Re: Rear axle shaft thread broken

REPLACE THE AXLE. The axle holds the wheel on the vehicle and if your fix fails the wheel will come off of the car.

Re: Photos will not load

Unfortunately the message doesn't relate to what is going on. I sure wish they would fix that. Your pictures are probably just too big. If you can't figure out how to reduce their size post what...

Re: 32 amp gauge

The '32 V8 used a resister and I assume the vehicle the 59a came out of did also. That tells me to use a resister. The Model B did not use a resister but that is a different electrical system. It...

Re: Engine question

My first choice, by a long way, would be a properly rebuilt Model A engine. Maybe with a little MILD speed equipment if you wanted a LITTLE more power.

My second choice would be a ’32-’34 4...

Re: Wanted 15" Wheels for Model A

If yours are not long enough you need to replace them. Be sure to get someone that has done it before and knows what they are doing.

Re: Tires for my 16" wheels

Be sure to check the date code on your tires. If they don't have one that doesn't mean they are ok but rather too old to have a code.

How about putting the odd one as spare with a tire cover? ...
