Re: Ford Model A engine noise

Sounds like a vacuum leak between the carb and manifold. If you have a Tillotson carb the flange can warp, you can use a flat file on the carb to smooth it out and a new gasket should help.

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

I have used them a few times and they have always been very careful with the Model A.

Re: Preston “ALL VEHICLES” Antifreeze

How about your local autoparts store, they should have some brand of GREEN ethylene glycol (which is an IAT opposed to OAT/HOAT compound) antifreeze.

Re: 6v t0 12 v

Yes, as Herb Concord says, the key is using proper size wire. I was having an intermittent problem and cleaned all the connections and used new 14g wire and the problem disappeared. These OD's...

Re: Bearing adjustments

I would check all the babbitt bearings (Rods & Mains) at 20K intervals.

Re: 1/2” Bendix

The issue is that it is not a Bendix starter drive, the 1/2" shaft used an Able starter drive which are not available. Easier to change to a starter with a 5/8" drive.

Re: Borg-Warner OD Wiring

I think the switch you installed is better than the kickdown switch.
Also make sure you check the oil regularly as the planetary gear needs lubrication or the small needle bearings will fail.

Re: Borg-Warner OD Wiring

The unit drops out of overdrive so if you go into reverse you wont do any harm but you won't be able to back up until you pull the cable and lock the unit into direct drive.

Re: Borg-Warner OD Wiring

If you use the factory centrifugal switch in conjunction with the solenoid you don't have to worry about reverse. As you slow down the switch cuts out at 20 MPH and breaks the circuit to the...

Re: Looking for seller of Penrite steering box lube

Ariens snowblowers use the same Semi-liquid grease (NGLI-00) for their auger gears. How ever anything from Ariens is a little expensive. I think the squeeze tube was $14.00.

Re: Looking for References in Portland OR Area

I would contact someone in the Beaver Model A Club in Portland to see if they know someone who could help out.

Re: Rich Bell passed away

I probably met Rich in the mid 70's, most likely at a flea market, bought lots of parts from over the years. He was a wealth of information and I enjoyed listening to his stories of Model A'ing in...

Re: Borg Warner OD Question

Tom Endy has an excellent write up on the Borg-Warner overdrive. It explains the operation very well.

Re: rear end/ spring

Re: Lighting for speedometer and gas gauge

I agree with Jim, have been doing this for years. A #67 12 volt bulb works just fine.

Re: Wishing everyone a glorious Sunday!

It was beautiful in Massachusetts today as well. I passed on the yard work and went for a Model A ride with my wife.

Re: Tow Companies

Strange, their website specifically states 4 tows up to 100 miles.
Sounds like the local company is not following the guidelines.
