Re: Gas tank and fuel line question

Do you have those tank dimensions right? Agree it sounds like a lawn mower tank and there's plenty around in both metal and plastic. Probably doesn't pay to invest in cleaning as something that small...

Re: 1925 model t question

Could be valve guides as suggested could also be blow-by from the rings. Pull the valve cover and make sure the drain holes are open. An oil build-up in the gallery could cause some smoke. Are you...

Re: Is it valve job time?

While you're on the low side it's not tremendously bad. The thing is when you add oil and the pressure goes up it usually indicates ring/cylinder wear as the oil seals the rings for a few cranks....

Re: Getting a title with a bull of sale

Looking for a title co, right off? Your first step should be getting in contact with your states DMV on line. There should be a Q & A section on titling a car without letting any info go on your...

Re: Model T Distributor

The guys are right. If the mag's OK, (even if it's not and your running on a battery), it'd be cheaper to get the coil system working. There's no power/performance gain by switching. Nothing against...

Re: Problems titling a speedster

I'm going to stick my neck way out here Jb and guess you told them you built it. From parts no less. If there's one thing that sets them off, and I don't care what State it is, it's a home built car....

Re: Steering woes

as suggested a front end checkout is in order. king pins, tie rod ends, pitman arm, wheel bearings, ect. That's the "easy" stuff. then move on to the steering wheel gears & case.

Re: cleaning carbon/head gasket...

Excellent! Taking a comp test before pulling the head. You've been at this for a bit I expect as NOBODY ever does it. Copper gasket suggested above is probably best and the advice about cleaning out...

Re: low speed shimmy

Is it a front wheel shimmy or a general vibrating? I ask because the two things 1: a front end shimmy and 2: vibrating only when hitting the brake don't relate. That is they've got nothing to do with...

Re: My "new" '27 Model T Sedan... what to do?

If it's a rod you're after a T, which is basically a wagon with a motor in, it might not make you happy. Their slow and quirky and the quirky bit seems to have attracted your attention. It's unlike...

Re: Header and intake combo question

Re: 14 speedster wiring question

Can't be that difficult for your car. A "normal" T with starter & mag. is only 7 or so wires. Don't think it's necessary to buy a harness because you'll not be using a number of the wires any way. Of...

Re: Experience with wooden bands

I've never read of someone that's used them that's complained about them. Normally glowing reports. There is some business about soaking them in ATF I believe. You'll have to wait for further posters...

Re: My new acquisition

Can't see if it's stamped. Is that a steel Ford bed? Extra nice if it is.

Re: drive methods to save bands

My 2 cents: Starting off you'll be slipping the low band a bit because just like a clutch you can't fully engage it until you begin to move. Once moving you advance the gas and step down on the low...

Re: reverse "weak"

It's probably the adjustment as suggested. You say you have a good neutral. Just to be sure try moving the forward speed pedal with your foot. It might be a bit off and isn't completely in neut. Do...

Re: Hard to start 26 Tudor

'26. Do you have a vaporizer carb on it? They can be quite a chore at times. Without question go over the electrics as Hammer suggests. If all's well there it's got to be fuel.

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

The sleds are your best bet for quick action. Beyond that it gets complicated if you've got no T savvy. If all's well (not stuck) putting the emergency brake in the vertical position puts the car in...

Re: radius rod ball retainer/cap

The APCO, though pricier than the others is great for a ball that's worn a bit and most are. Langs # 2736 APC. You have the wrong studs so the mounting bolt set is going to be a must. Langs # 2742S....

Re: My new t

Very nice & complete. Some items need work like the wiring & interior but it's a cool truck. Get the oil fill cap back on there. Noticed there's another T back there. Touring?
