Re: Horn problems

And a few drops of a light weight oil on the felts and bushings, might be another good use for MMO !

Re: grey smoke out of exhaust - hill/slope

What would a cloud of brown smoke be? Not in an A but a ford t-bird mid 60's. I was told it hasn't run so good in awhile, oh yes some tire smoke also, my guess a rust clogged exhaust, teenager's!!!

Re: Fan Blade orientation

Re: Generator not charging - maybe ?

Two wires coming out of generator I think is later not an A generator ? The wire going to the cut out mounting screw, I would remove and clean and reinstall ! Hopefully it's a bad ground.

Re: I know ... oil again ...

The oil pipe in the rear main bearing maybe missing, plugged, too short. That pipe returns oil into the oil in your engine oil pan. Also I keep the oil level above the add line to no more than 1/2.
