Re: Fact or Fiction: Headlight Lens Gasket

Just a thought, are people flashing their lights at you because your lights are bright? Or because they are out of adjustment? I have seen more than one Model A with headlights pointed in the wrong...

Re: converting to 1970 v8 points for model a

The V-8 points are from any Ford V-8 from 1957 until Ford stopped using points except those with dual point distributors.

I find the original type easier to adjust, otherwise not much difference.

Re: Adding Guages

I wonder if low oil pressure switches for indicator lights are set low enough for the Model A or would the light be on all the time. Mine only shows ~2-3 psig at idle

Re: if you could go back in time, what Model "A" parts would you bring back?

Re: Headlight Help

How does that work? The sealed beam lense is fluted and the original lense is fluted. Seems the light beam would be, for the lack of a better word, confused??

Re: Shopping list for new A

Re: Battery charger

Never had a problem with any of the Battery Tender products. The have numerous chargers and maintainers, both 6v and 12v.

I have tried the other brand with varying success.

Re: posting a pic

Probably too big of a file. I have to email JPEGs to myself to make them small enough. Then I follow what dave said.

Re: Need help from Old school A hotrod guys, Jim Brierley, Ken Parker...and more

In the past I thought about using a VW Bug distributor hold down clamp but never followed up on it. Not sure if it would work or could be modified.

It is good to see Bratton's includes the...

Re: 1929 Murray Rear Dome Light

I don't think you can even buy reproduction Town Sedan (oval type) dome lights as I don't think they make them.

Re: Float-A-Motor Questions

Does anyone know why they countersink the holes on the rear mount? The bolts they provide are not countersunk. I installed the countersunk holes facing down.

Re: 1929 Murray Rear Dome Light

My August '30 Town Sedan has the oval light above the rear window also but has a different bezel than the '29. So do the Delux Fordors I believe.

Same thing with the straps

Re: Zenith Carb Questions

As I mentioned, you can paint Zeniths. I was referring to Tilloson and Marvel carb bodies. Bead blasting ruins the finish on pot metal castings, throttle and choke plate and shafts.

Re: Does anyone actively maintain an index to Model A technical articles?

Why would you expect that? People on here can't even post a link to part they are talking about and save everyone who is interested some time searching.
