Spring Mounted engine mounts for Model A

I have a Float a motor kit installed in the rear engine mounts of my 1930 Coupe.

The rubber donuts are very stiff, in my mind not giving much vibration absorption. Has anyone tried replacing the...

Model A Distributor with Centrifugal Advance

Is there a 4 cyl distributor with centrifugal advance available at auto wreckers that would fit a Model A (with minimum modifications)?

Re: Engine Knock at 2000 RPM

I will double check that today, but pretty sure I have done that with no change---will let you know.

Re: Engine Knock at 2000 RPM

Knock is only under load and 2000 rpm +. Can not hear knock sitting still and revving the engine with no load. Noise is there in all gears at 2000+.

Re: Engine Knock at 2000 RPM

It is knock that was there from day one of the overhaul (but fairly quiet). The knock seems to be getting louder at 2000 rpm and above.

Analysis of the oil shows high copper, iron, lead, and tin.

Re: Keyed 6 volt source

Thks for the reply. I originally connected to the input side of the gen cut out, but there is insufficient voltage until about 800-1000 rpm. If possible, I'd like to have an ign key source.

Keyed 6 volt source

Has any one come up with a way to have 6v switched on and off by the ignition key?
