Hello and Cartouche Quality

Usually I post on the Model A forum but I just bought an all original 27 Coupe that needs a little work to get it safe but I want to keep it as original as possible. It needs a new interior as all...

Re: Engine green

I do that as well. That is another thing, I think the Bill Hirsch paint is also too glossy.

Re: Engine green

I have noticed the Bill Hirsch paint is too green. Seems that original colors had more blue. I had some mixed up based on the chip in the MAFCA paint chip book and it looks a lot closer.

Re: Exhaust manifold glands

I think why most people claim they go into the muffler is people install them wrong and or use them on warped original manifolds. I have never had trouble with them.

Re: Accelerator Linkage Modification

The new problem you have is usually caused by the notches in the steering column quadrant being worn.

Re: Accelerator Linkage Modification

The accelerator linkage is forged and very strong. I don't think it would break unless you bent it back and forth a few hundred times.

Re: Accelerator Linkage Modification

A lot of cars have that problem. Get a length of tubing and slide it over the linkage arm and bend it in the direction you need it. You'll have to pull the choke rod as well.

Re: Banjo rear end lube capacity?

Keep in mind that the original 600w oil is not made. Whatever is being marketed as 600w is some kind of modern synthetic oil.

Re: New Front Axle

Rotorwrench the 7 degree specification is correct. A friend has a set of the gauges just like that.

Re: New Front Axle

Rarely are front axles not repairable. They are sometimes bent but they can be straightened on a press. The difficult part can be removing perches if they are damaged.

You can check your axle for...

Re: Front wheel bearings

I was always taught to tighten the nut until there is no play and everything turns smoothly. So pretty much the same.

Re: Replace differential seals and gaskets

It sounds like your rear end might need a general overhaul. If your seals are leaking they are either pretty old or original. To do that there are some special tools.

Re: What type of grease should I use for an A-17270-FL speedometer gear case?

I would either use mystic 6 grease or Timken Bearing grease since it sees a lot of rotation (though these gears are very hard to wear out).

Re: Urethane vs Base Clear

Base clear is definitely easier for a novice painter. That is why I think the industry went that direction simply because lacquer pailed in comparison and you didn't need to be as experienced and...

Re: Fitting a shaft to a distributor

I use a hone. The bushings are usually .5 inches ID. I like the finish a hone does, reamers are quite rough. It doesn't take much.

Re: 1931 Instrument Panel

Bill has got it right. Dan Bixby might also have one restored or a good original. I am running a instrument panel of his.

Re: Front spring arching and replacement?

I have seen it done many times. Many shackles wear through the bushing and into the perch meaning some welding needs to be done. I don't think it is worth the trouble trying to get the perch out...

Rich sold his business to a guy who already does engines and they are in the process of training. But they are not doing any new work.

Re: Clutch Adjusting 101

That's just the thing: I think most of the 600w you buy from suppliers isn't really like the original 600w but a modern substitute. Whether it makes any sifference is up for debate.
