Bow Saddle

The saddle that my top bows rest on when the top is down is loose. I know there is a nut on it inside but for the life of me simply peeling back the panels I cannot reach that nut to tighten it.

Blown Head Gasket

The head gasket blew on my friends 1923 Fordor.

Something that occasionally accompanies a blown head gasket. T...

Re: Ammeter does not register a charge

The battery side of the cutout will show what your battery has as it is a straight shot to the battery on one wire. Well, except it goes through your amp meter first.

My brake pedal was a little low on my stock 1915 Model T so since I have a wooden band on there I thought that was a little odd. True enough they have been in there for 6 or 7 ye...

Re: So tell me why I should buy a model T?

Be careful. Model T's are addicting. They are worse than Lay's potato chips.
