Re: How Many Model A's Are There Now?

We have 65 members and over 100 cars. My guess is close to 125 cars is more accurate. But that's just club members. Lots who have cars are not in the club.

Re: Cleaning parts

I use diesel in a sealable tub and my wife's toothbrush while she's out shopping. I have to rinse it out really well before I put it back.

Re: New Manufactured Zenith Carburators

We have two from him and they have run very well. I have three cores in my shop, we're going to send them to him one at a time and have them redone. He does great work.

Re: My Distributor Cam Screw is Stuck

Re: pinpointing month date-of-assembly

Us '28 and '29 owners use the number stamped on the fuel tank. My brother has an October 28 pickup with an engine from the same month. My '29 Tudor has a June date on the tank and a June date on the...

Re: Preston “ALL VEHICLES” Antifreeze

Try a farm supply. Always have it for old farm equipment and they generally are fairly inexpensive for those thrifty farmers.

What I've been seeing is I get a rapid busy, which means the trunks are full to the area. Give it a couple of tries. Getting through to Steve at Bert's is worth the wait. Thanks for all the help...
