Re: Longest trip you took in a Model A

Two years ago we took a trip to the west coast. By the time we arrived home it was a 8700 mile trip. Tightened a screw on the door handle and changed the oil that was it. Very fun time.

Re: #1 cylinder has 36psi compression

I fixed a model a engine with 10 psi in one cylinder and 0 in another. Still ran but no power! He had just gone one a one hundred tour with it. It was the valves.

Re: How many miles between oil changes?

I do run a filter on my engine and change the oil and filter at 3000 miles. I have 60000 miles on this engine. 15-40 Mobil oil. I am not saying this is correct, it's just what I do.

Re: head info...

I used Barrs stop leak with water glass in it. Has sealed a leak in the intake manifold of a 4.6 liter ford for 5 years now. Just added it to the antifreeze and that's it. JB

Re: Rhams-horn, 6 volt

Gold digger, hook up to 6v and see how it sounds. 12 v will only make it louder and possibly only for a short time!

Re: Wolf Whistle again

If you see a 75 year old chick with a walker, just pull off the road open the hood and operate the whistle with your hand. She isn't going anywhere too fast.

Re: Original distributor

Try checking continuity with the condenser grounding screw off the back of the condenser. I had the same problem and it turned out to be a bad new condenser.

Re: No One Makes Seat Covers so I'll Make My Own!

We made our seat covers and use them on trips. We attach them just as Tom said and they work great. They save the wool under it and it's a lot cooler. JB
