Re: Inner Tubes

Someone out there is making dummy Schrader valve stems for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. They screw onto the metal valve stems. They look 100% real. I was wondering why someone hasn't made them for Model T's?

Re: FS: Steven's Front Axle tool frame

As a newbie who is learning about my "T" can you tell me what this actually does? Doesn't the "T" have a kingpin that fits snugly in the axle and into bushings of the spindles?

Re: ISO 1921 Kerosene tail light bracket.

I learn something new every day. I wasn't aware that there were pressed steel brackets prior to the change where the light and bracket were re-designed so the light was turned 90 degrees and had a large clear lens and a small red lens. I don't think I've ever seen a pressed steel touring or roadste...

Here's what a pressed steel non-starter Touring bracket looks like.
Where would the kerosene lamp mount to that type? That mounting is three holes. My car has only two holes for mounting.

I have found a kerosene tail light for my 1921 Non-electric Runabout. I am now looking for the mounting bracket. I would like to see a picture of one so I know what I am looking for.

Re: Factory frame identification

That’s a guess for sure but anytime you buy a car with no paperwork it’s a chance proposition. Just the way it is. There was no paperwork as this car was abandoned on member of my family's land 75 years ago. He was going to fix it one day but eventually disappeared. I have titled many vehicles with...

Chris; What type of title paper do you have on this car, a old Ca., or other state title, or just a bill of sale from the prior owner ?
No paper of any kind. that is not the problem. The problem is the Chippie making a simple number verification a federal case.

Without the whole story, I’m inclined to ask why he was asking. Was it to determine that it wasn’t a stock frame from some other year or was it to determine that you weren’t trying to sneak a hot rod through as an original car. I believe some major hot rod shops were pinched for that a number of ye...

Not sure what you meant by "it has the pressed steel running board brackets instead of forged steel" I read this a '21 should have pressed steel.
It means that my frame is a 1921 because it has the pressed steel running board brackets and not forged steel.

I know it costs money but in CA it is better to use a third party vehicle verifier who will understand what the car is. I did that and had no issues when I went to the DMV.
In CA this has to be done by the CHP. not a licensed verifier.
