Re: Parking a Model T

No one has mentioned the fuel supply issue. A 20% grade is too much for any of the cars with tank under the seat. Except, it will keep running on the fuel in the carburetor bowl for a bit. If you don't dilly dally on the way in going forward you can make it. Pause on the way up or take too much time...

Thank you for your responses. Due to COVID I too doubt it will happen this year, looking forward to 2022, though.

Re: Happy (almost) New Year! What are you planning to do on your Ts this year?

Was planning to replace the axles in the Ruckstel due to bad threads. On tear down found one frozen and broken differential pin and wrecked inner differential body and plate. Damage rang up at $403 from Chaffin's but held up by holiday delay in parts machining. Also planned a freshen up of the engin...

Re: Driving question

One of the greatest hurdles to overcome will be to jam the low peddle to the floor in an "emergency." That move locks the tranny into low gear and takes the car through the end of the garage, over the front of the trailer and over curbs faster than you can blink.

External adjustable bands

Has any one else had a problem with the externally adjustable pedals? Was driving the 26 Fordor that I had installed these on when I lost braking. Thought that I had lost the band lining at first. Saw a broken transmission drum take one out on a car previously so thought the worst. When the transmis...

The $99 set is most likely the steam bent solid oak. The$310 are likely the laminated bows. They say the laminated are more stable and less prone to the curve straitening.
