Re: Battery charger

I have used a Harbor Freight 6/12, charger/maintainer for years with good results. It cost $24 on sale.
It reads the current voltage and shows when it is charging, like a thermometer going up.

Re: Spark control lever detents worn

I remember a post from the 80's where the owner soldered a BB to the bottom of the control lever...said it worked great, including the "click".

Re: Plates Model A Club

pretty cool...thanks for posting.
Judging from the style and the patina, I would guess they are a 1950's item.

Re: transport

you might give FASTENAL a call. I have used them a bunch of times with good results and they are reasonable.

Re: Model a steering

I agree....Les Andrews red book, available from any Model A parts vendor or either of the national clubs.
Clear diagrams walk you right through the procedure.

Re: Where to find Ethanol free gasoline in your area

In Wake Forest area of NC you can pump ethanol free gas at Fraziers Store, intersection of 96 and 98 just out of Youngsville.
The pump is on the side of the store, not out on the main island.

Re: "Doodlebug"

first thing I would suggest is to replace the radiator hoses, drop the pan and clean the sludge out, flush the gas tank, and get the fuel line figured out.

Re: Best 6V battery

Re: Zenith carb

I have done several shut off valves with the Brattton kits and they worked fine.
I used fine valve lapping compound to smooth and polish the innerds before adding the kit parts.

Re: Fix or Replace

The wiring is 90 years old...it ain't going to get better.
I would replace with fresh wiring and be happy knowing my Model A isn't going to catch fire.
