Re: Paint v/s Japaning

In the Nov-Dec 2019 issue of The Restorer magazine there was a good article on how to make you own Japan Black Enamel and how to apply it to the carburetor.

Re: Bendix Drive Question??

Thanks for the report Stuart. I have put on over 120K mile on my model A and during that time I have had one spring break and one bolt fall out. I don't think that is all that bad for the miles...

Re: Restoration of Markings on a Fuel Gauge

There is a good article on restoring the Fuel Gauge in the 2013 May-June issue of The Restorer magazine. If you have copy of it handy check it out.

Re: rear wheel stud installation

My local auto machine shop has the tools in house to that work, maybe you could check around your area to find a shop that can do this job for you.

Re: Automatic in A

John LaVoy has started a series in his Model A Times magazine about installing an automatic tranny in a Model A. The Fall 2020 issue is the start of the information.

Re: Ford Model A engine noise

Sounds like a vacuum leak between the carb and manifold. If you have a Tillotson carb the flange can warp, you can use a flat file on the carb to smooth it out and a new gasket should help.

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

I have used them a few times and they have always been very careful with the Model A.

Re: Preston “ALL VEHICLES” Antifreeze

How about your local autoparts store, they should have some brand of GREEN ethylene glycol (which is an IAT opposed to OAT/HOAT compound) antifreeze.

Re: 6v t0 12 v

Yes, as Herb Concord says, the key is using proper size wire. I was having an intermittent problem and cleaned all the connections and used new 14g wire and the problem disappeared. These OD's...

Re: Bearing adjustments

I would check all the babbitt bearings (Rods & Mains) at 20K intervals.

Re: 1/2” Bendix

The issue is that it is not a Bendix starter drive, the 1/2" shaft used an Able starter drive which are not available. Easier to change to a starter with a 5/8" drive.

Re: Borg-Warner OD Wiring

I think the switch you installed is better than the kickdown switch.
Also make sure you check the oil regularly as the planetary gear needs lubrication or the small needle bearings will fail.

Re: Borg-Warner OD Wiring

The unit drops out of overdrive so if you go into reverse you wont do any harm but you won't be able to back up until you pull the cable and lock the unit into direct drive.

Re: Borg-Warner OD Wiring

If you use the factory centrifugal switch in conjunction with the solenoid you don't have to worry about reverse. As you slow down the switch cuts out at 20 MPH and breaks the circuit to the...

Re: Looking for seller of Penrite steering box lube

Ariens snowblowers use the same Semi-liquid grease (NGLI-00) for their auger gears. How ever anything from Ariens is a little expensive. I think the squeeze tube was $14.00.

Re: rear end/ spring

Really makes no difference, but you have to give some people a place to start, so why not just say Right.

Re: Lighting for speedometer and gas gauge

I agree with Jim, have been doing this for years. A #67 12 volt bulb works just fine.
