Re: 900 turn signal housing metal or plastic

The one I bought recently has a non-metallic housing. It looks like a phenolic plastic. More important is how well the internals are made.

Re: Snyder's drops Signal Stat 900

I recently bought a Signal Stat 900 from a Kenworth truck parts dealer. They make them for various big trucks to plug into the wiring harness, each model a little different. You just have to cut off...

Re: toe in tool

I found toe plates much easier to use, and accurate too when compared with a rod-type tool. You can see an example on how to use them as well as make your own for next to nothing in the following...

Re: Alternative Air Filter Replacement

Go to K&N website and search by dimension. I use one in a similar arrangement to Bill and it does not run rich.

Re: Spark Plug replacement

Gerry, spark plugs are like Apple pie. If they're golden brown they're just right. You should know that.

Re: Seat Covers?

Look for one that fits a dodge caravan center bench. That seat is a perfect fit in a coupe.

Re: Moving back a fordor seat

Remove the adjusting screw mechanism completely and you can push the seat back at least a couple more inches until it hits the floor. If that's not enough add some flat washers between the rails and...

Re: 6 volt flasher and LED bulbs

Simple fix. Just add a load resistor to each circuit. Search on Amazon.

Re: 1930 Radiator Stine Guard

Mac's appears to have them, but they must be extra wide because under "details" it says they protect your lights from the elements.

Re: Turn Signal Flasher 12V

You may find that when you convert to LED taillights, they don't draw enough current to make a thermal flasher work. The simple fix is to add a load resistor to each circuit. Simply t-tap and run to...

Re: Canadian GL4 140 gear oil

I use Pennzoil syncromesh manual transmission fluid which is labelled as GL3 so should be good for older Ford's. They don't list the weight. You can get it at Lordco. No need to worry about brass...

Re: Model AA Truck instruction book/owners manual

You can read the Canadian version at cmaff.com. It's only a 10 page supplement to the car manual.

Re: Andalusite Blue

Andalusite Blue

Re: air filter questions...

I modified mine just like 51-merc shows. I found a Fram CA3998 or K&N E2553, which fit a Suzuki Samurai, fit just right. With the lid on there is about 3/4" gap all around for air intake.

Re: RH Drive Model A

If you look at the Canadian Model A Ford Foundation website (CMAFF.com) you will find Australian instruction manuals which have illustrations of the controls that will show you the differences.

Maxxis tires

Re: 1939 pedals

Just to clarify, it wasn't the pedal arm that snapped - yes they are forged and hard to bend unless red hot. It was the body that attaches to the master cylinder or k-member. If I had been more...

Re: 1939 pedals
