  • 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!

              More tire info requested
              by Bobm90
              In response to my "wandering" and tow in questions, several people have suggested switching to Radial tires, here's my question, what size, should I go for wider than stock? What brand? Does anyone make a white wall, I like the look and just hate to switch to Black but the car must be safe and drivable. Were whites were available as a option back in 1930?

              You guys / gals that have been around the VFF for a while know that I like to share my thoughts with you. I do this because this VFF, is your forum as much as it is mine. I have received a lot of requests from these so called closet modifiers about starting a separate forum for them to share ideas. These closet folks are on other forums meshing in with the general population but are limited in what...

              What I did today
              by BNCHIEF
              Today I attended a model t ford clinic, where we discussed the kc warford transmissions and others as well as various brakes etc. We had about 150 folks here and to my surprise quite a few younger folks as well. They got to talking about tours and how to get other clubs involved when the opportunity presented itself I promoted the vff I told them about how this forum is set up many talked about...

              Why this new forum?
              by glentre
              Didn't know this forum existed and found it quite by accident so I joined to see what it's all about. I've been a member on the barn for almost four years with some 325 posts so I'm not a newbee. My handle there is Lona.

              ​​​​​​Seems like a shame to have two forums on the same subject. While I've read many very generalized comments on why this new site was formed, it seems...
