Re: Ever have your engine die at a stop light?

Without rereading the string again, do not know if it was mentioned. Shim Washers on the float valve sometimes seep. A secondary function of them is sealing the float valve.

Re: New Zealand - Lucky 17 Model A speedster

Re: Ever have your engine die at a stop light?

Heat build up is normal when you shut off any motor, including the carb heating up, but this should not cause the carb to leak. More than likely what happened is while running, gas usage kept the...

Re: No air filter . . .

Does Renners still rebuild carbs? Thought I saw where they no longer rebuild carbs due to people blaming issues on the carb when people also had issues with dirty/rusty gas tanks, manifold leaks,...

Re: No air filter . . .

Berts can modify carbs for air balancing for use with air filters during their carb rebuild process if you ask.

Re: Just wondering if

Occasionally guilty - I will admit that sometimes when reading strings, not all of it sinks in like it should. Have tried, been working on rereading strings a couple of times before posting.

Re: Ever have your engine die at a stop light?

IMO


Stalling at stop is not an inherent issue, but is a common issue that can be frustrating to solve, there are many causes. Adjusting the idle lever for stopping is a way to live with the...

Re: Another new Model A owner.

If you end up rebuilding the Carb and replace the Jets Renner's Corner sell Jet kits that are flow tested.

Re: Ever have your engine die at a stop light?

Could have been something as simple as something in the float valve, disassembling/cleaning may have fixed it.

Re: Ever have your engine die at a stop light?

If you leaving the shutoff on, does it continue to drip?

Re: Ever have your engine die at a stop light?

If you shut the gas valve off, and it eventually stops leaking, the shutoff is good and possibly your; float valve is bad, or float is bad, sometimes the float valve wears a spot into the mating...

Re: Another new Model A owner.

Nice looking car, looks well taken care of.


Sounds like typical issues when starting a car that has sat too long.


Good luck, keep us posted on what you find.

If I remember correctly, there are two types of plates that the springs fit into. One style holds the clutch springs captive, one style does not. I am not a mechanic, but wanted to raise this...

They do both functions. My truck rattled/squeaked, and the brake lamp had a tendency to keep the stop lamp on. Some of the springs were put on incorrectly when I got the truck, and I had to pull...

Re: Marvel's Mystery Oil

My perception of the 2 products.


Seafoam - Mostly a cleaner/thinner, analogy would be paint thinner with oil based paints.


MMO - has both cleaners and light weight lubricants.


Correct?

Re: zenith 1 overflows.

I do not now what is happening. Am not an expert but I would think if the gas in the bowl level is enough to leak out the vent, should be coming out the air intake/intake seep hole also?

Re: zenith 1 overflows.

f balsiger - is it the hole on the bottom of the air intake, or is the hole towards the top of the float bowl?

Re: zenith 1 overflows.

Interesting the leak is coming out the bowl vent hole. Typically a gas leak comes out the bottom seep hole in the bottom of the air intake, or the bottom of their intake if the seep hole is plugged...
