Re: Heater

You can use a 6V to 12V inverter and jump up the power to it. They have them from Brattons or google either a 6 V motor or the aforementioned inverter.

Re: Front Fenders Hit the Shocks?

^^^^^I am going to say that they have been rebuilt and assembled wrong. In other words the fill hole should have been indexed 180 Degrees from where it is. Were they ever hooked up and have you ever...

Re: Centering 1930 Model A Deluxe Coupe on towing trailer

DO NOT try this with an S 10 or similar vehicle as they are too light. F 150 or even F 250 type truck to pull a trailer with a car loaded on it.

Re: Trailer hitch

When the Model A was produced there were very few paved roads in the U.S. Roads and bridges were not even dreamt of to carry the 80,000 Lb. loads permitted on today's roads. Even though they are...

Re: Tough Old Ford

^^^^ Agreed, very possible an El Dorado so not a 1956 photo. Impressive towing that with an A coupe though no matter what the year.

Re: 93 octane fuel

That is what the slow burn of higher octane does is slow down the ignition rate to burn slower. Exactly, a waste in any flathead unless running extreme compression or forced induction. Even then it...

Re: 93 octane fuel

Higher octane fuel burns slower than a lower octane number. Higher compression ratios require a slower burn rate than lower compression ratios. Did the engine "chug" before you tried the 93 Octane...

Re: Model A Taxi

That is what I noticed was the door being a full door like a regular four door front as it is smaller than the front one on the Henney. Is the ad an actual picture or an artists rendering? Hard to...

Re: Model A Taxi

Why did an independant maker, Henney, produce what Ford was already producing? Was Henney subbing out work such as Murray and Briggs did on the four doors?

Re: Do YOU single-clutch ?

Just use the clutch to start and come to a stop. Comes from years driving tractor trailers, especially in towns with stop lights.

Re: 1951 Ford Split Rims
