Re: Got the old girl home

What a treasure! Drive it like it is. Plenty of shiny restored Model A's out there. In my book yours gets 500 points for originality, personality and lineage. Have fun!

Re: Air filter

It looks exactly like the oil bath filter on my old Ford 9N tractor. Check Yesterday's Tractors for parts.

Re: MMO use ?

I have no idea what the "mystery" is in MMO. But I use it and it works great with pure gasosoline and keeps everything running smooth. It may be Model A voodoo but I use it.
