Wall hangings

A couple of wall hangings I have collected over the years. One is a numbered print (the Tudor in the snow) and the other is an original painting on canvas.

Re: Model A Main Bearing Cap Molds

It is 1.5” aluminum rod. Cut off center to account for the saw kerf. Still maintained the diameter. In Wichita we have “The Yard Store” which deals in a lot of aircraft surplus, thus a lot of...

Re: Model A Main Bearing Cap Molds

There is minimal leakage. Just requires a little cleanup. I usually do a couple dozen small caps at a time. Once set up, it is quite efficient but hot. Noticed that I am out of caps and summer is...

Re: Model A Main Bearing Cap Molds

I made some molds that I use for the caps. I included some pictures along with the double lipped ladle that I use to pour both sides of the rear main mold cap and all the mains on the block. They may...

After putting the following Simmons stuff on my A400, I decided it was time to finish the other manifold and carburetors I've had for 20 years. Now to decided which car deserves it. :)

Re: Spark Plugs C-4 Take Apart With Green # and letters

Actually Model B’s used the 3X. C-4’s were for the early V-8’s.

Re: Rear main oil leak >

KR-- I had one that would blow free but had a small flat piece of babbitt floating in the main cap line. Sometimes it would leak and other times no leak. Acted like a random check valve. You are...

Re: Rear main oil leak >

It can be reversed but the part that goes over the camshaft hole will be on the wrong side. I checked mine by taking off the inspection plate on the flywheel housing and using a mirror could see the...

Re: Rear main oil leak >

My experience with the block/flywheel housing gasket. Many years ago (about 44) I put my first A engine together. Why I did it, I'll never know but I put the gasket on backwards. I guess I thought it...

Re: Auction purchase

I thought the bottom left is the 32 B cover. I know they made a couple more covers. The ones with a boss so the timing pin hole could be drilled either for the B or the A. I was lazy and didn't look...

A pan on a B engine

Just came up with a B engine. I rebuilt it about 5 years ago and ended buying it from the estate auction.

Now the question: Is it possible to use smaller nuts (5/8 rather than 21/32 or 11/16) on...

Re: Running engine with a Simmons Swan Manifold

Just got back from a short test drive. I was amazed that the performance seemed to be improved. The A400 has a Snyder head but being heavier never performed like my light weight 29 roadster. Now it...

Re: Running engine with a Simmons Swan Manifold

Just finished installing the Simmons Swam manifold I've had for many years. Several weeks ago I got a side bowl carburetor. It idles just fine but haven't gone for a test drive. That will be...

Pictures of original safety wire. It is from a rusty '30 Tudor that the odometer showed 30,000 miles.

Re: Touring with other Model A's - How does your club communicate

There is some feedback but squelch most of it. Also, a resistor coil wire does wonders. I have cb’s in all 4 cars. Used them for over 40 years.
