Looking for some opinions on banger running rough...
It’s a ‘29 motor with a police head, otherwise stock for the moment.
Last Sunday I...
How much chop? The height looks perfect to me.
Didn’t get too much done this weekend. Just headlight mounts. It looks much better now. They look uneven but they’re not tightened yet.
I’m glad you didn’t. Your car is coming out really nice.
I’m going to build a fold down top at some point. I like the look and wouldn’t mind something to keep the rain off.
No plans for a coupester. There is a small chance that it’ll get a 3 inch chop down the road, but that’s about it.
Quick, cheap driver. It will be modified little by little without having to be off the road for more than a day or two at a time.
I picked up a pallet of windshields at an auction and thought that this one was Model A. It is too short for my '30 pick up; so I thought it...
Thanks I've only been doing it 6 months or so but I'm amazed at how versatile it is.
I can not recommend HAMBer Mindover's video enough:...
I know this is an old thread, but I plan on boxing my A frame using oxy-acetylene. On the internet I've found almost nothing but advice against...
Thanks for the info.
Thanks for the link. Apparently they are pretty good engines. I had the same tranny in my '52 so I know that is good.
As far as speed equipment...
I got busy so this has been on hold for a bit, but I finally have some updates. My search for a rear end lead me to a 1950 Ford 226, three speed,...
Model A exhaust manifold. I think it's off of a '28 if that matters.
I looking for anything that's complete and has juice brakes. This car has a really tight budget so it's going to take some searching. I think...
Not mocked up yet. I'm hoping to get I rear end this week and then I'll be able to mock it up and start on the body.
After searching to no avail, I've got another basic Model A question...
Does anything hold in the camshaft? I tried to tap it out (with...
Just a few quick pictures of my wheels and the '39 hood. The engine disassembly is almost done.
Cool. I'll have to pay him a visit before I put the engine back together.
Does anyone know an easy way to tell the difference between original...
Thanks for the pics.
This is awesome. I thought of milling my own head for my A but couldn't figure out how to do the water jacket.
Maybe I missed it, but the...
Yeah I've been looking for a very long time. If I come across any more I'll let you know.
I'm making progress! I don't have any pictures at the moment, but the motor is out and mostly disassembled. The skirts on two of the pistons were...
Does this have molded rear fenders or is it just an optical illusion with the pant and body line?
Patmanta, good luck. Some of them have a lot of potential, others not so much.
These fins should add about 100 horse power right?
