Re: length of the tail pipe

I bought one of these "extensions" from Aires expecting it to solve this problem. That "extension" as Ford designed it routed the exhaust further back alright, but it exits in the center of the...

Re: Killin time with Covid 19 and JC Whitney

JC Whitney was my go-to source for Model A parts in the late ‘50s. Although I was able to get some stuff from NAPA.

Re: Light Switch Problem

Sacramento Vintage Ford makes an excellent harness that will replace your worn and frayed wires. Reasonable price and not too difficult to install.

Re: LED headlights in a 6 volt car anyone?

I went LED before LogoLites came out with theirs. Mine are from JD AMstar. I already had Halogens, but like the LEDs much better. More light, less heat & current draw. Mine are used primarily for...

Re: Request for AC guys

Back in "the day", they made A/C for 6 volt systems. My dad had one in a 6 volt Volkswagen.

Re: Headlight Ground

A dedicated ground back to the source (battery) is the best and surest way to alleviate these problems. There is plenty of room in the conduit for an extra wire.

Re: 3.27 Ring and Pinion

3.78 rear with 27% OD lets me cruise at 50, (sometimes up to 55) at a nice pace, engine turning under 2K. Good enough for me.

Re: Need to re-torque head, but socket is too fat

The design of the Vintage Precision water neck is much different than the original, as well as it being steel rather than iron. I don't see how it could break.
