Re: Low to High Gear

This is caused by either driver technique or a weak clutch spring, or both.

Re: #1 cylinder not doing it's share

I would get one valve fit and then have all the others ground the same amount. Mike is talking about if he rebuilds the engine with new valve seats and valves from his vendor. No telling what you...

Re: Transmission w/no output

It's some sort of massive failure that is not going to be repairable with the engine in the car. Time to remove the engine / transmission and disassemble to see what happened. Warfords are known to...

Re: Model year dates?

This particular roadster has outside door handles which to me says 1929 and no question about that. My suspicion is that the engine block may be a replacement. Or it simply was not made into a car...

Re: Model year dates?

The reason I am asking is there is a fellow trying to sell what he calls a "1928" roadster. Engine block has a casting date that equals late October 1928. The car seems to be a 1929 from all the...

Re: Oil for model a+ t

Agree completely. Any oil you can buy today is 1000 times better than oils of the 1920's - 1930's. ZDDP was first used as an oil additive in the mid - 1950's because of higher valve spring pressures...

Model year dates?

When was each model year begun and ended for the Model A? Is there a definitive serial number for each model year's beginning and end?

Re: Model T Sparkplugs

The Autolite 3095 and Champion F11 plugs are 1/2" pipe thread spark plugs made to service a lot of older applications that use such a spark plug. They are much colder heat range than Champion X or...

Re: Old Skool with many accessory parts

Nice photo! Appears to be an early front axle with one piece spindles. The intake is dog legged aluminum type that went away at the same time as open valve engines in mid 1911 model year. So my guess...

Re: Model T hotrod

Personally I think way too many Model T coupes have already been wrecked by hot rodders. Look on eBay - they sell for about 1/10 what it cost to build one. Why not buy one there and save 90% of your...

Re: 27

Ford recommended cleaning the timer with gasoline every 500 miles, then pack it with Vaseline petroleum jelly. After that they expected the owner to oil the timer liberally every tank of gas. There...

Re: L-4 Kingston carburetor seat

I have not figured out why the copper washer is there. I toss them in the trash.

Re: kingston l4 carburaters

The throttle arm from a late NH is about the only part that will interchange with an L4.

Re: towing to start a 1917 T

Many of the "New Commutators" sold by the vendors are poorly made. Do you still have the original one? You need to have 2+ gallons of fuel in the car. Set the carburetor one turn from closed on the...

Re: High compression head question

The math is quite simple. You need the volume of the combustion chamber with the piston at TDC. You need the volume of the combustion chamber + the cylinder's swept area with the piston at BDC. Add...

Re: Body Identification

There were at least two different styles of 1917 couplet body used on the Model T. The one in your photo is later, from 1919 - 1922 I believe based on what I think is a wooden firewall seen in one...

Re: Metal trunk floor paint

Do it like Ford did - put couple coats of cheap black paint on it and then install it.

Re: Model T Safety Additions
