Re: How well will a carport protect our Ts?

I use a carport for my 1920 Runabout. It's a Levittown carport, but two sides have a "side." One is the side of the house; the other doors to two sheds. While not the most ideal arrangement, it works pretty well. I do have a high quality car cover, and always make sure there is no moisture buildup ...

My 1920 Runabout. At one time, Pennsylvania required two plates.
Now, it's just one. Have both front and back on.

Differential oil measurement

Today, I changed out the oil in my T differential. The Ford manual says not to overflow. About an 1 1/2" is about right below the import hole. I used a white clothes hanger end to measure. There has to be a better way? Mine is a 1920 T. Thanks all!
