Re: Rear brake lights

Are you keeping your car period correct? If so my solution won't help. I like period correct, and it is great on a seldom driven car. I drive my cars a lot and safety is the overriding factor for...

Re: 1926 Ford Model T Battery

My first T had not run for 10 years when I got it. I bought a new 6V battery from Advance Auto, then replaced the cables and starter switch. The starter wouldn't crank. So I removed the Bendix and...

a new thread showing progress and techniques with lots of pictures would be nice. And would give you a record of what you did.

Please give it some...

Re: Model T as a daily driver

And a good thread it is!

I would disagree with, " should only be driven in rural areas where the traffic is light and the speed limits are slow." Here in central VA rural areas tend to have...

Re: Model T as a daily driver

Safety is relative.

A Model T is not as safe as a modern car that has air bags, seatbelts, structural body strength, anti-lock braking, etc. etc. Neither is a motorcycle. Safety is up to the...

Re: Buying a Model T

I think prices tend to be soft in the fall as people decide they do not want to garage their car for the winter.

And prices tend to be soft overall because so many older people own several T's...

Re: Wood spoke VS wire spoke rims

Another factor is how fast you want to go. Over 35 requires wheels that are true, no wobble, or vibration sets in. The faster you go, the worse it gets. Wire spokes have to be straight.

Re: Ford Faithful Oiler...

These are really good oilers. I suggest that you use the magnet with them.

I have two. The line follows the same rout on both. On one I used the copper tubing sent with the oiler and it was...

Re: TT build

The firewall and radiator are in, no leaks! It runs very smoothly with the Stromberg OF now that I have it adjusted.

I am proud of the engine, it looks good with oversize intake, OF, and Z head. ...

Re: UHaul open car hauler for a Model T?

You had better allow at least 30 seconds to remove the hood! You have to lift the front center at the radiator, then pull it forward 1/2", then lift it clear. No bolts etc. to remove, its weight...

Re: UHaul open car hauler for a Model T?

This is good advice, and the reasoning makes it easier to understand.

Ironic that a load of parts from a dismantled T could be loaded on any trailer, but if together they equal a car and have...

Re: UHaul open car hauler for a Model T?

Don't tell UHaul you are carrying a car body.

I called them about renting a open trailer to carry my 1200 lb. speedster, they said I had to have a trailer rated to haul an auto. And they said...

Re: TT build

The steering box mounts on the bottom of the frame, but also has a bolt that goes through the mount, through a wood block, and then through the side of the frame. I think the wood block helps keep...

Re: TT build

Fire wall in.
Water pump in.


I haven't found much time to work on it, but the radiator should go in soon. Then I can listen to her run anytime!

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

I recommend a '26 '27 touring. The '26 '27's had stronger cranks and supports from the side engine mounts to the back of the hogshead. It has the larger...

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

I just got into T's about four years ago. I strongly suggest that you find a local club, they tend to be very friendly and enthusiastic. Then ride in as many different T's as possible.
