Re: Preheating of the engine

I had a 55 VW and sawed of most of the shift lever. Winter came and I had to leave the bug in low if I expected to go anywhere the next Wisconsin morning

Re: 1934 mechanical brakes 'vs' model A' style

My first car was a '39 standard 2door that had cable brakes. Since that time I have spoken to several Early Ford V8 owners that had owned '39s with the same set ups.

Re: Engine failure - high speed running

All my A engines are set up to have the pipe going into the crankcase. Henry thought it was a good idea.

Re: 16 in wheel - tube needed?

I run tubeless but use a layer of silicone seal on the valley of the rim where the spokes are welded. I also run some emery cloth over the lip of the rim where the tire meets it to smooth any bumps.
