Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

Rectify WHAT? I shared a true story of what happened. I'm not complaining or ranting. If you took my post as a complaint or rant, then you must think history books are nothing but rants. I told a...

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

Only had to use AAA one time- On the all-original unrestored fordor. The original babbit splattered on the way home from my dad's house, and had to get it towed home.

I requested a flatbed on the...

Re: Just had a Model A wedding

Congratulations, Mike! You both are destined to have many adventures with laughs, tears, and togetherness. Good luck, even though you two have plenty already.

Re: 4th of July Celebration during COVID

It attracted thousands of spectators. If you notice, the video is edited. That was done to remove the crowds of spectators where you could make out faces since it would be impossible to get signed...

Re: Manifold Gasket Replacement - New Video by Paul Shinn

Neither the block nor the parts are "warped". You are jumping to a conclusion. Either you did not watch the video, or you skipped the part where I showed the close-up of the casting texture on the...

Re: Manifold Gasket Replacement - New Video by Paul Shinn

ONLY if everything is perfectly flat. My block (and every other I have seen) is not flat.



Even worse, you're trying to make it air tight. Prevents vacuum leaks.

Re: Manifold Gasket Replacement - New Video by Paul Shinn

Thanks for the publicity.

When I discussed using the high temp RTV, I also showed why I do it. See the closeup shot of the engine block surface.

Re: Town Car Deliveries

There are two 1931 town car deliveries in this video, including the one pictured above that belonged to the late Tim Kelly.

Re: So you have an all original car...OK...

They were removed in the 1950's for some reason. I have a set, though not original to that car, so I could always put them on for judging. But the car is just being preserved as it has been handed...

Re: So you have an all original car...OK...

Valid point. By the way, a few years ago, I posted a portion of a video I shot while riding in Marco's roadster. That car is unreal.

Re: So you have an all original car...OK...

There is quite a debate about what is original going on in the comments under this Model A video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QqA28sHrWiA

Admittedly, the video is stupid. All it was...

Re: Distributor Seized

No. Except one thing- I'd stick with fiber timing gears. The laminated ones, to be specific.

Re: E 85

Model A didn't seem to care. However, there was a noticeable loss of fuel economy.

Re: Carburetor noise...

If the air bleed screw is adjusted in all the way, then it will sound like that. However, that also almost certainly means an intake leak if that's the setting it runs best.

Re: MAFCA National convention

Thanks, Jim.

That's a real shame. I suspect this will be over the hump well before then.

The Sonora A's hosting the NCRG gathering in June is still on.
