Re: OT but can apply to Model T - turn signal wiring mystery

Are you trying to use your turn signal system on BATTERY or MAGNETO? Most turn signal flashers are designed for DC only and while running on magneto, you have "AC" current, more or less. So, does your system work better when using just the battery? As was stated above, flasher units work on heating ...

If it were my pan, I would remove the dam. I agree with Adam, Ford designed the engine to run without a dam with the correct amount of oil in the pan. If you trap oil under the crankshaft, you risk not having enough oil in the transmission for lube and more important: cooling.

Re: Acrylic Lacquer Paint

Joe,

On the PPG site, under Deltron, under Discontinued Products, it list your paint with code DDL as a discontinued product. There is an SDS sheet and a Product information sheet available there.

With that information, maybe you could find a matching color from another manufacturer.

Good Luck,

Ryan, You do not need to calculate the weight of the beads too accurately. The beads self balance completely around the inside of the inner tube. So, where you need more weight, there will be more beads. Where you don't need weight, the beads are just a thin layer fading into and out of the light ar...

Is there a corresponding notch in the framing above the door?

Since the bodies were hoisted onto the frames, Maybe, this is a "registration" notch to properly align the lifting device for balance and tilting during the installation of the body?

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.

I sure understand your feelings and frustration. Keep in mind, most tire sealants will cause patches NOT to stick to the tube OR inside a tubeless regular tire, wherever the sealant has flowed. As with most things, there are advantages and disadvantages.

Looks like a previous owner got tired of leaking freeze plugs. He decided to tap threads into the holes and use pipe plugs instead. Guess that would be OK if you were able to ensure freeze protection for the next 100 years.
