Re: Rolling chassis

You might try Mark in Polson, MT. I don't know if he has what you are looking for, but he might be someone to talk to. He does all kinds of Model A work besides just speedometers.

Re: 1929 model A Tudor Frame serial number

That's not a frame cross-member. That is the body cross-member, which is attached to the frame. The serial number is on the frame rail and not on a cross-member. It is found under the support for...

Re: LED Headlights

My take on this is that the LED headlamp makers have tried to put the LED array in the same position in the bulb as the filaments of the incandescent bulb. It just didn't work very well. The...

Re: Question About Inconsistent Horn Performance

As was mentioned in two of the previous posts, the electrical path both within the horn and external connections needs to be considered. Don't overlook the fact that the horn button itself is part...

Re: Headlights for my '28

Is your 28 a car or a pick-up? Cars had nickel plated buckets and truck headlight buckets are painted black.

Re: Does Gauge of Ground Wire Matter

Each side of the circuit carries the same current.

Use the heavier gauge wire. Realistically, the smaller wire will certainly carry the current needs for all your electrical devices except your...

Re: Model A Town Cars?

Not to hijack the thread, but I have often wondered how the folks who rode in comfort in the back would get heat. The manifold heater would seemingly only heat the driver's compartment.

Re: Float-A-Motor Questions

I recently went through this very puzzle. Brattons and Snyders diagrams both show no inner pads but an outer pad and the outer plate. I bought mine from Bert's and I was sent both inner and outer...

Re: Ford Model A Camshaft Inspection and Evaluation

One thing that annoys me about some videos is the way people move the camera (or phone) here, there, up, down back and forth..... Pretty soon I get frustrated and nearly dizzy. I exit out and move...

Re: Visual Diagnosis, Maybe....

The timing gear appears to have some bad teeth, but that could just be the lighting. What issues are you having with the engine that caused you to pull the pan off?

Re: Brakes

Re: Coil or condenser over heat

I sometimes think that we fiddle with these cars just for the sake of fiddling with them, and as a result we over-fiddle and mess things up, only to have to go back and fiddle some more. A vicious...

Re: Coil or condenser over heat
