Re: Setting timing with test light.

It should go out with just a slight movement of the spark lever.

Re: coolant Temp.

Sounds as if you have covered the bases. However timing could still be the issue if the advance lever coming out of the rear of the distributor is not traveling the full distance to each edge of the opening in the distributor body. This not being set correctly before the timing is set is a major sou...

Re: coolant Temp.

I think in a perfect world it should be in the 180 -190 range. This is a temperature that is well below boiling but warm enough for efficient running and to evaporate condensation out of the engine oil. My truck tends to run on the lower side at 160 - 180. Just my opinion but I think every A and AA ...

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.

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.
