Re: Ansen friction shock absorbers.

The ones on eBay are way overpriced….check out the Offenhauser friction shocks at Speedway. Same thing at less than a hundred bucks. Yes. I have used the Offy and Zipper friction shocks on A hot...

Re: Engine RPMs

One of the things to consider when using Fordís data is the conditions of the roads in Ď28 - Ď31. Those numbers sound good if youíre driving on a dirt two track.

Re: Model A Engine Marine Conversion

Chris Craft and Henry Ford were friends and neighbors. I had a 1942 C-C 14' Utility boat with a Model A steering set up. Dodge Brothers also built boats.

Re: Open Cab Body Wood..1928 - 1929

I purchased those plans years ago and started a Huckster using a '31 frame and sheet metal. I found some differences between the DVD and paper plans. Nothing serious, but you need to pay attention....

I have two A's that were converted to hydraulic brakes over 20 years ago and I'm starting to feel cheated as they are still stopping on a dime with a nickle change. I switched to hydraulics after...

Re: Ok, i'll poke the bear..Ethanol or Straight Gasoline ?

I have non-ethanol gas delivered to the house from the Co-op. Last delivery was $3.47 a gallon. Worth every penny when you factor in the price of a Honda carb on a 10hp pump. Enough small engines...

Re: Does the weber down draft not fit under a stock 28-29 hood?

here's a photo of the adapter for a standard 2-5/8" air cleaner. Google Weber as there are several sources. FYI, I have 2 A's with this set up and hood clearance has never been an issue
