Re: U Joint Quality

Not trying to pick a fight here but just because something is US made doesn't mean it's high quality and just because something is "foriegn" made doesn't mean it is not.
The US has about 5% of the...

Re: Swapping to collapsible steering column?

I'll see what I can do. I don't own a mobile phone so I'll have to get someone else to take the pictures but down loading and up loading them has me all turned around!!!

Re: water pump end play how to stop?

It is most likely just too much end play in the shaft. Try one of these https://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/ProductDetail/A-8511-C_PUMP-THRUST-COLLAR-WASHER?fromCategory=Products/model-a/water-pump

Re: Swapping to collapsible steering column?

Yours is a sensible question if you are going to fit only lap belts. I regard those as next to useless for the driver but I have them in my car for the passengers because they don't have to worry...

Re: That "Opportunity Knocks" Engine

I've heard of dud blocks being substituted for good ones by engine rebuilders. I insist in the same engine back again. I note the number and make sure the rebuilder knows I have the number. I also...

Re: Heater

And blow hot air straight onto the driver's crotch!.
BTW, the waffle manifold is impossible if you want to retain manual ignition timing.

Re: air bubbles in rad water.

I also believe in that. When I fit a new head gasket, I start and let the engine idle till it is up to operating temp, then turn it off. Once it is completely cool again, I retorque the nuts. I...

Re: Using Ford Barn as an distraction

Please accept my condolences from about as far away from you as one can get - Australia. Some days are crap from the start.

Re: 6 Volt Bermuda Bell on 12 Volt Car

If you only usually blow a 20 amp fuse but not always, it is obvious to me that the solenoid draws about 20 amps It takes a resistance of 0.6 of an ohm to get that (R=V/I or 0.6=12/20) meaning that...

Re: 1930 Model A Tool box

I made my own. They are not difficult but if you think your skills are not up to it, I'd be disappointed if there was nobody prepared to help.

Re: Clutch restauration, some questions

If they are built, they can be rebuilt. It might take equipment knowledge and patience that not all of us have but they are rebuilt everyday for trucks etc.

Re: How Many Model A's are left ?

This thread so far has reminded me of one of my late father's favourite lines. "If all the economists in the world were laid end to end, they still wouldn't reach .... a conclusion!"

Re: Removed engine; some improvements?

Werner, I did not use the commercially available repair kit. I didn't think they are good enough so I used modern bearings. I suggest you keep an eye on the hubs to see that they don't wear too...

Re: Rsk

Sounds to me like it's runing lean. Take it out again and when it starts bucking, give it a bit of choke. If it runs better, it is lean. Look for a leaky manifold or similar.
You say you had the...
