Re: Feedback on modern tube shocks for Model A's

I have Snyder's tube shock kit on my Town Sedan. I like the Snyders kit because you don't drill the front axle and the shocks have eyes, not a straight shaft mount. The rear shocks are about right...

The best thing about Brockville bodies is that you can build a hot rod without destroying an original car.

Re: Foaming Coolant

I have seen foaming when using modern "long life" antifreeze. The antifreeze made for cars 1989 and older seems to work much better in Model A's. You can find it in most auto parts stores.

Re: Squealing engine

Had the same squeal with my engine. Spray the front crank seal with oil and squeal would go away, then return after a few hours running. Replaced with modern seal, no squeal and no leak.

Re: Head Gasket

The Best website says to use copper spray on their graphite head gaskets. I do and it works well.
