Re: Steering Box 7 tooth vs 2 Tooth vs F100

I think one factor that needs to enter the conversation is the frequency, distance, and driving conditions under which you use your A. Personally, I try to keep my cars as close to stock as possible,...

Re: What are you working on?

Re: What are you working on?

Post Why do you own a Model A?

A man asked me this today when I took my Coupe to the grocery store, and it is not a common question, at least for me, when I’m out in my A.
It took a moment to form a coherent reason, but it...

Re: Clutch problem on 30 CCPU

Thanks Brent. I just ordered one on your recommend. But I chuckle to myself whenever I buy a repro part (or original, for than matter) and pay more than $10 for it, since I bought my entire,...

Re: help with Model A market values

Thanks. I’m 76 and it’s been many moons since I seriously considered restoring a car. I’d heard from friends prices had gone way up, but didn’t fully appreciate how much! That’s why I said "at least".

Re: help with Model A market values

Ron, if you have restored ‘34s you know what it takes to bring up an antique car. A Model A will be way less money than the buy in for an early V8, but the restoration costs will still be at least in...

Re: Light / Horn Switch

I think Bratton’s meant "taper", not "tapper", which could be misleading. Tapping and tapering are distinctly different operations. Also, was the poor fit solved with retoolong in 2018?

Stick a wire probe down into the box and see what it brings up.

Re: Engine stumbles on acceleration

I have high respect for Mr. Daut, but my experience re: pencil filters vs inline filters is just opposite of his. :) I ageee on the sediment bowl advice.

Re: Engine stumbles on acceleration

I agree with JacksonIII. FIlters are unnecessary unless you’ve got rust dust in your gas tank, and that is best resolved with a pencil filter at the shutoff. Otherwise your sediment bowl should be...

Do a search here for new fenders. You will find many tales of risk and reward.

Re: Mysterious Model A

This makes sense. The note on his window was pretty hostile. Basically, "This is my car. Leave me alone, you fkng jerks!”
So I will.
Part of the mystery.
