Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

The first time I used AAA, I was only 1/2 mile from their garage. I walked in and asked for a flatbed. The man at the desk said "you let me determine what kind of truck you need." He asked me what...

Re: this is what I drug home yesterday- not Ford

Nice car, but don't sell the A's. What are you going to drive while the Buick is sitting in the barn waiting for parts. I don't think Snyder's or Bratton's will carry parts for it.

Re: Extended Warranty

Can you imagine having a job where everyone hangs up on you? I couldn't take that much rejection.

Re: Extended Warranty

Last time I played their game the caller called me names that made me blush. Some of his language I've never heard before.

Re: 6 volt group 1 battery

Rural King is the place to go. When I go in they usually ask me what kind of tractor I have.

Re: Hot water heater will not fit

Bryan,
Have you contacted Snyder's? Those people live and breathe Model A's and T's. Every time I've had a question I've called and have been put in touch with Don or Tom and they have the answer...

Re: Selling model a

I agree with Chris W. on this post. I'm retired with almost 40 years in banking and I've seen it all. If I'm honest and I'm entering into a transaction, by all means, check me out. There are soooo...

Re: st"A"rt in 46 seconds

Do you really need new leather gloves to drive your model A. I think my car would be offended.

Re: Warranty

One of the Car Shield type companies call all of the time wanting to cover my car with their insurance. Since my daily driver is a Ranger truck and the wife's car is a lease, the only "car" I own is...

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

I have a pertinent question. Model A's were pretty much the same for the four years they were built. Was Chevrolet the same or did they make yearly changes? Maybe this would account for some of the...

Re: First Time Tire Change

It's not a fun job but very rewarding when finished. I made some tools to pry with out of hardwood. Make sure you take off any rough edges. For lubricant I use Murphy's Oil Soap. Real slippery and...

Re: Firestone tires Too Big?

Yes, 31ASlant, the Firestones are larger. They'll fit fine and give you a good ride. I also have a rear mounted spare, but I heard that the folks who have sidemount spares have a little trouble...

Re: Carpet

My wife and I looked everywhere for carpet for our '30 town sedan. One day we were in our local Marc's store (kind of a grocery and misc. store in northern Ohio) and found just what we needed. Did...

Re: Leakless water pump ID.

There are two kinds of leakless water pumps. One requires grease in the rear bushing and the other one does not. I have the second type and it will not take any grease in either fitting, no way, no...

Re: 1930 Roadster on ebay. Thoughts please.

I agree with McMimmcs. That's a lot of money to pay for something you can't actually touch. Either take a vacation and go see it, or find a club member in the area to look it over for you. He may...

Are the two pieces hooked together, or are there two separate pieces of lawn art pictured there?

Re: Swirled Glass Shift Knobs

I had one but accidently dropped it on the garage floor. They're not very forgiving.

Re: Speedometer error

Mine is off about 5 mph at 30 miles per hour. I guess it could be fixed, but for the price of about $100 I'll just keep the difference in mind.

Re: Timing and hand throttle levers

A few years ago I helped a friend restore a '30 coupe. It went smoothly and it was a good experience until we installed the levers in the steering column.

Re: Stainless Steel Model A

A couple stainless steel Fords were in the Crawford Auto Museum in Cleveland years ago. I haven't been to the museum for several years to see if they're still there.

Re: New Manufactured Zenith Carburators

Re: No Spark--Follow Up

Ralph, How long did it take to make that "silk purse out of a sow's ear?" She's a beauty. Columbiana, huh? I guess you made a few trips just down the road to Snyder's.
