Re: stay running

With carb off, take a big file and clean up both flanges. Shiny everywhere. They do warp and let air in.

Re: stay running

Make sure your spark lever is up when you try to restart. My guess is, you have an intake manifold , or carb flange air leak.

Re: Crankshaft in New Rebuilt Model A Engine Won't Turn

First put the car in third gear and push really hard backwards. Not forward. It just may turn.
Pulling the starter and doing the screw driver thing would work too.

Re: Why is it hard to find 30w oil

Use the new stuff. Much better and that engine does not care.

Re: Fan Belt Tension

Not a tight belt. Puts too much bending load on the fan to pump shaft joint.

Re: Radiator flow rate

That filling the radiator and letting it drain is a very poor test of anything. If you question your flow rate, and you are running hot, then that old radiator is plugged. Most are and people try...

Re: Head Removal

As you are taking it off or putting it on, be sure to use small blocks or sticks when you get it up a little. They can slam down and pinch your fingers.

Re: Alternator vs. Generator Pulley

Run the belt as loose as possible to reduce the side load on the fan attachment to the pump shaft. It's a tapered fit and will wobble if it is not a perfect fit. The way Henry designed it, the load...

Re: Engine missing at highway speeds

Your fuel line might be going in too far into the carb. The end hits the screen in there and just lets a little fuel flow. It should be cut off right after the ferrule.

Re: How many miles between oil changes?

You are safe at 2000miles. Just make sure the oil stays clean. If you drive it just once in a while, then every 500 miles. So, somewhere between as long as it stays fairly clean. Just my opinion....

Re: Rough Running - Sometimes

If you just put on a new fuel line, it could be it is too far into the carb and restricting flow. Let us know what you find.

Re: Rough Running - Sometimes

Next time it does it, jump out and pour some water on the carb. If it helps, you know where the problem is.

Re: Strange Noise - Need Help to ID

Those hood prop brackets can cause a noise problem. It took a rubber band to stop my noise.

Re: Strange Noise - Need Help to ID

Reach up under the gas tank where the big clamps are that mounts the tank to the car. One of mine came loose and made a terrible noise rattling around, still hanging from the flange. I thought it...

With the starter removed, see if you can turn the engine over by rocking it.
