Re: Parasitic draw at turn signal on column

Make sure the TS signal switch body is grounded. You might have an open ground.

Re: New clutch - should the throw out bearing disengage?

It's also the way it lubricates your driveway, garage and the street!

Re: Rear wheel bearings - Timken part number

Back in the day, the spacer was likely cheaper for Henry to put in the transmission than another bearing.

Re: Radiator fill question

Thanks for the reply and that is indeed a great looking method. However, I was looking for a more simple approach. :D

Re: Radiator fill question

That might be my only solution. The baffle is really all around and does not allow for any sighting past it. The hole through the baffle for the overflow tube is pretty much the same diameter as...

Re: 29 Model A - accelerator issues

Something has to be hanging up. I would imagine a right hand drive has some linkage that we on the other side of either pond arent familiar with.

Radiator fill question

I recently purchased a very nice Brassworks radiator. My old radiator had no baffle in the filler neck, so I could plainly see where I wanted to fill the level with coolant. I would fill it to just...

Re: Where oh where has all the gas gone?

Make sure to turn off the fuel valve when parked, especially if your carb. needle & seat valve leak. If you garage your car, you would have noticed gas on the floor, so maybe that's not the case. ...

Re: Replacing fuel shutoff valve, does tank need to be empty?

I drained mine by removing the fitting from the carb and extending it with a rubber hose to drain into a 5-gallon gas can. That will save you a lot of grief of you don't drain it. as stated by...

Re: Pay attention to the little flashes...

I agree with the last two comments. You have a bigger problem than you realize. The rubber grommet between the radiator shell and the conduit is only there to keep the conduit from rattling in the...

Re: Gas tank gasoline shut-off valve removal tool

I just happened to see that on page 98 of Tiny Tips. It says a 5/8 x 14 thread nut (NF).

If the brakes are shot, the e-brake is likely to be shot too. :)

Re: 29 Tudor how to reduce engine heat & fumes into interior

I need to think about these things too. Lots of hot air coming through the space where the kick panels will eventually go. I won't be doing the interior until next year or the next so I think I...

Re: Scary ... What the hell happened ?

Its surprising you haven't had it before. I mostly eliminated mine by getting rid of the aftermarket rubber"tennis" ball on the radius rod and replacing it with the stock parts, and by tightening...

Re: Cannot get the quail back on

On mine, I just have to fiddle with it until it goes. You are usually pressing against the rubber O-ring and if it is a good O-ring, it needs some hand pressure to get it compressed enough to go...

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

If you want to make it run and leave the rest as-is, that is probably ok. However, if you want to fix it up, you will be in it for the long haul, both for time and money. They sky is the limit. ...

Re: Flamethrower 6v coil too much power ?

Sounds like Sychro's fixes are good pointers. Otherwise, you start with a better spark and have a misfire from the cross-arcing.

Re: Early 29 vs Late 29 Radiator Design?

I would be willing to bet that just about any change other than outer style changes were done either to:
