Re: My New 'A' And A Few Questions

MMO added to your oil will increase any dropping you have. Itís a solvent and will thin your motor oil.

Change your oil and I think you will be surprised at the outcome.

Re: Body Leaning To One Side

Some owners believe all that a 90 year old spring needs is a little filing, a good coat of paint, and some dry lubricant.

Springs after many years need to be replaced. It’s money well spent. You...

Re: Don't go changing parts

Great advice. I tell people the same thing all the time. Even cars stored for years will come right to life. Gas, points, and plugs, first place to check if your baby wonít wake up.

Re: Oil interval

I agree that oil has changed in the last 90 years. The items that need grease haven’t. I change oil once a year, but grease everything every 250 miles. Cheap insurance. I take car to local repair...

Re: Tillotson carb

Get a Zenith and move on.

Years ago I tried to work with the Tillotson on a 31. It was just not worth the effort. Changed to a Zenith, never looked back.
