Re: Floor Mat

I really don’t understand why you have to remove anything? You should just be able to put it in over the gear and brake handles. Than trim at seat if needed.

Re: Best way to sell parts

I have used eBay for the last few years to sell off all my odds and ends. Used pictures on everything. Sold items I never felt would sell. Be careful on shipping costs.

Re: Ammeter question.

Re: Air Filter

I always have used an air filter along with engine side pans.

Keeps big things out of the engine. Never a problem with carburetor settings. Stops flash back from carb to.

Re: Engine Noise - Help-Opinions?

I would put car away for the winter and not worry about it. In the spring, give the oil and MMO a chance to work. These engines take a licking and keep on ticking. They will go forever.

Re: Front spring arching and replacement?

My normal spring comment goes like this. You have been sitting watching TV in your favorite chair for 90 plus years 24 7 365. What do you think that chairs springs are going to look like.

Re: Creating a list for what to do to winterize your A

OK! For 60 plus years I have done the same thing.

I leave very little gas in the tank. Almost empty. Stabilizer.

35 psi in tires.

Run carburetor dry of gas.

Remove fuse.

Re: Foamy Transmission Oil

I know this not your first rodeo, but I still have to ask. Is the vent clean?

I have never had this happen to one of our cars. I use half 600w and half STP.

How much oil is it leaving when parked?
