Re: 29 Model A no spark on 2-4

By "move the GAV in and out" I think old31 means by turning GAV clockwise or counter clockwise, not by pulling the rod in and out. When turning clockwise, don’t turn it down real tight when it...

Considering buying a T

Iíve always been a Model A guy, but this is tempting. The seller says itís all original, 90% complete, and was running when parked. Been in the family since new. It looks a little rough, but good...

Re: Steering Wobble Troubleshooting

Check the ball on the wishbone too. Too loose or out of round can adversely affect your steering geometry.

Re: Birthday present

Maybe you just have the wrong insurance company.

Two years ago I made a $900 claim on a fender bender with my 29 coupe to Hagerty. Sent pictures. No problems. Paid promptly.

Same thing with my...

Re: Birthday present

I would suggest you do not take the fender off for any body work. Doing so runs a risk of it not fitting when returned. Do the hammer and dolly work with the fender bolted in place, then take it off...

Re: Model A Shock

Shocks are notoriously hard to disassemble. Your experience is normal. I’ve heard of guys bolting their workbench to the floor and the wall, bolting the shock to the bench, using a 6’ bar and a chain...
