Re: Steering wheel turns light switch rod

There should be a small brass bushing at the top of the light rod. If that is missing it can cause your problem.
Bratton’s has them. This is from their website: “ This bushing slides up the horn rod...

Re: Patching Inner Tubes

I could only find a patching kit at my local bicycle shop. But methods haven’t changed much, except you don’t have to heat patch now because the glues are better.

Re: Help! Brakes!

Did you reline with woven lining or bonded lining? Bonded can sometimes be thicker, depending on the knowledge of the reliner.

Re: Aftermarket radiator cap.

Your cap is the right diameter, but that radiator neck doesn’t appear to be a Model A. A photo of the cap would help to determine if it resembles a Model A cap, and another picture of the neck with...

Buy a set of Stipes. Save yourself a lot of trouble, work, and frustration.

Re: spark plug gap

1930-Pichup and duke36 are right, of course. I have always run my cars strictly stock, which reflects my comment above.

Hey Purdy! How are things in Alabam?

Re: Those were the days....

Those gold coins were also filed on their edges to create gold dust. Not enough to make the coins non-negotiable, just enough to build up a small pouch of dust over time.

Re: Car Will Not Start--No Apparent Spark

It sounds to me like you are way overthinking the problem. I don’t know about volts here or volts there. This is a simple car, and I’m just a shade tree mechanic. But I have played with and worked on...

Re: Front Fenders Hit the Shocks?

I put Stipes on my coupe. They made a huge difference in the ride!

It takes serious anchoring of old shocks on something solidly attached to the floor and/or a wall, then being able to adequately...

Re: Hard turning with new pistons

I had a similar problem with an engine rebuild four years ago. Car would overheat and lock up when stopped, until it cooled down. Tried different rings. Checked ring clearances. Reassembled. Still...

Re: model a shocks

Just buy four and put them front and back. Don’t worry about a $1200 investment in a $12,000 (or more) car.

Re: Model A parts Suppliers.

One of the reasons I like Bratton’s is they are willing to make a value judgment in their catalog on what they sell. I also trust Snyder’s, though I find their catalog hard to navigate. But mostly I...
