universal Connection

Also don't forget to have the gaskets in place as you slide the parts together.

Re: Brake light switch

Yep, on most large purchases I like to look it over, then go home and think it over, then go back for a second look. The second look often see things missed the first time.

If the thing is a good...

Re: Possible interest in parts

Bert's near Denver may be interested in buying the whole lot, depending on what's there.

Re: Straightening front bumper

i separated the 2 bars and supported the on 4 x 4's at the outer curves, then jumped on each bar until it was straight across. This was on a nicely replated front bumper. Too bad it now went through...

Re: Engine color

Studebaker engines were green because of left over WWII paint, so the same may be true for the Model A and WWI, but the mixed left overs sounds very likely.

Re: Possible interest in parts

Are you buying or selling?
Not that I can do anything for quite some time, but others will need to know.

Re: saving a bumper

Thanks Ray.
I know years ago whenever I used gold or silver paint, it would easily come off with gasoline, even after drying a couple years. Don't know why just those colors and not others.

Re: Safe To Drive.....?

That's not bad for a stock engine.
My 28 engine runs fine and doesn't smoke, and has 50 PSI and each of the 4.

Re: Left rear wheel blocked briefly?

The same thing happened to my 29 Tudor when I first bought it. It was caused by the parking brake band binding in the forward direction, but not in reverse. After I redid the brakes and fixed missing...

Re: saving a bumper

If money is tight and you want a quick fix, Rustoleum makes a chrome paint that would look better than black.

Re: Nu-Rex Electronic Ignition Help

I agree.
They work well, and if they ever fail, they are easy to check and fix.

Re: 1928-29 Headlight Questions

1928 had no signal bulbs, but a HI and LOW bulb only in the headlamp.
You can buy the missing parts from Bert's, Bratton's, and Snyder's.

Re: Starter stuck in on position

I agree and have also had good results using a lube on the contacts.
I also agree with Bob that the angle on the repro covers is wrong and can cause sticking.

Re: GAV housing threads

I've never had one leak there, but if I did, I'd do the same as Ed just said.
