Advice for Planning an Extended Multi-day Trip Prior to the day of departure all vehicles going on the trip must be checked at a Tech Day. A small-parts kit should be assembled. A First-Aid kit should be assembled. Distribute to all participants a check-list of major parts needed for the trip and determine who will be bringing each item. Make sure parts are included for either a Zenith or Tillotson carburetor as well as modern and original points and condenser Prepare and distribute a cue sheet in advance of the trip including distances between major towns and lodging accommodations with addresses and phone numbers. Participants should assume responsibility for making their reservation at the designated hotels in advance of the trip. Participants should assume responsibility for reviewing the cue sheet and obtaining maps or a GPS device to plot the trip prior to leaving. Distances projected to be traveled each day should not exceed 200 miles. Number of days for a trip should not exceed 10 days. Walkie Talkie communication is essential. All devices must be checked before the trip and set on the best channel for clear transmission. All travelers must practice using their Walkie Talkie with other participants before the trip to make sure they all “Talkie” to one another. As a backup for communication, make sure all participants have one another’s cell phone numbers Every participant should have a reflective safety vest to wear during likely-to-occur roadside seminars. Every car should have, in addition to a fire extinguisher, one or more safety flares.
Due to limited storage space in most "A's: On tours the club will survey its members and
assemble as many of these parts as possible. Each member may be asked, if space permits, to
carrying some of these spare parts.
The club has begun assembling a "Tour Parts Box" which will have some of the items you would
never expect to need such as nuts, bolts, small gaskets, and wire. As we experience different
needs, parts will be added. This box will be maintained by the club president and then issued to a Tour Leader as trips are scheduled.
Below is a list of tools and parts suggested to be carried on tours. Our club has prepared an emergency spares kit to take on our tours with many of the below items.
