Re: Installing MGB lever Shocks on 39 Pickup

I put Armstrong's on my 35 but had to fit them upside down on the front to avoid fouling the axle. Work just fine.

My friend Bert Thomas had an E28 AF Tudor, I could outrun it with my Model T. Gutless! My mate Willy had 30 RHD Fordor with leather interior, the new owner 'vandalised' it by fitting a Lebarron...

Oops, sorry, we're talking Model A so the tank isn't at the back.

Re: Anyone running a 6v fuel pump that is quiet?

I'm running a British SU, it just clicks every second. They come in 2 versions, a 'sucker' to mount near the motor, or a 'pusher' to mount at the tank. You wouldn't hear the one by the tank.

Re: E28 powerhouse generator parts

Yes, that's what I used to do, set the charge so it matched the headlamps. Right now the project isn't finished, no headlamps yet!

E28 powerhouse generator parts

Just broke my generator. As this an early pre Oct 28 5 brush unit, this part is probably unobtainable. Guess I have to try a repair.

Re: stromberg elictronic distributor

Only problem I had was starting on 6volt, the battery had to be fully charged otherwise the starter robbed the dizzy of power. Changed back to helmet and it fires up even if left for a month

Re: Rear shocks on a 1936 fordor

Rear shocks from a MGB will bolt on but you need a panhard rod to stop them touching the tyres.

Factory fitted heater?

According to latest newsletter from Hagerty the 1929 Model A was the first car to offer the option of a factory fitted heater. Is that true?

Re: Considering buying a T

I have an 09 T touring, 28 A rpu and my avatar V8. They are all very different drives, but the T is the lively one. Light as a daisy, go-kart steering, super fast gear shift.
I've had the T 40yrs,...

Re: Ultrasonic cleaner

Got one just big enough to hold a V8 Stromberg, with heat & timer. Does a great job, judging by all the muck in the bottom of the tank. Not done my A carb yet.

Re: Headlights for my '28

Second that. I have the same situation. You need to change reflectors and light switch to get parking lights + low/high beam. Question is..do you need parking lights?

Re: LED Headlights

Interesting comments from Keith. Only thing I can say is that the changeover on my VW didn't change the pattern and it passed inspection with the old style beam tester. My V8 is exempt inspection,...

Re: Stromberg 81 vs 97, rebuild or new?

I'll second that. When I said I completely stripped I meant COMPLETELY went through it, just fitting a kit won't fix everything that could be wrong.
