  • 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.

      1. Keep engine cleaner.

      Do you run them? Why?

      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....

      I was doing some casual reading on various late Model A’s and I came across the Bombay Bell. I’m interested in learning more about this. Does anyone have knowledge of this?...
