Re: Three New Videos on the "Model T Tips" Youtube Site

Re: Could it be the Oil ?!

!0/30 is great for running around town. If doing any long distance runs I'd use 15/40 or 20/50. I used 1/2qt ATF when I was using standard 10/30 and it did help with chattering. I've since switched over to full synthetic 20/50 Z-Rod by Amsoil or Walmart 20/50 4stroke motorcycle full syntec and no ch...

Rinsed with baking soda to neutralize.s it would also work if very careful not to spill on exterior Rinse again and fill with coolant of your choice. I haven't done this on an all brass radiator. Guess i...

Re: New Radiator- Shell not fitting right....

When I was putting on my Rad. I was using new mounting hardware and springs. Turns out the the springs I was supplied were too stiff and long. So I cleaned and reused the old springs .
Well,I had a pic for comparison but it's not working :roll:

Re: GOOD NEWS about 10w30 motor oil

I use Amsoil Z-Rod or WalMart 4 Stroke Motorcycle full syntec oil. Most motorcycles have wet clutches like the T. Some guys love synthetic blends but mix their own. ...

Re: Ignition Issues

No worries Scott. You are right with all the diff. timers out there. Not to mention all the kinds of wear along the system. I think most of these ways are all "In the ballpark" adjustments.
