Re: Jacking Instructions

I use a Sunex 2 ton "low rider" to raise mine. I cut grooves in the top of a hockey puck (which fits the top of my floor jack) to "embrace" the axle to keep it from sliding while I lift her. On...

Natchez Trace

Next spring I plan on driving the Natchez Trace Parkway in my stock, 1930 coupe. I'm starting from the Alabama gulf coast and I'm trying to work out a timeline. I'd like to drive the actual parkway...

Re: Starting issues when warm

Thanks for the response, nkaminar and bobbader. I think I’ll go the route of exchanging for a rebuilt. With the summer cruising season upon us, I’d like to feel confident in my parts. We’re...

Re: Intake & exhaust manifold torque

Could your muffler not have a passive fit on the manifold? I had trouble with mine seating and pulling open the #4 exhaust port.

Re: Champagne

So, I filled the tank and it still was between 0-1/4; drove home, and the next day the gauge was working. We all have our gremlins, but mine just likes to mess with me.
I guess that the large...

Champagne

A few months ago I started a thread about replacing my gas gauge float with a champagne cork. I am sad to say, but my A rejected the cork today. I wish I could find a beer cork so I could see if...

Re: Starting issues when warm

700:
My engine has several thousand miles on it and compression of 55 lbs. in all cylinders, so I doubt if tight rings and pistons is the problem.
Thanks for the reply.

Starting issues when warm

Hey friends. I have searched the threads and thought I found the discussion, but I can't find it again.
I have an ongoing issue with my starter when the engine has been running at normal operating...

I've seen several photos of an install with the shift lever. Could those of you who use a cable please post a pic?

Re: 30 Coupe Cooling question

Bob, if your were asking me about why the thermostat: a couple of years ago I my car was running fine, but had a tendency to get hot if I sat idling for more than 10 min. I installed a temperature...

Re: 30 Coupe Cooling question

At first I would fill her to the top of the radiator and didn't understand that she would find her own level; which, is just above the core. She would overheat if I sat idling for long periods in...

Gauge cork.

The cork float came off my gas gauge so I planned on replacing it with a new synthetic type. The float wire was to small of a diameter to fit the new float and I broke the float while trying to wire...

Angled

I recently backed my A out of the garage and let it warm up for about 15 minutes to do a compression check. The spot I parked in has a slight, 5-10 degree, down-slope. When I moved the car back...

Re: Need Info on Rear Bumper Flag Mount

I wasn’t worried about the bumper because I was driving at “parade” speed. My biggest concern was my clutch.

Re: Need Info on Rear Bumper Flag Mount

I used 2 small hose clamps to secure a large flag to my rear bumper. I use the outer, passenger side bolt that connects the two bumper pieces and tightened the pole to that upright piece. It held...

Re: Benefits of a thermostat?

I just installed a Vintage thermostat and; so far, I love it. I was running hot, so I installed engine pans and the she couldn’t get up to 120F LOL. I tried the cardboard without success, so now I...

Re: Grab handle

Sorry, but after 50 years, I'd be the one going. And as the Cap says "nobody else could put up with me and if she's younger, I wouldn't know what to do with her.";)

Re: Grab handle

Y Block,
I agree. That's a nice, kinda art-deco look. It would be perfect for what I'd like. Most new trucks with running boards have a handle for getting in and out.

Thumbs up Thermostat update.

Re: Cool Running

I drove this car to high school back in the sixties, year round, in Indiana and only drained the radiator at night. It didn't have a temperature gauge and at sixteen I couldn't have cared about...
