Re: Another Reason to Love the A

The '30 and '31 Tudors are one of the easier A's to get in and out of it seems.

I went to Put-In-Bay around 1970, didn't see any A's there then though. A lotta cars from the 1940's though.

Re: engine oil

Brent, sounds like "off the record" that using the Shell Rotella T synthetic is probably a good a choice as anything readily available from local stores now?

Re: What was the approximate viscosity of 600W?

600W goes in the differential too I believe?

Re: Tech help with model A cabin space.

The 1930-1931 Tudors have the most stock legroom for the driver I think?

And also have the option to move the seat fore-aft also if one wants using different brackets?

Re: F150 tranny with overdrive

So, if you have an A with a 4-speed T170 transmission that was installed some years before you bought the car, there is a tag on the trans that would tell which gear set, etc are expected to be in...

That's an interesting conversion for sure.....a Ford Pinto engine and a non synchro transmission sounds like.

Re: tell a Model A related story

Gnater.....it's good to see a post from Knoxville, TN. I used to ride to Young High School on Chapman Hwy in a '28 Tudor back in the early sixties, when that high school was still there.

I hope...
