Cold weather storage tips please

IMG_4528.JPG Well, it's been a fun year for me and Woodrow (the name I gave my newly restored T). Three parades, 3 shows and one Best Classic award. There's another cruise-in late October (might be brrrrrr by then). My friend will be stored in an unheated building with OAT's in sub-freezing conditi...

Stopping Power

Just wondering. Is there any help for braking power for my '25? Linkage set, band adjusted but really have to apply a lot of force to slow to a stop. I anticipate a stop well in advance, use low speed compression before braking. What, if any other considerations are there? I've heard good and bad ab...

Re: planning to drive your T on July 4?

The second parade this year for my T roaster pickup is today, July 4. It's a blast seeing reactions from a crowd; old, young and in between.

Re: Heat insulation?

Good thoughts on the aluminum heat shield. Did you use screws to attach it to the plywood?

Heat insulation?

Is anyone using a heat insulation product such as Dynamat to insulate the underside of the floor boards? Does is make any sense to do so?

Am I ready for the Parade?

I've been driving my restored '25 T Roadster PU for 2 weeks now. My driving comfort level is getting better each day. Understand I never have driven A Model T before this. But I have driven on some of the higher traffic, 4 lane streets lately. There is an annual theme parade in town in one week that...

Re: Signal Lights???

I just completed a restoration on my '25 using front/rear sidelights from an '18 0r '19 T converted to signal.stop lights. There are numerous sellers for these sidelights on Ebay. I got mine from a local old time car restorer that has a graveyard of T, A and other cars. Assuming you have a 12v conve...

Re: High Gear Shift

Thanks for all the comments & suggestions. What I am finding out is the clutch pedal is not coming up fully to engage high gear, I can reach down and engage with my hand and it will. About 1 to 1/2" slop in the pedal to make the full travel.

Resto complete

High Gear Shift

Need a little troubleshooting help please.
Accelerating in low and release of the clutch pedal: High gear shift is real sloppy now. Almost can't get into the gear.
What is the fix for this?
Thanks

Continuation of mechanical inspections and any necessary repair. Preparation of body for painting. These are all performed by a long standing antique car restoration shop in my close proximity. Very fortunate to have these guys near. After paint I will install an oak pickup bed and upholstery at my ...
