Re: Henry Ford as we’ve seldom seen him

Does anyone know if a replica of the tractor in the museum, has been built? Seems like that would be a cool project

Re: I thought only Ford was sloppy with their brazing during production

Dan, that pic of the kid brazing the pans is awesome. Look at the size of the pipes that supplied the gas for the flames!?! At least I think that’s what I’m looking at I always wondered how they did the brazing. I pictured a guy with a torch working on his pile. Didn’t realize it was kinda automated

Re: License Plates

Those plates look great. So let me gets this straight. In California you can use the original 1915 plates as the cars current plates? Does anybody know if I can do this in New Jersey? I asked this question at the dmv not too long ago and the clerk looked at me like I was crazy, so I dropped it. Lol

Yup. That’s the felt retainer on the bearing on the brush plate end of the generator. Is that the washer in Steve’s pics?
