Re: Replacing typical rust areas on the 1930 Model A truck

I am capable of welding it with any systems there are and having taught welding many years ago, and you being on a budget, I would recommend you use an acetylene or hydrogen torch. Yes, it is old...

Re: Cosmoline is pretty tough !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hot tank will take paper and all off in about 15 minutes.
In lieu of that any typical wash cabinet as used by engine machine shops works good.

Re: Drivetrain Advice Needed

First off, for what it is worth, zephyr gears are stronger than other stock gears. The 25 tooth being the strongest. It is not the steel, it is the laws of physics.
Next, you won't notice any...

Re: Do you have any pin up girls with your Model A?

The gun is fake. The other stuff, not so much.

Re: bore

Another common problem is getting the ends of the expander overlapped instead of butted together.

Re: Do you have any pin up girls with your Model A?

I was always partial to Bettie Page. I met her at a photo shoot once.

Re: 59 Camshaft oiling

Either 1 or 2 oil groove rear journal cores will work in the early blocks.

Re: 59 Camshaft oiling

1.794 is minimum journal size for standard bearings in a street engine.

I would not put .010 OVER bearings in a street engine.

.010 UNDER are available.

Another core is better than grinding...

Re: F.a.s.t.

I am already in but if it becomes digital I am out.

Adjust the subscription rate so it can be a slick again. You have to pay to play.

Re: Which fuel fittings?

Change to STEEL fuel line like original and the problems will go away.
In some places, copper fuel and brake lines are illegal and insurance companies definitely don't like them.

Re: Mitchell Overdrive

I don't like driveshaft overdrives and their associated shifting mechanisms. They add unsprung weight which you definitely don't need.
I use T5's or Richmond's. About the same price either way when...

Re: Stromberg 48

Look up "Uncle Max" or "Charlie NY" on the Fordbarn early V8 forum. They both have rebuilt ones.

For what it is worth, rope wrapped steering wheels were popular with the NASCAR modified's in the mid 50's.

Re: What clutch would you use?

I think the company gave up in the late 90's.

They show on Ebay quite often. Some models of John Deere tractors used them.

The 9 inch Auburn clutch is a very good choice.

It is obvious, the narrator was not a flathead engine guy and was just reading from a script

Re: What clutch would you use?

A 9 inch can easily be made to handle 400 hp at home.
Be sure to have the assembly balanced on the crank you are going to run.

Re: Gas rationing A decals

Just curious, what are the parameters for an "authentic reproduction"?
Do they need to have 80 years of age showing?
