Re: Does Gauge of Ground Wire Matter

any welding supply can make up whatever guage cable with whatever end fittings you require.
I believe that most NAPA stores can make cables also.

Re: Battery charger

I have used a Harbor Freight 6/12, charger/maintainer for years with good results. It cost $24 on sale.
It reads the current voltage and shows when it is charging, like a thermometer going up.

Re: Plates Model A Club

pretty cool...thanks for posting.
Judging from the style and the patina, I would guess they are a 1950's item.

Re: Model a steering

I agree....Les Andrews red book, available from any Model A parts vendor or either of the national clubs.

Re: Where to find Ethanol free gasoline in your area

In Wake Forest area of NC you can pump ethanol free gas at Fraziers Store, intersection of 96 and 98 just out of Youngsville.
The pump is on the side of the store, not out on the main island.

Re: "Doodlebug"

first thing I would suggest is to replace the radiator hoses, drop the pan and clean the sludge out, flush the gas tank, and get the fuel line figured out.
