Re: Model A motor tear down Covid lockdown

Brendan, if you're up for a drive, Norm McCullagh does all the babbit work around this part of the world (Warrnambool). They're getting harder to find.

Re: Solution for audio system in model A?

I reckon the use of earbuds while driving is a safety issue due to decreased awareness of external sounds. I wouldn't go down that path.

Re: Marvel vs Model B carb?

Synchro, I bought one at the Ballarat Swap last year. Actually thought it was a Tilly until I compared them more closely. Of course, it could have come off an imported car?

Re: 4 for a road trip in a roadster pickup! Sure!

Put a glass bubble over it and you've got yourself a Popemobile! I bet NZ will have rules preventing you from doing this. Good luck with the red tape.
