Re: Model T governor fan

Thank you all so much!! After seeing your great photos I believe my fan is a sears, but with homemade weights that I think are timer wheels! : )
I did manage to get the governor working but the photos will help a lot. Thanks again

Model T governor fan

Hello fellow T owners!! I have a model t powerplant and bought a governor fan for it. Now the fan is missing everything except the flyweights. Does anyone have a picture of a complete one so i can perhaps fabricate new parts?

carb needle adjustment

I read that the needle valve adjustment should be at about one to two turns open when running. The needle adjustment on my car only opens just over a half turn from closed! Carb was rebuild a couple years ago. Runs great pulling hills but idles a little rough. Is there a way to make it open more? Th...

Re: Rough idle

It ran great with the new timer and rebuilt coils for the last thousand miles, now idles rough but runs great under load.

Rough idle

The 1919 roadster runs great, pulls hills no problem. Now for some reason, it idles rough. What to check first? It has a new Anderson timer and rebuilt coils.

Exhaust leak at nut

Noticed today that exhaust is coming out from under the nut ( between the pipe and nut ) that connects the manifold to the pipe. The nut is tight. What can I do?

Re: engine braking

HeyNorm. No RuckstelL or auxiliary brakes. Could it be possible the bands were not getting enough oil and the bands were binding? He used a screen. He did make an adjustment on the brake band.

engine braking

My son was driving his 1919 Roadster today and when going down a steep hill he would engine brake while in high gear. This time he felt the car really slow down like there was something going on. He put the car in neutral and it still felt like he was engine braking! He pulled over and couldn't find...

Tube valve stem cut off

Besides low air pressure, what would cause a valve stem to shear? Tire pressure was 60 psi. The stem was still perfectly straight and stuck in the rim! I am using a flapper also, could that be a problem? Have about 2000 miles on tire and tube.

A Whiteman... I have tried moving the shifter, it moves into both positions with a sharp "snap" but still the wheels do not move.

Re: Looked at a TT today

Steve... all i mean by that is that the engine still has the 2-piece valves and most likely hasn't been rebuilt, same goes for the trans. Well they sure look like they haven't been rebuilt.

Hello everyone, so i went to take a closer look at the TT today. I discovered that it is equipped with a 2 speed Ruxtull. To further search for the cause of the problem at hand, i removed the oil fill plug in the axle and told a friend of mine to turn the crank. I observed the driveshaft turning but...

Looked at a TT today

I looked at a TT today and it was in a very tight space, but I was able to turn the crank. It was easy to turn and when I put it in high or stepped on the peddle for low, the rear wheels did not turn! Could the drive shaft be disconnected? Could it be a broken crank? Next weekend I will be able to t...

stalls when fully retarted and on mag

For whatever reason, the car runs great on mag except when you stop and fully retard the spark! Then it stalls. When on battery, it will stay running with the spark fully retarded. This is something that just started. What do I check? Merry Christmas and thanks!
