Re: Model T governor fan

Harold,
Here is a copy of a fairly common fan governor. I have one like this so I saved the info.
It was posted here in the past, but I don't recall by whom.
Just another example of the great help here on MTFCA.
Hope it helps

Re: Even the Experienced Make Bad Decisions

Hank, Glad to hear all is well. Those fenders just have "character" for the next generation. I had a similar experience with Thelma Tae, i had just gotten her on the road after a very prolonged sleep. I was quickly approaching a "T" intersection when as I began to throttle down the Universal transmi...

Re: Fordson Assistance

Joe, I have attached a couple of scans. When you mentioned your vaporizer was a coil, it got me thinking. Kingston MD's have a large rectangular block that has a maze cast in it for the hotplate. Earlier Holly's have the coil. Again hope these help, Kevin PS John as far as valves, try the Fordson Ho...

Re: Fordson Assistance

Joe, The small reservoir at the bottom of the vaporizer plate has a needle and seat that is controlled by a small rectangular float. That bowl fills with fuel and then is drawn in small amounts up the through the vaporizer plate to the mixer. If that float and needle and seat cant control the fuel i...

Re: Fordson Assistance

Jim, Fordson's can be a bit troublesome to start. My view is it has to do with the design of the vaporizer, the fuel leaves the tank goes down to the level of the float bowl, and then has to drawn up through the vaporizer plates to the air intake and then back down to the intake manifold. If the tra...

Re: Oil pump

Just enjoying the read, and it got me thinking. Has anyone ever made a pump similar to the Ford 8N, it is integral with the front main cap. Pretty small and is driven off the crank gear. I am sure you would have to run a sump, but it works well for lot's of tractors. Thanks for the indulgence, Kevin...

Re: How do you separate two transmission drums?

Marvin,
As was mentioned it should just slide apart. Check the teeth on the gear sometimes they get a bit of a burr on them and that will keep them from coming apart. Hope that makes sense.
Best of luck,
Kevin

Re: Duplex Improved Carburetor

Gene,
That looks a bit like a Simmons Super Power carb. I'll bet if you look at the tag it was made by Simmons.
Try a google search "Mtfca forum Simmons" and you should be able to get the info you are looking for,
Best of Luck,

Ok, I have no connection to this ad, it is on e-bay by Mark Fremiller from Model T Haven, but what the heck is this engine. If it is a go fast engine someone surely has history on it as someone spent a lot of time engineering this thing, So what is the story????? Kevin https://www.ebay.com/itm/Model...
