Re: Why a fibre thrust washer on distributor?

Ford specified .004-.010 end play. There should be a fiber washer A-22331 under the shaft collar to keep the oil out of the top housing not a steel washer. No washer goes on the bottom. The design is...

Re: Commerical Head lights

The shells are unpolished stainless. The stainless virgin cross grain has never been buffed out. The shell is painted black over the stainless. the black paint is "under" the riveted bracket.

Re: Trouble shifting into 2nd or 3rd- BUT.. Unique situation

The problem is first gear is not completely disengaged preventing second gear from engaging. A common problem with the shifter. Most likely as others have said is the shifter ball is no longer round

Re: Exhaust leak at manifold

Buy the repro exhaust and intake manifold setup. They are well worth the money and along with an Aries muffler you will achieve a leak less setup that sounds like a Model A should.

Re: Are Model A coils polarity sensitive ??

It does matter for engine performance. Simple to check. Check one plug. Remove the connector from the top of any plug. The flare should be towards the plug. If not reverse your coil wiring.
