You stated it will chatter, I say mine doesn't, nor does anyone elses I know of. I don't need your "theory". As I said "One thing that will cause clutch chatter when using the Float a Motor is if you...

Re: Flywheel housing mounting

Re: Flywheel housing mounting

The rear mounts have rubber insulators between the mount and frame and somewhat flexible but I agree it is a 'different' set up. I guess it has worked for ~90 years tho.

For your piece of mind...

Re: Engine upgrade

Can we assume you meant 'auto spark advance' since mechanical advance is on most Model As?

Re: Evan's Coolant

I guess I'm in the minority. :p I have never blown a radiator hose or do I know anybody that has. I do check my equipment out before heading out.

Re: Evan's Coolant

Sounds sort of like regular anti-freeze except for the "no water" part. And even then you are using only half the amount of water. My Town Sedan runs at 170F most of the time on 50/50 mix.

Re: 1929 u joint

I heard that also. In fact I have heard that all new u-joints are incorrect. Notice that most of the vendors don't offer a complete u-joint anymore, only the rebuild kit. Proceed with caution.

Re: Greasing the fan/water pump interface

I am wondering how much dirt is going to stick to the grease. Is there anyway you can gain more clearance and forgo the grease?

Re: Zenith carb

You could also try Renner's Corner for Parts and kits. David is a good guy. He carries parts for Tilly's and Marvels also along with instructions.

Re: What is a "reasonable" speed in a Model A for one to get "reasonable" engine life

Well unfortunately no matter which rear end ratio you have you will still have the big jump between 2nd and 3rd gears.
