Re: Not Model A but Model A Era

Bantams still show up now and again at car shows. A contraption like that would not work in this day and age, attorneys would have a field day if someone even got a scratch...

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

Harpkatt, they won't do that anymore according to my towing buddy. He said you have to call AAA first and get a 'job number' and then give it to him and he will come out. But many times AAA will go...

Re: 1927 Introduction of Model A

I watched this show and they were inaccurate on so many levels. Very disappointing. It's like they either did not take time to research or just didn't think people would care.

Re: Centering 1930 Model A Deluxe Coupe on towing trailer

I have a 10K equipment trailer and do exactly what Jack Shaft does. My A hardly moves my Dodge Ram 2500 rear end down much, but I can tell when there is a bit of weight on the tongue.

I do what 1931flamingo does. I use either MMO or SeaFoam, whichever is on sale. The A starts first time every time and seems to idle smoother.. I will attest to having a gas EZ-GO utility cart which...

Re: Model A Missing Badly

Mine did the same thing last year. Found out the screw that holds the timing cam in place had loosened up. New cam and screw solved the problem for me.

Re: Do YOU single-clutch ?

I normally single clutch on upshifts, double-clutch with 'rev match' on 3-2 and 2-1 downshifts. No grinding whatsoever unless I hurry it.
