Re: How difficult would it be to convert this water heater from 12V to 6V?

I suspect the only thing/s electric in that heater are the fans. There appear to be two of them so pull it apart and connect them in series.

Re: Dirty Carburetors

Try doing that again and open the GAV. I suspect it will get up and go.

Re: Replacing Rear Drum Seal

I do that on just about every rear end I have done. (usually 2-3 mm is enough)

Re: Dirty Carburetors

I am of the opinion that a lot of our carburettor issues these days can be traced back to the differences in fuel. Petrol (or gas as you guys call it) is a mixture of several hydrocarbons. There is a...

Re: Gas Tank Sealer

I have 4 Model As and every one of them has had the tank sealed. I drive several thousand miles a year and have never had an issue with it. I did have trouble once with a tank I hadn't yet gotten...

Re: Intro & Adjustable Lifters Question

FYI, If your crankshaft journals are 0.040" under size, that is the limit. It you need to rebuild it again, you'll need another less worn or new crankshaft.
Oh, and welcome to the forum.

Re: Aristocrat accessory dash

I asked around our club about those dash panels and as I expected, NOBODY has seen one. Maybe they weren't sold here.

Re: 7 Tooth steering box tip .

John, I fully understand how the RHD parts supply is intermittent, if you can get them at all. I use eccentric bushes as a matter of course to get the best possible fit. The last set of 7 tooth gears...

Re: J.R. Bullock Did Another Fine Job

I just received a reply from Mr Bullock. It's a no go - he doesn't work on B carbs.

Re: J.R. Bullock Did Another Fine Job

The B motors Ford used in 1932-4? used a bigger carburettor than the A. There were two versions of it. The early one is commonly referred to as a B1, the later one as a B2.
Reminds me of Bananas in...

Re: 7 Tooth steering box tip .

Makes sense to me!
BTW, I use eccentric bushes for the sector shaft to get zero play when I assemble a 7 tooth steering box. I think a similar result could be achieved if the bushes could be moved...

Re: front plate dumb question

In this jurisdiction, we are exempt from running a front plate on these cars but if we had to, I think I'd just zip tie it to the front bumper or at the most, make a mount for that location. I don't...

I have a B1 carburettor that needs attention. Does he do those? If so, contact details?

Re: Benefits of a thermostat?

That's what the extra holes do. They allow water from the engine to circulate past the T'stat so it gets warm water quickly. I have 3 x 1/8" holes in mine and have run that way for years. If there...

Re: Water pump questions

The original style water pump is a poor design, IMO. To say they last for years only says to me that the car is hardly used. The stainless steel shafts we have to use these days are soft. The packing...
