Re: Make and year

In the sales photos posted by mercman from oz, photos show steel wire wheels and the other wood spoke wheels. Anyone know about the difference?

Re: Running a Model A Zenith carburetor on a Model B intake manifold

Can't answer your question. Work was done in my company's machine by the shop supervisor, a car guy.

Re: Running a Model A Zenith carburetor on a Model B intake manifold

If you look closely at the end plate brush holders, you will see 2 are insulated and 2 are not. Line up the notch in the end plate with the notch in the starer housing and you will see where each...

Re: Heater motor wires

Re: For you electrical gurus in the audience...

Hi Marshall, Crankster (post #12) has it right on mica. His comment on paint as an insulator is also important.
Replace the bushing in the Bendix end plate.
Good luck you can do it!!

Re: Floor Mat

I have found it easier to apply the e-brake, this moves the e-brake handle closer to the gear shift.

Re: Tillotson carb question

I've also had good luck with Tillys. Ran them on both my A's for over 15 years, great carb.
For the last 3 years I have run a Marvel on our touring car, its better with the Marvel.

Re: Generator wiring
