Re: 12 V conversion

The main problem is that the '36 mounts the fan on the pulley and the front bearing for the alternator is not strong enough for the load. I would go with a later 2 brush generator ('39 standard for...

Re: Model A brake question

I wanted to add that the '46-'48 brakes are easier to adjust. Also if you are using wire wheels remember to run wheel adapters...

Be sure the wheels you plan to run are compatible with disc brakes.

Re: Model A rearend conversion

What many of the people are overlooking is that the Model A is not a car you would like to run all day at 75 MPH. I have a '31 RDPU with 3.54 gears. It is happy at 55 MPH. It will do 75 but at that...

Re: Model A rearend conversion

Remember you will need to add brackets to keep the rear end from twisting. My advice would be a later, stronger, rear end if you are going to make the brackets.

Re: Shopping list for new A

The reproduction KR Wilson is my first choice. You really need one that pulls on the groove in the hub if it is really stuck. See http://www.vintageprecision.com/products/hub_pullers/index.html ...

Re: Shopping list for new A

Post a picture of the hub puller, I doubt it is the one you want to use. Buy enough parts to tune up the car, if it doesn't need a tune up store them under to seat. Always carry a spare condenser,...

Re: King pin replace

I would take it to a local machine shop and have it honed. It will be better and if you are doing one it might even be less expensive.

Re: Rear End- Is it worth saving ?

The guts fit '32 (except late). The wheel rims are probably cracked from having been torqued down on Model A hubs without a spacer, check for cracks at the lug nut holes.

Re: Mod a water neck for gage

Note there is a raised boss on the ones the venders sell where it is drilled/tapped for the sender. I think the neck is too thin if you try to drill/tap an original.

Re: Is the MAC's auto parts Model A Ford Engine Stand Adapter necessary?

Check your local club and see if they have one they loan. If you are not a member maybe they have one they would rent.
