Re: Your thoughts please.

I believe Les has the ticket for an "add-on" belt drive modern starter - installs without having to replace the T hogshead, etc. - I remember talking with Les a number of years ago regarding the same for a customer who wasn't able to hand start his '09 ! Could be a profitable endeavor Les !

Re: Your thoughts please.

Bud - do you have an aversion to changing a few parts to install an electric start ? Our '14 Touring was purchased from the family who I did just that for, as the owner was in his early 80's & had Parkinson's to boot ! I removed the engine, disassembled it and replaced the flywheel with the later st...

Re: Installing Oilers

There are two sizes - the larger one is for the spindle & tie rod bolts - the smaller one is for the spring perches & springs - perhaps you're attempting to install the incorrect oiler for your project ?

Early cars used 2 bushings - later to '25 used one - '26 - '27 used a different size - what year bracket you replacing ?

Re: Ford Faithful for an outside oil line?

Andre - the oil line should exit the oiler & go under the pipe and yes, I run original Ford Faithful Oiler's on all 5 of our T's - built in debris screen and with the topography here in the Pacific Northwest, a little lubrication insurance to the front of the engine is good ! Only drawback to the F....

The Winfield carburetor also has that type of "ball & spring" tensioner on them which most are stuck !

Re: RAJO head questions

Let us remember that "milling" & "surfacing" are normally two different operations - I wouldn't install any cylinder head without having it "kissed" on a Blanchard grinder.

Re: Is this a "dummy" flywheel ring gear for a non-starter car?

That is quite an interesting feature - the "waffle" stamping of the brass screws is definitely Ford factory work - I've torn down too many T power plants to keep count & have never seen that ring on one !
