Re: Which Model A for a coast to coast trip?

I kinda half agree. We travel with the side curtains off.

Re: Tires

Freight to Australia would cost me my first born except that I have a contact who can bring them over by surface freight. It costs a tiny fraction of the normal air freight but it takes 5 months...

Re: Which Model A for a coast to coast trip?

R, We are already friends on this forum and I would not miss the chance to tell Model A stories about our travels too. I just don't remember who I have told what to so you might get some you have...

Re: Bill Williamson

I didn't realise Buster had gone. Losing one's dog is nearly as bad as it gets.
BTW, Vermin is in Australia now, I believe. Bill asked me by PM what I thought about selling overseas, that's how I...

Re: Tires

3 out of my 4 Model As are 21" wheels. I have seen a couple of later cars with 19" radials fitted and the owners like them but 21" seem to be pretty rare and no one I have encountered has used or...

Re: Which Model A for a coast to coast trip?

My wife and I have done several trips over here in our Phaeton and we love using unsealed roads. I guess you will be on sealed roads so a closed car should be OK. We used the Phaeton because the...

Re: Knock on Model A's door

In a largely unsuccessful attempt to prevent those noises, Ford installed a rubber pad on the door sill that the door sat on and another at the top. The idea was that the door would be held between...

Re: Took my 30 coupe out for a spin

If enough people adhere to distancing and isolation laws, I think we will see a big drop in the number of new infections in that time but that is NOT the end of it. The end can't come until an...

Re: Took my 30 coupe out for a spin

That is correct. I expect the next stage of restrictions will ban exercise as well.

Re: Bill Williamson

I hope he gets to see Buster now and then. I'm sure that would cheer him up no end. (Buster too)

Re: 1928 Canadian Tudor

That doesn't look like a factory stamp to me-more like it was done in someone's back yard. My understanding of Canadian engine numbering is that they start with a "C", then a number similar to what...

Re: Took my 30 coupe out for a spin

Even though I have driven thousands of miles over there, it still looks weird being on that side of the road.
I'd love to be able to go for a drive but unless we are out of the house for one of...

Re: Tight Valve Guides

I wouldn't hone the holes unless you have a way of making them smaller again. One enlarged, the block is pretty much useless for another rebuild with properly sized guides.

Re: Crime Does Not Pay.

We're taking a side track here but my 8 year old grandson asked what these things are on the door. He was pointing to a window winder handle in the back of my car. Our explanation and demonstration...

Re: Coronavirus vs "A" Drive

Karl,Your Government has done very well on this. Your PM has my admiration for her actions and that is no comment on her politics. I know virtually nothing of NZ politics.

Re: Coronavirus vs "A" Drive

I don't want this to sound political - I know that's not allowed but politics and the Government's response to this thing are intertwined. Over here, we have had 24 deaths from the virus and our...

Re: Installing New Head Gasket

Last month, I was tidying up a motor that has done who knows how many miles. It has been sleeved and is out to +0.080" again. While cleaning out the water jacket, I found 2 chunks of cast iron - both...

Re: Finding TDC for leak-down test

How about you leave the distributor right where it is and watch the arm stop at the same place in relation to #2 contact in the body as it was on #1. You'll be within a few degrees - plenty close...
