Re: Adjustable Tappets

Once you get in there and start adjusting, you will quickly get a feel for not only the direction to adjust, but just how much (or how very little) you need to adjust to get the desired lash.

Re: Title goes with Frame or Engine?

My opinion - the title-able vehicle was parted out. The vehicle is just parts now and the vehicle no longer exists. I think you have to draw the line somewhere.

Re: speed error

In that case, other things affecting the indicated speed are:

Tire and wheel size

Choking would not be good to stop the engine. If you're going to choke, then why not when starting?

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

I could never get a consistent reading with the curtain rod. I went and got a real measuring stick and now I do get consistency. So my take on the curtain rod is that it is probably close, but not...

Re: thoughts of(for) Medford, OR

There was a town of 300-400 up here in Washington that was something like 90% wiped out. Heavy losses in CA, OR and WA. Like last year wasn't enough!

Re: Tudor front seat questions

I think the bar was early 28's. Check the RG&JS to be sure. I don't think the pivots changed at least through 29 and maybe even 30/31. However the inside of the seat rear hinge that the back...

Re: Garage lights

I have about 12 4' LED fixtures, a mixture of Harbor Freight and Home Depot house brands. They REALLY light up the garage and I can really see what I am doing. Really a blessing. Now, when I go to...

Re: Clutch Adjustment/Transmission Oil

Also make sure that there is nothing in the way of full pedal travel when pushing in on the clutch pedal. It doesn't take much of an obstruction to keep the pedal from fully releasing the clutch.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

I have a question about the oil return. Is it intentional that the oil return hole is so small?

Re: 12 volt?

I once considered a change to 12 volts, but decided not to. I have been a Model A owner for three+ years now. I have not been inconvenienced in any way by 6volt versus not having 12. No issues...

Re: A-v8

A 32 doesn't look that much different than a Model A. Why not get a 32 V8 and not have to jump through all the mod hoops?

Re: Horn problems

You will probably need to put a horn relay in series with it, and try to figure a way to mount the relay out of sight. The on-off for the Model A horn comes through ground rather than the hot side. ...

Re: Fuel Adjustment

Maybe lift the hood and separate the GAV shaft from the needle shaft and look and see? You're going to have to take a look to actually know.
