Re: help me narrow down oil selection

Re: Unhappy with pressurised radiator

The car doesn’t care or know the difference between a pressurized and non pressurized radiator. Putting a pressurized radiator on is only exasperating an existing issue. Lots of helpful suggestions...

Re: MARC 2022 National Meet

He does this for a lot of the posts, and I find it easier to read that way. Beats having to click on...

Re: Victoria with moveable stick shift

Yes. Put the shifter in 3rd gear, pull up with a decent effort and rotate it up against the gas tank, near the choke rod.

This can be done sitting in the garage, or going down the road.

Re: Vintage Precision Hub Puller

Those things are too ugly for my tastes. You can buy reproduction outlet necks with a threads for a temp sender cast right into them. They look correct and function perfectly.

Re: Original Radiator Question

It's not an original, you can tell by the tank stamping. I believe the judging standards show the different styles of radiators throughout 28-31.

Search “clings model a”, and it comes out on top! Clings system is way too generic for the results you seek. No agitation here! Just offering help.

Re: ‘35 gas pedal rod?

Model A’s send a leather type of material for this. You can find them in the A parts catalogs. I can’t imagine 35’s were much different.
