a little late , but awesome "T"
Yes it is
Come on Larry show the guys more of the T you bought
from Gary in MN
Ha Ha! I was on a motorcycle trip to visit my sister in Martinez, CA when PG&E was powering down to keep from setting fires a couple weeks ago. Craziest thing I'd ever heard of, although I guess it made sense too. I filled my motorcycle with gas before the power got shut off just to make sure I could get out of the affected area when I got ready to leave.
Hey guys I've got a nice running 31 cabriolet and was wondering how much pep it would give it if I swap the head to a 5.5 compression one? Worth it or not?

You need to ride in my T then before you re-word that statement...

Interesting bell housing post by Dennis G over on The Elusive 224/3.7 MerCruiser Banger thread: https://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum...ercruiser-banger.256713/page-69#post-13293879
I feel that a High Compression head is the most bang for the buck. Completely worth the money.
Got the car sitting right on the new tires.
Intake manifold is coming next week!
Looking to do a simple 6v positive ground fuel pump, anyone have any recommendations?
I would recommend Airtex E8902. Six volt pump that can be wired either positive or negative ground and pumps at 2.5-4.5 psi so it can be used without a regulator unless you experience flooding, depending on your carb(s). Can be purchased online direct.
Spectra Premium External Electric Fuel Pumps SP1124
I use this one on my Buick. It works well.
358 degrees, that's hot. I'm thinking your ECU should have shut your engine down by now unless that is an EGT sensor.
I'd go for a ride
Has anyone seen one of these? What’s the deal with it. I’m thinking model T head.
Model A... Estrange combustion chamber

JT1930 here you go. Hope it helps
JT if you don't use it I'd be interested in it.
I just bought a 30 Model A coupe but am having an issue with starting. We timed it with a timing wrench but the first attempt must have been wrong as it backfired. The second attempt at timing worked but it was running rough. After though the car seems not to be getting any spark. What are some simple steps to figure out what might be going on? I have some Model A books that I'll be going through to start with the basics.
*** at one time I tried to buy it from you , that's when you told me jay wanted it . at that point I figured I could not out bid jay …………… bummer
I be interested also ……………….. steve
Just purchased one! I plan on running a filter before it. I'll be fine right?
Yes it is. He made that comment twice....so you know he meant it.
If your tank is clean you should be okay without an inline filter. All I am using is the pencil filter that fits into the shutoff valve on the bottom of the tank to keep sediment out of the gas line. I have not seen any sediment in my carbs nor had any problems with the pump or regulator. I am using the Holley low pressure regulator on my car even though the pump pressure is advertised to be 2.5-4.5 psi.
Not much happening but we still intact....and waiting on the great pumpkin to arrive........
So banger people. Finishing a B motor for my 32 coupe. My nature is rebelling against ford green. What color? Winfield red? Yellow?
