I use to know what the 3 changes that were made in the model 'A' engine. The only one I think I remember is a change in the rear main bearing oil flow. That may not be it. I don't want to stir any one wrong. But to the best of my knowledge there were 3 major changes. Anyone have any info on this. If you plan to build an engine this my be helpful to know. I have an early '31 engine I'm planning to build and put in my late '31. Talk about these new ' A' engines, They haven't proven themselfs yet. This engine has proven it's 85 yrs.and still running (well I pulled it from the original car(e'31 coupe) that I posted picture earlier. I'll have to do a major-major rebuild. It would run but not that great. I sold him a factory I had for $500. The I had with this fac. rb. was some times it would start right up. Other times I would run down the battery, and hand crank maybe 1/2 hr. before it would crank( the last time was in front of a local FORD dealer show room.) I had a good '30 engine engine that would in the first or second turn every time. Using the same carb. and distr. Something to read and enjoy Shelby, Sacramento.
