Re: I Miss the Ol' Timers

I shared a quite long conversation with Wally Szumowski very recently. He is now 87 and still lives in his home but his dear wife is in intensive care yet may be able to join him again with help. Having been here on the forum for many years I have gotten to know a lot of us as camaraderie and charac...

Re: FS, Differential case and spider gear shaft

Please Dave,
The spider shaft shows significant pitting and something else. That piece looks un-useable. What are the measurements of the gear case ID?

Re: Drive shafts

In the early 1980's I collected a lot of Model T parts. My findings are that the Canadian production was using tapered torque tubes, not stepped, in the later years. Was this yet another cost saving decision? I would welcome any other perspectives as I may have learned a lot about Model T's but I ha...

It was cut off. Easy to replace but first check the rails for correctness and straighten before replacement.

Re: 1915 runabout: wrong door?

Being a body man, I disagree with bending hinges. The hinges were made in a jig and the bodies were also. All cars are built from the firewall back. First you set the cowl and firewall vertical and diagonal on a level frame (datum line). Then attach the front door to fit. Then you fit the body to ma...

Re: Muffler mounting.

Robert, Loosen the pipe at the manifold and move it slightly aside. You must mount the muffler in the frame and then WITHOUT the pipe in place, use a 2X4 or some wood to force the muffler to the correct fore/aft position by bending the mount brackets. Then swing the pipe beside the inlet to see wher...

Re: 26-27 Roadster Body Questions

I wanted to edit my post but was timed out. I apologize if I sounded "oh so knowledgeable" about fitting the gas tank or that what I am doing is what others should do. I also should have said my trunk panel was riveted to my sub frame. In the case of a rusted or damaged body I would remove the cowl ...

Re: 26-27 Roadster Body Questions

I hope to shed some light on this subject as the 26/27 Roadster is my passion. I have a very unique '27 Roadster that I got in Alberta in 1978. Being an obsessed auto body man I wanted to gain access to all of the inner panels to be able to repair the skin properly so I drilled out ALL of the rivets...

Re: Tire wear and Toe in adjustment

I often wonder how many T owners/builders/restorers have actually removed the perches, installed the gauges and determined the REAL condition/alignment of their axles before moving on to wondering why things shake or tires wear. This is in my opinion absolutely paramount to making your car safe. I r...

Lacquer is the only paint that is soluble in it's own solvents. Lacquer can theoretically be sprayed over lacquer and it w...
