Re: Shift tower rebuild

Question. How do I delete a post? I posted twice by mistake and can't figure out how to get rid of one. FAQ don't help.

An easy thing to check is: next time it won’t start, pour about a half a bottle of water on the carb bowl. If that fixes it, your carb is getting too hot. Good luck.

Re: Water pump questions

Run it a while and see if it loosens up a bit. You should be good with that new packing for many years.

Re: Fuses

Be sure to fuse you brake light circuit. That one is messy to fix on the road. Right under the middle of the car.

Re: My First Model A - Questions

You just can't jump in and start driving it in hill country without checking over a lot of things. Look for a Model A club near you and join it. There is a lot of help out there. Get the red Les...

Re: Upper steering race

Jack the wheels off the ground and spin the steering wheel. It would grind if the race is cracked. I doubt that it is cracked. If it steered good last month, it’s not the upper race.

Use a nice big sheet of cardboard and forget he creeper. Just a big box you can pitch when it gets dirty.

Re: King pin replace

If you do use a reamer, be sure you never turn it counterclockwise. You can ruin it with one little twist backwards.

Mystery Part What is it?

Anyone know what this is? We found it in a Club Members collection we were cleaning out. Hope the picture comes through.

Re: Where do I go from here??

I would check the fluids and drive it. If something feels or sounds bad, go after that item. Don’t go doing a lot of busy work unless you just want to play with it to get to know it. Join a local...

Re: Troubleshooting advice

I bet your problem is an intake air leak. Do the trick with starting fluid before you start taking things apart. Goo luck.
