Re: Do I need a pilots licence for this thing?

Dallas, I can see it now .. With everything in a line , my mind (what little is left) could only see a telephone pole, instead of a crane boom. It looked like a chain went from the loader bucket, under the car, and hooked to the back of the truck,forming a "cradle" supporting the car. Thru the years...

Re: Do I need a pilots licence for this thing?

I worked as a construction Boilermaker for over 30 years. I was a "heavy rigger" and handled many loads in the 100 ton or more weights. But I do not have a clue what I see in the picture. ??? What is holding that car up,?? If we rigged something like that, they would have fired the entire crew as we...

Scott, do not forget the "dummy axle" part of the tool that you made for me to complete my original tool that was missing its "dummy axle" Thanks to Scott another original tool is complete and back in service.

Re: triple gear pins, flywheel with no magnets, questions ..

Autie, Sounds like you are making progress. If you cut the retainer ring in four pieces and label them as to where they originally were when solid and then install them in that order on the flywheel , I do not think weighing them will be needed. As an added protection I also used locktite on the scr...

Mystery spark plugs. any idea what they are, age, ect...

I got these two spark plugs at the Springfield Mo. swap meet last weekend. I have never seen this type plug before. Not sure if they are old "era" type of plugs or some later plug from the 60s, 70s 80s ect.?? Instead of porcelain insulators, they have a clear glass like insulator. You can see the el...

Re: Layne Transmission

You still need the 4th main ball cap at the rear of the engine. I use two gaskets at the rear of the engine/front of the Layne transmission. One on each side of the ball cap. That way you will have very little to no oil leaks at the engine fourth main. "BUT" because the ball at the front of the driv...

Re: Is this an early 1926 Roadster PU or Runabout

I agree with Dan. It has the early 26 features. A picture of the inside of the door and a picture of the firewall would let me see if the early features are also on those parts.

Re: Pictures of trip to Model T Haven #2 repost of lost photos

The dipped axles were used when dropping the front end. Some of the different styles of lowering brackets used would cause the axle to hit the hand crank. So the "dip" would allow the axle to miss the hand crank. A lot of the dipped axles were ""made at home" so they are sometimes a little crudely m...
