Re: U & J owners ... adjustment question

My money is on the stock small bore fuel line. Going to 5/16 just might fix the issue. I know Dean Yoder uses 5/16 with great success. Mike

Re: U & J owners ... adjustment question

Another thought Mark. Any chance your carb is icing up? Living in Iowa with high humidity and running without a heat stove can ice up a carb. This can be hard to detect and prove because when you pull over to check it out it usually thaws the icing before you can see it. It will idle nice and will s...

Re: U & J owners ... adjustment question

I suspect that you simply may not have enough fuel flowing to keep up with your U&J carb. They are not known for fuel efficiency because they are kind of a zoom zoom carb and that is why you notice the improved performance on the lower end. Try a little bit larger fuel line. If you have a fuel filte...

Re: McLaren Wires and Universal T Drivers --- Years of Tire Trouble

Mike from Vintage Wire Wheel here. I have been producing the McLaren Wire wheels for the past 2-3 years. The clincher rims themselves are very high quality. When I produce a McLaren Wheel I lightly knurl the inside edges of the rims so they basically grip the tire along the entire circumference of t...

Re: Pros + Cons of H/C Heads

I have had one of Kevin Prus’s aluminum heads and have run it for the past 3 years with absolutely no problems and yes it definitely performs hands down better than the Ricardo head I had on it. It has more compression and can easily pull up steep hills in high that it couldn’t with the Ricardo head...

Re: Luray Swap Meet

Here is my opinion. The key to growing and making Luray a great swap meet is to determine what the hobbyists of the region need to progress on their various restorations of pre war projects. I personally heard that folks were needing and looking for various “ small parts”. I think things like the va...

I am contemplating making the trip to Luray from Iowa. I think I saw somewhere that there is a KOA or Yogi Bear campground nearby that I can bring my teardrop camper to. I would need electrical hookup. Thanks, Mike

If you are like me you may also have a Model A or two in your stable. I am searching for a good restorable 1930-31 Model A roadster pickup body. I have all of the rest of the parts but the body is toast. Please send a PM if you have something. Thanks, Mike
