Re: FJ - Legendary Ed Archer Sits For A Visit

Great interview. I met Ed for the first time when he came to West Bend, Wisconsin to promote Edy's ice cream with his Model T ice cream truck in 1988 at the grand opening of the Sentry grocery store. Thanks for the memories, Ed!

Re: snowbird parts info

William,
Here is a drawing showing the parts of the Snowbird. The plate you are referring to is trapezoidal and replaces the bar under the front spring clamp. It should be easy to have one laser cut from 1/2" steel. I would love to see pictures of your Model T snow machine.

Re: Speedo setting up

I don't have speedometer experience, but it makes sense that the small gear would turn 1/18th faster with one less tooth, which would give you about 2 mph higher reading at 35 mph, which would be closer to your GPS reading of 38 mph.

Re: Wanted medal strips that hide the nails

I think the old "Tinkerin Tip" for those metal strips is to purchase a metal tape measure with the correct width tape, cut it to the proper lengths, and paint them black.
