Re: %$#& autolite 1100 carb

I changed to a manual choke when I used this carb on another make of car. The carb has worked well for me. Is your problem on the initial setting cold? Or not opening fully when hot?

Re: Andalusite Blue

MAACO can do very nice work if you are willing to do a lot of the prep work, or pay them to do it. I had a small side business working up cars for a good paint job and had Maaco, and other, "quick"...

Re: Manifold Bolts

Brent is right, but I think I would have freed up the nut after the stud was out and then had more ability in the future to remove the nut should the stud ever get locked in the block.

Re: model A

You should use related headers on your posts, you are being too general. Thanks.

Re: model A

Remember that the cap doesn't take much load so it really only needs to be snug and won't come loose if there is a good cotter pin used. sometimes you can swap different nuts and find ones that fit...

Re: Split window regulator shaft

Does the split in your shaft use a thin wedge to keep the handles on? maybe like an anchor bolt or hammer head.

Re: Reasons to get a Model T

A comfortable driving speed is 20-40 MPH on the road. The real challenge is keeping a safe stopping distance always.

Re: Reasons to get a Model T
