Re: '35 Radiator / water out the tube

I have a repro radiator. It will empty itself to well below the top of the tubes, even though it runs very cold. I can't see the overflow in the top tank, I think it is too low so that the turbulent...

Re: Early '28 Model A - possible AR?

The politically correct term nowadays is E28. Brent doesn't define what DOES make an E28. I would think it is the brake system where the handbrake operates the same linkage as the footbrake. This...

Re: 6 volt LED headlights

I have LEDs in my VW camper and they focus perfectly. I also have them in my 35 coupe and can't see the difference in focus on the back wall of the garage, but I have yet to go out on the road...

Re: Stromberg e fire distributor

Worked fine for me once the engine was running, but I had starting problems on 6volt. I think the starter was causing voltage drop so the unit wouldn't energise. Gone back to a helmet.

Re: Anyone fitted a rear gas tank?

I'm not trying to make my A safe, just not quite so hazardous. The belly tanks don't work with original brakes. A rear tank just behind the axle like in my V8 wouldn't spill gas in my lap. I'm...

Anyone fitted a rear gas tank?

There was a horrific accident here last year when 2 men burnt to death in a 1930 coupe - the gas tank ruptured in a head-on collision. I have always worried about 10 galls of gas above my knees, and...

Re: 40 banjo question

I find a stock Ford seems fine until you fit a panhard rod and discover that potholes no longer make the car dart across the road. Don't cut off the bracket until you've found out whether you can...

Re: Brake Adjustment 1936 Mechanical

Our UK annual safety check requires a rolling-road brake test. First time I thought I'd done the adjustment procedure correctly, but the tester said 'You have no front brakes at all!'. If you can...

Re: My 1935 Convertible Sedan died on the road

My 35 coupe suffered fuel vapourising because the original routing of the fuel line ran very near the exhaust. The gas coming into the fuel pump should be cold, on a summer day mine was lukewarm. ...

Re: Pacemakers and Model A ignition systems

I have a MRI safe Medtronics pacemaker. I've been told it's safe to weld with low current but haven't tried it yet. I've had no problems being around unshielded ignition like my Model T.

Re: "28 Truck Bed Wood Sill demensions.

Are we talking pickup on the car chassis, or AA truck? By sill, do you mean the wooden bearer that sits on the frame and supports the bed? I can give you that from my RPU.

Re: Speedometer Calibration

Any chance of doing a Speedo 101 class? I have one which runs 5mph slow at 40mph ( cost me 90 to find that out when I passed a camera!). I'd like to know how to fix it without sending it away.

Re: Anyone restored a E28/AR RPU?

Still no luck finding a plant code, but I measured the old bed side rails v. the new repros - 1/2" difference, and , of course the difference in shape.

Gas tank anti- squeak

With all the stuff I bought for my 28 rpu is a roll of gas tank anti- squeak. I assume this goes between the tank and the quarter panels. Does it also go across the firewall?

Re: Anyone restored a E28/AR RPU?
