Re: B-W woes

I had similar problems with the chain coupler in my Borg Warner. My problem was that the connecting link in the chain had failed. I did some reading online about how to measure drive chains, measured...

Re: Carbs...Tillitson vs Zenith vs Marvel???

Not sure why nobody will just answer your question...anyway, the Zenith was the original equipment carb for the A. Both Tillotson and Marvel (sometimes known as Allstate) were aftermarket replacement...

Re: Alternator Always Charging

Thanks all. I should mention that it's a 10 year old alternator and an original ammeter that's been in the car for 50 years (since my dad and grandpa first restored the car). I really doubt that the...

Re: Alternator Always Charging

Thanks. I already checked the voltage at running RPM and it all seems fine. If there was a draw on the battery, it wouldn't start after weeks sitting, but it does.

Re: Alternator Always Charging

I've heard about bad repops being unreliable. However, I think this is an original that's been on there since 1971 when my dad and grandpa restored the car. No problems with the gauge in those years....

Re: Alternator Always Charging

I'll check the grounds.. The battery seems fine, though. The car can sit for weeks and start right up.

Re: Boat Anchor

I've been told that I can be an..."agressive" Model A driver, so take that for what it is. Lol. I learned that these cars are tough and can handle a little aggressive driving. It's a Model A, they're...

Alternator Always Charging

Hi all. Drove my coupe accross town the other day, probably 50-60 miles total. Even after driving for a while at speed, the ammeter sat at a consistent 9-10 amps charge. It jumped up to 15- 20 amps...

Re: 28/29 - 30/31 crankshaft difference??

The engine in my coupe is an A block that was modified to accept a B crank, so it has been done.

Re: Max Speed of a Model A with 26% OD and HC Head

I saw 70mph in my 29 fordor once and it was a little scary. I have an inserted engine with oversize intake valves, B cam, 5.9:1 Brumfield head, dual B carbs, and a Borg Warner overdrive. 55-60 on the...

Re: Borg Warner Coupler

Re: Borg Warner Coupler

Thank you! It may be a bit before I can tear into it. I'll let you know if I need one. If it happens to be the chain that is bad, any ideas on where I can obtain a replacement chain?

Re: Borg Warner Coupler

Thank you. I should have been more specific. I am hearing a noise as if something is intermittently touching metal (torque tube?) and assumed that it had something to do with the OD coupling. Seeing...

Thanks Updraught. That's the same one, but the ID plate is in better shape. Here's a couple pics of mine. It looks like it's in decent enough shape to run, but the cap has a crack in it...

Re: need a little help

Hi there,

Model A's didn't originally have an oil filter. There are aftermarket kits available to add one, but many people don't bother.

If the motometer is in working order, you should be able...

Re: Clutch issues...

Yeah, I went down to Bert's yesterday and picked up a pressure plate, disc and throw out bearing for under $200, so it might not be worth it to have the old parts fixed. I'll probably keep them as...

Sorry, should've just posted the pictures in this thread.

The center hub of the clutch disc came apart and the pressure plate fingers were contacting the disc
