Re: PayPal and eBay getting a dicorce

You can pay for and print a shipping label at USPS.com. I think you can measure and weigh the package and it will provide the pricing. If it is off, they will bill you the difference. Ask me how I...

Re: Coronavirus vs "A" Drive

The biggest issues are lack of testing and overwhelming the medical system. Add to that the lack of protective gear and we have a first class mess on our hands. There are glimmers of hope that the...

Re: Make a model T a little more safe

Thanks for your good work during your career Big Job.



I would disagree about seat belts, however. You want to stay in the car if you can. What percentage of crashes are rollovers? 2.1% ...

Re: Anecdotes About Stalling on Train Tracks in the Model "A" Era

It seems that stalling on the track wouldn't happen very often, but maybe. More likely no gates and people not paying attention.

Two stories I have. One, my grandparents were waiting at a...

Re: Bratton's & Covid-19

I ordered from them a week ago and got prompt service. I guess to us, if anything is an essential service, it is parts for our Model As! ;-)

Re: Parts from suppliers

I ordered from Bratton's, too. 2nd day delivery, but I live in MD. I was pleased that shipping was only $7.99 rather than the flat rate price provided. I just had carb parts, so they fit in an...

Re: Wd-40

I saw that same test. We always used Liquid Wrench 40 years ago. When I saw this test, it made me reconsider.


I think we used WD-40 in my son's potato cannon.

Re: Howell's Sheeeet Metal Scam

Were Jaxon rims available for Model Ts?

My 24 T coupe has Jaxon rims and lugs on it. Some folks have suggested that maybe my car has Chevrolet wheels and rims on it, as Jaxon rims were available for Chevys. It's important to me because I...

Re: Conventional oil and Synthetic oil

I use Mobil 1 in my Model A's, like I use in everything I have. Probably an unnecessary expense, but it's a better oil, so why not?

Re: A Interesting 1934 Ford Brochure I Found over 20 years Ago

Henry Ford apparently thought hot air heaters were better than hot water heaters, so he continued to develop them and make them available for his cars.

Re: 1933 essex terraplane. John Dillinger's favorite car

Re: Zenith Carb Float Valves

FWIW, I had bad luck with Viton tipped valves. I wasn't patient enough to keep trying them until I found one that worked. 66% failure rate isn't very good.
