Re: Jacking up a rear wheel: Does it matter which one?

Leo has a very good point, and Bud has apparently had to remove a jack while the engine is running :lol: Be sure and block the front wheels. Now that the engine is running , in sorta neutral , emergency brake on half way, I mount the Beast and slowly , to keep the engine from stalling, push it into ...

Re: modern connecting rods with insert bearings

A lot of Model A guys are going with inserts with no mods to the oil system. Hi mileage is at 60,000+ miles. My race car has all insert bearings, only about 2,000 miles on it now. It is a must to keep clean oil in it!. Model A's have an oil pump, but not a pressured system. It floods the lifter area...

Re: What are the symptoms of an intake leak?

It could be a valve seal problem, at higher speed the problem would disappear. I would check out the intake manifold, carb gasket first. One of the old timers here would take a hammer and tap on the intake manifold near the clamp and re-tighten it. With it coughing at an idle means it is lean, but i...

Re: Interesting clutch on ebay

I was riding in a 60's car when I was 7 or 8 , not sure what it was , and the driver was showing me how it always coasted when you weren't under power. So coming up to stop sign there was no engine assisted stop. It was an automatic transmission of some sort, and I also remembered that she had to le...

Re: Valve Springs

If you are not running a racing engine of some sort, there is not much of a requirement, so probably safe from any of the vendors.

Re: Convert my 1921 Kerosene tail light to electric

There are a few guys here that have installed led lights in their side lamps that was circular and had its own battery, I think they were from harbor freight. They didn't have to modify it them at all. It would work well if you are only using it for a tail light.

Peter, Is there any chance of getting better photos of the steering box, and any other info you may have on it? I purchased the one on ebay and it is missing the top and the input gear. Thanks in advance.
