Re: At What Age Do You Give It Up?

Re: Air Filter

My Weber carb for a Model A came with an air filter. Therefore, it was jetted to run with one.

If I was running a stock carb, not sure what I would do.

Re: Roadster or Coupe?

Tudor's are usually cheaper, more metal and less wood, fully enclosed, and typically a more rigid body.

Just my thoughts.

Re: Never been this old before!

I will turn 76 on my next birthday.

Keep me posted on what I have to look forward to.

Hopefully I can still kick start my old right shift Triumph motorcycles next year!

Re: Radial tires

Seems like tubes for the radial tires are hard to get now though?

Was looking for some radials til I heard about the tube issue.

Re: Another Reason to Love the A

The '30 and '31 Tudors are one of the easier A's to get in and out of it seems.

I went to Put-In-Bay around 1970, didn't see any A's there then though. A lotta cars from the 1940's though.

Re: engine oil

Brent, sounds like "off the record" that using the Shell Rotella T synthetic is probably a good a choice as anything readily available from local stores now?

Re: What was the approximate viscosity of 600W?

600W goes in the differential too I believe?

Is is ok to top it off with something else maybe?

Re: Tech help with model A cabin space.

The 1930-1931 Tudors have the most stock legroom for the driver I think?

And also have the option to move the seat fore-aft also if one wants using different brackets?

Re: F150 tranny with overdrive

So, if you have an A with a 4-speed T170 transmission that was installed some years before you bought the car, there is a tag on the trans that would tell which gear set, etc are expected to be in...
