Re: Parts that don't fit

It is a two-part urethane from McMaster-Carr. They have all types though. Mix it and then we put it into an old pressure cooker that we rigged an A/C vacuum pump to de-gas the liquid under vacuum...

Re: Parts that don't fit

Well maybe so, ...and that is good news about Drake's bumpers. Several years ago I started casting our own because of the dimensions were incorrect.

Re: Does Anyone Restore Boyce Motometers ?

Jim, exactly what are you needing? Are you wanting the plating re-done, -or has the mercury separated in the vial? If it is the first one, Craig Riker is the man.

If it is the second one,...

Re: Bolt and nut orientation

Henk, I am confused. Are you speaking about A-56607/8 Panel (quarter) Assy - outside lower and the A-56605/6 Panel (quarter) Assy - upper RH/LH on a 55A? If so, I'm pretty sure it used an...

Re: Highest Reliable Compression Ratio

Hi Ed. In the typical Model-A, a high compression head really does not make you go any faster by itself, -it helps you maintain your speed when additional power is needed. Where it helps you go...

Re: Max Speed of a Model A in Stock Form

It honestly should not have made any difference. Timing, -whether set manually or set automatically accomplishes the exact same thing. In other words, if the automatic advance sets the total...

Re: Parts that don't fit

Wayne, the issue is no one commercially manufactures the correct ones. The last I knew, Bob Drake was making these for E-V8s and the Model-A vendors sell them to provide someone the ability to...

Re: Max Speed of a Model A in Stock Form

I'll give my opinion of why. Others opinions may vary. ;)

For me, having enough clamping force of the brake shoes to the drums to completely stop all 4 wheels where they can no longer spin...

Re: Highest Reliable Compression Ratio

Yes, ...before Tod, Larry Brumfield offered the Super Brumfield which was 7:1. I have two of them, and can send you photos of you like.

Re: Max Speed of a Model A in Stock Form

I guess I am not following your logic on this. I don't drive my modern cars at 65 mph speeds in neighborhoods where kids are on bikes, -or animals in the road. I drive 60 mph when I have the proper...

Re: Bolt and nut orientation

Not even close. :D Generally if you look close enough at the earliest print of an item or EIs, it will give direction on how the Engineers wanted it done. Ironically, it often is not on the...

Re: Highest Reliable Compression Ratio

What about those of us who are running 8:1 compression? :eek: Don't we get to comment?? :D


When we stop to analyze why there would be a failure, lets begin by determining what would not cause...

Re: Parts list for rebuilding headlights

Colin, you make no mention of glass lens, the cork seal, the lens retainer clips nor the rim retainer. Are those OK on yours??

Re: Parts list for rebuilding headlights

I think you are probably thinking of Don Hesse that sold restored lights on eBay under the name Cobalta. Most of what he was doing is restoring stainless lamps though. Finding head lamp cases in...

Re: Rear Main Cap needed

If you want to come up one day, we'll see if we can pour and machine one that will be close. We will need the crankshaft to know the thrust measurement. Having the block to know where the forward...

Re: Zenith Troubles

If you replaced the Shut-off valve and immediate continued to see leakage, then I would expect that your tank cap is not venting properly and is causing excessive pressure in the tank to minimally...

Re: Flywheel Housing Check

Re: Flywheel Housing Check

So how do you keep the crankshaft forward when the engine is sitting in the car slanted rearward. Unless the engine is pointing nose downward, you will never get an accurate reading from my...

Re: Flywheel Housing Check

You are correct Mark. Using shims is a bandaid at best. Ford only used two shims on the flywheel which were the same thickness as a compressed flywheel housing gasket.

Look under the shut-off lever on top and you will see a hex headed packing nut. Slightly loosen the packing nut to relieve some tension. The valve stem is actually tapered, and someone has likely...
