Re: Barn Find of Model A ENGINES

Re: ultimate 600w replacement

EP (Extreme Pressure) lubricants should not be needed in a Model A.

They are essential for Hypoid rear-ends, which were developed later-on.

Model A just has spiral-bevel in the rear.

Re: Bars leak duration

Well, water will cause the ferrous parts to corrode after a while, and the resulting rough surfaces will abrade the babbitt, but ethylene glycol reacts chemically with the babbitt, causing it to...

Re: Bars leak duration

If you are running anti-freeze, suggest you dump it and switch to water / rust inhibitor / Bars Leak.

If antifreeze gets into the oil, it will destroy your babbitt !

Re: Were Original Tires Easier to Remove?

The old cotton cord tires may have been softer... but then often the rubber hardens with age.

I heartily agree with #2 - it goes a lot faster if you're not worrying about protecting nice paint.

Re: Shocks worth the money?

I drove my '28 coupe year-round first year with it, no shocks.

If the belt is riding equally "lower" in the groove of both pulleys, then there should be no change in fan / pump speed. The effective diameters of both pulleys relative to each other is still the...
