Re: Multiple Oil Leaks after sitting?

Hi Daryl,

on my revised engine, the crankshaft rear seal started to leak badly after 2000 miles. About 8 ounces for 100 miles.

I took thick SAE 50 oil, tried STP thickener - there was little...

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

The performance of the engine and its idling have remained unchanged.

The spark plug inner insulators are much cleaner. If you peer into the combustion chamber through the plug bores, you can see...

Re: Champion 3x electrode

I thought such little things were only repaired in the poor times in Germany.



Here are some interesting things from my old spark plug collection. There were also spark plugs that could be...

Re: Torque wrench

Russel,

the instruction manual for my high-quality 'Hazet' torque wrench says:

"It must always be stored relaxed. After a long period of non-use, it should be set to the highest level and...

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

Hi Ugly,

use approximately 1:400. That's 3.5 US fl oz on 11 gallons of fuel. Much more is not necessary and also not helpful.

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

Old Ugly,

MMO has two great characteristics. The ester oil is extremely temperature stable and supports the boundary lubrication on the valve stems and also the top dead center piston + cylinder....

Re: Champion 3x electrode

Griffin,

this is an ancient spark plug like the one used in the past. Collectible. Nowadays the ground electrode sits above the middle electrode.


btw.: Modern iridium spark plugs are...

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

Was that rubber seals? In this application, cork gasket is the better way.

MMO contains synthetic ester oil and isoalkanes as well as cycloalkanes. These attack some plastics. Rubber seals swell...

Re: Vacuum Gauge (new)

I have a Problem:

The pointer vibrates a lot, so I'm afraid that the device will not be durable for a long time. I temporarily delayed the passage with a hose clamp. But that is not a permanent...

Re: Vacuum Gauge (new)

Aretino,
yes you are right. What we change on the A should be adapted to the filigree style of the original time.

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

Eagle, what you write is entirely and completely correct! The addition to the fuel has the most efficient effect because the amount of fuel increases with the engine power. (Therefore I add 40 cm³...

Re: Clear Distributor Cap

Katy,
This is made with hard fuse wire from aircraft maintenance and a drill pliers. The reason is that the remanufactured contact strips from the distributor arm to the spark plugs have too less...

Re: Marvel Mystery Oiler

There are two systems to inject MMO. That, what I use sprays the oil into the cylinders when the vakuum pressure under the carbureter ventury is low. That is when the engine is pushed without any...

Re: Vacuum Gauge (new)

Guten Abend miteinander.


Mounted in such a way in the field of eye vision, the vacuum meter is at least an eye-catcher.
As mentioned before, the device is more a technical toy than a real...

Re: Clear Distributor Cap

Hi',


in the meantime, I have tested the transparent cover several times. Great disappointment was that the spark jumps are very mild and barely visible.
Joy was to recognize by it, that the...

Re: Original color ignition cable

Guten Tag,

this is helpful, thanks! Then I understand correctly that all cables - ignition and electrical - were black at that time except the ignition lock cable in the steel armor tube?

Original color ignition cable

Please, what was the color for the ignition wire between i-coil/distributor center on the 1928- Model A.

Black or red?

Re: Clear Distributor Cap

Good morning!


In the meantime, my clear distributor cap is largely finished.

Patiently, the current lead through had to be tricky. From 4 short brass tubes I soldered the gradation for the...

Re: Vacuum Gauge (new)

Update.



Today I received the Ebay vacuum gauge. I restored it gently without destroying the dignified patina.

The gauge is not necessary, but it is a nice sign of the motorworld times. I...

The second attempt is successful, not very good but good; there are still some tiny air bubbles visible.

The next step is to insert an electric current carbon inside...

Re: steering gear leaking

I have solved the same problem very simple. On the outer end of the gear sector shaft, I slipped a tight O-ring over against the gear case. Then the shaft on this area coated with thin...

Re: Clear Distributor Cap

Good evening at all.


Unfortunately, I couldn't find anyone who sells a transparent manifold cover. Creating a file for 3-D part printing is too expansiv. So I now tried to cast it by myself...

Re: another dumb question?

No, this is not a children's fairy tale. Because two things have to be considered.
