Re: Engine Noise - Help-Opinions?

Before my timing gear failed, it made a faint sound, that none of my Model A friends could really diagnose, and it ran just fine until it finally stripped out. Not really very noisy.

Re: No Air Cleaner?

Unless you drive on dusty, dirt roads, most seem to agree you don’t need one, and they can cause your car to run too rich. I’ve put 45,000 miles on two Model A’s over the years without one……I would...

Re: Facel Vega

I well remember seeing a Facel Vega on the cover of Road & Track magazine around 1957. I was super impressed as a young boy and still love them today, but quite rare. Good luck with your search!

Re: Hemmings MOdel A Calendar

I had recently received in the mail an order form for the 2022 Calendar, which I’ve purchased for many years. Then I noticed the Vintage Ford name, and said that’s it…..not interested any longer.

Re: lowering question

Be sure & search for precautions when doing anything with the rear springs……lots of tension there & potentially very dangerous if not handled correctly.

Re: Do you take your Model A to the local self serve car wash?

I hand wash, with minimal water and hand dry. I use microfiber cloths. I try to dust it carefully once a week, and use a detailer spray and buff out with cloth. A car wash would get lots of water...

Re: My Mileage

On longer tours, my 1930 Town Sedan, with the 5.5 HC head and Mitchell OD, has gotten about 22 mpg, cruising at mostly 60 mph. But driving stop and go in town it drops to about 15 mpg.

Re: Woven vs molded brake linings

The rear brakes on the Model A do a large share of the braking…..I think most would agree you should do both while you are at it. Randy Gross here can help with that….he is our own expert brake...

Re: Tom Wesenberg

I just received my annual homeowners insurance renewal with AAA, and my premium was within a few dollars of last years…..they certainly did not raise it due to higher lumber or other costs.
