Re: 1912 Torpedo Runabout for auction in Portugal

I don't think it is a dutch registration because AA- is reserved for cars of the royal household. besides that even in its day a model T would have been a little below their standing so to speak ;) Spykers and Minerva's were more their taste !

Definitely dirty this one:

There was an old man from Devices,
Who had balls of different sizes.
One was so small,
it was no good at all,
but the other won several prizes !

Sorry, won't happen again

Re: Bosch points needed

If the kidney condenser is not available you can simply wire another condenser outside of the distributor, it does not have to be IN the distributor, just lengthen the wire and make sure the body of the condenser has good ground contact.
