  • Temperature Sensors

    I wonder how many out there in Model A land have some sort of a temperature gauge, be it mechanical or electrical?

    Well, here is a tidbit for helping to keep the temperature as accurate as the gauges allow.

    I don't know if you have stock studs holding the head on or not, chances are, not, but the ones holding my head on are a wee bit longer and made this thinking a no brainer.

    Below you will see pictures of the mechanical temp probe located in the upper outlet neck. Since I didn't want the actual temperature of the running engine to affect what I am reading inside the car, I made these short stand-offs and lightly tywrap the cable to them, not tight enough that it holds the cable unmovable.

    Why don't you just tie them up on the support rod?

      Well, one reason is it isn't up in the top hose, though you could route it that way. I have been thinking of putting strip LED lights on the support bars, but I have been removing them almost as much as they are installed, so I run it low.

      My sender is in the same place as yours only difference is yours is aluminum instead of cast iron. They aren't as noticeable up on the support rods and it goes straight up from the sender. Your car but those sharp corners look trecherous. I've seen a lot of times when they are tied to the engine harness without a problem.

      Dennis, the cable is only resting on the tab, the tywrap is only there as a guide, they are not near tight.

    Not sure what the back of this ute is.

    Not a Geelong ute.

    Probably a one off farmer's build.



    Canadian deluxe folding stanchions for a 28/29.




    A feral 34 or 33 (I don't know the difference) chopped ute.

    Dunno what body style it started life as, but it looked a treat driving in.

    The driver...

    Great Support and thankfulness
    by Bill G
    Yesterday, being Thanksgiving in the US, I sort of got a little carried away with feeling thankful for just about everything. Health being one of them. A dear friend of ours is in rehab after suffering a heart attack, and I feel rather lucky, even with the aches and pains that go along with getting older.

    Two and a half years ago I bought a Model A. It is something my wife and I have...

    Picked up my 21 stud English engine.
    by pooch
    I bought this engine out of a Ford Thames truck last october and picked it up yesterday.

    I run the same engine in my Model A hiboy, so this is going to be a spare for insurance.

    When I first bought my hiboy engine 4 years ago, I thought I was buying a 37 ford truck motor as that is what it came out of.


    I had a 39 Ford deluxe when I was 15 for a couple...
