Re: Longest trip you took in a Model A

Two years ago we took a trip to the west coast. By the time we arrived home it was a 8700 mile trip. Tightened a screw on the door handle and changed the oil that was it. Very fun time.

I fixed a model a engine with 10 psi in one cylinder and 0 in another. Still ran but no power! He had just gone one a one hundred tour with it. It was the valves.

Re: How many miles between oil changes?

I do run a filter on my engine and change the oil and filter at 3000 miles. I have 60000 miles on this engine. 15-40 Mobil oil. I am not saying this is correct, it's just what I do.

Re: Rhams-horn, 6 volt

Gold digger, hook up to 6v and see how it sounds. 12 v will only make it louder and possibly only for a short time!

Re: Wolf Whistle again

If you see a 75 year old chick with a walker, just pull off the road open the hood and operate the whistle with your hand. She isn't going anywhere too fast.

Re: Original distributor

Try checking continuity with the condenser grounding screw off the back of the condenser. I had the same problem and it turned out to be a bad new condenser.
