Re: Max Speed of a Model A in Stock Form

I can think of many other things that some of us will also exaggerate the size of.

Itís not how fast you can go, itís being safe getting there.

Enjoy.

Re: Mothballs

Mint packets. They make little bags you can place around the inside of your car.

Still check car regularly. They (mice) can do a lot of damage in a very short time.

Re: Spring start up

Service it and than take it off the Jack stands.

I am overly cautious, I would not start on Jack stands.

Enjoy your car.

Re: tire pressure

Good springs and shocks. Front end in good shape. 35 psi.

Reduced pressure just off sets other problems.

Re: Is some blowby normal?

No question is a bad question unless you ask it over and over again.

Oil breather, will also keep the fire wall cleaner. Venders sell several different styles.

Enjoy your car.

Re: Marvel Mystery Oil in Crankcase

I would not use in the crankcase. Just good high detergent oil. The detergent will work over time.

Re: Look at a car for me In Tennessee?

Re: Marvel Mystery Oil in Crankcase

We have used for years in our gas only. It has really done a good job at reducing valve noise on older engines.

Having said that. I would not add to my engine oil. Drop the oil pan and clean...

Whatever floats your boat, it’s your car.

Re: Are brake floaters worth it?

I have a completely rebuilt stock braking system on our 29, we even still have steel drums.

Re: Spark lever position

I really don’t think anyone could give you a correct answer.

To many variables. If it is running and sounding good. You are in great shape. Drive it.

These are very simple cars.
