Re: Noisy Valves

As Patrick L says, I'd rather hear the valves than not and as WHN says, don't rush into takin things apart
I have changed valves, guides and camshaft etc while the engine is in the car but you have...

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...

Have you considered trying a dirty leg to catch the rusty crap?

Re: J.R. Bullock Did Another Fine Job

I hadn't seen it either. Thanks Mike. I have saved it for later reference.

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 don't know WHEN it was done but it's my guess it was done to stop scammers.

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...

Re: Scammers on here

0 posts is a give away. Once a "new member" tries a scam, he is reported and Ryan promptly deletes them from the forum. Did you report those 3?

Re: Scrap Drives May Have Trashed Cars, But Were the Drives Necessary?

IMO, people in those days knew that what had to be done had to be done. I think they would have worn them without question.

Re: "Diamond engine"

Sammy's Model A knowledge is legendary and he is not backwards in sharing it. I've known him for quite a while now and he has been helpful right through. Sam and Bonnie too.

Re: A working Sedan Delivery

I wouldn't like to be in that car if it hit something solid. Passengers would end up needing their own machining.

NICE! Wouldn't I like a set of radials for my car! I've heard different reports on how long they last. Do you get more miles out of them or is it just the better ride and handling.

Re: King pin replace

Reaming is fine, especially precision reaming but honing has limitations as I have described.
