Re: Thermal Dynamics

Hello Dave- Yep, as I mentioned, there are benefits to running antifreeze and that should probably be the first recommendation. However, if someone is wanting to increase system capability (ambient temp or altitude) by squeezing a few more degrees from the operating temperature, running distilled wa...

Re: Thermal Dynamics

Thanks for the question, Neil. Andy Weideman had a cooling presentation out there that I'd like to reference but can't seem to find right now, so I'll put into my own words. The presentation refers to the Model A cooling system as a hybrid thermosyphon/water pump system, with the water pump being ef...

Re: Thermal Dynamics

What did you have for coolant when you last measured the temperature? Distilled water with "Water Wetter" will cool better than anti-freeze. Today's antifreeze contains glycol. When glycol is run in a slow-flowing radiator it won't cool as well as water. With slow flow rates, there is a "glycol effe...

Re: Thermal Dynamics

Kim, that's a great question. I'll take a shot at it, but I'm sure there's some engine guys out there that can do better. First, the following is from Wikipedia regarding ignition timing: =============== The need for advancing (or retarding) the timing of the spark is because fuel does not completel...

Re: Long running boards

These lug nuts are a challenge to make and I haven't found anyone to make them yet. Are you offering?

Re: Long running boards

I'm wondering if in your "ton of stuff" you might have some early '28 lug nuts? See picture.

No worries, it was worth a try. I've been looking for 2 years and haven't found one yet!

Re: VARIOUS AA PARTS

Do you have any lugnuts for the wheels? I'm looking for early lugnuts for spoked wheels.

Re: Manley crane identification

Thank you oldtimetowing for your response. I too was surprised that it lacked the swivel head, which I feel would have made it much more desirable. I'll share this with my friend as I'm sure he will be interested to hear this information.

Thanks,
Brian

The entire crane appears to be able to pivot on a lower support frame, but I wasn't able to get close enoug...
