Re: Water pump questions

The original style water pump is a poor design, IMO. To say they last for years only says to me that the car is hardly used. The stainless steel shafts we have to use these days are soft. The packing...

Did the roads exist to get the best out of a car like that?

Re: Scammers on here

0 posts is a give away. Once a "new member" tries a scam, he is reported and Ryan promptly deletes them from the forum. Did you report those 3?

Re: Scrap Drives May Have Trashed Cars, But Were the Drives Necessary?

IMO, people in those days knew that what had to be done had to be done. I think they would have worn them without question.

Re: "Diamond engine"

Sammy's Model A knowledge is legendary and he is not backwards in sharing it. I've known him for quite a while now and he has been helpful right through. Sam and Bonnie too.

Re: A working Sedan Delivery

I wouldn't like to be in that car if it hit something solid. Passengers would end up needing their own machining.

Re: New Shoes !

NICE! Wouldn't I like a set of radials for my car! I've heard different reports on how long they last. Do you get more miles out of them or is it just the better ride and handling.
I'm looking...

Re: King pin replace

Reaming is fine, especially precision reaming but honing has limitations as I have described.

Re: King pin replace

I had to google to see what a Sonnen Pin Hone was was. This is what I found https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5UqmpMME88 which looks VERY agricultural to me. Those big end bearings are not likely to...

Re: Crazy temp gauge idea

With by far the majority of the world using Celsius, why do American vendors insist on selling the antiquated Fahrenheit stuff without even a second scale? When I look at my US made tamp gauge and...

Re: King pin replace

Whenever this topic comes up, people chime in saying the bushes should be honed. NO! we are looking for a ROUND hole on size. Honing will not make an oval shaped hole round. A ream will.

Re: Crazy temp gauge idea

It doesn't take much of an overheat episode to crack a Model A block (usually at #2 or #3 exhaust port to the cylinder). The way we drive these cars is nothing like the way they were expected to be...

Re: Where do I go from here??

About 2 years ago, I bought a 1930 CCPU out of Arizona. The seller had the car worked on at his local Ford dealer before selling. What a stuff up!
They had NO CLUE on the Model A. The brakes had...

Re: Why would anybody buy a car and not ask for the key?

I wonder what became of the original chassis and mechanicals. Clearly, all he wanted was the body, which he preceded to cut up anyway.

I saw nothing that had been left out so I don't think it will matter if it is put back together without them.

Re: Trailering 28 Model A Phaeton

If you're going to use a winch to pull the car onto the trailer, DO NOT put the cable around the middle of the axle - you will bend it. Attach either both sides at the A frame or even just one side....

Thanks (I think) for posting.
