Re: Crankshaft Alignment/Transmission Problem

I'm a little dense, but can you further explain...

"the cam/crank spacing was tight"

I'm also having a hard time picturing why flywheel/flywheel housing alignment and/or crank centering...

Re: Restored Nebraska Model "A" Is junk

That may be the case for NC. For WA, all you would need is that chassis title. No affidavit, no description of how you assembled it, no certification of roadworthiness, no DMV (DOL in Washington)...

Re: Restored Nebraska Model "A" Is junk

I flew from Sydney to Hong Kong once. From looking out the window it seemed like we remained over the same exact spot for several hours. :eek:

Re: Restored Nebraska Model "A" Is junk

No problem titling a car brought into a title state from a non title state.


This is done all the time. There are several companies that specialize in this. You "sell" your car to one of these...

Re: A Matter of $$

If you see the restoration process as entertainment, then finding a rust free A for 4K would be just what you are looking for. You will have far more in it than you will be able to get out of it...

Re: Mikes model A ford parts

If you expect any vendor to have absolutely every part in stock 100% of the time you are sorely mistaken.

If you change vendors for something as petty as this you will go through all the Model A...

Re: Coil failure ?

Just a word to others here.

If your A stops running, and everyone suggests it's the coil or condenser (as they certainly will). So you test them and they test good. DON'T replace them. Continue...

Re: Model A Ford Fender Debate

"Arid temperatures" doesn't really mean anything :confused:.

The reference to Mexico may be an...

X2. If I had the condenser and coil biz for Model A owners who changed those parts when they were good, I'd be a rich man. :D

Re: Victorias

Chris gives a great description :)

I'd just add that a Victoria has an adjustable (fore and aft) driver's seat. This feature was also standard on the Deluxe 1931 Tudor, but very few of those were...

Re: Radiator overflow

I had the same experience. I was also told by most that the problem was a bad head gasket or cracked block.

One solution offered, however, was that the water pump was moving too much water. I...

Re: 1930 model A starter 12V conversion

The starter doesn't have to be converted to 12V. A 6V starter will work fine on 12V.
