Re: Snow bird conversion at Iola WI car show

I looked at your pictures, that is really neat! I gotta say, those snow pictures look awfully nice compared to the 90 and humid weather we're having now :)

Re: Newbie E-brake question

I have the exact same problem - I can click mine all the way but the car still rolls. I'm hoping someone can explain how to fix or how to adjust!

Re: Front spring replacement advice - updated

Yes, they are gas charged since that is all I could find. I've heard that some people recommend non-gas charged, but I can't see that anyone makes or sells those anymore??

Re: Front spring replacement advice - updated

I thought I would follow up to let everyone know that I have the new spring in, new shackles and bushings, and new shocks on, and it rides MUCH better than before!! I will attach a few pictures. A...

Re: Front spring replacement advice

I'll see what the perches look like after I get things apart. If I have to replace the perches, this will be a lot bigger project than I bargained for!

Question Front spring replacement advice

My Model A is in great shape overall, but it rides very rough. By that I mean every bump in the road makes a bang sound and I can almost feel it in the steering wheel. Granted, this is my first...

Re: Radiator Replacement

I just replaced my old leaky radiator last weekend. I got a Berg's radiator based on a search of posts from this site which all seemed to have good things to say about Berg's. It fits perfect and...

Re: Quick question, winter ops

I start mine and let it run at a fast idle every couple weeks for 15 minutes or so and drive it up and down the driveway to get the brakes and gears moving a little. Is this necessary? No. Is it...

Re: 1931 Tudor. Carburetor adjusting rod not turning

The GAV on my '30 is really, really hard to turn. It is so tight that I swore it was fully closed all summer (while also trying to figure out why the car was running way too rich), but eventually I...

Re: How fast in 2nd gear?

Wow, I need to figure out what my rear gear ratio is. Were there different options for 1930?
My car revs so high it sounds like it's going to blow up if I go faster than 20-25 in second or 40-45...

Re: Back in an A (and the long story behind it)

Wow, that is nice too! I think it is amazing how there are Ford Barn members from all around the world. Do you see many Model A's in Bavaria, or is yours really unusual?

I love the color combo with the black wheels.

Re: About gas filler screens

Thanks much for the info. Mine would have been the tab kind. Apparently the repro's (Sndyers/ Mike's) don't have the tabs attached - so how would this be installed now if I were to buy one?
