Re: MTFCA hacked?

Recently I was getting all sorts of spam emails wanting me to open links. Once I stopped trying to open the MTFCA site the spam totally stopped. Coincidence??

Re: Headlights & tailights - pre 1915

Re: Carby

It looks like a Kingston Model L as used around 1913 on Model T Fords. It has had the mounting holes cut out into slots to likely mount it on some other engine.

Re: Carby

Note the QLD address. Anyone who has dodged a roo on the road will definitely know what a Carby is.

Burned for sure but not a model T. It is a much larger car & has fenders from around 1910. The caption says it was the result of looking for an acetylene leak with a lighted match. Obviously...

Re: front dust cap removal...

It sounds like you are working on 26/27 wire wheel hubs. The cap has a rim around the outside that goes against the hub. If you gently work a thin screwdriver or putty knife in the joint the cap...
