  • GAV Socket

    I purchased 4 of those limited production custom GAV sockets a few years back. I still have 2 extras and would like to offer them here to a couple VFF members. My original plan was to put them on EBAY for double what i paid, but that was before the VFF was even thought of. I have decided to sell these at cost here on the forum which is 24.00 and 7.15 shipping. domestic

            I have one and it works great!! I used it on the zenith 3 bottom that I bought from Rowdy . That GAV part came right out no problem . The butterfly was not so easy. Norm

                It's somewhere between 7/16 and 11mm, and since I have been working on these Zenith carbs, I have used everything including a 10mm to remove the GAVs.

                    I bought 3 of these. One I kept, the other 2 went to friends that do a lot of carb work. They tell me that the sockets work perfectly.

                    I wonder if he is still making them?

                      So is this just a deep well socket with the wall thickness thinned down?

                          NO It's a specially crafted tool that will fit both size GAV's ,, It's something that will probably never be reproduced again.

                            I will have to look at my GAV's. I have a few carbs I am going to start on soon. You can use a long hollow nut driver also?

                              Well, I don't know about the nut drivers you own, but all of the ones I have that are large enough to fit the hex, don't have the shaft large enough to make the hole large enough to fit over the rest of the GAV. Ya never know what is out there there might be something to do that without using a deep socket.

                              I just use a deep 10mm, 11mm, and 7/16th socket for the ones I have encountered.

                                by Dave O'Neill
                                I have been discussing an issue with Snyders and Brattons over the last couple of weeks, and thought I would bring you guys in on the conversation.

                                After looking at why so many Model A's have poor headlight connections where the conduit connection is able to move about, rather than having a really good fix, I looked past the numerous discussions regarding the three contacts being too...

                                I need to get back into selling on ebay. I have been using the Windows app that eBay provides for free.

                                I am selling a wide variety of what is laying around my house. So I am not constantly listing the same thing. I have Windows and MacBook computers. I use an Iphone.

                                Can people please share their experiences with both phone Apps and PC based apps.

                                Thinking out loud here, can some member give us the name of a legit agency that is accepting money to aid in what is needed due to the fires.

                                Mitch how hard would it be to set up a paypal account for a month or two to collect our donations and send them down under?

                                Just thinking out loud.

                                Reproduction vs. original 1928 Headlamp Socket Assemblies
                                by Steve Plucker
                                Have been in contact with three major Model A Repro parts houses and have asked about the 1928 Headlamp Socket Assemblies and all tell me that they are poor quality and would not spend the money on them (but they still offer them for sale).

                                OK...That being said, just what is it that makes them the "poor quality" for which they say?

                                Many times I have purchased Model A items on EBay. Generally, I only purchase if I need the item, the price is reasonable, and the description (pictures and narrative) gives me some assurance of the quality. Last night I was a seller, listing Model A side curtains (appeared to have never been used) from my stash and new side curtain rods (original style, unopened packaging) for $475 including shipping....

                                i went to NAPA and purchased a Stant 180* thermostat. Got home and tested it before installation. It would not open even in boiling water. Took it back and noticed it was made in China. Got my money back and said I wanted one made in US and was told that no-one made them in us anymore. All from China. I said, I'll check somewhere else. I went to OReilly's and found a (Murray Plus + # 3838 ) 180* Thermostat...
