Re: Supply chain woes

While I understand this line of thought, this is exactly what causes shortages. All you need a rumour of a potential shortage to cause an actual shortage as people rush out out and buy up whatever...

Re: 16" Wheels

I don't know what it costs to have a wheel widened but you can have new ones made in a variety of widths and diameters. They are not cheap but they are brand new and sealed for use with tubeless...

Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

Are you saying that Chris is no longer welcome here because his car does not meet YOUR criteria for a "Model A"??. This IS a Model A only sight after all. May I ask, what was the point of that post...

Re: Bone Stock or Modified?

The only thing that baffles me about why someone wants a detailed points restoration or someone wants a heavily modified car that is nearly unrecognizable (and of course everything in between) is why...

Re: Most Difficult Restoration Tasks

Ditto. It's nice to hear that I am not alone. One thing I find vexing is that these cars are VERY simple in design and made to be assembled fast and easy on an assembly line and yet we spend...

Re: Mixing grease

I would agree if you are planning to use a somewhat "generic" grease. "Back in the day" I don't think there was anywhere NEAR the different configurations of grease as there are today. For the most...

Re: Mixing grease

Grease compatibility is very important. I learned this the hard way. Check with Lucas to see what kinds of grease theirs is compatible with and go from there. If you can't verify what grease is in...

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

This will be my last response to this off topic.

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

That is an interesting response from someone that started this by complaining about what someone posted. perhaps you should heed your own advice and allow those of us that appreciate the kinds of...

I won't pretend to know what others on here think, I can only say that I appreciate a little levity and found your "english lesson" amusing.

Yup, another pet peeve of mine as well. :D



Unfortunately, not everyone has a sense of "ha ha". AS I said before, I find it interesting what kinds of things irritate people and admit that some...

Re: Houston....We have a problem

When building the bottom wood I took all of my measurements from the original and checked those measurements many times before committing them to wood.

Re: Houston....We have a problem

Moving the back end of the skeleton forward an inch would be simple enough. All I would have to do is knock an inch off of the upper side rail (where the 2 screws are), then shorten the sill by an...

Re: Houston....We have a problem

The old floor piece is just there for length comparison. I would have originally been the outside board. The middle vertical board does not go all the way to the floor. Here is a picture I took of...

Re: Houston....We have a problem

Agreed. However, this is what vexes me so. All of the vertical and horizontal members fit as they should and the floor is exactly the same length as the original. The brackets that the front door...

Re: Houston....We have a problem

Houston....We have a problem

I bought the top and side wood kits for my 31 Deluxe delivery but made the bottom wood since it seemed pretty simple. Put all the wood together, everything went together quite well until I went to...

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

Re: spark Advance

Which might be a good thing to do if you plan to pull the manifold nuts/studs on any old engine. Retard the timing, run until the manifolds get red hot then shut her down and remove the manifold...
