  • Anyone near Marietta, OH?

    If you are - ever heard of a place called Marietta Ignition? I've heard they do engine work, including pouring babbitt, etc., for the Model T and A cars. Any info is appreciated.

    I am in southwest OH and we have Ron's Machine Shop down the street. Shandon, OH. Google them, most of what they do is antique engine related. I haven't heard of Marietta Ignition.

      Bang! Oh oh.

      Heard a bang from underneath the car. I had just driven it 5 miles and had pulled into a parking lot when this happened. Motor was running fine and sounded fine. Found the forensic evidence on the ground later. When I got the car home this is what I found. Not happy! What do you think has happened?...

      Interesting article reviewing a particular Model A Shop. Thought it was worth a read. Just spreading for general knowledge in the hobby.

      Engine rebuild
      by carolinamudwalker
      When I first got my car I took it to a local rebuilder to have the engine looked over. He took out some shims and buttoned things up. Several tours later I started to hear some engine noise and noticed about 3/16 of shiny crank shaft at the front of the engine. I dropped the pan and found all the connecting rod caps had tiny loose cotter pins. some were broken and in the oil pan.They served no...

      Engine pans, yes or no?
      by Curly
      I haven’t been running engine pans. I got a set recently thinking I wanted to add them. After dry fitting them I’m wondering if I even want them on.
      1. Keep engine cleaner.
      2. Engine cooling, although I haven’t heard any conclusive evidence this is factual.
      3. Electrical ground, but this is not an issue for me.

      Do you run them? Why?

      Does anyone know where I could get a Model A engine rebuilt in in Florida? Prefer areas north of Orlando? Just considering it for my spare engine I have.

      Engine Splash Pans
      by conaway2
      I’ve heard a number of Model A owners say these help keep the engine cooler - has anyone actually measured this ?

      thanks - Jim

      Rebuilding a model A engine
      by George Miller
      I do not want to get into bashing people. So I,m going to say the model A engine is one of the hardiest to get right when rebuilding them. You could do 2 chev small blocks or Ford small block to 1 model A engine, that is if you do it right. Every one always says how simple they are. But they are not simple to get right....
