Re: Is this radiator worth recoring?

The guys are right. It's really shot. A re-core isn't an answer & will accomplish nothing aside from the fact that I think no rad shop will touch it.

Re: Rear brake lights

Lang's and Snyder's have "period" lights. Anything you buy will have to be converted for LED use.

Re: Valve Cover

Listen. If you simply must pull the head for no reason at least do the following; take a dry/wet compression test. Nothing will indicate the engines condition better than that. Since you seem bent on...

Re: Valve Cover

DO NOT... I repeat DO NOT pull the head!!! There's no reason on earth to do that and it will give you absolutely no answers + cost time and $. First off running with the needle valve closed indicates...

Re: Engines stuck

Try to eliminate some stuff. For instance getting the rear wheels off the ground & making sure its in neutral. Just suggesting because it might not be that the engine's stuck but that a drive line...

Re: Blown Head Gasket

You've pretty much got some good answers. They do seem (sometimes) to just go on their own but there's usually a reason. Good clean surfaces, clean the holes out, (important !), and re-torque after...

Re: Keeping a Model T running

No doubt about it (in my opinion) there's more to keeping a T going than an A. It is a fun car to drive in the right situations but not many of those exist on todays roads with today's drivers. Get...

Re: selling my model Ts

There are a number of free old/collector car selling sites. Just look around a bit. Old Ride .com is one.

Re: MTFCofA forum

First off I'll say I prefer this site to the new MTFCA Forum BUT an update was definitely needed so it is what it is. Getting an avitar was a heck of a problem for me but posting pictures is a breeze...

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

The avitar was a bit of a problem as it had to be re-sized however posting pics in topics is a snap as it re-sizes itself apparently.

Re: how many 1908 model Ts exist today?

The correct answer to your question is none because there's no such thing as a 1908 Model T. 1909 to 1927. However Tmodel's info is correct.

Re: Model T ability by era question

As stated performance doesn't differ much. I will say though that at 6' 3" and having had a Tudor & a Touring that there's more room in the open car + the Tudor was a'27 with a cowl tank and I think...

Re: Model T Tool Question

Not every body in this hobby is cool. That wrench is usually under $10 at flea markets here in N.J. Aside from the open end wrenches it is the most common with a few slight variations. It's mostly...

Re: What to do with this old '27 T?

Not a parts car for sure. E-Bay or the other sites classifieds. The car will definitely sell.

Re: Looking at Model T Ford

Touring is probably your best bet (or a runabout 2 seater). Closed cars are tight. I'm 6' 2" and had a '27 Tudor. Just couldn't get comfortable. Maybe it was the up front tank but I sold it & got a...

Re: Axle straightness, from another perspective.

Man I guess it really just depends on the what, where & how much. If spring mounts & camber & toe (and a few other items) aren't affected well that's that. Plus if you didn't check you wouldn't know...

Re: What we learned...Today

100% for adjustable lifters. The reasons seem obvious. My quite old Craftsman valve adjusting wrenches work very well thank you !

Re: Model T as a daily driver

Sorry but Redmodelt has it right. There's a world of difference between the T and the A. The T is basically a wagon with a motor in it and the A is an automobile.

Good advice. Probably the best places (maybe the only places) where you'll definitely find, at least, interested lookers. You certainly can't beat the price either. There are many other free sites...
