Re: Posting this for a chuckle, unless you're grumpy, in which case you may hate it

This is the problem with online auction places like Ebay. A lot of people think that just because something is old means it is worth a lot of money. Then another person sees the past auction and it...

Re: Cleaning Silvered Plated Lamp Reflectors

I believe a lot of the tarnishing comes from incorrect gaskets on the headlamp. The cork gasket should make it very hard to snap that ring in. It almost makes it like an air tight seal. If done...

Re: Possible Scam

I have gotten similar messages to that on here recently and also on the Tri Five forum. I thought it was a scam too. Always be skeptical of the guy who just joined.

Re: New Manufactured Zenith 1 Carb

There have been many threads on them, and I have come to the conclusion that they are hit or miss. Instead of a new one you can get a rebuilt one cheaper. I don't see any reason to buy a new one as...

Re: Wanted: Original Bakelite Distributor Bodies

I bought some good used ones that were not original but will suit other customers. Still looking for ones with Ford Script and one notch.

Re: Ever have a distributor rotor wear out?

Never heard of that. I would think that the rotor is supposed to be tight enough for little movement. A loose rotor out of the box is the only way for that to happen I believe.

Re: Tighten the 21" rims straight

The problem with a lot of Model A wheels is they are junk. People had a tendency to hit curbs and other things with them back then, bending spokes, the rim, and the hub. I have wxperimented with...

Re: Model A Distributor with Centrifugal Advance

Not that I am aware of. Most distributors since the 50s and probably before have a gear on the bottom end of the shaft in the place a shaft retainer would be on the Model A. Also a lot of these...

Re: Throw out bearing spring replacement

To replace the pedal shaft you will have to have the trans out of the car. You have to have access to the inside as the pin will probably have to have heat put to it and it might need to be driven...

Re: Helpful Tips: Removing Perch Bolts From The Front Axle, Model A

You are better off not removing them and instead welding the hole back to the original size. Most people do that and do not have any issues. By the time you get them out, you probably will have...

Re: Windsheild wipers

No. Some cars depending on the body style and years had either a hand wiper, a vacuum, or an electric wiper.

Re: Distributor lower shaft removal

Older reproductions were sometimes a poor fit, too tight or too loose. It could also be that the shafts are rusted together. Have you tried grabbing it with something? Could try a magnet as well.

Re: Paint prep

The only right way to do it is use some kind of solvent, preferably enamel reducer. Then you tack it off with a tack cloth. That is the way I was taught and I have never had any problems.

Re: measure gap between rotor and plug posts in distributor cap

What I have found is that too large a gap causes the engine to not run as well and backfire occasionally. A slight gap or the spring touching the carbon contact work fine.

Re: Rear Wheel Bearings

Not really the answer you are looking for but very few buy the repros as the originals are almost always okay as long as they have grease on them. If they are not, it is easy to find another pair.
