Re: The cost of Model T travel

As far as fuel mileage goes, Thats about what I get in my 19 touring for fuel mileage. Im running a NH carb and Z head. It depends on how far I pull down on the handle but 14 to 16 is about the best I can do.

Re: Not really OT-Video

Great post, Thank you. I enjoyed it very much. He did a lot of work to that old rifle. I'm not sure if I would ever fire it though. I would guess that old barrel is very weak. Your right, That welding job was amazing. Way past what I could ever do.

Re: Stale gasoline disposal

It depends on how old the gas is. If the gas is over 6 or 7 years old DO NOT PUT IT IN ANY TANK, it will cause damage. Like other said, Set it out and see if it will evaporate. If its so old it wont then take a large coffee can and place it where it cant cause any trouble in care something goes sout...

I take my T to the range very often. The guys love it when I show up in it.

I would have to use a better scope though. Right now ...

I am considering buying a new 22/250 strictly to poke holes in paper.. Iv been reading a lot about barrel size and rate of twist versus weight of the bullet.

Re: Cost to get an engine and transmission rebuilt

If your going to do it, do it right, New balanced crank, cam,valves & springs, Either high comp head or pistons, balance anything that turns. Switch it over to 12 volt and do away with the magnets. That's just unneeded weight and a possible big problem in the future..The coils will run just fine on ...
