Re: 3rd engine failure...getting frustrated

I feel your pain. Don't give up. As you said the first two motors were unknowns so with them anything can happen at any time as you knew nothing about their history. Hopefully you can resolve your...

Re: Can somebody shed some light as to what these people are thinking?

I would say they are having a ball! I love seeing them all bouncing around for traction.

Re: Fuel pump installation suggestions

I run a fuel pump with 1-2 lb pressure. I have a 15 amp fuse, and pump comes on with my ignition switch. You are correct as long as your float is not sticking there is no reason to be shutting the...

Re: Engine diagnosis?

First off don't start messing with anything you haven't changed. Like the timing. I would start with making sure fuel is getting to the cylinders. Start with easiest first. Is their sufficient fuel...

Re: Are there PDF books by Les Andrews

And a trip down memory lane as you find previous smudges on certain pages. My manuals get so bad, it borderlines on ridiculous.

Re: Brake Light Switch Backwards

I cannot think of a scenario where it isn't the switch itself though I am not an electrical expert. Can you test e switch for resistance- zero when pedal is engaged, infinite when not depressed.

Electric speedometer

Is anyone using an electric speedometer that requires a speed sensor as opposed to GPS for calibrating? If so how did you go about this? Looking at an Autometer product.
Thanks

Re: Identify this alternator

Thanks for confirming what it is, and thanks for letting me know that the one wire is not stock from GM. Both will be good to know should this one fail.
Thanks,

Re: differential oil

While on this subject, what weight oil do you all use in your rear end. I will be flushing and refilling mine this winter.

Re: Confused

Definitely sounds like you are starving for fuel. Float valve not opening? Vent in gas cap. When you say it fires right back up does it still run the same length of time? I cannot imagine anything...

Re: Having Fun With it?

Enjoy the challenges of rebuilding your Model A. Sometimes I wonder why we enjoy the headaches we create for ourselves trying to solve problems and make things work or fit.
