Re: Do you look at the parts wanted forum?

I also watch the wanted ads and try to sell there before I post in the for sale or put
it on ebay.

ways for me.

Re: Looking for electric conversion for kerosene lights.

You can modify the burner and use a generic tail light socket that pushes into the hole that’s left after removing the burner.

Re: Pulling engine and transmission...can I put both in cradle?

The transmission will hang on the back, no problem. You don’t need to support it.
The engine weighs enough to keep it on the cradle with out support.
I do it all the time.

Re: Model t center door 1915-value?

I don't think he has a car he's looking at, I think he just wants to know what the range is

Re: Model t center door 1915-value?

They made less than 1000 True 1915 Center Door Sedans. They are a one year only Model
and have some very different features than the later ones. They are almost a prototype
And are very rare.

Re: Over Drive

Yes on all the above, plus if you live in an area with hills its great to overdrive 2nd gear
going thru the twisty stuff.
Also add a high compression head at the same time, you will love your car.

Re: The Old Opportunity Motor

Do you own a boat that needs an anchor? I like the torque plate idea although it needs to be thicker than 3/4’s of an inch to work.

Re: Running on 3 1/2

Just for the heck of it, pull the valve cover and see if you have a broken valve spring.

Re: What is the price of a rebuilt flathead??

What Rod is describing sounds like a freshen up not a complete rebuild. A $1500 to $2200
Motor at best.
We are out in California and it costs $6500 to build a stock Flathead with all good parts....
