I CAN'T FIND PARTS

Hello, I own a 1926 and a 1915 model T. I'm trying to stay busy this winter on my new hobby but I'm getting frustrated TRYING to find parts. I have the big part suppliers catalogs, Lang's, Mac's (Eckler's) Snyder's and Texas T's. I want to reline my transmission bands and add a high volume oil line....

Re: Your thoughts please.

While reading this thread, I've noticed that a couple of people mentioned try using a impact wrench to turn the engine over. I don't think a impact wrench would work as it would just hammer away and not spin the engine over. A'm I wrong in thinking this? bobt

Re: Tire sidewall cracking

Try not to store / park rubber items around electric motors that run a lot. Electric motors put off ozone gas. When I was in high school, I pumped gas at a service station that also sold tires. They stored the new tires in a small room that had a HUGE air compressor in it. We even called the room "t...

Re: fan hitting crank start?

I found out that my crank pulley was too large (about 3 1/2" across) I'm going to order a smaller one and a 23" belt. Sorry, No pictures, Technology is passing me by. Thanks for all the input. Bobt

fan hitting crank start?

I would like to get rid of my water pump on my 1915 touring. With a 23" belt, my fan hits the crank start. I think a 23 1/2" belt would work but I can't find anything to fit. The model T belts jump from a 23" to a 25 7/8" My crank pulley measures 3.5" across. I just want belt that will go around the...

New gasoline shut off valve sticking?

I bought a fuel shut off valve that mounts to the carb from Eckler's so I don't have to crawl under my 1915 touring to turn the gas off. The problem I'm having is the valve is getting harder and harder to turn. I now have to use pliers to shut the valve. Is anybody else having this problem or do I h...

Re: Driving with a Ruckstell

I own two T's, Both with Ruckstell's. You can make it easy or complicated to use them. This is only how I use them and I am not saying that this is correct but It works for me. First, remember that a Ruckstell has nothing to do with your transmission. Basically, it's a two speed REAR END. This is ho...

Re: Hard starting: I'm out of ideas.

I think every engine has it's own personality and you have to find what it likes to start. You know the sequence for hot weather as you described. This is the way my 15 touring likes it in cooler weather. The first thing I do is open the throttle ALL the way open before I do my choking.Then-- Choke ...

On every Ruckstell rear I've seen, The arm on the rear end faces inward and the on the 1926, it does too. When the Ruckstell shift lever is FORWARD i...
