Re: Best cooling fan for best cooling?

Your side engine pans need to be installed too. They are part of the cooling system.

Re: Lee White has passed 😖

He was the man that taught me everything I know about Model A's. I had the pleasure of knowing him the last three years. He will be greatly missed.

Re: Rear spring lubrication

Slip-Plate. Get the brush on kind. Two-Three coats per side.
When it's dried, put it all back together. Then give it the unit a coat of black paint.

Thanks, that is what I would basically be doing. It's nice to know you just did it and it worked out.

Re: UHaul open car hauler for a Model T?

Opps, sorry... I meant the entire car. Changed the original post.

The car is about an hour and a half away.

Would it be ok to use an open trailer to get the car home?

I am not against an electric starter, from what I've read so far they came out in 1919. So maybe I...

Re: 37 year old wanting to buy a Model T!

I'd appreciate the check on the garage door, thanks.
I won't be looking for a project. Probably restored or mechanical restored and ready to drive the heck out of.
