Re: Heater to firewall

As a previous poster said, I leave that gap there. There is more then enough heat to come into the cabin, and it lets fresh air mix with the heated air.

Smile Re: A Lazy Sunday Drive in a Model A

It wasn't that bad.

Brand new leaf springs front and rear along with rebuilt shocks all around helps make the ride nice and comfy.

Smile Re: A Lazy Sunday Drive in a Model A

Re: A Lazy Sunday Drive in a Model A

Thanks! and thanks for watching the other video! I wasn't sure if I should make it sepia, black and white, or color. But I thought color would be fun and make some of the drone shots a little better...

Re: 1930 Model A Gears Grind After New Clutch Install

As has already been said. Make sure there is oil, the proper amount of oil, in the transmission. Also make sure the correct oil is used! A lot of people won't buy the correct 600W oil and complain...
