Plugs #1 and #4 more fouled

Notoriously these two plugs show more fouling while #2 and #3 will appear clean. I understand this is due to the fact the two end cylinders run cooler because of their 3-side exposure, while the center ones run hotter because more heat builds up between those two cylinders as a result of their confi...

Re: Magneto cuts out and in

Thanks, everyone. When I get at it I will start w/ testing the magneto output under various inclinations. That, unfortunately, makes sense as the first incident occurred when climbing up that rocky, rutted >5% road that was bad enough that my door kept unlatching--something that never happened befor...

Magneto cuts out and in

I took a 35-mile drive today and the last half a mile was up a steep, rutted and rocky road when my 26 Coupe quit. Flipping the key over to the battery it started immediately, but when switched back to mag it quit again. I managed to get to our destination on battery and when starting for home after...

Re: How to mount a dash cam

Don, you might be able to get around the windscreen glass problem by mounting the device from the front top bow just outboard of the windscreen. It would be a little more vulnerable out there, but so are many mirrors, and they survive. If I were to do this on my roadster, it would be under the rear...

How to mount a dash cam

I've thought that recording videos of some of our tours would create some great memorabilia and my new cell phone does a nice job of recording time-lapse videos, but I'm stymied by how to mount it on a Model T. A camera needs to be relatively tight to the glass for best clarity or you'll get side re...

Viewing old forum

I know the old archives are no longer supported, but I hope their current presentation can be corrected. After logging in to the New Forum and then trying to look at old threads, no matter which year I select--2018, 2017, 2016, 2015--any word search defaults to 2015 only. Presuming this can be corre...

Transport 26 Coupe from WI top MT

In the dissolution of a family estate, there is a 26 Coupe of my granddad's located in Wisconsin rightfully belonging to my nephew. He's at a stage in life where he has neither space nor the assets to perform any restoration at this time and I offered to try to retrieve it and "get it running" for h...

Moving seat back in 26 Coupe

There have been discussions about moving the seat back in Model T coupes but renovation details are sketchy. While some larger drivers feel comfortable enough, I feel cramped, especially on longer tours that might cover several hundred miles over a few days on tertiary mountain roads. My co-owner so...
