Re: Warford shift lever ball

It has the same heft and feel as the standard shift balls but yes it is metal. Didn't realize that until you asked and I put a magnet to it.

Re: AA high speed worm drive.

Mine is very quiet. Have you ever had yours apart? You might have a journal roller bearing that has gone bad.

Hmmm... either no one else has a Warford or folks don't have the "balls" to reply. :lol:

Re: Mirror advice

I have the short arm mirrors mounted using the two round headed bolts that attach the visor. I have a mirror on both sides. Works quite well and visibility is "good".

Re: Coolant system question!

KVO if your water is at 245 I wouldn't be running it until I figured out what is wrong. Since you have a new radiator I would be looking at your timing to see if it is very retarded. Have you had the head off to see if the water passages are clogged with rust or grease?

Warford shift lever ball

I'm curious if others with Warfords have flat spots around the shift lever ball like I have on mine. I think that it adds a nice look to it.

Re: Rod knockin'

Go back to the stock distributor set up and see if that helps. That way you will know if that is the problem.
You don't want to be running it if it is so advanced it's causing it to knock. Engines don't like that.

Re: Oil pressure

The Model A engine has a high flow oil pump with very low pressure. Higher pressure reading at start up with cold oil and pressure dropping off after the oil warms up is perfectly normal. An oil gauge in a Model A can make some worry when the pressure goes away.

Warford cluster gear shaft.

I picked up a Warford last week and have found that the shaft going through the cluster gear has more wear on it than I’m comfortable with. Would anyone have a one that they would be willing to sell?
Failing that I will look into having one made.

Re: Coolant system question!

Timing will not affect water being pushed out of the radiator. That said if your timing is too retarded it will cause it to overheat and then that will cause issues. If your set up caused the upper hose to split you are very lucky that the hose split and not your radiator. Model A radiators are not ...

Re: Coolant system question!

If this is a stock Model A engine then you should not be using a pressurized cap. Even then a pressurized cap shouldn't cause pressure to build up as the overflow tube should prevent pressure from building up. If you fill your radiator to the top of the neck it will puke coolant out right away. Mode...

Re: 1931 AA

Hi Jack. In my opinion it is best to run a modern coolant/antifreeze in a Model AA and Model A. Modern coolants have additives that prevent rust in the block that will cause the radiator to plug and overheat the engine. Also you will not have to worry about freezing temperatures and damage to your e...

Re: WTB, Rear 88A platform bed crossmember

If you do end up pulling it apart and repairing it try grinding the back sides of the rivets off and punching them out and saving them. I did this with my front cross member. When I re-assembled it I placed the rivets back in and then mig welded the back side of the rivets in place. This way the riv...

Re: Help. I think I killed my starter. Engine won't crank

You can try it with your battery charger directly. Polarity doesn't matter but usually the negative would go to the post on the battery and the positive to ground. To make sure that it isn't the switch that is causing you troubles remove it and touch the negative to the flat post that you will find ...
