Re: Why wooden spoked wheels and not steel?

Interesting, my 1907 Ford model R has hollow steel spokes.

NRS Transmission

I am currently going through my Ford model R transmission and I need to replace all of the fiber discs. Does anyone know where I can buy the proper fiber for this project? I have the old ones for patterns. I am a member of the Early Ford Registry but have lost my password to post there.

Re: WTB. E&J 456 headlight for 1915 Centerdoor

Daniel, the 1915 Centerdoor sedan headlamps did not use the forks, but it is possible that the Canada sedans used them. The first prototype sedan did have the gas headlamps.

Re: '16 Centerdoor restore...

Here is a video I Made a few years ago about my theories on why I believed I had an original 1916 steel bodied Centerdoor sedan. I no longer own this car but I still have the 15 and 21. https://youtu.be/mEYmXhDtpLE

Re: 1850s Micro-photographs

I collect Edison Kinetoscopes and films. The size reminds me of the home Kinetoscope film which is 22mm but with three separate images about 6mm each.

WTB. E&J 456 headlight for 1915 Centerdoor

I am in the final phase of restoration of a 1915 Centerdoor sedan. This car used the larger belled headlight. I have a comparison in the photo of the regular 1915 headlight and the one I need (on the right). I just need one to complete the set. Call or text me at.....2605713657......
