Re: Headlight Issue

It sounds like a problem in the harness-lights contacts plate. Something in that lower steering column/main electrical junction is where I’d look first.

Re: The Standards...Do you have...

Are you goin’ Back To The Future, Pluck? You’ll need a flux capacitor and be able to get your A up to 88 mph.

Re: Longest trip you took in a Model A

Re: Longest trip you took in a Model A

My first long one was a 1200 mile RT from Portland, OR to Eureke, CA, in 1965 when I was 18 with my cousin in an unrestored 1929 pickup.
Next was a 1400 mile RT from Portland, OR to San Luis Obispo...

I have heard that it is the thermometer part that cannot be replaced that prevents rebuilding.

Re: Horn problems

Back off the adjusting screw a few notches. If it then turns, close it down till you get the sound you want. See that the commutatiors are clean and shiny, and that the brushes are making good...

Re: Steering Box 7 tooth vs 2 Tooth vs F100

I think one factor that needs to enter the conversation is the frequency, distance, and driving conditions under which you use your A. Personally, I try to keep my cars as close to stock as possible,...

Re: What are you working on?

Iíve checked the NZ RH bracket against an original LH and they are the same length. Even so, I expect some challenges.

Post Why do you own a Model A?

A man asked me this today when I took my Coupe to the grocery store, and it is not a common question, at least for me, when I’m out in my A.
It took a moment to form a coherent reason, but it...
