Re: best engine oil for stock 17 model T

I think Ford said to change it every 500 miles.

Re: TT differential to a T defferential

Most TT's come from the factory with 7:1 rear. That equals 17 mph.

5:1 gears will give an easy 25 mph, and if you run high rpm will give you 35.

Re: A good start & for sale

The link says "SOLD" so I guess it is worth $750 to someone!

I think it worth more due to the value of parts which are getting hard to find. If I were building a TT I would buy it for $750 in a...

Re: Engine Rebuilders

These old trucks can be REALLY dangerous. If you will split the shipping cost you can give it to me and I will take good care of it.

Re: Engine Rebuilders

You won't do better than Ross Lilliker in College Station Tx for an engine rebuilder. Probably a 6 hour drive from Alabamer, but well worth it.

Re: Sounding like a Harley....

Mine came off several times, even when I triple nutted it. It has to do with heat and vibration. I ended up at Tractor Supply and got a tractor muffler with the correct size pipe.

It will come...

Re: Tire question

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...

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

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.
