Re: Points

No problems here with install or adjustment. The problem where I live is finding anyone selling the damn things. Tried auto parts and Ford dealers and they shrug their heads. All told me to go out on...

Re: Remove window trim?

Jay Jay. Many of us would be very interested in good pictures of the wood grained pieces that you have. Very close pic and the backside would be very helpful too.

Re: What am I missing? 1930 Model A

MMMm I see that what little gas is in the sediment bowl looks very, very old. The gas should fill the bowl. You may want to remove the gas cap as the vent in the cap could be crudded up.

Re: turn sigtnals

Re: Repair of Soft Wood

Well I have to agree with Brent and Mike. Something that you may want to consider is cyanoacrylate glue ("super glue") Many woodworkers have had great results. As long as you are at this point you...

Re: Original Grease Gun Rebuild

Are rebuild kits available or are we on our own? I have several and one worked pretty well but the plunger finally gave up the ghost.

Re: Why do I have to keep pulling the choke out ?

Clogged gas cap vent. Loosen the cap and start the engine and see if that helps. Often times blowing compressed air around the inside of the cap will blow the crud out.
