Re: Spare tire needed 1923 Depot Hack

Welcome aboard ! Now you went & done it !

Normally a hack or p/u would have a side mounted spare assuming the driver's door didn't open or some accessory (hard to come by) under the bed mounts like a modern p/u.

Re: What is this ??

Are you attempting to drill out the pin holding the low pedal notch ?

You might strongly consider the consequences of what IS going to happen if'n you don't repair the problem as most folks here are offering sound advice !!!

Re: Top Interchangeability.

The '26 - '27 open car top irons have a defined curve at the body attachment point - what that purpose is, I can't tell you but it's the best way to determine which is the correct year that they were made for.

Repairable for sure - brushes are mucked up and the brush end is sporting the original Babbitt bushing.

Re: Rocky Mountain brakes

Scott - the installation & adjustment docs. that come with the repro R.M. brakes from Bud say to adjust them just as Don has them. The instructions also state to attempt to set a clearance of approx. .030 all around which involves slight manipulation of ALL the mounting & hardware points !

Re: Education on Warford transmissiion needed

Thanks for the reply Shane - reason I asked was I rebuilt the late model C.I. Warford w/pto capability in my Gramps' TT back in the late 80's and that particular bearing I purchased from an old Model T guy in Seattle - cost me like $60 and I thought I was getting scalped !
