Re: Rip Van Winkle 1916 Touring

Thanks Jeff5015 for mentioning me.
Indeed I was quoting Bruce W. McCalley and the production records in his book 'Model T Ford"
So my T with engine number 1186232 is said to be from April 11th, 1916 (engine cast 4 5 16) according to the book.

Re: What have you done to your T in October?

Just took the chance of changing to antifreeze before sending the T to sleep for the winter and replaced the old and leaking radiator shutoff valve.

Re: New gasoline shut off valve sticking?

Even across the ocean the less expensive one needs a plier to be turned ;) - and mine does leak from the top also. Having found the trick earlier on this forum I too do lift it from time to time. As I do always some checks before driving the shut off valve is just one step more - not really a problem.

Re: Ts in London England and Ireland

I recommend a steam fair. To me every (bigger) fair I visited was very impressing and you will find a lot of old cars too. On all fairs known to me at least one Model T was participating. My personal favourite is the Welland Steam Rally - not as big as the Great Dorset but perfect for one day. Nearb...

Questions about a Stewart Warner 280 speedo

Greetings from (a bit too) sunny Germany ! A few weeks ago I could buy a Stewart 280 speedo which found it's way from the U.S.A. to Poland. Driven by an electric drill machine it seems to work correctly, so no need to take it apart. What i found on the internet and in the old forum this speedo was n...

Re: Rip Van Winkle 1916 Touring

Great to see this original state. My 1916 seems to have the original engine and many features to be correct for 1916 but also some unknown hands have worked on it in the past - after all I would say they did not spoil it. Your T (engine) is just 22 days younger than mine and about 79000 engines buil...
