Re: Model A Marine Engine

s.e.charles, I would venture to guess that since that post and link are almost 6 years old it is no longer good or the picture has been moved or removed?

Leave the Y-Blocks out of it......

Re: Blown HG results

Mike, I think you misunderstood what I said. If you have the 5.5 head you should use the Model "B" gasket, #573C not the 509. https://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/high-compression-head

Re: Blown HG results

Mike, I don't see it mentioned but if you have a 'high compression' head a Best 573 gasket is recommended either copper or Graphtite®.

Re: Battery in wrong

That is incorrect. The starter does not care about the polarity. My starter ran happily at 12v negative ground for many years. The generator would work fine if you 'polarize' for negative ground.

Re: Fuel Fitting Question

Re: Oil pan baffle

I find it amazing how many people put a bolt in that plug hole to "hold the oil pump". A local 'machinist' did that to my block (among other things I wasn't thrilled about) that I had main bearings...

Re: FYI - 6 Volt Bulbs

Thanks for the info Mike. Yes, I am running the 75 cp for low beam and 50 cp for high beam. I never tied low and high together for 125 cp high beam because I don't drive at night that much and I felt...

Re: Model A Charcoal Heaters

I have seen those on ebay from time to time. I almost bought one just for display. Wouldn't think they would be too safe in a enclosed car.:p:p

Re: Delco 1 wire alternator

I agree. That's why I went with the 12v PowerGen.

Re: Whats the trick to this?

FYI, Not all dead blow hammers are all plastic. I have a really nice Snap-on ball peen dead blow hammer that I use all the time. Works great with an impact driver.

Re: Spark and accelerator control rods...

I think 100IH is referring to the "rods" with the levers that go up the steering column. They would connect to the "rods" you are asking about. Sometimes picture help so we all know which part you...

Re: Shock absorber, mounting

I think the pictures are of the shocks Werner is taking off, to be replaced by his new Stipes. His question is about the arms.

Warner, not only do you have two different shocks, you have two...

Re: 1931 Model A Headlights

I use the second light in my headlight reflector for my turn signals. You can just see the amber bulb in the picture.
