Re: What is the Axle shaft diameter ?

Hello Les, That is a great idea. I have a few hundred good Hyatt bearings of varying measurements and at this time they have limited or specific applications. We could then juggle the bearings based on their specs, to match inside or outside placements. Also, if they were made longer as well. Thank ...

Re: What do you use to heat your (freezing) shop for your T?

You CO detector should be 4-5 feet off the floor. Most CO & smoke alarms have a lifespan of 7 to 10 years and if not hard wired, replace the batteries every year. A detector with a lithium battery or a hard-wired smoke detector can last 10 years, at which time you would just replace the whole unit....

Re: What do you use to heat your (freezing) shop for your T?

Like Les, I have a glycol in floor gas fired heat system. My shop is seriously insulated. I can work in a shirt and it has no cold corners. If I open the door for a while, the heat is recovered quickly afterward because everything is at temperature. Radiant floor heat saves money.

David, As I embark on refurbishing the many motors and hundreds of parts I have, I am absolutely amazed that no one has shown an appreciation for what you are offering. I hope you can hold out. We need to change this hobby from cheap to fair.

Re: Question on the radiator mounting kit plate nut

Putting both type of nuts in the kit will give an option of which you want to use. Make it a combo kit. Probably would cost a bit more but not all that much. That would solve any issue. I bought a kit for my 24 Coupe and it had an info sheet in it. Adding the info about both styles that can used in...

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...

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...
