Re: Is the MTFCA forum down?

The whole internet is down more than it's up.
Thing is, i found botnet DDoS attacks are on the rise.

One device on my own network was hijacked by the botnet & sending garbage pings to amazon...

Re: This AWFUL Bug...Explained!

Question Would there be any interest in a programmable electronic points replacer?

I know lots of you (including myself) like the simplicity of the original system. So i'd design something that was about 5 minutes work to swap back to how the model A should be.

Re: Model A 350/350 Virus

I hate it.
I find it funny that if i pull up next to a bunch of them, more people seem interested in looking at my flathead 4. Haha.
Only people that don't like it are the 'puffy jackets that...

Re: No Power to Starter

The only real damage you can do in purely stock form from a short is if the power from the battery drains through the magneto. Can de-magnetize things.

Re: 1923 Canadian Tudor

Replacing those bushes isn't that hard. The anti-rattle springs are kind of a 'get by' method.

Re: Model A rear in Model T

That sounds like a lot of work, or 'ruining parts' in my mind.

I have used model A hubs on a T.
The easiest way is to find a "junk hub' that has a worn out or cracked bearing race and cut it off....

Re: Valve Cover

I ran with no valve cover for a while so you should be fine.
While it'd be cool to set up a slow-motion camera to catch the misfire & compare valve lift with a frame of normal fire, it'd be huge...

Re: Dealing with the heirs on '32 parts ect.

Re: Model T Sparkplugs

From memory i used one in an old workshop on my motorbike spark plug.
It removed a glazing and the carbon would settle into the ceramic much faster.
Maybe the grit was too course.

Re: Kangaroo fuel.

If it smooths out after idling a while, fuel flow maybe be restricted. Check pipes & fittings. (have seen thread tape partly blocking fuel line produce these symptoms)

Re: Bad steering new shaft

In my country, any welds on steering or brake parts is totally illegal. This case is no exception.

Re: Model T hubs

If you move every second spoke with a wooden mallet, then all the other spokes, you can walk the hubs out easier. Or so i have done.

Re: driveshaft advice for a one of a kind TT

A worn out U-joint for a model A might provide the right internal spline for the gearbox. If you need the flex, you could use the whole u-joint.
