Re: Old Photos: Model T’s Including a Bus

Would that be a battery/box or auxiliary transmission hanging down about half way back? My guess is battery/box thus making it a car and not a TT as Henry surmised.

You CAN mount a Warford directly to the transmission but it is better if you have the front universal joint and extension.

Tom,

It's because moons only work in phases and do not understand fractions. Anyway, that's how Kalamity explained it in his treatise on Moons Over Business.

Don't feel lost, I don't understand it either and I have read the treatise several times.

Good Luck,
