Re: What is your best memory with your T?

I have had lots of great times in T's, every tour over the years has been special and it all started in 1959 when I got my first T and my dad taught me to drive it in the cow pasture herding cows. I can still hear him nudging me and shouting push the spark up on hills.

Re: Questions about a Stewart Warner 280 speedo

If there is a threaded hole on the back side, then make a U shaped bracket that you can screw to the back of the speedometer body. You pic looks like there might be such a threaded hole.

Re: How to Buy the Perfect Model T - According to Yahoo

Very little Fordson parts are same as T, I am aware of only the coils, and timer fitting a T. The Fordson engine was larger than a T and had a transmission with three fwd and one reverse and no brakes until the much later models.

Re: Hi Volume outside oil line info needed.

Problem with most of these installations is that the vendors provide instructions to have some of the parts inside the hogshead. In my opinion the best way to do them is to first find where the oil slings heaviest and center the outside piece over that area, then drill the hogshead for oil and the f...

26/7 toruing rear floorboards

Could someone please post pictures and measurements of a set of 36 touring rear floorboards. Are they two piece, each one half of the width? How are they fastened down. I have always thought they ran side to side and recently read a reference about them being two piece if that is correct.

Re: Fair price for 26-27 wheels?

Most wheels I have seen for sale are not tried for trueness. They wobble and will have to be straightened. Just ask any flebay seller if he has check his wheels on a hub to see if they run true.

Re: Got kicked off again.

Even when I check remember me, I have to log in again every time I start the computer to be able to post. Something is not right because on all the other sites I get on, once you log in and check remember me, you do not have to log in again. Hopefully someone will fix this glitch.

There has to be someone out there that knows about this and how it was used. Anyone that could build this thing sure could do magic to other engines.

Can someone shed some light on what this is? eBay item number:233121661169 Never seen anything like it and it appears to be a mfg thing. It sure does not appear to be a diesel with spark plugs, mag and carbs.
