Default Any model a guy's close to leo Indiana?!

I just picked up a 29 model A pickup and am in the process of bringing it back to life, this is my first time working on something this old. After getting it home I inspected all the brakes, changed all fluids added a new distributor, carb, battery, had the radiator flushed, installed a ton of new parts and with help from my riding mowers gas tank I got it started! So I would love to pick someone's brain on the last few issues I'm having with it. The fan is blowing oil coming from my fill tube all over my block, I had yet to install the copper scrubing pad witch I'm hoping will help. Driving it my clutch engages WAY up top so that needs adjusted but the brakes seem to work good. Door alignment is off so I think I need a new wood kit, it's a project by it is alive after sitting since 2008!!!

I recommend not using a scrubbing pad. You take a chance of material falling into the engine. Try to find an accessory filler cap that has a metal hose that directs blowby below the engine.

Good advice and that accessory is available at Snyders or Macs. Wayne

Pete, I'm assuming your talking about the Leo In near Fort Wayne, if so there is a MARC Model A club there - it's worth joining and they could probably help you :
