Re: Timing or ?

Stuck inlet valve. Pull spark plugs and squirt in some MMO on the valves. Let sit for a while.

Re: Model A Engine for Rebuild

I was looking for a new mooring. No grease or oil on this one. Looks like it could work.

Re: Reproduction Shock Absorbers

In the early 80’s I purchased a set of shocks from Mac’s. They were made by Superior. Almost 40 years and fingers crossed, not problems. They look and are marked like originals.

My father received a new 1931 Model A Sport Coupe as a college (Northeastern) graduation present.

In 1962 when I got my first Model A, also...
