Re: opinions on 'lifts'

Very nicely said. This is the issue I found with the Quick Jack on my Model A.

Re: opinions on 'lifts'

I have a Quick Jack, but Iíve never used it on my Model A. Iíve never figured a way to find usable jack points on the Model A.

Correct wiring harness

I bought my Victoria from him a couple of years ago, and he threw in a wiring harness. He is a fine man, and he does very good work.

Roadster tulip panel issues

Re: Bearing Socket Size

Thatís the tool I purchased, and itís awkward to store in my toolbox. It seems the Brattonís tool would be easier to store.

Opinion on European Classic Tires

What did you end up buying? Who was the supplier? Were the tires in stock when you placed the order?

Re: Tech help with model A cabin space.

I agree that Model As are a tight fit. Believe it or not, my Miata has more room than my Model A.

Re: Leaky Tire

Thanks for the steps. Now, I just need to find a place that actually has tires in stock. I would prefer whitewall radials, but so far I havenít had any luck.

Out of curiosity, how thick is the tread on a brand new Firestone bias ply tire?

Leaky Tire

Itís rare that the car gets caught in the rain. If it rains, the car normally stays parked. Skinny little (new or old) tires are not that great in the rain.

Re: Leaky Tire

Thanks for the help. However, it looks like the leaky tire is a moot point for now. I measured the tread depth, and it needs replaced.

For me, that may be a better plan than potentially making a mess in the bathtub.
