Re: Clutch restauration, some questions

The one on the left is a good one because it has reinforcing tangs to keep the springs secure. I have one on my car.

Re: Removed engine; some improvements?

Check all of your transmission bearings, maybe replace gaskets, and check gears for pitting and broken teeth. Do the pedals need to be rebushed or new shafts?

Re: Tudor pronunciation

I believe there was a thread on this but I forgot about it. Tudor and Fordor are pronounced just as they sound like two-door and four-door. Fordor got its name as a play on words from Ford, but I do...

Re: Oil for model a+ t

Antique Engine Rebuilding near me says no Zinc. Zinc only need for steel camshafts, Model A has cast iron camshaft. Furthermore, a majority of people use no zinc and everything is fine.

Re: Stubborn Conpensator Jet Removal

Tried heat before but didn't work as it didn't come off and the screw head broke in two! Usually heat does the trick but this one is quite stubborn.

Re: What have you found working on your A?

I found a lot of sand toward the back of the curtain pan in my Roadster. Not sure if it is media sand or beach sand as my car was from Florida.
