Re: Burtz engine

What did you do regarding the rear main seal? I know others have left spring out, left spring in, done the double seal with oil in between.... What did you do & how did it work for you? Any leaks,...

Re: Wheel Bearing Repacking Interval

It takes 30 minutes max to repack front wheel bearings. Just do it every spring before touring season and you won't have to worry about it. I add grease to the rear wheel bearings every few years.

Re: a 400 on BAT went for 22k

I have been on this forum since it switched owners and I will say I cannot remember a car or restoration that Brent didn't pick apart on here. There's always areas of improvement that he suggests or...

Re: Little Trailer behind a Model A

We have 2 small trailers we tow behind our cars. If I can find pictures I will. Both cars tow the trailers amazing and you don't even know it's back there. Braking isn't an issue either, but I have...

Re: 3rd engine failure...getting frustrated

There's no excuse for your engine to have failed other than faulty machine work. We've talked in person and I know you're not abusing your car. You're just expecting it to perform as designed, and...

Re: Modern Ignition System Problem

This is so your ignition is on it's own circuit and doesn't have other electronics to disturb it. You should have a fuse coming off the battery as well. Trust me when I say you don't want it coming...

Re: Plans for the 30

I have had 12v for 10 years on one car, and the other car that I acquired has been 12 volts for 30 years. I would never go back to 6v unless I was doing a show car, but I'm also not a purist. Out of...

Re: What is Engine 'Break-in'??

Just food for thought- when someone asks for you to challenge their theory, they will find holes in your response just as you find holes in their theory. I've got better ways to spend my time. Both...
