The Model T transmission pan is part of the engine pan.
The flywheel is an integral part of the oiling system. Best not to muss with Henry's masterpiece there. :D

Re: Where do these people come from? My laugh for the day.

After twenty years of living with a mechanic, my wife is more knowledgeable than some about cars.
When we met, if she spoke of a car and you asked her what kind..."It was a green one...":rolleyes:

Re: 37 year old wanting to buy a Model T!

The windshield doesn't fold back on 22-27, 21 and prior only.
I will have to check, but I believe my door is 6.5' and my 24 fits topless.

Re: Engine Trouble

Doesn't really sound like a bearing, did you check the fan and belt.
I wouldn't think you could hear an exhaust leak much sitting still without a load.
