Re: Clutch finger adjustment in car

Thanks for all the suggestions. Model A friend, Bob, and I did as Patrick advised. It went well but it was in close quarters. A true learning venture for the two of us with a combined 45 years of...

Re: Ford Barn sign-in

Never mind guys. I was lamenting to my wife how hard my life had become on Ford Barn when she told me what to do. Now the new machine is just like the old one. She's a genius, and she'll never let me...

Ford Barn sign-in

Forgive me folks, but I have a computer question. I've gone from an old desktop on Windows 7 to a laptop on Windows 10. When I want to post or answer on the new computer I have to log in with my user...

Clutch finger adjustment in car

Has anyone made a You Tube of adjusting clutch fingers with the clutch in the car? Like to see how it's done before I try it. I was hoping Jack Bahm had done this, but I can't find it. Anybody seen...

Re: Crazy temp gauge idea

I'm also retired and have a lot of time to think about all of the "what if's." I finally convinced myself that as long as I have my AAA card and my cell phone, driving my model A was much more...

Eat a live toad the first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.

Re: Distributer Condenser and Points

Not sure about the points, but the condenser at NAPA is an Echlin FA-82. I learned that part number sitting on my running board at the side of the road.

Re: Is the MAC's auto parts Model A Ford Engine Stand Adapter necessary?

Snyder's has always been our "A Team's" go to guys. You call and order on Monday and take a pleasant 1 1/2 hour drive on Tuesday and pick up your parts. Mike and all the guys at the counter are...

Re: Last Ride for 2020 - Questions

mgambuzza,
I read your original post and was interested to see your antique garage creeper. I have one exactly like it. My sister bought it for me brand new as a Christmas present. That was more...

Re: AAA for breakdowns in antique?

The first time I used AAA, I was only 1/2 mile from their garage. I walked in and asked for a flatbed. The man at the desk said "you let me determine what kind of truck you need." He asked me what...

Re: this is what I drug home yesterday- not Ford

Nice car, but don't sell the A's. What are you going to drive while the Buick is sitting in the barn waiting for parts. I don't think Snyder's or Bratton's will carry parts for it.

Re: Extended Warranty

Can you imagine having a job where everyone hangs up on you? I couldn't take that much rejection.

Re: Extended Warranty

Last time I played their game the caller called me names that made me blush. Some of his language I've never heard before.

Re: 6 volt group 1 battery

Rural King is the place to go. When I go in they usually ask me what kind of tractor I have.

Re: Hot water heater will not fit

Bryan,
Have you contacted Snyder's? Those people live and breathe Model A's and T's. Every time I've had a question I've called and have been put in touch with Don or Tom and they have the answer...

Re: Selling model a

I agree with Chris W. on this post. I'm retired with almost 40 years in banking and I've seen it all. If I'm honest and I'm entering into a transaction, by all means, check me out. There are soooo...

Re: st"A"rt in 46 seconds

Do you really need new leather gloves to drive your model A. I think my car would be offended.

Re: Ford verse Chevrolet

Re: First Time Tire Change

It's not a fun job but very rewarding when finished. I made some tools to pry with out of hardwood. Make sure you take off any rough edges. For lubricant I use Murphy's Oil Soap. Real slippery and...

Re: Firestone tires Too Big?

Yes, 31ASlant, the Firestones are larger. They'll fit fine and give you a good ride. I also have a rear mounted spare, but I heard that the folks who have sidemount spares have a little trouble...

Re: 1930 Roadster on ebay. Thoughts please.

I agree with McMimmcs. That's a lot of money to pay for something you can't actually touch. Either take a vacation and go see it, or find a club member in the area to look it over for you. He may...
