Really nice article from Richard Lentinello at Hemmings (“Reminiscing” story, edited by Richard Lentinello, comes to us from Hemmings Classic Car reader Dave Crocker of Mashpee, Massachusetts) Read on here
Been hearing a bit of a metallic sound and whilst I was working on the carburetor and noticed that the fan pulley on the Nu Rex alternator was turning independently of the fan pulley, which I’m pretty sure that it shouldn’t!
Will give Nu Rex in the States a call to understand how it all hangs together!
Start up and pull away after some routine maintenance
Went along to the Berkshire Motor Show with the Sport Coupe for its second show outing of the year
The first proper run with the new rear suspension set up, very pleased rides very well 🙂
John Cochran with his A truck was parked next to me, pretty good show with no rain and a few other American cars present.
The best part of the show was that proceeds went to Charity!
Had a few days off work and with Simon’s help caught up with a number of tasks on the A :
New Rear Spring
Tube Rear Shock Absorbers
Repair Offside Rear Wheel Arch
Repair Seat Back Brackets
Fix Slight Steering/Front Shock Absorber Issue
In fact we did every I’d planned and in two days!
Special thanks to John Cochran as we couldn’t have done the job without the use of his spring spreader 🙂
I hope to be doing the rear spring on the Model A soon, and my friend John gave me a quick crash course on now to use the spring spreader safely.
This story from the Monroe News is a reminder of how dangerous our hobby can be, hopefully everyone was OK?
After nearly three years of work and help from a number of folks the A made it’s show debut at the UK American car show season opener, Wheels Day at Rushmoor Arena Aldershot.
The trip was a 44 mile round trip including a motorway traffic jam and the car behaved really well with the exception of some issues on the way back. These appear to haver been cleared by replacing the grease added to the steering box by the previous owner with some 140W gear oil.
The Wheels Day show has had some ups and downs over the past few years but now looks like it’s on the way back.
Karen came along and John Barron kindly followed us there and back as wing man 🙂
Good day all round
The lovely sound of an idling Model A Ford four banger 🙂
