Re: Longest trip yet...MPG suck!

As a newbie to the A I got worse fuel economy than I do now, mostly due to shifting habits and maybe not controlling the timing well enough. I noticed a big change when I retimed the engine as well.

Re: Carb backfire when release accelerator - Part 2

If you've adjusted your points I believe the next step would be to adjust your timing.

Re: 1931 Model A Deluxe Roadster

I would never do this to an A'. BUT that would not stop me from buying one it was done to. Of course there would be a big difference in price from a 'real' A. Did Shay produce both 28/29 30/31 bodies?

Re: Need advise buying a 1930 model A coupe
