Re: New to Fordbarn

Looks like a fine Model A. First thing I would do is find a local Model A club to join. Then I would purchase the Les Andrews REDBOOK. There are all kinds of YOUTUBE videos out there on Model...

Re: New Snyders catalog

Received my Snyders Catalog too. I think it is the first one I received from them. I enjoyed skimming the pages. I find my parts with their search engine on the website and then order on-line.

Re: Any advice?

Check the point gap. If that does not clear it up, I would change the condenser.

Re: Do I need a new Coil?

If you do not already have it, purchase the Les Andrews Red Book. It goes through step by step what to check; what voltage you should have and where the voltage is. Check your point gap.

Re: Fitted floor mats

Maybe you could make the mats yourself using the rubber floormat as a template. Fun project if you do and can be customized to your liking. I made my front carpet using this process.

Re: Logo Lites - Replacing the Turn Signals

I installed the LOGO Lite set up in my TUDOR and I really like them. Easy to install; no drilling of holes; adds to the safety of driving the car.

Re: 700 miles in a tired Model A

Watched this video today. Enjoyed it. The video certainly speaks to the design of the Model A and durability. He says he is going to restore it. I hope to see this in upcoming videos.

Re: Won't Start....

I seemed to have read that you still do not have spark at the plugs or plug leads. Please check two things:

2. Make sure that you have measured 6V...

Re: Won't Start....

Remember that you have to have a measured 6V to the points. If you do not have this, it is likely the ignition switch or the wire from the ignition switch to the distributor.
Also, make sure the...
