Re: Hate to start this discussion

How about some info on the Ford if you want a guess on the value. Include a lot of detailed pictures, cellphone pictures are great. Here is something that might be a starting point:...

Re: Acceleration problems

Check to be sure the throttle is opening completely against the stop. Be sure to post what you eventually find.

Re: install model B 4 cyl. into model A ?

You are also missing a place to attach the wishbone. That should also come with the kit to install the pedals. Try "Clings" for the kit.

Re: 1933 Ford Model B 4 Cyl

I have 2 Model B's. I have noticed most of the questions end up in the V8 section because of the years. I never considered it a problem.

The problem with a special section is that few people...

Re: Coker tires

Cheap rubber in the tubes. It is my understanding that Bratton's had a run of good tubes made.

Re: Redoing my hydrostatic fuel gauge with new red liquid

I seem to remember reading several years ago that the original fluid was no longer available as it posed a cancer risk. I don't remember where I read it but I would handle fluid carefully just to be...

Re: 6 volt directional bulb

I was assuming you were going to place an extra bulb inside of the existing taillight. Now it sounds like you are going to have a separate bucket for the turn signal with an amber lens, am I...

Re: 6 volt directional bulb

I hope your turn signals are wired to use the brake light bulb as the turn signal. If they aren't wired that way the brake light will wash out the turn signal.

Re: Boiling Bros.

Never heard this complaint before. My guess would be the master cylinder diameter or the leverage supplied by the linkage. Did they supply the master cylinder mount and linkage? When I mounted the...

Re: Wanted steering box

Be sure you know how to identify the box. They look like a '32 but the location of the bolts where they attach to the frame is "clocked" different. There is a section for "wanted" that you might...

Re: Juice Brake Identity

Re: what spindles

I always used the adapter kit and retained the Model A spindles. Most venders have them. Be sure to get a good one from a reputable supplier.

Re: Disc brakes

A friend of mine put disc brakes on his Model A (street rod). He soon regretted it due to brake dust all over the wire wheels. Disc brakes are great if you are driving through deep water (a stream...

Re: B motor

The motors started in about November 1931, the date you have is for the complete vehicles.

Production line engines didn't have a date on them or a serial number stamped into them. Post production...

Re: 1932 help

Where, in general, are you located? The VIN numbers don't make sense to me for US production. Pictures would really help. The more pictures the better responses you will get.
