1915 Model T Speedster $7,600

1915 Brass Model T Speedster. Has 1925 motor with electric start. Runs on 12v battery with a 12v starter (that looks stock) - otherwise car is very much stock (as much as a Speedster can be stock). Photos look better than the car really is. Radiator has pings and dents. Paint has plenty of chips and...

Re: Transmission bands and synthetic oil

5w30, 15w40, 10w30 - all good information, but ultimately I'm curious if synthetic oil lubricates too well causing a occasional band slippage? I don't recall this issue with conventional. It's hard to quantify the occurrence, but this happens randomly on any gear in two of my three Model Ts. If I we...

@TRDxB2, I have Kevlar bands and good drums. I believe they have been adjusted correctly. The issue can be on any gear and is very intermittent, normally no issues when driving.

Transmission bands and synthetic oil

I know I'm stirring the hornets nest, but I have a legitimate oil question. Lately I'm finding synthetic oil is as affordable and sometimes cheaper than conventional oil. So in my recent oil change I used 5w30 synthetic (4 QTs for only $8). I seem to recall a passing comment that synthetic can cause...

I installed Riversides on my Tudor about 8 year ago. I believe they were from Vietnam. I added thousands of miles to the tires. No sidewall cracking, good wear.

I'm only getting a cutout with diode. I'm not buying a diode to repair my cutout, but may try to add it to my order and see if I can salvage my old cutout.

My Tudor engine was rebuilt about eight years ago to include a valve job. It runs great. At least once every couple years (approx 1,000 miles) a valve pin goes missing causing my T to run rough.
