Re: Assembly of steering column

Don't put anything sticky on the big cork gasket. Things have to slide for adjustment.

Re: Engine Stalls at Stop Signs

I’d sure double check the flatness of the carb and manifold flange. Any leak at all here could cause this. Or some small leak in the manifold. Sometimes those are hard to find. Good luck and let us...

Re: Fatigue Cracks In Model "A" Parts

Where the radiator intake connects to the top tank is a frequent fatigue failure. The upper hose is very stiff and as the engine moves, especially with float-a-motors, it put high stress into that...

Re: Tires

With a town sedan, I know what you don’t want. I had the low cost tires from Vietnam and the yaw was so severe, I could hardly drive it. With a little steering input, my quail moved left and right3...

Re: Fatigue Cracks In Model "A" Parts

That clutch arm is a good one, and we have all replaced cracked engine mounts. Both of those are fatigue.

Re: Removing 1930 front fenders

I think I just put a board vertically just inside the frame. You just need 1/32in clearance. This does not involve anything in the rear.

Re: Fatigue Cracks In Model "A" Parts

Probably the most frequent crack is on the front fenders. On the top and traveling outward to the edge bead. It would be interesting to put a set of strain gages on them.

I’m sure the engine...

Re: Oil Pump Question

The gaskets have nothing to do with the pump putting out high pressure. It’s a positive displacement pump and if the gears turn, the oil goes up. If that flow is restricted, the pressure will go up...

I did it right by the engine mount. Just takes a little.

Re: Removing 1930 front fenders

Loosen that front body mount, jack it up a bit, and the fender will slide out. Good luck.

Re: Noise from oil pan?

Take a rubber mallet and hit a few things to see if you can make anything go into resonance. Those splash pans can make a lot of noise. Good luck.

Re: Question About Inconsistent Horn Performance

Try this. Back off on the adjustment screw and hold the horn button down for about 20 seconds. Let that motor run. It’s a motor, it wants to run. While in use, it only runs for a second at a time....

Re: Connecting Rod (Insert) Question for rebuild
