Re: Looking at Model T Ford

Touring is probably your best bet (or a runabout 2 seater). Closed cars are tight. I'm 6' 2" and had a '27 Tudor. Just couldn't get comfortable. Maybe it was the up front tank but I sold it & got a...

Re: Axle straightness, from another perspective.

Man I guess it really just depends on the what, where & how much. If spring mounts & camber & toe (and a few other items) aren't affected well that's that. Plus if you didn't check you wouldn't know...

Re: What we learned...Today

Re: Model T as a daily driver

Sorry but Redmodelt has it right. There's a world of difference between the T and the A. The T is basically a wagon with a motor in it and the A is an automobile.

Re: Best place to sell '24

Good advice. Probably the best places (maybe the only places) where you'll definitely find, at least, interested lookers. You certainly can't beat the price either. There are many other free sites...

Re: front dust cap removal...

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: 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

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: 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: 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...
