Re: Brake Light Switch Backwards

The switch probably works fine. To check the switch just use a test light or volt meter. Make sure you have constant power to the switch. On the early transmission mounted switch there should be no...

Re: Clutch stuck

You say the fork moves, so, I'm thinking that the collar is not moving at all. Have you tried to see if you can get grease to the collar ? If the collar will take grease see if you can get at it with...

Re: "B" Distributor timing with an "A" front cover

I believe the base timing for a Model B is 9.5. Much over 10 base timing could cause any engine to kick back on the starter.

Re: Stuck front drums.

They have to be hung up on the shoes. The shoes may not be retracting enough and there is a lot of rust on the drum outer edge. They'll probably have to be forced off. Rotating and beating with a big...

Re: Running Poorly

Idle mix adjustment is air, not fuel.

These carburetors are very simple. It sounds like you may need to adjust float level.

Re: 1930 Model A. Runs great for about 15 minutes

A bad timing gear caused it to run for awhile then quit ? Thats interesting.
