1929 Model A Ford Sport Coupe Misfire

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!

 

A Hot One in More Ways Than One, RetroFestival 2016!

We took a ride over to Newbury Showground in the A to attend the 2016 RetroFestival

Against my better judgement we took the motorway route over, a shorter distance but very hilly and flat out. The A wasn’t at all happy and overheated a bit. I’m hoping it was more about the poor radiator cap seal than anything serious. We took the non motorway route back and apart from the current stalling out and popping back on the overrun things were OK. After the dramatic ride over the show was very good and as always a lot of Americana on show.
