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: stromberg 97 metal fatigue?

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.

i am guessing the axle is solid mounted to the...

Re: 1925 alignment issues

Either the radiator is sitting a touch higher than normal or the body mounts at the front are slightly saggy.
I put a couple of fender washers between my body mounts to correct a similar fit problem.

Re: Engines stuck

If you're using a lowering wedge on the bracket for a speedster it might not matter about being TT that much. I think the bolt spacing was the same, just the angle was different.
If you're in the...
