Re: I am 14 and I bought a 1926 T. Now what?...

I picked up my Model T with my dad when I was 9. That was 59 years ago! I still remember sitting in the passenger seat and seeing the street below because there were no floor boards. We pulled the car home with my dad's 1940 Ford pickup. By the the way, you are not supposed to pull a Model T. It is ...

Re: Rear Spring U-bolts

Let's add another variable to this. What if you have a 26-27 Touring or Sedan with a (goose neck) spare tire carrier? I have heard that the spring hanger bars are half as thick as the other models in order to screw the nut above the hole to insert the cotter key. I believe the order on a 26-27 Touri...

Re: Three to One Gears

I have three to one gears with a ruckstel in my 27 roadster and I put 100 miles on it in the Colorado mountains on Saturday. I gained 2,700 feet from my house in Arvada to Conifer, CO 8,277 ft. I had to use ruckstel on the steep grades, but my car will pull them at 30 - 35 mph in high gear low rucks...

Re: Tragedy struck. Help, please ?

Last time I bought PVC primer and glue it came in a metal can. I took the brush off and it fit on my running board utility cans for gas, oil and water. Give it a try!

Auto Theft - Signal System Key?

Does anyone know if the keys fit all units? I have a really nice lock with no key. I took it to a locksmith and they kept it for 2 weeks and said they couldn't pick the lock or make a key. They were Millinials. Anyone with wisdom know where I can get a key or have one made?

Re: OLD PHOTO - Down home

I can relate to what you are saying about a library burning down when someone dies. My grandmother was born in 1899 and I would sit around for hours and ask her questions about the old days. I think that is why I am so enamored with the 20s. My parents were born in the mid 20s and rode in their fath...

Identify This Part - Model T?

Can anyone identify these 4 parts, the year and if they are Model T? They are 2.75 inches long not counting the threads. They are black now but have some brass plating underneath. I think they might be prop nuts for a top.

Re: Pan Straightening Table

Thanks for all the information. I had no idea they could cost that much. I'll just use the services of a member of the club that has one. As long as I don't break another crank I should be good for a while.
