Re: early ford development water cooled vs air cooled

Franklin was one of the best selling cars in the days before assembly lines. All of their cars were air cooled. They had a reputation of being trouble free.

Ford built a few prototypes in the...

Re: Model T hubs

You only need spoke press if you are changing spokes.


To change a wheel from rear to front you only need to change the hub. Take out the bolts. Put the wheel on a 5 gallon bucket with the...

Re: Carrier side play

That's what I do. A 5/16" (hole size) thick brass large area washer fits with no noticeable play but allows the axles and differential to operate properly.


The fiber washers are always gone...

Re: Removing rear wheels off axle taper

I find it also helps to have both wheels off the ground even if only one is to be removed.

Re: Wood front wheel fellows on a 1919 Ford?

Demountable wheels were first available in 1919 if your Model T had generator, battery and starter. Regular Model T's without the fancy electrical gizmos came with non - demountable wheels as always....

Re: Wood front wheel fellows on a 1919 Ford?

This (wood felloe wheels) is normal for any Model T with non - demountable wheels from 1909 - 1926. The style of the wood felloe varied over the years, as did the spoke design.

Re: Model t center door 1915-value?

If you are willing to accept an ersatz version then the price will fall dramatically. The correct 1915 parts are unique to this car and easy to identify. But if your standard is it passes muster at...

Re: model T clock?

Model T's did not have optional clocks after about 1910. Phinney Walker clocks were the brand used by Stewart and Clarke in those days. A Stewart & Clarke clock would have been mounted in a brass...

Re: Model t center door 1915-value?

It's going to be from free to maybe $45,000 for the best one on earth. Restoring one might cost from $25,000 if you started with one in great condition that didn't need upholstery or a top to...

Re: power disconnect switch

The one shown in the first post is of low quality and a sure way to get a lot of trouble in your electrical system. Anything that clamps onto the battery cable is bad. That connection needs to be...

Re: Make a model T a little more safe

Re: installing new valves

I like to use non - adjustable pushrods for several reasons. First, they are easier to adjust properly. Second, they never go out of adjustment. Third, they are significantly less expensive.

Re: Low to High Gear

This is caused by either driver technique or a weak clutch spring, or both.

Re: #1 cylinder not doing it's share

I would get one valve fit and then have all the others ground the same amount. Mike is talking about if he rebuilds the engine with new valve seats and valves from his vendor. No telling what you...

Re: Model year dates?

This particular roadster has outside door handles which to me says 1929 and no question about that. My suspicion is that the engine block may be a replacement. Or it simply was not made into a car...

Re: Model year dates?

The reason I am asking is there is a fellow trying to sell what he calls a "1928" roadster. Engine block has a casting date that equals late October 1928. The car seems to be a 1929 from all the...

Re: Oil for model a+ t

Agree completely. Any oil you can buy today is 1000 times better than oils of the 1920's - 1930's. ZDDP was first used as an oil additive in the mid - 1950's because of higher valve spring pressures...

Model year dates?

When was each model year begun and ended for the Model A? Is there a definitive serial number for each model year's beginning and end?

Re: Old Skool with many accessory parts

Nice photo! Appears to be an early front axle with one piece spindles. The intake is dog legged aluminum type that went away at the same time as open valve engines in mid 1911 model year. So my guess...
