Re: "Pretty far-fetched" and stuff

As told to me by a local moonshiner from central Minnesota. " I was walking through the woods as a young boy with my grandpa's single shot 22. All of a sudden two wolves were coming at me. Not sure what to do, I drew my hunting knife from my belt and threw it at a tree between the two wolves. It stu...

Not sure if it's even Model T related. Bought it from a great friend that didn't come to Albany Pioneer day's this weekend.

I am a General Contractor. I am booked out through next June. When this COVID business hit, people stayed home more, saw work they wanted done, and set my phone on fire. It's been insane. On top of that, since I employ vets, I called my vet recruiters with various agencies. All have been pulled off...

If it has original decals almost has to be NOS. Restoration externally would devalue IMHO. Nice piece!

In the Stutzman thread on the General Discussion forum, Steve Jelf made the comment that something was "pretty far-fetched."

Your gears are in great shape. One tooth light and a flange heavy for Shaw. Worth twice what you are asking if the right guy wants them.

Re: Looking for pictures of Model T era auto service vehicles

Love the compressor drive on the rear wheel. Agreed! I would assume the wheel would be jacked up and the compressor ran. Photo appears to show the belt off the pulley so a bit posed. Would be an awesome build for someone! I remember the picture being posted before. It was long enough ago I thought ...

Re: 1916 Buick barn find

Well...... I disassembled the rockers and pulled the lifters “roller type”, cleaned and greased. Very little to no moisture pits. All the valves as were the lifters were either sticky or stuck. Everything went together nicely. Tried to crank engine, it’s still stuck. I think my next step is to drop...
