Re: Engine stand

Bed rails are extremely hard. They eat saw all blades as well. Need a metal cut off wheel.

Re: Not enough power??

So that diagram wants the horn to be grounded separately from the grd that comes from the horn switch and energizes the relay. That’s hard to do without a separate wire, unless your headlight bar has...

Re: Engine stand

Interesting. So the engine rests on the pan bolt heads? Is it tall enough to have the fly housing bolted on?

Re: Model A Missing Badly

Have you determined whether it’s fuel or spark???
You can give it a shot of ether after it quits running and if it coughs and briefly fires, it’s obviously a fuel problem.

Re: crank shaft movement

There is a bronze thrust bearing that’s available thru the vendors when your engine is good, but have too much thrust. I personally wouldn’t want

Re: Shifting problem with all new gear box parts

You haven’t detailed “shifting problem”. You’ll get more ideas, if the problem was described.

Re: U-Joint Inspection for Vibration

Have you checked your tires and wheels for problems
Another thought is an axle bent at the end, outside the bearing. It would act like a bent wheel.

Re: Car died, no start

Are the plugs wet, or gas dripping out of carb throat after it cranks a bit, but won’t start. Another test for fuel, is a shot of ether in the carb throat. But don’t over do it.
You may have a stuck...

Re: Engine Knock at 2000 RPM

So - - - is it a knock, or a rattle? Or did it evolve?

Re: Dificulty starting model A

What type of points/distributor do you have? If points, what are they set at? Do you have a bright blue spark from the coil when cold? How about when hot, the same intensity?

Re: How is it.........

What makes you think they didn’t have failures?
Wore out rings and cylinders, poor quality oil and bearing wear.
I’m sure someone will have some facts regarding longevity.

Re: Brake Info Needed

Did you bend a wrench to get inside there, so you can get fully on the flats? Model A’s need special tools you know. Might as well start collecting.

Re: Head Gasket

One method,...

Re: Brake Pedal

I think Benson gave you the answer. Itís in the wear of the collar, most likely the clutch is to high. The collars are what control how far up the pedals travel.

Re: Renumbering question

Don’t double stamp!! It will cause problems down the road. As mentioned, restamping the engine is the correct way. My engine has a WN ———-/ number from the state, as the frame number isn’t legible.

Re: Clutch problem?

Did you look at the clutch movement, by operating the pedal when you had the inspection cover removed for greasing the throw out bearing?
