Re: Darned reproduction parts!

Locktite is good. I just took my vise grips and held the shaft and gave the knob a good hard tightening. Been fine since!

Re: Front turn signals

I think the original reason for parking lights were to protect the car that was parked along the side of a dark road. That doesn't seem to be the case anymore. Gone by the way of spats! I'm going to...

Re: Engine dies

I'm and old car guy but a newby to the Model A's. I bought mine last year. It's a learning experience, that's for sure. I was having similar problems with keeping it running. One day I backed it out...

Re: FINE POINT in OSHKOSH

There was a lot of nice A's...

Re: Tillotson carb rebuild question

I believe that looks like the gasket for the jet that you access from the bottom of the carb. My tillitson kit had that gasket included, too. Problem is that it was too big in diameter to fit in the...

Re: Mechanical Brakes adjustment

Thanks for the replies, folks! I guess I have some homework to do (reading upon brake adjustment). Seems the board method the preferred method.

Re: converted to hydraulic, no brakes

Hydraulic brakes on a Model A is no different than any other car. If there was fluid and and you had brakes and now there's no fluid, you have a leak. Look for a puddle. If there's no puddle, it...

Re: Engine stumbles on acceleration

$3.29 vs $7.69 Autolite vs Champion. $32.00 and you're out the door with a set of Champion plugs. Not a big cost difference. Is there a big performance difference? If there is, I'll buy the Champion.

Re: Engine stumbles on acceleration

Autolite ASP 3076 Sorry. I forgot to add the part number.
They are from NAPA and the only number they offer.

Re: Engine stumbles on acceleration

Bill OH,

Re: Brake question

Is that clockwise to tighten and counterclockwise to back off the shoes?
I'm assuming laying under the car facing the inside if the backing plate.

Re: Engine stumbles on acceleration

That's an interesting thought! The good thing about carb cleaner is that it evaporates. Doesn't make a mess as WD 40 would! I tried the propane torch method but I got no difference. (Torch not lit!)

Re: Radiator/ water pump

I'm going to try the AlumaSeal first. If it fixes it, I'm good. If not, I'll keep looking.
