Re: Nice 1930-31 19" Wheel

To give you an idea, the shipping from OH to Florida was approximately $51. Naturally, if you are closer, can pick up the wheel personally or have a friend that can pick it up and deliver it, that...

Re: Nice 1930-31 19" Wheel

Buyer declined, the wheel is still for sale. Shipping was too much due to distance.

I bought this cutoff Model B oil pan recently and realized I already have a B pan, so I am deciding to sell this. The B flywheel housing portion has been cut off. The flanges are straight and...

Nice 1930-31 19" Wheel

This is a really nice 1930-31 19" wheel, Apple Green in color. I see no bent spokes, nor dented edges, plus it rings when you tap it with a metal object, so I believe it has no cracks. I put a...

Lube Unit

Anyone ever make up a lube unit (pump, reservoir, filter) to take engine oil from a Model A crankcase for the purpose of reusing the oil after breaking in an engine? Seems wasteful to me to throw...

Is the original tappet drilled as I described, with the central drilled hole and the cross drill?

Re: Counterbalanced Crank

Thanks Bob. I am exploring a way that, if I did not own the car, I could determine if the engine was rebuilt with a counterbalanced crankshaft.

Counterbalanced Crank

Is there a way to determine if a car's engine has a counterbalanced crankshaft without dropping the oil pan? My thought is if the engine is run at a certain speed an "excessive" vibration will show...

Re: O/T Explain water bucket mouse trap

I can vouch for the bucket/roller design. I quit counting after trapping over 20 mice in less than a year in the house. Once we had them cleaned out of the area, we have had very few. Then I had...

Re: Mitchell Overdrive

I have a Mitchell in my 31 S/W town sedan, but with a 4.11 rear end gear. I plan to remove the 4.11 and replace it with a 3.78 ratio.

For many years I heard that 16" rims and tires were used by some to get a better ride and braking than the standard 19" rims (I am only going to refer to 30-31 wheels in this thread). These comments...

Re: Restoring Ignition Coils

Hi, I am just asking questions. I have never tackled the job. I just have a box of bad original coils and am investigating what to do. It seems a shame to junk them.
