  • What is the most useful tip or tips for you on the VFF

    For me Tom Wesenbergs tip on cleaning the block and radiator after using evaporust and his pictures I have used his method on at least three different cars a great tip.

    I must also mention HL Chauvin's and others on radial tires as well. saved me time money and mistakes.

        I think my most memorable tip was after my $90 tow bill for a bad not so vented gas cap.
        Someone on here told me to go loosen the gas cap and try to start it!

          The internet has made it (almost too) accessible to sift through the minefield of others experiences and potential techniques, and to save time and money. Those contributors who can provide photos and diagrams for the layperson to understand are helpful. This site format excels at that.. and offers experiences with many of the vendors who help keep the A's running.

            I find that anything Tom Wesenberg writes is worth reading, and I even save some of it. I am still waiting for him to make me a coil tester

              Funny you mention that, because I was thinking of making another one. Unfortunately the electronics surplus store where I bought the relay (and many other parts) was torn down two years ago. Last week I looked on ebay for another 6 volt relay like the one I used, but couldn't find anything. I did find some 5 volt relays with contacts rated at only 4 amps, so when they come in I'll give them a try.

              Just got these all done on my car followed H.L. Chauvins advice to the letter and what he had to say about them this is hands down the best thing i have done to date it feels like I added power steering to the car. The difference in ride and handling is like day and night. Not only that they look better than the whitewalls which means I have crossed over to the dark side with Mitch. If anyone...

              Tip #1

              When soldering SPLICED wires, hold the iron UNDER the wire & apply solder to the TOP!
              Most common soldering problem is NOT enough HEAT !
              Use ONLY Rosin Core Solder!---Acid Core Solder turns it GREEN!---GREEN is only for MONEY!

              I am no mechanic but can usually perform many repairs if I am given detailed instructions. There is a wealth of information on the forum and many knowledgeable individuals willing to share their experience and knowledge but sometimes you have to read multiple posts from a variety of posters to gain the complete picture.

              I recently worked on fixing my leaking 2 tooth steering box using...

              Info on radiators
              by Ken Parker
              Since Woody's radiator is running hotter than it should and phatttting out the cap I am researching new radiators. Can someone explain the differences in the available choices. Bergs. Brassworks. Brattons/Snyders HD 8 fin per inch. Etc. This will be a 30-31 radiator. I need the technical part, not testimonials of how great they are. ken

              by 1930 Closed Cab PU
              Am having difficulty locating Mitch's string on newsletter tips. Trying to find the tip on lubrication of the front spring through the radiator shell crank hole, and peruse/review the entire string.

              Where is the string found?

              Would be nice if it was a sticky when selecting the Model A Forum.
