Re: Juice Brake Identity

46-48 Ford.

Do not use MMO in the radiator. Use a water pump lubricant or water soluble oil.

Re: Hydraulic throw out bearing

I agree,

If your name is on the registration, then you are authorized to do with your car what you want to.

Others, including me, may have our own opinions but in the end, it is your call.

Re: Scotch Free Roller free wheeling device

Re: Hydraulic throw out bearing

Why?

I definitely would not want to complicate things.

The Model A Throw out bearing works just fine as it is.

Re: Effect of too large point gap

Remember, we are dealing with a 6 volt system and the original Model A coil did not have a very high secondary voltage output to begin with.

Re: Effect of too large point gap

Points set too wide will not allow enough dwell time for coil saturation and the output voltage will be too low to fire the plug under load, especially at higher engine speeds.
