Racing Model Ts sometimes had the magnets removed along with the coil ring and then used a distributor ignition.

Re: Rear Spring Removal

It can be done without special tools, but you should try the longer bolt first.

Re: 23 T oil change suprise

You will need whatever tools it takes to pull things apart, and you will need soldering skills. It will become apparent what else you might need once you can see and assess the damage.

Re: Distributer

I think we both were asking for more info. Location is sometimes a factor also.

Re: Charging System Will Not Work Under A Load

As I said before try some LED lighting for daytime running lights.

Re: 23 T oil change suprise

It is time to pull things apart and do a proper repair. The mag won't be working now anyway.

Re: Rebuilt transmission noise

Unavailable video, but the only thing turning is the input shaft, cluster, and its bearings.

Re: Charging System Will Not Work Under A Load

There have been voltage regulators built into cut-out cans. You might check for something similar. Or just keep the lights off for some of your driving.

Re: Charging System Will Not Work Under A Load

It sounds like your generator is performing as intended. You shouldn't show any charge with lights on. Maybe just change the fog light bulbs to LEDs.

Re: 23 T oil change suprise

That damage can happen if some nut or other ferrous metal gets dropped in the transmission and hangs onto the magnets, or if the magnets get too close to the coils.

Re: Remove sludge from bottom of gas tank

Re: 1928 Touring Seats

Have you attempted to set them in place and see how they fit? I think each spring will fit best in its respective area. Look up Snyder's Ford parts, maybe you can see some drawings of their spring...
