Re: Fuel shut off valve leak

I have found this kit works good on an original valve, repros not so good. Most repros I have seen have "o" rings, not packing.

Re: Fuel shut off valve leak

After you get it to seal again I recommend you install a gas tank screen (pencil filter). https://www.snydersantiqueauto.com/product.htm?pid=979346&cat=41707

Re: Model A owners - you'll love these

AK-47's certainly were not designed to go quail hunting. They were designed specifically to KILL people. No other purpose.

Re: Air Filter

Do you have engine pans installed? My air filter fell off once but was "saved" by the engine pan.

Re: New Front Axle

The whole axle moving could be a lot of things, including, as mentioned, the wishbone ball, spring u-bolts, even the shackle bushings and lose spring perches.

Re: Problem With Ford Barn

Thank you Ryan, something like I said back in post #3. All this other BS could have been avoided.

That is all well and good for YOU and I fully understand where you are coming from. But the O/P, who originally ask the question, already has a "B" block which wouldn't have been original to his...

Re: Cost of Running Burtz Engine

I wonder the same. Even a Snyder 5.5 head that resembles a stock head can easily be spotted.

Re: Heavy Oil & Shifting

Yes, heavy oil wil slow the gears quicker. You would probably do good using a multi-grade. I use Lucas 85w-140 with good results.

Do you check the "Remember Me" box? If I don't remember to check "Remember Me" when logging on the same thing happens to me.

Re: 3.27 Gear without an Overdrive

Ron, I would like to answer that question but unfortunately my speedometer reads quite low (after being rebuilt by a well known rebuilder on here). Next time I'm out I can check my GPS for you, but...

Re: 3.27 Gear without an Overdrive

No, I start in 1st high, to 2nd high, to 3rd high. I leave it in overdrive most of the time. I shift out of O/D only when I have to on a hill that I can not pull in 3rd over.

I have shifted your...

Re: Body Shims

Yes, they are used all the time in alignment shops for the adjust caster and camber and align other suspension parts. I have also seen them used in body shops to align front fenders and such.

Re: 3.27 Gear without an Overdrive

I'm curious, does anyone have a 36% Mitchell O/D? How does it compare to the 26% O/D. I have the 26% and like I have said before, I use it more like an underdrive, keeping the Mitchell in O/D most of...

All along I was blaming the design of the clamp and tried...

Re: 3.27 Gear without an Overdrive

What body style Model A? A Heavier car like a Town Sedan or a lighter car like a Roadster? It does make a difference. Is it the Phaeton in your Avatar?

Re: Gears 3.27 vs 3.54

I use my Mitchell overdrive more as a "underdrive". Normally I leave the Mitchell in O/D and shift the Mitchel down if needed on hills. I have the stock 3.78 gears.
