Re: Original Canadian 1912 Engine Casting numbers

Here's photos from today of my Sept/Oct '13 Canadian touring block and head. Never had anything cast into either one of them except the Ford logo. There's NO casting dates anywhere. I've looked really hard to find any evidence the motor ever had casting dates on it but it does not.

Re: CANADIAN OR US BUILT 1913 TOURING?

My 1913 Canadian touring is very complete and fairly original. I have all it's documentation since new. There are no Robertson screws on it. However, the '15 I had did! It also has four doors :)

Re: Taking out and re-installing Hassler front shocks on my '13

Finally finished making the '13's front axle assembly correct & safe. Replaced welded spring perch, repaired axle where the welds hit it and carefully hid the repair as to only alter the original axle enough to make it right. Replaced front spring to correct tapered leaf spring assembly. Tightened u...

Re: O.T. how did you get your sweetie to support your T addiction?

I proposed to my wife in 2011 while driving my 1905 Queen with the premise I was going to teach her to drive it. The 1915 and the 1913 model T just fell into place very shortly and easily :lol: Wedding in 2012 was fun too as you can see :D

Re: Taking out and re-installing Hassler front shocks on my '13

Well, I haven't decided whether the Hasslers are going back on or not. I'm leaning towards a yes, but I'm not 100% certain yet. They've been on the car for most of it's existence. The figure eight shackles are very worn and need to be either built up and turned in the lathe, or I look for a new pair...

Taking out and re-installing Hassler front shocks on my '13

I'm in the process of removing my front axle assembly to install a correct 1913 tapered front spring and also to repair a nasty spring perch that had damage and was welded partially to the axle. What I need help with before I proceed is this: I've never dealt with the Hassler shocks. It seems to me ...

Re: 13 Engine in

Larry, would my Sept/Oct. 1912 built 1913 have had the big plate too? My car had the original firewall replaced long ago. I currently have the small plate on the car as a reproduction. I have the big plate.

Slightly OT - I cannot login to MTFCA using Google Chrome

As the title says, no matter what I do, I cannot login using Google Chrome as my web browser. If I try to login with an incorrect password, the site knows it's wrong and tells me, but using the right password, nothing happens, I just get the main page, but not logged in. Also, I cannot send any emai...

Re: WTB: Front Axle Spring Perch for 1913 Passenger Side

Hi Allan, Yes, if you're looking at the front of the car from out in front of the car, and looking at the left side, that's the spring perch I need. To add to the confusion, my car has Hassler shocks on it so in order to use them, both the spring perches must be turned around 180 degrees, and then t...

WTB: Front Axle Spring Perch for 1913 Passenger Side

Title says it all, looking for a correct one that is in decent shape. This is the one with the wishbone hole above the axle. Many thanks in advance!
