Re: model A overheats

X3 on Bergs. I never have to add coolant and it never overheats.

Re: Mystery Engine Knock

Could it be a weak valve spring?

Re: Radiator Recommendation

I put in a Bergs radiator about 3 years ago. No more leaks or over heating. Also, I rarely need to add any coolant.

Re: has anyone used a TS muffler on their A?????????

The 9N/2N/8N pipe is a lot smaller than a model A, even though they look similar in photos. I don't believe you'll get the flange to mate with the Model A exhaust manifold.

Re: What kind of horn is this?

It looks just like my Sparton horn. That one looks VERY clean and nice.

The Berg's radiator on my '31 is excellent.

Re: Air Compressors and Blow Guns

I use an "automatic" compressor drain from Harbor Freight. Every time the compressor shuts off, it "blows off" a small amount of air through the tank drain. Once every couple of years I have to...

Re: Started another project

Looks like a fun project!

Did that pickup cab start life as a car?

Re: Door handle removal problem

Turn the handle as if you are opening the door, but stop at 45 degrees. Then you should be able to pull the handle off. You may need to wiggle it a bit - they sometimes get rusty.

Re: Losing performance after about 10-15 minutes

"Losing" is the correct spelling on this side of the pond, too :-)

Re: and the Antique/Classic Car Award goes to..

I took a look at the Hamburg website.

I see that Sarah's picture made it to the home page.
I also see that you are the mayor. Did you mention that?

Re: Manifold Vacuum Leak Question

It sounds like it's running lean. Have you tried opening the GAV a bit - or pulling the choke?

Re: Lighting at the dash area

As I recall, it's just one screw that attaches the light plus the wire attached to the ammeter. Once it's removed, it wouldn't leave any trace behind.

I doubt that Ford would omit them on...

Re: Model A Bypass Hose

I guess the downside is you can only use them once. Better keep some regular clamps with you for roadside repairs.

Re: Best 30 CCPU door panel fasteners ???

I have a 31 pickup. I used LeBarron Bonney's door panel kit. It came with these fasteners: https://www.lebaronbonney.com/cart/images/products/actual/1668actual-p51.jpg

Re: 30 Zenith Carb

I suggest trying a different ignition coil. They can do some strange things when they are failing.
