Re: Marvel Carburetor Disection

Does the GAV act the same way in the Marvel Schebler as in the Zenith?
How much do you open it at start, and how much in normal running?

Herb Concord, I think you answered this question - thanks.

Re: Marvel Carburetor

My car runs most days, but lately won't start. When I try to start her, I see fuel which moistens the joint where the Marvel carb meets the intake manifold. Has to be a failed gasket, right? Would...

Re: Marvel Carburetor Disection

Thanks for this wonderful dissection. My A has this carb. Question: is your starting routine any different with this carb? More choke? Less choke? How much GAV? How much throttle at start?

What is this carb?

What is this carb on my A? Doesn't look like a Zenith nor a Tillotson.

Re: Position of the spark lever question

My Model A will run one day, next day won't start. I understand that each car's GAV and spark advance lever position will be a bit different. Trying to start with full retard (up position) - no...

My A is restored and in very nice condition. She starts about half the time. I have new plugs and a new head installed by my restorer, a professional. I believe my starting problems are...

Re: Gremlins in the wiring

Mister Moose, my A does the exact same thing: intermittent, and my lights fail too. I'll have to double check the battery-to-ground cable, and the battery itself. My A has an aftermarket battery...

Re: Engine RPMs

To all - your responses are super-helpful, especially the table from AlexisKai. Conclusion from the table: driving at 25 MPH in 2d is about 2000 RPM. Shifting into 3d will drop RPM to about 1100...

Engine RPMs

What speed do you find yourself shifting into 3d? Is there a chart of RPM v. MPH for each gear in the Model A? I find myself driving around town in 2d at higher revs, because the engine seems...
