Re: Cotter pins tips

The early automobile pins are a bit harder to come buy or make as the Eye is round and the ends are the same length. Making them much harder to get a hold of to bend over. On the newer pins that most are use to that are in a tight spot I take a flat blade screw driver and cut a slot in the end of it...

Re: Sandblasting Equipment

I would recommend a pressure fed blast cabinet. You will use much less air and a much better and faster result. You will only have one hose with a nozzle on it that makes it easier to handle and get into tight areas than the most common siphon type cabinets.

Re: Rebuild engine and transmission

John, When your Father posted on the form I listened to what he said! He sure seemed to know the correct and best way to rebuild a T and had the experience to back it up. He surely is missed!

Re: Kingston 5 Ball for 1909

I have ran a Five Ball for over twenty years on my 1910 and 1911 and have worked well for me. Rebuilt them with a Brass float and new needle and seat.

Re: Color for my 1910 Touring

I didn't realize Darel that your car was March 8th as one of my 1910s was March 10th that was very close for that time period.

Multiple coils

I find it interesting that Henry used multiple coils (one for each cyl) on the T and how the manufacturers are using multiple coils today. Not having to have the Hi tension path threw moving parts as a rotor and cap. I also hope that most people on the forum understand how simple a coil is and how i...

Re: Old Photo-Spooner WI

Drove threw Spooner yesterday and still a nice little town. A lot of ice fishing and snow mobiling this time of the year going on. Much busier in the summer with all the lake activities.
