Re: Fake eBay listing

He is telling you it’s a Model A Ford?

Re: Lebaron Bonney is Bankrupt

We have always used a customer top and interior shop. There are great ones all around the country. You get to pick out everything before hand, and work with an owner in person.

Re: Wheel Balance with Dyna Beads

I feel like I am missing something here.

I have never had to balance a tire on any of the Model A’s that we have owned. I do stay under 50 mph. Is this a known problem or does balancing just...

Re: How much grease in the clamshell?

I have had to put in up to one full tube of John Deere Cornhead Grease. I guess it all depends on how long it has been since the last time it was serviced.

Be careful with the nuts on speedo...

Re: axle key

Bob:

I agree. If key is removed/broken and torque on taper is to loose, car will not move. If torqued properly, car will still move even without key. However, the axel will eventually start...

Re: axle key

One of the great things about this forum is all the different views members have and sometime voice.

I guess you could refer to the rear axel key as a “shear key”, but I don’t believe that is...

Re: axle key

I don’t know about the Ford name on keys, but please don’t forget to re-torque the axel nuts to 100 foot pounds when you put it back together. Enjoy.

Re: Oil on Spark Plug

Just replace the plugs and cross your fingers.

You might not have to fix something that isn’t broken. Enjoy.

Re: Engine oil measuring rod

To get it truly correct. You have to add 4 1/2 quarts of oil at oil change.

1/2 quart is left in dipper tray at time of oil change. Engine takes 5 quarts if your system where completely dry. ...

Re: Best lubrication for transmission ?

We have been using 50/50 mix of STP and 600w oil from Mac’s.

The last bottle of 600w oil that we received from Mac’s looked and felt like STP.

Re: Hole in dash.

Toggle switches have standard mounting hole sizes.

1/2 inch for most. If your hole is that size, mostlikely cut for a toggle switch.

Re: Title change

Dennis: talk to a car title company. They may be able to get this done the way you would like. Phone call canít hurt.
