Re: A Procedure for Stopping a Model T Engine

When I shut off my T I put the brake lever forward to relieve pressure on the spring and clutch pack, recently went to start it and forgot to pull the brake lever back----guess what --- got a free start and almost went through to garage door.

I have a great nephew who is one of those firefighters. Last I heard he was in the Columbia River area. A while back he was near Flagstaff. I have nothing but tremendous respect for this young man.
