The Tool Box 
By John Firth


The purpose of this column is for members who are either restoring a Model A or are working on issues that need correcting or updating to share their experiences and progress with the club.  But I won’t know what you are doing unless you tell me about it, so give me a call!

Here’s what’s going on in April, 2023: 



(Left) Mike McKey had a heating problem with his rebuilt engine.  No compression in number 4 cylinder.  Any suggestions? Answer:  valves were adjusted too tight. 



Tom Bormuth will be reassembling his 1930 Tudor when the body comes back from the painter.



(Left) Yesterday Todd Calvert started up the engine he rebuilt and it runs and sounds great! 



I bought a 1930 Roadster Pickup body and bed to put together so I can get another Model A back on the road.

If you have updates, call me at 541-474-1516.  And if you need help with something,  as long as you are a member in good standing of Henry’s Lady, you can call me for a Busted Knuckles consultation.

Keep turning those wrenches!
