Re: Car Will Not Start--No Apparent Spark

It sounds to me like you are way overthinking the problem. I don’t know about volts here or volts there. This is a simple car, and I’m just a shade tree mechanic. But I have played with and worked on...

Re: Front Fenders Hit the Shocks?

I put Stipes on my coupe. They made a huge difference in the ride!

It takes serious anchoring of old shocks on something solidly attached to the floor and/or a wall, then being able to adequately...

Re: Hard turning with new pistons

I have to agree. That was clearly the problem with my engine.

Re: Hard turning with new pistons

I had a similar problem with an engine rebuild four years ago. Car would overheat and lock up when stopped, until it cooled down. Tried different rings. Checked ring clearances. Reassembled. Still...

Re: Model A parts Suppliers.

Thanks John. As Mark noted, we’ve had some serious smoke here; stuck inside now for ten days. A little clearing today. That is, enough so that I could take the garbage out and not feel like it was...

Re: model a shocks

Just buy four and put them front and back. Don’t worry about a $1200 investment in a $12,000 (or more) car.

Re: Starter Bendix bolt broken

I carry a spare bolt and lock washer in my cars. I’ve been stuck a couple times as a result of failures on these parts. I’ve never tried to remove the broken parts. Almost 60 years and over 50,000...

Re: Model A parts Suppliers.

One of the reasons I like Bratton’s is they are willing to make a value judgment in their catalog on what they sell. I also trust Snyder’s, though I find their catalog hard to navigate. But mostly I...

Re: Engine Splash Pans

I put ‘em on because they belong there, and I like my cars as close to complete and original as safely possible. But I admit they are a pain to remove and install when necessary, like dropping the...

Re: Model A insurance coverage

Hagerty specifically disallows insect damage. I don’t know about rodents.

Re: Model "A" Ford Clubs

Dbaldwi3 It used to be you only needed six people to form a MAFCA chapter. It may be the same. You could look into it if you have a group.

Re: Model "A" Ford Clubs

I have been a member of MAFCA and the Beaver Chapter since 1961, except for 1977-78 (personal upheaval). But this year is my last for both. Why? Because after 59 yrs in the hobby, I have experienced...

Re: Install of 1929 Sport Coupe Belt Rail molding

I used brass screws on the inner rail on mine to avoid future rust. This makes any later removal or adjustments easier (but I hope I will never have to remove it!)As for installing the outer trim, I...

Re: Install of 1929 Sport Coupe Belt Rail molding

Be very careful with the outer piece. They are fragile, dent easily, and nearly impossible to find a replacement if it gets damaged. You are fortunate to have an original. I looked for two years...
