Re: Opinion on European Classic Tires

My Town Sedan would wander, even before I installed Lucas Tires. I installed a panhard bar in the rear which helped some. Then when I was installing my Mitchell overdrive I found a broken shackle on...

Re: Transmission bearings

I know Bert's had a limited supply of both bearings a couple of months ago. Not the same as listed in their catalog so ask for the "good ones" when you call Steve.

Re: Seafoam

I haven't been driving my '06 F-150 much due to Covid and no where to go. About a month ago I filled the tank and the fuel gas didn't move, probably from sitting on ľ full for a couple of months. I...

Re: Oh man. Now I canít even get my A to start or make a noise.

Good going. I always put di-electric grease on connections and bulbs to prevent corrosion and moisture.

Re: Stopping Distances

Wick, I AGREE! But try convincing some old(er) and not so old "Model A Mechanics" that insist on setting up brakes "as Henry did" or using the Brake Board. :p:p

Re: Stopping Distances

Synchro, do the rear actuating arms fit the front brake shaft without any modifications? Sounds like a good setup.

Re: Some battery information

Hi, John. Sounds crazy, eh? The oil floats on top of the electrolyte.

Here is the place I got it from and more info on how it works.

Re: Some battery information

I would think your battery guy would tell you to ensure you had a good water level, at least enough to cover the plates. When a battery is charged, whether it be on a charger or in your car, it...

Re: Opinion on European Classic Tires

No, Lucas is just down the road from us. I don't need tires right now. I only looked because you mentioned them in post #3 and they don't even list them anymore?? I'll call tomorrow.

Re: Oil Filter Poser

I think we agree on the BYPASS valve. But that has nothing to do with the Model A oil pump having enough pressure to pump oil thru the filter or the anti-drainback "valve" (what some to refer to as a...

Re: How do you all test for an intake manifold air leak?

Yes the propane is sucked into the intake thru the leak and the engine speeds up just like any of the other methods using a flammable gas or liquid. Just no mess. I have used those micro-butane...
