Re: "It ran well when I parked it!"

Take it on longer and longer trips and your confidence will build to the point that you are ready to drive it to Chicago. Just an old saying. Have fun.

Re: 29 coup rad

Sounds like your shell is being held high by something. The radiator fill collar, where the cap goes on, should stick up, well above the shell surface. Good luck.

Re: Pressurized Radiator

You are just asking for trouble. With a free flowing radiator, you won’t hav a cooling issue.

Re: Coolant level

You should not have to add coolant very often. If it keeps going away, you have a problem.

Re: Over Heating

90% of cooling problems are caused by a plugged radiator. 90 % is just my number.
Don’t fight all the band aids. Buy a new core and enjoy your car.

Re: missing or stumbling on acceleration

Make sure the fuel runs freely through the filter. Some need pressure to push the fuel through.

Re: Starter Problem - caught on fire

Bench test the starter. I bet it’s okay. The short sounds like it was between the switch and ground.

Re: Starter switch

Put it in third and push it to see if the engine rotates. If it won’t, push like hell backwards until you hear it free up. Don’t push forward. Good luck

Re: Exh gasket cond. Q.

They do fail fairly often, and need changing. Keep those four bolts tight.

Re: Roadster Backfiring

Make sure you don’t have an intake leak at manifold and carb flange. Make sure. Sometimes hard to find.

Re: Blocking the Firewall Heater Tube

Remove the manifold cover and clamp on a spray can top. Looks good and fits good.

Re: Hot Dipstick

Our club was on an expressway run for about 30 miles. We stopped to check our oil, and no one could touch their dipstick.

Re: Blown fuse

The wiring in an A is very simple. Not much to it. Find the short and fix it. Enjoy that beautiful car.

Re: Broken clutch arm

When you put on the beefed up arm, be sure you get full range and you can connect the linkage without interference. We had to grind a bit to get things to fit. Good luck. Should not be a hard job.

It's not a lose connection, it is a short to ground.

Re: Blown fuse

Find the short and fix it. A good visual check might show where it is. Wiggle everything you can reach. Could be fuse the holder, probably a wire rubbing on the edge of some metal. Try all the...

Re: 2 Tooth Steering Sector

Better change the worm gear also. The wear is in the center of the worm and a new sector won't fix it. When you adjust the new sector teeth down to the worn worm in the center, it will bind when...
