Re: Removing fuse holder

Just FYI, I use a circuit breaker in my fuse holder. Resets itself when electrical problem is corrected.

The issue with the holder is that too long of a screw was provided with the holder. I...

Re: Time For Clutch Adjustment?

Are the teeth at the top of your steering column worn down?

Re: Rear Brakes

No reason at all. Some of the vendors sell a loaded rebuilt backing plate. Randy Gross just sent a friend 4 loaded backing plates with cast iron drums all ready to go.

Re: A few timing gear questions

The drawing in post #13 is the drawing you are referring to. I agree it is not the best but in no way it is one tooth off. It does show that the keyway should be to the left of the timing mark, not...

Re: Wrong Gear Oil?

Probably leaking from the reverse idler and cluster gear shafts. The vendors have a kit that stops that annoying leak....

Re: Pressurized Radiator

Interesting thread but I think you need to address the reason your Model A "belches water all over the place". It shouldn't be doing that and I doubt a pressurized radiator will cure your problem.

Re: Sedan window trim plates

Mr. Moose, Could you post a picture. Maybe that would help? I'm not exactly sure what you are referring to and perhaps others are not either.

Re: Voltage/Amperage question?

Jayvee, I think you had it right. You 'flashed' the alternator. When you REV the engine, you 'excite' the alternator. Two different things.

Re: Engine runs on

I have only seen that happen on "newer" cars and Hot Rods that have an indicator (idiot) light. Most of the time it is the fault of the way the car was wired, not the alternator. Still not fun, cure...

Re: Voltage/Amperage question?

I agree but as long as it is indicating + or - is good enough for me.

Re: Gas bowl Q

FWIW, The gasket is the same size as the one used for '28-29 gas and radiator caps.

Re: Voltage/Amperage question?

Please excuse my lack of enlightenment but what does "If FSB 11/29 has been applied" mean?

Re: A few timing gear questions

I think the keyway should be to the left (in your picture) of the cam gear mark.

Is that a timing mark on that tooth. I think you may be off.

Re: Vacuum Gauge (new)

I believe I suggested a possible reason in a previous post. Wouldn't be the first time a member quit because of it.

Re: Rear A steering stabilizer use.

I believe all of the vendors offer Panhard bars. I find that my Town Sedan is more stable in corners and when driving in a crosswind. Your mileage may vary....

Re: Torsion Rod ends / Drag Link Steering Arm end

Most of the vendors carry them. I'm not sure they where meant to be greaseless tho? I don't know for sure. I grease mine with no ill effects.
