~Car is for sale. $15,000 firm. Titled and Located in Central Illinois. PM me for details~
So the first day off the trailer we took out the car and it died on us leaving us stranded. Started troubleshooting with the builder and found out it wasn't getting spark. Tracing wires we found that the ballast resistor wire had been pulled out of the spade connector. Simple fix so we're back up and running. More videos to come.

oil change (shocking) after sitting for 50 years Ford Model A
I bought a 1930 Model A 5 window coupe all original except for a dropped
axle, a Mallory dual point distributor, some dual electrode spark plugs,
four blade radiator fan, 15" steel reversed center wheels with slicks and a
lawnmower fuel tank bolted to the dash (reasons to believe it was a hot
rod) it wouldn't turn over when I got it so I took the plugs out and poured
some Mistory oil in the holes and let it sit for a few weeks, I turned it
back n forth till I was able to give it a few full turns, checked the oil
level, put some gas in it, hooked up a battery and it turned over fine with
the starter but no fire, pulled out the distributor to find a home made
shaft extention that wasn't long enough so I rebuilt the distributor and
made a new shaft and rebuilt the carb and now it fired up! I called Adrian
to come over and check it out, he said it sounds good but don't try driving
it untill you change the oil, I drove it up and down the alley sinse the
oil look to be ok an at the correct level, called him again to let him know
how it went and the first thing he asked was, did you change the oil? so I
got to work took the drain plug out and oil dribbled out no matter what i
did it wouldn't drain out so I took the oil pan out and found the oil caked
at the bottom of the pan, lesson learned.... Always pull the oil pan OFF to
make sure you don't run your newly acquired Old motor with a pan full of
crud, I hope this helps,,, more videos of this model A to come so stay
tunned! thanks for whatching.
thanks for the great advice Adrian.
Hot Rod Delivery!
Coupe came today. Took some video taking it off the trailer. Car came from
Colorado so it's not tuned properly just yet for my elevation in the
midwest. All the gas evaporated out of the carb as well so we had to roll
the car off the flatbed. Went for dinner, came back and got her fired up
and put to bed for the night. More tomfoolery tomorrow.
