Re: Is it possible to repair the upper radiator tank without radiator removal?

Re: GAS TANK un SEALER

If you can get some of the goo out of the tank see if it dissolves in carburetor cleaner. If it does (I'm thinking it very well could) buy a gallon and slosh it around for a while.

Re: Model A gas tank cleaning

I'm not a 100% sure but I think that the baffles have enough of a gap to allow BB's to pass around them.
Strap it onto the opening of a portable cement mixer, throw a bunch of BB's in there and let...

Re: Installation of Rebuilt Original Ignition Switch

As far as screwing the cable into the distributor I screw it in a total of three turns. No more, no less. Has worked every time for me.

I drained the oil allowing about 10 minutes of time until I...

High compression head choice.

I will be installing a Warford overdrive in my 29 AA. I plan to change over to a high compression head. Thoughts on going with the 5.5 to 1 or the 6.0 to 1?

Also are the high compression heads...

Re: Wierd compression

Do a leak down test to see if you have a couple of valves that aren't seating well.

Re: Engine assessment

If your compression is good and the cylinder walls aren't all buggered up that is a plus.
It sounds like you want to make...
