Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

My gear shift lever spring scummed to age and moisture. I'm sure I could buy a replacement or some spring that would work. Not wanting to leave the shop I thought I would see what I could devise. It...

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

I wanted to clean up a spare generator for the '35. It was reluctant to come apart. After soaking it with penetrating oil and then soaking it in water it was still stuck. I thought maybe a gentle...

Re: Painted My First Car (well, parts of one!)

It looks like you got the idea alright. It gets easier each time. (and more expensive).

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

Before...

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

Well I rebuilt a later carburetor and tested it and the rebuilt starter and switch. All worked fine. I also found out the oil pump works well as I had put the oil filter gasket in crooked dumped a...

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

Thanks. As for beaters, this is and will remain one. I had visions of making it as nice as Don's but that won't happen. The panel was rolled in the 40s. The frame was badly bent so I will mount it on...

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

Well, I've had the vehicle for about 50 years but didn't have a workable motor until a Street Rodder friend gave me one he took out of a running '36 so he could put something more modern in. That...

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

As for the ugly green thing, I put a battery in it and tested the new switch. Not only does it work but after pouring a little gas down the throats the engine fired. I guess you all know that thrill....

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

While I'm at it I have questions about three holes in the intake manifold. I'm guessing the threaded one might be for a vacuum wiper. The other two don't seem to go to threads. Are these for manifold...

Re: The Ugly Green Thing ('35 Panel Delivery)

I have been delinquent in doing anything on the panel for sometime until last month. I managed to put new head gaskets in and now have the engine in the frame and much is hooked up. While waiting for...

Re: Are these Model T door latches?

They look 1920s but I have never seen that type on a Model T.
I hope someone recognizes them for you.

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

I like it. It is easy to use and has some nice features. The old format was fine for me and I wasn't looking forward to change but is has worked out well in my opinion.

Re: model T running board aprons ?

I would say they are 23-25. The two slotted holes that bolt to the running board were not until then. The MTFCA Ford Encyclopedia states "Same as earlier boards but drilled differently." I think that...

Re: Ford TT bus, bodied in Russia. Sverdlovsk, 1927

That is an interesting Bus. The rear tires look to be Goodyear diamond treads.
It was the state of the art in 1927 but would seem slow and cold these days.
Thanks for sharing the photo.

Re: nedd help, 1915 new rad. not fit

I had a similar problem with my 1909. Both repro fenders and radiator. It was disappointing. I still am not sure where the problem was.

Re: identify year of this block

It is possible that there is an eighth digit which would make it a July 1925 block. Does it have provision at the front for a generator?

Re: Interesting item on eBay

Good point. Do you suppose he didn't want to disturb the wrapping? When I unwrap new old stock spark plugs I can never get them back in the box the same way.

Re: Interesting item on eBay
