Re: Water pump "studs"

Two years ago, on a tour coming down from the mountain in pouring rain, one of our group in the first five cars was on the side the road. 30 miles later I pull into the hotel and he comes in within a...

Re: Restoring Ignition Coils

True . But if you just let the coil saturate on the tester for a minute or two, it will get warmed up. A friend has a factory made coil tester, that has a warming the coil feature, and Iím guessing,...

Re: 28 roadster steering wheel

I have never heard of this before. I know some steering shafts have been altered and welded, usually for a F100 conversion steering box. Is yours stock, and exactly what broke? The steering shaft...

Re: Running board mounted air pump.

FYI. Some of the pre-World War One cars of exceptional value, had mechanical driven air pumps. That was of course, due to inferior rubber tire technology and frequent flats.
I’d love to see a...

Re: Compression test results, opinions please.

How about a leak down test? That would at least give you some insight to what’s happening.

Re: Angled

Was the car facing down or up the incline? Was the oil from the front or rear of engine?

Re: Engine Bearings

FYI this post is from 2013, and Jimmy hasn’t posted since January 2014.
BTW, my engine was poured from one of Genes equipment.

Re: Crankshaft pulley - cast iron, steel or aluminum

If it’s full pressure, then it should have the modern seal which goes on a polished pulley shaft. If you change pulleys, no warranty.

Re: Oil pan gasket

Yes you can, but obviously, it’s much easier out of the car. Check out the Santa Anna As website for a very informative article from the Restorer, on a leakless pan gasket install. Or just google...

Re: Vintage tires- any value?

This is a riverside sitting in the sun a few years ago outside a club workshop meeting. It sounded like a black powder gun when it blew.

Re: New guy here..my story

It sounds like you have a good handle on this project. Model A’s are a lot of fun, and I’m sure you will “enjoy the trip“. Plus, it’s great bonding.

Re: 1928 Model A crankshaft switchover

By that, I mean never turned. I may have another, in a engine I’ve never taken apart. It’s got a early pan with the clean out plate. I guess I...

Re: Tools...availability ?

Even with the “thin” wrenches, you may have to grind them skinnier for your application.

Re: Need Carb Cleaned or Rebuild

You’re starving for gas(lean) most likely. Where is you GAV set?
Did this just start, or is it a new problem? How long ago has the car been driven?

Re: 32 model b engine

The B will not drop in. The pan has to be reworked. I believe the A fly housing is used. I don’t remember everything off the top of my head. I just trying to tell you it isn’t a direct drop in, but...

Re: Where was it made?

On the sub frame by the drivers seat, there’s possibly a code. If not, then you’re outta luck. Someone else can hopefully give you the address to read the code.

Re: How to test vintage oil gauge

Possibly a bicycle pump. You would have to be very careful not to “over” pump. Maybe even a hand squeeze pump like I got for my foot boot after ankle surgery.

Re: A bad day!!

I can’t tell from the picture, but if the spring shackle bowl is short, then you just use a spreader to make it fit. Now you have the spring on, get a magnetic carpenters angle Reader, and measure...
