Re: Time lapse Model A engine build

The engine was too tight for the starter to turn over. There is another video about the assembly and he mentions it.

Re: Convert to 12 Volt ?

I like the 6V system. It's one of the many things that gives the model A it's "charm" IMO. I personally would not covert to 12V and if I bought one that was converted I don't think I would bother to...

Re: after-market hubcap difference Q

When I bought my '31 DD the hub caps were made from the bottom of soup cans so I guess there are currently 6 different ones available:p. Actually didn't look that bad.

Re: Those were the days....

The price in dollars is irrelevant. What matters is how many hours you had/have to work to buy it.

Re: Mystery missfire .

I started up a '74 ford 1 ton a month or so ago that had sit for several years. We drained the fuel tank and added fresh gas, primed the carb and started it up. It started (under protest) and would...

Re: Mystery missfire .

But did you have spark?. if the spark jumped from the lead and you have swapped the plugs around and the problem persists at #4 then the problem is not an ignition one. As you stated, #3 and #4 share...

Re: Begging to be a hot rod.

A 300 I6???, can't think of a worse choice. Too long, no power, hard on fuel and the "torque monster" thing is a myth.

Re: Hard turning with new pistons

Re: About oils

I run Rotella 15-40 in everything except the Solstice and Avalanche. Not because i think there is anything special about Rotella, they took most of the zinc out of diesel oils close to 10 years ago,...

Re: Wheel interchange

If you are THAT concerned about safety you should be putting the front fenders back on your car as it would be much safer should you get caught in a rain storm rather than removing them for "looks".

Re: PCV valve good idea?

I rebuilt my engine a month or so ago and was very disappointed with the oil leaks. However, perhaps 1200 miles later, the oil leaks have subsided to about half of what they were aft the rebuild. I...

Re: Mixing lifters

If you have a couple valves that require adjusting, just grind those valves to the proper clearance. If you go to the trouble of removing the can cam to change out those lifters, change them all. I...

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

Follow up to the "counter weight" thread.

I didn't want to hi-jack the thread on counter weights so started this one to ask my questions. If counter weights are so much better, why didn't henry incorporate them in the original design. Also,...

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?
