Re: Model A Registration Woes

Go to the DMV and be straight up about what is going on. If it can be worked out you will have a car you like and will have no worries going forward.
If it turns out you will need to jump through a...

Making new hole in firewall for heater

A recent post on installing a manifold heater got me to wondering.
Putting aside the question of weather you or should or should not do this.

How would you or have you went about cutting a new...

Unless it is a special bolt/head I would use the standard pitch heli coil and use a different bolt.

Re: air bubbles in rad water.

Motomo

Have you checked your head nut torque since the engine was installed?
If not you might cure your issues just by re-torquing them.
I am a firm believer in checking the torque on a new...

Re: Trans Bearings

I too would like to know what the "trick" is to get the o-rings in place without them being damaged while installing them.

I've had excellent success keeping the original style shafts from...

Re: Trans Bearings

Don't just replace the front and rear bearings. Replace all of the bearings while you have it apart.

Re: New Radiator and Losing Coolant

Loosing two gallons of coolant is alarming.

Re: Master Cylinder & Left Hand Parking Brake on Early 28

I can't help you with the hydraulic brake questions. The early Model A's that had the handle on the left did not have emergency/parking brakes. The left side mounted handle only set the service...

Re: Carb Rebuild

The carburetor cleaner you get in the gallon can at auto parts stores is a very good way to go. It does not affect the brass plugs. I let carburetors soak at least overnight. Soak the jets, floats...

Re: Patina makes this too good to restore?

Mine started out just like that. I completely went through it and made it mechanically sound. Replaced the roof, windows and put a good interior in it. I buffed the rust with a fine grade wire...

Re: 6V versus 12V (stupid ques. I'm a newbie)

Adding a second tail light is a good idea. You can then add the two lights that fit between the two front bumper rails and set up your car with turn signals.
Hand signal are "okay" to use but many...

Re: Model A backfire, can't move

Sorry I didn't explain that too clearly.
Basically if the contact point that screws in and out of to make the adjustment can't be clamped down on hard enough to hold it in place you will need to...

Re: Model A backfire, can't move

Had a situation like yours once. The gap in the block that holds the movable points didn't have a large enough of a gap to allow it to squeeze the movable point enough to hold it in place. I had to...

Re: Oil In My Water

Simple Green is a great product to use for getting grease and oils out. I didn't mention it in my earlier post as using it diluted may not be strong enough to clear it out. That is unless you put...

Re: Trans oil leaking from speedo housing

If it started to drip only after you added the oil it seems to me that you may have filled it too full and the excess is finding its way out through the rear bearing. Pull the plug on the side of the...

Re: Oil In My Water

Good chance it is just grease from the water pump. If you don't see any water in the oil I would consider draining the coolant and putting water and a detergent in the cooling system and run it for a...

Re: oil leak, B/W O/D

I don't think Dodge meant for you to put the brake cleaner inside but to use it on the outside of the joint to get it squeaky clean before putting a bead around the joint. I did the same thing to the...

Re: Engine Oil consumption

I use no oil in between 500 mile oil changes but my engine is fairly fresh at around 6000 miles.

So to me that is not a good comparison to your engine that has 45,000 miles on it.
