A great gift idea or wall hanging in the shop when framed!

Thanks to all that have purchased the posters. The posters are available directly from me, or also MARC and several of the Model A parts dealers.


The "diagnostic chart" originally was printed in 1928 and came folded up in the back of Victor Page's "FORD MODEL"A" CAR" book (the little red book). While there were several reprints of this book from 1928 thru 1931 the chart “Location of the New Ford Model A Power Plant Troubles Made Easy” was only arranged by Victor Page in 1928, specifically it was not revised. The chart was used for diagnosing and resolving operational problems of the Model A Ford. The chart is advertised in the back of the original Page' books. The ad in part describes use of the chart. The ad suggests carrying the chart in your tool box. Further the ad says "Prepared with special reference to the average man's needs and is a practical review of all motor troubles because it is based on the actual experience of an automobile engineer-mechanic …." The idea behind the chart was to easily locate problems using a symptomatic approach then go to the Page' book to determine how to repair the problem.


Note: The Page' book has been reprinted many times and is available from most Model A Parts dealers.
