Re: Rear Spring Removal

The centre bolt is probably broken off. Use the spreader first.

Re: Flywheel housing mounting

It sounds like you forgot about the 2 bolts at the top of the flywheel housing.

Re: Terry Chapman Model A engine rebuilder.

I've seen that, the oil migrates out of the lubriplate and leaves the clay behind.

FWIW, I have a glass jar of lubriplate that's been sitting on the shelf for over 40 years, the oil is at the top...

Re: oil lube circuit

There is also an "oil return" tube that returns excess oil from the rear of the valve chamber to the lower front of the block, where the oil flows into the dipper tray.

Also note that the engine...

If you're running any electronics and 6 volt system it would be a good idea to avoid 12 volts for boosting unless the starter is isolated.

Re: Jumping a 6 volt battery

FWIW, 1-3/8" is the proper size for a Model A, but I've heard that some "crank nuts" are 1-5/16" and the one on my A is 1-1/4".
Not all Model As are created equal.
