Re: wire wheels

Old rusty ones are gold at garden shops. They make good culvert screens Too! That is only a suggestion for damaged unusable wheels.

Re: Trans trouble question ?

Well I know at least 2 gears aren't damaged from it. Will it go forward in any gear?

Re: Flush oil/anti-freeze mix from crankcase?

The oil will float on top of the GOOP. Let it set a few days and drain the oil without running first. Then just leave a pan under it and let it drip for a day or so till dry.

Re: Towing a big truck

I never heard about pulling axles to tow 20 miles. What is your concern?

Re: Towing a big truck

If you tow it flat the tires are getting the same use!

Re: Towing a big truck

Lots of work to go 20 miles! I think you could put all that effort into driving it the 20 miles.

Re: Generator output too high.

Is the third brush in the right position? What happens when it is in another position?

Re: Sooty Spark Plugs ????

Yes too much for slow or hilly travel but not too much speeding down the highway if the timing is correct. Adjust as needed!

Re: Sooty Spark Plugs ????

If it runs OK with the GAV all the way closed after warm up, I would run it that way for a while and recheck the plugs. The gap needs to be set a bit wider also.

Re: clutch adjust

Thanks, the spring length reference was in Murray Fahnestock's The Model T Ford owner book. I will adjust and see what happens. Trying to get it ready for the tours from the Village Green in Cottage...

clutch adjust

I have just started my car for the first drive. A rebuilt trans installed that has the turbo 400 clutch. It apparently needs adjustment as it barely engages high gear. In reading the Model T Ford...

Re: Locating dimple on timing gear

That is what I think also. It is very easy to turn the engine with the crank when the plugs are out.

Re: Two Model A questions.

My thought is you can easily protect the engine from overheating by being aware and keeping the car running properly, and maybe relocating or removing the front plate. A flying rock is much harder to...

Re: Two Model A questions.

How many windshields get rock chips? I think a stone guard is cheap insurance and could be painted satin black if it presents as too glitzy. A small rock can ruin a great tour and the wallet.

Re: Locating dimple on timing gear

You are correct. I use my thumb over the plug hole to know when it is coming up to TDC.

Adjust for less consumption. 4oz per 10 gallons or approximately 200 miles.
