Re: Hemmings MOdel A Calendar

I had recently received in the mail an order form for the 2022 Calendar, which I’ve purchased for many years. Then I noticed the Vintage Ford name, and said that’s it…..not interested any longer.

Re: Do you take your Model A to the local self serve car wash?

I hand wash, with minimal water and hand dry. I use microfiber cloths. I try to dust it carefully once a week, and use a detailer spray and buff out with cloth. A car wash would get lots of water...

On longer tours, my 1930 Town Sedan, with the 5.5 HC head and Mitchell OD, has gotten about 22 mpg, cruising at mostly 60 mph. But driving stop and go in town it drops to about 15 mpg.

Re: Woven vs molded brake linings

The rear brakes on the Model A do a large share of the braking…..I think most would agree you should do both while you are at it. Randy Gross here can help with that….he is our own expert brake...

Re: trouble starting

Not sure if it would make much difference, but I only pull the hand throttle down about 1/4….not half. I open the GAV about 1/2 turn, then hit the starter….I don’t pull the choke out until after...

Re: Tom Wesenberg

I just received my annual homeowners insurance renewal with AAA, and my premium was within a few dollars of last years…..they certainly did not raise it due to higher lumber or other costs.
