Re: Rebuilt Steering Box Adjustment Question

Theoretically it should work, as long as the fitting together is done fast enough.

Re: How Many Model A Owners also Own a T?

That can be addictive.

I started out with 4 coils that I had since I was a teenager and learned to drive on a '26 coupe that I had bought. I now have a '25 touring and a LOT of parts. I intend to...

Re: Coil failure ?

It sounds like maybe you had a 12 V (3 ohm) coil?

I've had 2 coils fail on me over the years, not on Model A's. One was a '69 Ford 1/2 ton w/a 302, driving one day and the truck backfired and...

Re: Coil failure ?

If you're guessing and replacing parts, only replace one part at a time. If you replace the coil and the condenser because the engine wouldn't start and it now starts, which part cured the problem?

Re: tell a Model A related story

I once took a newer car to a dealer for servicing. There was fresh snow on the ground and one could see the tire tracks where I had pulled into and parked. After work, when I went to pick up the car,...

Re: Newbie '29 Speedster project, the good the bad and even the ugly (maybe)

Don't forget that after the oil pan has been drained it still has about 1/2 quart of oil in it that is sitting in the dipper tray.

Re: Carburetor leak . . .

There was one of those on my CCPU when I bought it, it didn't last too long, fell off somewhere. So I purchased and installed a "high boy" air filter. It didn't last too long either, lost it some...

Re: Rear wheel bearings - Timken part number

Looking around online I see that cylindrical roller bearings are available in single or multiple row. I'm wondering how the multiple row would work, rather than multiple single row.

Re: Rear wheel bearings - Timken part number

Standard ball bearings, 6200 series, are not designed to take side loading, 7200 series (angular contact) ball bearings are designed to take side loading. They might be an option.

Re: Rear Axle Messtoration

I would stand the housing on a perfectly flat and level surface, place a known good level on the top end, rotate as necessary to see if it's level in all directions.
