I wouldn't even dust it off for it's first trip to town. Wipe the windows off just enough to see out of. Cool old Ford!

That's pretty much what I've done cleaned the windshield and dove it around the block a couple 3 times its running better the more little trips I make with it  Thanks to all

Hi Cat you are an optimist guy thinking the sun is going to shine here in MN :D How about some pictures I took yesterday?  Put a couple more miles on it and its running better all the time need to put some new packing in the water pump seal nut will probably do that tomorrow and have ins on it now so will go for a longer drive. I'll take some more tomorrow you can see I haven't disturbed the dust too much

Better keep it inside. You don't find 25 year old dust laying around just everywhere.

Hi yep just sneaked in a drive between down pours, went for a quick drive this morning but it was sprinkling just enough that it was getting hard to see before I got back to the shop there is no hose on the wiper assy or wiper blade. Was over to a friends shop this afternoon he's working on a 26 Model T open cap pickup it belongs to a fellow classmate of mine  and its a nice looking pickup

Hi had the A out for a couple of drives today got about a mile from the shop and going up a hill when it started to miss and backfire thur the carb quickly turned around and headed back to the shop it ran great when not under a heavy load I was pretty sure it wasn't a mixture problem so I changed the inline fuel filter went for another test drive it was better but still had a small hick up then I got to thinking the fuel level in the tank might be to low to provide enough flow when going up hill requiring more power and gas so I added a few gallon of gas went for another drive ran great so I ended up putting about 9 / 10 mile on it this afternoon, also it was leak coolant from the water pump shaft the Model "A" has a gland nut with graphite packing in the nut that can be tightened to seal the shaft well I tightened the nut the leak would slow then after running some it would leak more and more so I backed the nut off and tried installing new graphite seal that was fun finally I got the nut to thread back on tightened it after a couple of running's and tightening its down to just a drip now and then.
