Re: Engine Misfire Knock

Do not get sucked into modern points conversions, if you do, keep your original breaker plate so when you un-convert you have something to use that works. Also a misfire is generally not associated...

Re: 31 model A

You are doing the mods, can I have your old parts that you don't need? Only a minority of Model A people have Hydraulic brakes, often done by a previous owner when v8 parts were in wrecking yards and...

Re: Spark Question

You might be better off with a simple test light- the clear plastic handle lights up when voltage goes through by way of the single wire and the "ice pick" probe. Visualization is everything. Usually...

I'll deal with only one item. The ring gear needs the rounded side of the teeth at the rear as it sits in the chassis. When you remove the starter the bendix goes past the ring gear and comes forward...

Re: Frame to front and rear end alignment

Re: Pressure plate question

My observation of NEW these days, regardless where they come from, is that they are staked with center punches so tightly that the bolts will break. I am talking about the eye bolts that the...

Re: Serpentine belts

Too the point where is energy being lost? the belt is thick and it takes energy to bend and straighten out (think about bending a piece of bailing wire fast: gets hot.) 2nd. belt jams itself down...

Re: Is My Cam Going Flat?

The place to adjust is: the center of the heel. This is also TDC for that hole and the companion hole. If you start the adjusting procedure for the two valves on # 1, both cam lobes will be swung...

Re: Head stud holes into block water jacket?

Through holes are known as wet holes and i agree that they must be coated with a sealer and Permatex #2 is the preferred stuff. So map them out and seal them so they won't seep coolant up through...

Re: Throttle linkage

Re: 29 Tudor body wood question

You see the nail holes? that's where the headliner is streched and tacked to. The interior kits will give more complete answers. That area is really a dead air space. Crude is of no consequence.
