Re: Model T rear axle nut

There is no torque spec for anything on a Model T Ford. No torque wrenches existed at the time. You tighten the nut as tight as you dare and then install a cotter pin.

Re: Is this a Model T ignition switch?

It might work for a Model T but it was for some other brand of car originally.

Re: No Power to Starter

It can cause problems if it's backwards like the ammeter would read backwards and if it has a modern generator cutout it might fry that so don't do that.


Do disassemble every place that the...

Re: No Power to Starter

You don't have a short. You have an open. Likely a dirty connection at one of the terminals.

Re: Model T Sparkplugs

We used to have a Champion spark plug cleaner / tester. It used a fine glass bead. Unfortunately after cleaning the porcelains of the plugs were etched which caused them to foul almost immediately. ...

Re: Timing, piston position...

With my old knees it is a lot better to just pull a spark plug. That way I can see when both valves are closed. I use a plastic stir stick from Micky D's on top of the piston. That way I can check it...

Re: Tire removal-1914 Roadster

It's very easy if you leave the wheels on the car. Removing the wheels from the car makes it a 2 or 3 man job. Here's how:

Re: Model T hubs

I've changed many hubs. It never required removing any spokes.

Re: new coils...

They may have been made when they were being made properly. I have a half dozen KW coils with manufacture dates in the 1940's. I sent them to Ron the Coilman and he was able to rebuild them and they...

Re: new coils...

The new ones have less wire in them so they are not as powerful as original Ford coils. They are fine for an electric fence though. Also they come with the wrong value capacitors so if you do buy...

Re: early ford development water cooled vs air cooled

Re: Model T hubs

You only need spoke press if you are changing spokes.


To change a wheel from rear to front you only need to change the hub. Take out the bolts. Put the wheel on a 5 gallon bucket with the...

Re: Carrier side play

That's what I do. A 5/16" (hole size) thick brass large area washer fits with no noticeable play but allows the axles and differential to operate properly.

Re: Removing rear wheels off axle taper

I find it also helps to have both wheels off the ground even if only one is to be removed.

Re: Wood front wheel fellows on a 1919 Ford?

Re: Wood front wheel fellows on a 1919 Ford?

This (wood felloe wheels) is normal for any Model T with non - demountable wheels from 1909 - 1926. The style of the wood felloe varied over the years, as did the spoke design.

Re: Model t center door 1915-value?

It's going to be from free to maybe $45,000 for the best one on earth. Restoring one might cost from $25,000 if you started with one in great condition that didn't need upholstery or a top to...
