Re: Distributor not turning when cranking engine.

Do you have a crank? Turn the engine and see if the shaft in the block turns. If you don't have a crank, it's time to get one.

Re: Please help, any advice?

I think it's a fuel problem. Do I understand you have a filter in the fuel line seperate from the one in the carb and the one in the settling bowl? If you do, take it out. The A's gravity feed...

Re: try this again/ Volvo overdrive in a Model A

You probably need a new solenoid. They were designed for 12 volts, but a good one will work on 6V. Mine has been working fine for over ten years now. You might be able to find a used solenoid on...

Re: worth more in pieces

I bought an A-V8 coupe once that had a lot of nice parts, but as a whole it was a near disaster. I began dismanteling to fix things. When I got down to the bare frame I parted it out. Got my money...

Re: Cruising with medical issues

It may not make any difference, but I detect an error in people's thinking about Oxygen. It is not flamable, and will not explode. Combustion requires oxygen but it isn't the oxygen that burns. Stuff...

Re: Oil Pan Dropping Update

Re: "Repairs"??

I think it's partly a generational thing. Us old guys learned to work on cars that were simple. Youngsters grew up in an era where cars were like an appliance. Mostly they didn't break, and when they...
