  • Ever heard of a Bombay Bell?

    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?

    Is that by chance a "Bermuda Bell?

    They are mounted under the floor and give off a nice sound when you step on the mechanical push button.

      Sounds like the same thing. Was this an after market thing people added? Was it specific to the new ford?

        Not a stock Item on the new Ford.

          You find them on Ebay fairly often, usually between $100-$200.

            Some people like them. I find them anoying, but that is just me. I like to hear the engine run smooth and don't want much to distract from that sound. Bells and whistles have their place and you often find them with cars that have every accessory ever made for the A. Too each their own. Rod

              I had one on my roadster, and it made for fun in a parade. They are two toned, as the upper and lower bell are different sizes. Bing-Bong.

                I've heard of Bombay Sapphire and Bermuda bells...if you want one and find one look for a brass bell. They also made them out of aluminum but I think the brass sounds better.

                  They're not easy to find.

                    Two names for the same thing. Like in the North they say, “Potato Salad”, in the South they say, “Tater Salad”. Same thing, two names.

                        They are not all mechanical. Some Bermuda bells are electrical. I have a mechanical and a 6 volt one.

                              This is a good book for all you Ford fans if you are looking to pass some winter weather time indoors. Some neat points they make in the book, in relation to Model A Fords, was the story of 'how' the Model A came about (we've all heard it still interesting) but also later Alan Mullaly makes reference to how they pulled Ford out of the brink of disaster after he took over in Sept. 2006, akin to what...

                              I recently picked up a 1937 Ford Flathead V8 - 60. Can anyone tell me why there are 5 machined holes in the bell housing portion of the block?

                              My 1931 flywheel housing was cracked so I welded it. I can not get the flywheel to flywheel housing difference to less than .005. The greatest difference is .016. Do I need to replace the flywheel housing or is this measurement not extremely important? I have already have two shims in the top bolts....

                              by JKY
                              I recently bought a 1929 blind back Fordor with a Briggs body. Body and wood are in pretty good shape. It has a Model B engine and trans in it. The trans is locked in second gear. It wasn't locked when I bought it. Over the weekend I pulled the tower off. The shifter is sticking going into second and pops out easily, so I'd like to replace the shift rail shaft for second/third and the springs and...

                              by Richard Knight
                              How tight of a fit is the pedal shaft in the bell housing? It has been a long time since I changed one. After removing the pin should I be able to pull and twist it out of the bell housing? Thanks, Rick.
