I cant have a roadster sitting in the garage and not be working on it! After staring at it for three days (morning, noon and night), gathering tune up parts, and doing a major garage cleaning the time had finally come to see if shed go or blow! Monday night after work I hurried home to assemble all the parts I had been gathering up to see if the A would run. I had let a cocktail of sorts fester in it since I brought it home Thursday night. By Friday afternoon the motor was turning over by hand nicely, a good sign the banger motor would stay. After reading the comments on the HAMB from my initial post and doing some research I have made some decisions (not an easy thing for me to do for those that dont know me ): I will leave the fenders on for the rest of this season in Ohio. I should have another good month-month and a half of drive time before they salt the roads. I am putting new bias ply Firestone tires from Coker on the car (even though the old ones still hold air ). They are 6.00 X 16s in the front and 7.00 X 16s in the rear. I think it will give me nice proportions with or without fenders. I am going to basically leave everything just the way I found it for a couple weeks until I drive it to a local show. Then once winter sets in Ill probably look into a drop axle and begin collecting parts to build a nice B motor. And put the battery back where it belongs--if I can stand it in the wrong place that long! First of all the custom horns had to come off, it was nearly impossible to work on anything with them there! Much better!
