Re: driveshaft advice for a one of a kind TT

A worn out U-joint for a model A might provide the right internal spline for the gearbox. If you need the flex, you could use the whole u-joint.

i am guessing the axle is solid mounted to the...

Re: Apologizes to the purist...

I have not used that particular product but i once used something that looked like split tubing to cover the edge of a rough rim. That was held on partly with tire pressure so i guess it was not a...

Re: Warning - Sophisticated Scammer Trolling the Want Adds

Suddenly i have many people offering me brake drums and i'm not sure how to respond to it.

I know, right? Why would anyone want to pay money every month for something they'll never use?

Re: members that have collected other car besides ford

Old british cars. Popular models though.
If i could sell my american cars i'd go back to restoring them as the parts don't need converting to RHD.
But i can't sell them either...

Re: doodlebug

To register a vintage tractor, for me at least, it is only needed to have a light that serves as a tail light, in red, rear facing. A while light cast from that onto the license plate, 2 headlights,...

Re: stop lights

I have entertained the idea of putting LED light strips in a clear plastic tube and running that just around the edge of the headlight glass rim, behind the glass, barely visible. Essentially...

Re: 1925 alignment issues

Either the radiator is sitting a touch higher than normal or the body mounts at the front are slightly saggy.
I put a couple of fender washers between my body mounts to correct a similar fit problem.

Re: Engines stuck

If you're using a lowering wedge on the bracket for a speedster it might not matter about being TT that much. I think the bolt spacing was the same, just the angle was different.
If you're in the...

Re: Never rent your car to the studios

Should have let them try. They might have either learnt it, or relented & let you drive it.

Re: Engines stuck

Looks 26-27 to me.
Normally i just end up pushing the pistons all the way out of the bores & give them a hone. Easier than trying to force all 4 to move at once.

Looks like you have the...

Re: Make a model T a little more safe

For a T, "rocky mountain" or "AC" brakes or something.
You can also add a stoplight.



I wouldn't want seatbelts in one. Nobody really wants to be tied to an upside down assembly of metal and...

Re: That "Opportunity Knocks" Engine

Drilling the ends & driving in soft wire or lead should be ideal for prepping it for JB weld.

You could try to solder it with normal electrical solder. Not brazing or even silver solder, i'd...

Re: Never rent your car to the studios

One day shoots where you get to be on set & sometimes drive the cars aren't so bad. Can even be sort of fun.
But i have heard horror stories about what they do to cars they use long term.

Re: The Terry Burtz 5 main bearing engine blocks are back on track.

Laser melted powder method versus bound particles.

Re: What did I just buy?

You can't title it as a farm vehicle? Not sure tractors had VINs. I've never seen one with one.

Re: What did I just buy?

The best part about a doodlebug is some places let you register them on the road.
Sure it's about as practical as driving a tractor. But that's the fun of it.

Re: Convert 1921 Kerosene tail light to electric

Re: High compression head vs cooling

Depends if your head is alloy or iron.

"Alloy is for boiling water.
Iron is for power."

It was told to me that the alloy heads conduct the heat into the water faster, which is true. Hence...

Re: Do You Carry a Container of Gas in your Trunk?

I do sometimes, but i'm from a time when gas stations were so rare that people were running around with 3 fuel tanks replacing seats in their cars at one stage.
