Re: Clutch chatter project results

What does the steel plate on top of the FAM mount actually do? It looks like it just sits there.

Re: 1928 Oil Pan

If the engine is clean inside and you use detergent oil and service it regularly I see no advantage in replacing the existing pan.

Re: Spark Control . . . on hills, under load, etc.

My problem is that I can't hear higher frequencies any more, so I can't hear the ping, years ago I could.
I'm considering installing a knock sensor: http://www.viatrack.ca

Re: Window Riser Handles - Original or Repro?

From way back I don't remember the handles having holes for pins and also holes for set screws, they only had the holes for pins.
And they weren't roll pins, just straight pins.

Re: Stubborn Zenith

Have you done a compression test and a leak down test? A bad valve will cause a poor idle but will be masked at speed.

Re: tell a Model A related story

I have lived on 2 different streets that were quite short and dead ended. It amazed me how fast most of the vehicles traveled up and/or down those short streets. I didn't have a Model A at those...

Re: Stubborn Zenith

What camshaft are you running? Stock? Or? If a stock camshaft, what shape is it in? A badly worn camshaft can cause idle problems.

Re: Distributor Part Fits

Just drive it. One can restore it to like new specs but 10,000 or 20,000 or 50,000 miles down the road is a different story.

Can you establish what material the chips are? Aluminum? Babbit?

Re: roadster top treatment?

First question: What material is the top made of? Knowing this will have a huge effect on what to use on it.

Re: Cotter pins

In a past life, in a pinch, I've used a nail to replace a cotter pin. I'm sure jillions of others have done the same thing.
