Upon starting the A today I was experiencing a bit of a Misfire, heard a tracking sound and found a plug arcing out on the advance & retard lever. The car has a Simmons head which means the plugs are in a non standard position. New one on me, maybe the weather? All cured by a little bit of insulation tape. I have a modern cap & leads to fit but I like the old style strips!
Here’s a video of a lot of the work I’ve done on the Model A, (with help, John, Simon, Mr H, Karen to name but a few!), in the past three years.
I’ll improve it as time goes on, but it’s an interesting record of progress.
Brilliant video of a Ford Flathead V8 running without a cylinder head!
This guy and this video are both awesome!
