Re: Hard crank on my 1909 touring.

Is the engine still out of the car ?
If so , put a wrench on the square of the U joint & turn it , & see if everything in the rear end turns freely .

Re: Improved Akron-Hed sanity check

I like what I see .
Interesting valve layout, side to side , rather than front to back like all the other overheads ! .
It will be interesting to see how it performs .

Re: Old Photo- 1909 Model T

It's a 1910, the front body mount has 3 bolts.
The front mount changed from 2 bolts to 3 bolts in early 1910 .

Re: 1911 fender fit

For a good fender fit, you have to start with good running board alignment. If the running board brackets are bent too low that will pull the running boards closer in , which pulls the tail of the front fender in & makes the bills point out . "Fun Projects " has a good diagram of the correct running...

I've had this problem with powder coated clincher rims.
Once I roughed up the painted surface of the rim so the tire could get some grip, the problem was solved.

Re: Steering Wheel Year?

I think you have a 1909 / 10 spider. They were slightly smaller than the 1911 & later steering wheels
Also, yours has two keyways , which makes me think it is an original .
The reproductions I've seen have only one keyway .
