Re: WEDDING DECORATIONS FOR MY T

I used my 1934 Pontiac to drive my bride from the church to our wedding reception.
The car was sold two months later to help put a down payment on our first home when we learned that we were expecting the first of our four children.
We will be married 30 years in July.

I’ve been watching this thread from a distance, because my 1913 Touring has one demountable rim on the passenger side rear.
It seems that ND rims are not plentiful.
Do many who tour regularly and are not interested in show judging convert to all demountable rims?

Good luck R V!

Plumbing Carbide Tank 1913 Touring

I have read the “1913-14 Gaslight” thread with great interest. I have a carbide tank on my 1913 touring but nothing else. I am going to try the McMaster-Carr red hose for now, but can someone recommend a source for the correct pipe and clamps? Also, is there a good diagram or photographs that show w...

Re: Gouged pinion gear?

Just a curiosity question from a wannabe mechanic or maybe closer to a non-mechanic pretending to be one... If you replace a worn pinion gear is the ring gear normally replaced too? Would a brand new pinion gear and good but somewhat used ring gear not mesh as well as both new? I am in the process o...

Re: Wanted: 1913 Touring Hardware

Tim,
Thank you for the tip.
I do have one original screw that will not hold so the epoxy idea is a good one.

Wanted: 1913 Touring Hardware

I purchased new leather straps that connect the top irons with T head pins when in the down position on a 1913 touring.
I would like to find 4 correct screws that attach the straps to the irons.
Does one of the vendors sell these screws or does someone happen to have extras to sell?

Re: Rear Axle Rebuild Question

Funny Ed, I was having a flashback of stealing my mom's new broom in the late '60's, cutting off the sweeping end, and using some of my dad's black electrical tape to make a stickball bat. We'd spray paint a rectangle with both diagonals for a strike zone on the wall of the local high school (JFK Pa...

I waited thirty years to buy my first T. Taking my time and enjoy the journey on the rear end rebuild. Three years ago, I did not know the difference between a muffler and carburetor. I had to keep reminding myself that clockwise was tighten and counter-clockwise loosen. It took me a long time to st...
