Maybe I spoke to quickly but I hate it when the resto guys gang up on someone. There are many ways to enjoy the A. Brendan has a nice touring car it's just lowered a little.

Mike you were not who my comment was directed at. Your always trying to help people out.in true Model A guy fashion. Thanks for that

Carl if you like them and they work for you that's all that matters.

'maybe I spoke to quickly'.....
Yeah, maybe we ALL spoke too quickly !
Reviewing the original post, he complained about his car operation, BUT never asked for help ! A couple of us went into auto pilot and assumed that he wanted/needed help in figuring out his car situation. Again proving the old saying....that when you/me ASSUME.... !

Furthermore, aside from one snide remark, the sum total input was to try solving what was not ask to be solved. Proof of this is that the original poster never came back to help answer questions that might help him...go figure human beings out

I just was saying that some days it runs good and others it dose not. I was wondering if you guys experienced the same thing. also not opening my tool box on a 250 mile run was pretty good.
