Check your compression to rule that out.

Re: Radial sway

Try 50 psi and see if you can tell a difference.

Re: Radial sway

I had a terrible yaw problem on my heavy town sedan. It was unsafe. I put a friends firestones on the rear and that fixed it. I then bought 4 Firestone’s and that fixed it.

Re: Hot water heater will not fit

Just make sure you don't lock yourself into a big job when you have to take the floor boards out. You have to be able to work on the car out on the road. Good luck.

Re: Hot water heater will not fit

A manifold heater does a great job in southern Mi.

Re: Starter failure

Connect a jumper cable between the neg batt post and the starter. Assuming you are pos ground. Try it. You may have high resistance in the neg batt cable. Easy to try.

Re: Lack of power/rpm

Make sure your fuel line is not goin too far into the carb. Ferrule should right at the end.

Re: Engine quit running help

When you checked the timing gear, did you see it turn?
Or, look down in the dist hole and see it the shaft is turning. If it is, your problem is all on top and should be an easy fix.

Re: Tire Questions

If you have a heavy Townsedan, be sure to use a stiff tire like Firestone. The excessive yaw was killing me.

Re: Wandering

Inflate your tires to 50 psi and try it.
The other thing you can try is to put a friends tires and wheels on the rear and try it. Easy to do.

Re: Replacing fuel shut off problem

It’s a pipe thread, it should come out without breaking anything. Good luck.

Re: Throw out bearing spring replacement

Yes, but that might not pull it all the way up. Take a good look at it before you take things apart.

Re: Securing the exhaust better

Don't forget the engine movement, especially with float-a-motors. Don't tie the front of the pipe down too tight.

Re: U-haul open trailer

If George is a show car, use a covered carrier. If not, it will be just fine behind the uhaul.
Tie him down tight and find an A club in NC.

Re: Model A Missing Badly

Something easy to check is a manifold leak. Get it running and spray starter fluid on the intake gasket area and the manifold itself. If anything changes, that’s your problem. Easy fix. Good luck

Re: 1st gear is slightly jammed

On the detents, make sure the spring is not bottoming out and preventing the bullet from moving out of the way. It stops proud to the surface.
Check also that the springs are not broken or too far...
