Re: 32 model b engine

I think there will be a few modifications needed to the pan, especially if there are counterbalances on the crankshaft.

Re: Drip Rail Won't Snap On

A rubber or dead blow hammer shouldn't damage the paint and if so that would be an easy area to touch up.

Re: Drip Rail Won't Snap On

Rub a little grease on the side (lower) you are needing to snap in and use a dead blow hammer.

Re: My First Model A - Questions

Re: Changing color of frame

Primer is usually for use on bare metal. If the base paint is in good condition I clean and scuff only before top coat. the less build the more solid the job.

Re: Changing color of frame

Just paint it as Krylon32 recommends if you wan't it a different color. You nor the factory needs or did paint things separately.

Re: My First Model A - Questions

Yes, that one is way too nice! as others say you can find one that needs to be one. I wouldn't buy the Mona Lisa and add a hat or ear buds to the canvas.

Re: NOS paint thickness

I once painted my '66 mustang exterior with 2 quarts of Centari paint, 1/2 qt of reducer, with a small amount of hardener added. It was my first enamel job and It covered just fine.

Re: Won't Start when Warmed Up

Maybe it would help better if you poured the cold water over the hot starting motor. I can't see how a hot carb would make it crank over too slowly.

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

Maybe the soap industry was worried people would keep their grease and make their own soap, a fairly easy process.

Re: Headlight Help

Headlight relays put the power closer to the bulbs, with less wire resistance. You can look it up on the net.

Re: pops, slips, drops out of second gear

Re: Clutch chatter solved!

I like the disc on the left, it looks well made with flex center, beefier hub attachment, and caged springs. I'm sure both would work OK. It's great you have a good working clutch.
