Re: Victoria with moveable stick shift

Yes. Put the shifter in 3rd gear, pull up with a decent effort and rotate it up against the gas tank, near the choke rod.

This can be done sitting in the garage, or going down the road.

Re: Scam alert

It's free to sign up, and google/gmail is a popular platform. Plus lots of browser extensions and other programable elements that make it easy to manage on the users end.

Re: Vintage Precision Hub Puller

Those things are too ugly for my tastes. You can buy reproduction outlet necks with a threads for a temp sender cast right into them. They look correct and function perfectly.

Re: Original Radiator Question

It's not an original, you can tell by the tank stamping. I believe the judging standards show the different styles of radiators throughout 28-31.

Re: What length serpentine belt?

Search “clings model a”, and it comes out on top! Clings system is way too generic for the results you seek. No agitation here! Just offering help.

Re: ‘35 gas pedal rod?

Model A’s send a leather type of material for this. You can find them in the A parts catalogs. I can’t imagine 35’s were much different.

Re: Anyone run a Lion Head

They could be ordered with different compression ratios, that maybe what happened in the example you test drove/rode.

If it were me, I'd go with a reproduction iron Winfield head that Tod in Ohio...

Re: SNYDER’S 5.5 head vs 6.1

5.5 vs 6.0:1 is low, timing isn't an issue at this low of a compression if it's properly timed. If it were a single cylinder flathead, you'd have no problem pull starting it without a compression...

Re: 34 Phaeton Top Irons

Thanks for fixing the link.

I’ve used this for 15 years, in the garage and on the side of the road. It’s worked perfectly every time. With these type of pullers, it’s the impact of the hammer...
