Drain most of the gas out and then jack the right hand side of the car up and put blocks or axle stands under it (for safety) before removing the valve.

Re: Small circuit breaker heats and opens

I always understood that a volt meter measures volts, not amps. And an ammeter measures amps.

I've never thought of driving a Model A or any of the other old cars as "fun", just nostalgic. I guess when I drove them "back then" they were just transportation and filled a need.

I've been using chassis grease in wheel bearings for over 60 years and never had a problem related to the grease.

The problem w/anything less than 100 ft-lbs is the sideways flexing strain on the taper when going around corners.

Re: New to Model A and Starter Question


Cables should be at least #1, preferably 1/0 (one ought) or 2/0. During cranking of a cold engine starter draw can reach around 300 amps, so you need good cables to ensure good starter...
