Re: I have a question

If you had collected WW1 and WW2 uniforms and militaria like I did for many years, you would have soon noticed how small men were then-the vast majority of uniforms that were actually worn seem to be...

Re: How do you move a T with a stuck engine and stuck transmission bands and or brake

You really NEED the original-type wheel puller when removing the rear wheels. It screws onto the fine threads of the outer surface of the hub, and the center bolt pushes against the axle. With...

Re: Rusty fuel tank.

I'll be sending my tank to Brent for that treatment sooner or later, when I get around to pulling it out of my truck. It's a late '31 tank, and that horizontal outlet fills up right away with...
