Re: 13T - Lack of Power Above 30 mph (Progress made!) and (just added) Mag test result

Scott
Do you have a part number and supplier for the Full Flow Float Valve with Lead Washer? I think it would help my 27 roadster pickup.

Thanks

Re: Burlap sack seats?

I wanted Tinker T lo look like someone might fix it in the 1940s and lived in the backwoods. I used a piece of rusty tin for the top and burlap for the seat. When the seat started wearing, I used cowhide print for the lower seat.

Re: Model t as a daily in the early 40s?

My Model T Roadster Pickup still has a Minnesota tag from 1948 with very rusty bolts holding it on the front. Under the 1948 tag is a 1947 tag. The truck was painted county yellow. Looks like this T was last used in 1948.

Re: I am 14 and I bought a 1926 T. Now what?...

It is a system that uses the brake pedal (with an extension welded on) to use both the transmission brake and the rear drum brakes at the same time. You still use the parking brake lever as normal.

Great to know about you getting in Ts.
