Re: Oshkosh or Bust - Reverse Camera for Mullins Trailer Problem

Re: Ignition switch question

I have pretty much the same thing with one addition: my ignition switch also has a "start" position as well. My distribution block is mounted with Velcro.

Re: High Compression Head Review

When I bought my head, the only option was the stock 4.1 or the Snyder 5.5. Since I was replacing a Police Head (5.1?) I opted for the Snyder 5.5, which is still what I have, and am happy with it.

Re: two Model A questions

Randy Gross is the "go-to guy" when it comes to brakes. I have his brakes on my pickup and am very pleased with not only the quick service, but the price as well.

Re: LED Tail Lights - Adding Resistors

Dave, you didn't say if you were 6 or 12 volt. I am running 12 volts and found this flasher that works for me perfectly with a Signal Stat 900.

Re: F150 tranny with overdrive

Shortened drive shaft, torque tube, & radius rods all came in the kit. Open drive line was never a consideration.

Re: F150 tranny with overdrive

I bought the complete kit with all the machine work already done. All I had to do was just bolt it in.

Re: Another door handle question.

If your handle is a repop made by Vintique, it is not quite the same. Close, but no cigar!

Re: Anyone run a Lion Head

But if you are using a head with spark plugs in a different place, and want to use the stock style cap, what choice do you have?

Re: Anyone run a Lion Head

Rennr's Corner has a stock looking distributor cap that will accept "modern" style wire connectors rather than the brass strips.

Re: 6.1 Head / Carburetor Choice / 600 HP V8

My Dad, who was around when Model A's were plentiful and cheap, asked me when I got the pickup I now have: "what are you going to do to 'hop it up'?"
