Re: Trailering tips for protection

I don't think it's a precise science but they worked very well today.
Model A on a U-Haul trailer over 500 miles and there was no noticeable "extra" pressure required for braking. Works like a charm...

Re: Trailering tips for protection

Thank you Guys.
Number 9 covered all the glass and that's what i'm going to do.
Also engine to the front with proper tongue weight and the u-Haul trailer has serge brakes.
It will be an adventure!

Re: Engine Oil Analysis

The only analysis I've done is looking in the bottom on the drain pan to find pieces of timing gear.

Re: Rear End Pressure

Duke 36 and Davew, thanks for the pix of the vents.
They make sense as I really think the extra pressure on the seals can be eliminated.

Re: Rear End Pressure

Bill,
This is the first time I've heard that the later axle housings have vents.
Where are the vents located and what do they look like. A nipple and a hose or what ??
Thanks for your help.

Re: Rear End Pressure

I like the idea of drilling one of the upper banjo bolts and attaching a tube to it. Wouldn't like to drill a housing but I can always replace a bolt.
Thank you gents.

Water output casting sealing gasket or no gasket?

Good morning Gents,
While torqueing down a new head gasket the water output gasket squished out from under the flange. I'm worried the ears of the flange might break off.

Re: brake linings

Thank you gents for the info and advice.
Car is on stands under axles and I will find out what linings are on the back. Looks like the best choice is soft molded linings.
Thanks again,

Re: Carb expert needed

If your carb doesn't have the replaceable brass seat, how can you know the condition of the cast iron seat?
Is there a tool that can re-surface that seat?
I'd sure like to know.
Thanks,
