Re: lug nut removal

Are you unbolting with a manual socket, a 4-way, or what?

Don't try a chisel or something like that. The blows like that will break the shoulder the studs go through on that 90+ year old hub.

Re: Itís getting harder to drive my A

It's why I always try to do as much as I can myself. No one ever does anything right. It's always "ahh that's good enough".

Re: Itís getting harder to drive my A

I called a shop that does nothing except springs, and alignments, suspensions... They wanted to guess at $240 if everything is ok. I was close to taking it to Tire Discounters, and now wondering...

Re: Do you take your Model A to the local self serve car wash?

It would be my choice of last resort. Did you know that these wand car washes are 99% recycled water that goes through a filter?

Re: Best choke for downdraft carb?

Carl, what else has been done to your engine, and how does that thing run? I assume you have a few hills in Alaska?

Re: Zinc anode for radiator

Standard Ignition...wow, I have not heard that name in a while. When I was a kid, the shop I used to work at used Sorenson Ignition products, which were great. Then Standard Ignition bought them....

Re: Itís getting harder to drive my A

Good point. We just got back from dropping my 1967 ElCamino off at the Chevy dealership. They said that they will have to manually enter the alignment specs into their machine to align the thing. ...

Re: rocker arm oiling problems on Y block

Oil pressure - believe it or not, I took the tripple gage cluster out of my ElCamino because I converted the dash over from idiot lights to gages a couple years ago. Now I have the gages hooked up...

Re: Creating a list for what to do to winterize your A

I used to put a small dixie cup with moth balls on the rear floor. Now I make sure the car is dusted off, check the air in the tires, fill it with premium, drain the water. I sometimes put in 1/2...

Re: Crank case breather spits up oil

I have heard people say take the tube and cap out, and get one for a Model B. I have no idea if that works even a little bit.

Re: high / hard brake pedal

If you put the car up on jack stands, and put it in neutral, can you spin the wheels by hand with just a vary little bit of drag being heard? If so, get in and jump on the pedal a few times, then...

Re: rocker arm oiling problems on Y block

The only car I have that has a modified oiling system is my Model-A. The center bearing has a very small oil feed tube piped into it. I can hardly believe that Ford built them with nothing other...

Re: rocker arm oiling problems on Y block

I seldom put 500 miles ay ear on my 57. And I change the oil and filter at least 1 x per yr. I use Lucas Hot Rod Oil, and usually use a Motorcraft filter.

Re: 12 colors available in 1940

I always think that any pre-war car in Cloud Mist Gray always seem to look good. Just something about that color.

Re: rocker arm oiling problems on Y block

Is that a kit you ordered from somewhere? I thought the issue was the rocker arms? I guess you have to remove the motor to install that setup, due to the shavings when you drill?

How effective...

Re: Theft Prevention Ideas??

What Mart said...we used to do that when we used to impound a car. Not once did the owner ever figure it out.

Re: Overheating 1930 Model A

OK, I had to giggle. Of course I have done some stuff that made me say to myself - "self, why did I do that"?

Re: Theft Prevention Ideas??

How about pull the coil wire off if parked at a hotel overnight. If it's on the nightstand it sure is inconvenient. Of course if they have a trailer that will do little.
