What CCA does an A4 require?

I was thinking to remove the starting battery and just use one of these if something goes haywire.

I tried to get the shaft coupling apart, but couldn't get a pipe wrench to hold it. Every time I tried the wrench just swiveled and fell off.

Yes, planning on replacing the sleeve. The shaft coupling doesn't look like it's too badly rusted together.

Hi;

I'm getting quite a bit of oil being flung around the shaft coupling. Looks like the coupling/rear seal need replacement.

If the coil gets hot the engine will shut down. The standard install is with the coil hanging on a bolt on the block where it gets very hot.

O'Reilly's did another search and came up with an 11 micron model - MGD 33095. It's a little physically smaller, but seemed to work ok.

My carb seems to be leaking gas. After servicing it now 3 times and checking the float, replacing the needle valve and seat, it's still leaking.
