Re: Rod knockin'

I lucked out on this one, turns out my timing was too far advanced. Retarded the time, and the rattle stopped! Well, maybe spoke too soon, when I retarded the timing, the rattle or clatter sound went away. Now it is back at a different rpm and under load mostly, I’m running a Zipper centrifugal dis...

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. Thank you for responding, I was kind...

Oil pressure

My oil pressure when cold is around 4 lbs, then continues to drop off to nothing as it warms, is this normal. Running 10w 30 oil as per engine builder specs.Engin e also seems to get noisy.

Re: Coolant system question!

I had my A radiator Pressurized. I also installed a fan shroud. The temperature always stays mid range even when in the Fourth of July parade on a 100 degree day. My cooling system has been flushed and de-rusted with RUST911. Are you running the 2 blade fan also? I’m thinking my next step is a shro...

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. Mod...

Re: Coolant system question!

I take that back, Too much. The replacement can be had with Std. or 'cut down' veins. cut down are so they don't move too much and pump out the over flow tube. Do you have a heat problem? It starts puking out the overflow before it even warms up. I had a 6 lb pressure cap on it and the pressure ble...

It may not be a rod bearing. My engine is still running smooth at idle and low speed.When I accelerate to mid range or higher it has a ferocious hard rattle.
Did you ever find that rattle? mine just started doing the same thing. My engine is a fresh rebuild by Antique Engines

Re: Installing a 30-31 hood and radiator shell on a 28

The deuce grille is always an improvement on any vehicle. Like I said in my earlier reply you needed to change to the 30 31 front cross member as the 28 29 is higher on the radiator mounts and it shows up on your truck. Your radiator is higher than your cowl. It's a little thing and if it doesn't b...
