Re: 21" tires for a driver

I’ve had those Lucas 21s on my T for about 7 years now. I like em. Only compliant is that they turn brown after a few hours of UV exposure outside. I thought they were all made in Vietnam though, not USA

Re: trade my '28 A coupe for another T?

I had my 22 T, sold it and bought a 1930 Model A. Didn’t like the way the seats hurt and turned around sold it and bought back my T. Of course I had to pay more to get it back! Moral of the story is don’t sell cars just keep them all and build a bigger garage.

Re: Am I right to be upset? Children in old cars

Boy, talk about out of hand, CHARLIE. You’re right, I guess I need to do locked up. This post thread is off the rails with insidious comments such as that. In the meantime, I’ll continue letting the entire neighborhood and families enjoy riding along in the car, along safe and quiet roads, while the...

Re: IR Thermometer Readings on head and radiator

Hey folks- just to clarify. The engine rebuild is about two years old or so- I just haven’t put very many miles on it, I drive it a few times a month, just not far! Maybe a few miles at a time.

IR Thermometer Readings on head and radiator

what are your IR Temperature readings for your cars? I have a newly rebuilt motor, but I suspect my radiator has begun to bite the dust. My timing is ok, carb settings ok, but the motor meter displays pretty hot after a mile or two of driving at low speeds around my neighborhood. My head readings wi...

Re: Have you ever made a stupid mistake?

3 years ago and went to change the old split rim on my touring with a freshly painted rim and new tire. Took it off the car, wheeled it downstairs and started cranking away with the spreader. I forgot to let the air out of the tires and that thing exploded when the rim let go. It blew up with enough...

1926/27 Front Spring Dimensions

hi all, I recently bought a set of front T springs from a swap meet, and I assumed they are 1926/27 because they had 8 leafs. There isn't much in the encyclopedia for measurements, can someone tell me what they measure for spring width and length? Also, these are not drilled for oilers, so I'm not s...
