  • Hand Held Stewart Warner Tachometer

    I have a hand held AC tachometer and find it a useful tool. This looks like a good price for a SW tach.

    These read in either direction and were often used by farmers to set the correct speed on some farm implements.
    I bought mine at a farm auction in the late 70's.

      Here's an AC Delco handheld tach with buy it now for $40. I find these to come in handy once in a while, and they rear the RPM in either direction of rotation.

      Points cleaning.
      by DaWizard
      I was perusing through my book of Service Bulletins again today and stumbled across something rather interesting.

      Henry suggested that when the points seemed to be dirty or corroded or in some way in need of a cleaning, that a whetstone be used to burnish the pads. Well, I was thinking to myself, since most of the folk I know that own a Model A might not even know what a whetstone is,

      Model A Spring Shackle (Hanger) Bushing Drive Tool Recommendation?
      by Ayyy
      I'll be replacing the rear spring hangers and bushings soon. I would like to get a driver tool to get the bushings in and out. I see that Brattons and Snyders carry them, but there's no info, so I assume they're imports.

      Does someone have a source for a USA-made bushing drive tool? Hoping its actually tool steel...

      Just for your reference-

      My new tool
      by BNCHIEF
      Here are a few pics of my welders just bought a new tig welder it is a Hobart 165i, I bought it over a comparable Miller which was $300 more and had stick welding capability(which I did not need or want). Hobart makes a nice machine but then it is actually made by Miller anyway. Following are some pics of the cart I bought and totally reworked to make it usable( your shocked I know.) .

      Overdrive or 4 speed transmission or ring and pinion
      by davew
      winter has set in and thinking of options. Would like to bump my speed from 45 to maybe 55. Would also like to do some longer distance touring. So-being new to the model A I'm looking at the four speed transmission conversions. People in Texas and California seem to have good ones and would look clean inside There is the mitchell overdrive but puts another shifter inside. But all kinds of gears. ...

      A good Model A tool
      by Mitch
      This is a great tool that every Model A owner needs, to efficiently and easily fish out your broken bendix parts from the fly wheel housing. It has a durable / bendable rod that is 24" long, with a cap on the end which prevents the sides from magnetizing to things when your fishing it down. The cap is held in place by the magnet and then pushes up once it bottoms out. For coming off the snap...

      Tool Throwing
      by CM2
      Used to work a CAT spread with a fella named Myron,a great guy and a good mechanic who stuttered...He was a tool thrower when he got pissed. I learned to duck when he stopped stuttering,he only stopped stuttering when he was mad as hell. I used to sneak around his work area and say "MMMMMyron,hahahahand me wrench...what ever he had in his hand at the time came flying..Anyway,post up the moments...

      Re-engined value opinions?
      by Russ Cochiolo
      About 40% of the A's in the Sierra Chapter, Fresno/Clovis CA, of M.A.F.C.A. have had engines replaced with Pintos (and others) to get AC and higher cruising speeds with better fuel mileage. Most of them, if'n you look past the 16's with radials and hydraulic brakes, look "original". Yesterday I looked at a 1930 Blindback that fits this description. Without the modifications it would be...
