Re: Distribution block for 6 volt

Brattons sells the A panel. Attaches to the inside firewall. Hard to work on up there but can't be seen.

Re: how many tie rod turns equates to 1/16 inch toe in change ?

Hi Brent,
I thought I remembered something about measuring at a point on the rim 6" from the ground, then rotating the tire until that spot was 6" from the ground behind the axle.
Maybe I'm just...

Re: how many tie rod turns equates to 1/16 inch toe in change ?

The 1/16th is not measured at the very front to very rear. Only about 4".
How far is the tie rod behind the axle?

Re: Comparison Cost of Driving Our A's

I have mine registered as a standard car, so $60 for two years and insurance $343.
Don't remember the agreed value, think $20,000.
$35 for inspection per year plus minimum excise tax of $5.

Why would you want a hotter spark inside the distributor?

Re: Pitman Arm Question

Shorter pitman arm means larger turning radius. That is the only down side I ever heard.

Re: What is driving an A on snow/ice like? Can you add studs to A tyres?

A lady here still uses studs on her car.
We used them into the 70's, just had to have them off by spring inspection.

Re: Hood Latch Bumper Replacements

I used pop rivets, but the head was to small. Maybe add a washer.

Re: Devastating Blow

Why is the A always assumed to be in the right?
Maybe he pulled out in front of the BMW!

Re: Manifold/Muffler Joint

I don't know what is in there. It was put on sometime ago by my father. I just noticed it was loose.
I'll try to take it apart.

Manifold/Muffler Joint

Should the connection be solid or have some movement?
Mine moves about a half inch at the bottom and I have tightened the bolts all I can.

Re: Steering turn from center

I think his steering wheel only turns 2 1/4 turns lock to lock.
Right turn radius must be huge.
