Re: Steering Wheel Nubs

I am unclear of the question, but On my 31 roadster I do not have any "numbs" in the inner ring, or indents.

The 3 indents are done with the spider at the bottom of the steering column.

Re: Potential for manifold warping?

An opened ended wrench will take that bolt out from the upper left corner. It is very possible though that someone installed the valve cover with a longer bolt than they should have, then installed...

Re: V8 Clutch for model A

I have been using a lightened flywheel and v8 clutch for many years, and love it. The car spools up much faster when taking off from a light, and it requires much less pedal effort to press the...

Re: Overheating 1930 Model A

Bergs is the best on the market hands down.

But I would not spend a dime yet because i don't think you have a problem.

Re: Tie down wheels or axles when towing

Why don't you cross tie? What is the disadvantage in doing this.

That is what I have been doing for both the front and rear.

Re: Can't get engine started after changing timing gear

Curious, does it matter what side of the meter post that you attach both wires to?

I also don't understand. What is actually happening when you join both wires on a single post?

Re: engine compression

For a good approximate way to get what your number should be, number do this.

14.7x the head ratio number.

Example: 14.7 x 6.1=89.67 psi or 14.7x 4.2=61.74psi.

Re: Brake return spring addition

JD, I can't tell either from the pic. Let me ask you. Does the brake pedal return quickly after you release it?

If it does then the spring is correct.

Rotten Rotor from Rotorville!

Here is an interesting one. Has anyone ever come across this before?

Re: Distributor rotor

While you are at it, you should check the space between each post to the end of the rotor. Should be about .025. Every time you change a rotor or dist cap the gap will...
