Re: Cotter pins tips

I straighten the ends as much as possible and then use a pair of side cutters to grip the loop. The cutters are used to lever against the side of the nut so I am not using a straight out pull that can let go in a hurry. That way I don't bash my elbow/hands/T with a sudden let-go.

Re: What cars other than Ford do you own?

1920 Dodge that had been cutdown to make pickup. The back part of the touring body has been replaced, but it is the wrong year and things don't line up. I have a set of hasslers for the front if I ever decide to rebuild and put on. Missing the springs for them but they are the same as T. Looks like ...

Re: H-O BRASS---and stuff.

mark, your 310, besides missing the front truck, is missing a shouldered screw on the valve linkage, allowing it to fall down and will likely cause derailments. (not having the front truck is also a contributing factor). Portline Hobbies has all the parts you'll need to fix it, and they are online....

Dodges used the same stepped frames for many years, narrow at the front up to the rear engine mount then got wider under the body.

Just look at the lining and shoes for wear or rub marks. Maybe there are some high spots. Unless you are using them for service brakes, they are just parking brakes.

I think as was suggested on another posting, to change it out to the later magnets and coil ring, IF, they are the same diameter and will fit in the narrower pan and hogs head. You would get better support from the cast coil ring over the pressed steel. This was posted on Facebook; https://www.faceb...

Some coils have a resistors others do not. Should be printed on the side if it has or needs one, or look up the parts number. How hot is the coil getting when it dies? Too hot to touch or just warm? If the car dies after a time, it could also be the condenser is bad. Once it gets hot it stops workin...

Re: Am I "over-greasing" my Universal Joint?

The U-joint housing does not have any seals. So grease can and does flow past the driveshaft bushing down the tube, around the bell or into the engine, but mostly around the bell. Any oil getting past the 4th main washes it out too.

Re: Disc wheels: how can I mount old Chevy disc wheels on a T?

You will need to drill holes to match the Ford wood wheel hub and use the flange plate. I mounted mine with 1" thick 6061 aluminum spacers between the hub and wheel. I think 1925 was the first year for the disk wheels, but they are not the ones you want to use, not a lot of them anyway. The 1926/27 ...
