Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

Nice car. It sounds like you drive it, which is the best part.

Re: Model A intake manifold

I have never seen one of these. Guess it's a forerunner to the power valve.

Re: Replacement radiator fan for 292

I have never seen a water pump that the bolt holes on the flange are not threaded all the way through. I have a 57 292, and I put a 6 blade fan on this past year. I am betting that it's washers,...

Re: Pictures how install AC condenser

Hmmmm. when I was at good-guys a few years ago the guys at Vintage Air told me you want the condensor as close as you can get it to the radiator without touching it. I said like a piece of...

Re: Front engine mount for 292 Y-block

I read the applications above, but I'm still curious. My 57 Skyliner has a 292. Guess I wanna look, nonetheless.

Block the engine close, then deflate the front tires to get the height you...

Re: Fordomatic late shifting ('57 thunderbird)

How did the pinion seal project go? How did you do that? Seems like there are two seals. Did you order them both, or how do you know which one you need, and where did you get it?

Re: Engine upgrade

The high compression head actually makes an engine run cooler. You would think otherwise. As far as the radiator goes, it has more to do with just the comfort of driving than anything. It makes...

Re: Duel exhaust

I paid big bucks for the exhaust kit from that family owned company in Michigan. It was a disaster. I will not be using them again! Dave is right, try to find a small shop that will take the...

Re: Engine upgrade

I have had both the 3/4 Winfield, and the touring grind cam in my car. The 3/4 cam gave more speed, but not enough torque. I now have a fresh engine with the IB-30 cam, and the big valves. All...

Re: Pressurizing Rocker Shafts

Can we all agree that frequent oil changes are cheap, and a great first step?

Re: Does your Model A overheat ?

I also have noticed better cooling with engine pans. I think it creates an area of negative pressure behind the engine.

Re: 66 mustang

To be honest, with that amount of rust a new body may be the best option if you intend to hold the car a long time. Welding and fitting are time consuming tasks. The issue with buying a new body...

Re: Problems "A" New Owner May Encounter

I have never driven a T, but wonder why anyone would own one. They are a lot of work just to drive. My club had a training session that taught the ladies how to start and drive the A. My wife told...

Re: Reproduction Shock Absorbers

They never last. I switched my A over to the oil filled tube shocks that the late RainmakerRon (Ron Cloat) sold. I am not sorry one bit. But then again, I drive my A. Some people are purists,...

Re: Oil

Anymore it's not so much the weight, as it is the chemistry.

Re: Pertronix Coil

I avoid their products. I have heard a few times, over the years, that if their stuff is bad out of the box they won't make good on it. Their standard answer is you didn't read the directions. ...

Re: What is a "reasonable" speed in a Model A for one to get "reasonable" engine life

Brent, my A snapped a crank. I saw above where you said "failure to grind the proper radii on each end of the journal pin". He said the radius was the thing that caused the crank to snap. I sent...

Re: this is what I drug home yesterday- not Ford

Nice car Ronn. Those Buicks tend to go for a fair amount of money when in very good shape.

Re: Heater no hot air from Heater?

If no heat, the heater hoses may be on backwards. If no air, my 57 Fairlane has a little door at the bottom of the heater box (above the hump) that just flips open and closed with your finger.
