Re: Any good aftermarket headlights ???

Did I miss something?

Although you can't adjust the position of the bulb in the reflector, I thought you could aim the headlamps up/down & left/right by loosening the big nut at the bottom.

Re: MTFCofA forum

It now works with both browsers.
They are working hard to get it going.

The volume of posts seem to have dropped - let's hope people get active again.

Re: MTFCofA forum

Re: Just a head up, the Ford Model T Club of America..

The only problem I had was putting the new forum in my favorites and removing the old one.
It was easy once I figured it out.

Re: Special tools

The T and Ford flathead vehicles use most of the same tools.

The special T tools depend on what you plan to do.
Hub and rear sleeve puller would be high on my T list.

Re: UHaul open car hauler for a Model T?

Re: LED tail lights

I put a set of 12 volt LED brake lights on the back of my Town Sedan that were meant for a trailer.

Re: Best fuel and exhaust system for power

Re: One thing I've learned as a new A owner....
