Re: Cylinder #4 Running Hot

You all do realize this post and this discussion originated last Spring. I'm petty sure much has already been sorted out since then.

Re: Diesel Conversion

Not to worry Mr. Brown, they are aftermarket fiberglass. ;) :D

Re: ARP head studs

So if you don't mind me asking, what are we gaining by using ARP studs on a Model-A engine?

I guess my view is with specifically made Model-A/B Grade 8 studs being under $40 (-which includes the...

Re: Fs ignitions

John, but what do you feel is the advantage on a typical Model-A/B touring engine? The coil 'soak time' after reaching 100% capacity does not allow the coil to produce a "more intense" spark, -or a...

Re: The Perrymobile!

It would be fun to replicate that.

Re: Fs ignitions

Can I ask the question 'why' you are looking at an electronic ignition kit? What is it you are trying to accomplish?? I am not saying you are wrong, ...just asking why.

Re: Piston and cylinder clearance / measurement???

How hot does it get down at the bottom of the cylinder? I have never known it to be any hotter there than what the crankcase area is. What am I missing, and what excessively heats up that area?

Re: How difficult would it be to convert this water heater from 12V to 6V?

Likely all that it will do by powering with 6 volts is it will cut the speed in half. Try it on the bench with 6v and see if the motor gets excessively warm while running.

Re: 1938 model A powered Sears tractor

Still looking forward one to add to my collection of ‘non-useful but cool stuff’. :D

Re: NOS paint thickness

John, I would need to look on the factory print for the specified M-Specs, but I would expect to see that it was originally dipped in the same Black bonderizer as what was specified for fender and...

Re: Insurance policy w/o liability?

Basically one writes the repair estimate. The Estimator submits it to the second company. Basically they split and each pays for half up to their exposure limits.

Re: Early '28 Model A - possible AR?

I can guarantee it is not an "AR" as Ford never designated one of his cars by that acronym. That is a Ford Parts List term only for parts.

Also realize that the left-handed brake lever was...

Re: Reamers

Possibly Bob, you need to find a machine shop with a cylindrical grinder. Most tool and die shops can do it.

Re: loose venturi

On the factory print, the major diameter of the Venturi was specified to be from 1.3732" - 1.3756", -and the minor diameter size was 1.2370" - 1.2430". It really should be a slip fit and not loose...

Re: Electric wipe motor

Something light enough to not require unnecessary motor torque while the gears are engaging, yet thick enough to cling to the gears to provide lubrication at all times. I have used Lubriplate on...

Re: Reamers

If I may make a recommendation, the ROI for you purchasing your own reamers will never be good for a hobbyist mechanic. If I were in your shoes, purchase extra bushings for whatever task you want...

Re: Reamers

Tim, adjustable reamers in my view are for emergency scenarios where a piece of machinery needs to be placed back in service immediately and the adjustable reamer allows for a bushing to be sized...

Re: Reamers

You are asking a very loaded question since the quality of finish is directly related to the type of reamer used, the quality of the reamer, and how the reamer will be rotated (power vs. hand). None...

Re: Station wagon wood

Guys, Post #9 that brought up this 5 year old posting is SPAM. This poster (Erik Martin) is not speaking of a Model-A Station Wagon.

Re: Insurance policy w/o liability?

John, I think that is a pretty accurate statement.
