23-25 Windshield Channel

I am seeking some advise on how to restore the original channeling for the windshield of my 24 Touring. I am told the channel was originally nickel plated. Some time ago, it was painted over. Now after I have stripped the paint you can see that it appears to have been plated originally. My question...

Re: Old photo: New 09-10 Model Ts.

With the Horn being on the left side they should be left hand drive! Since they have the windshields, they appear to be 1910s.

Re: Zajicek HC Head

A lot of good information has been posted on this subject and I for one sure appreciate all the input. The consensus seems to be that the Prus head is a slightly better option than the Z. One thing about the Z that I am concerned about is the need by some to "Massage" the head some to not come in c...

Zajicek HC Head

I am interested in acquiring a High Compression head and the Z head by Steven Zajicek has been recommended. I'd like to hear from folks that have personal experience using one before I purchase. Have also heard the Prus head is an alternate choice, but again would like to hear from people that have...

Re: WTB Original Set of Trans Cover Bolts/nuts

Hi Steve,
Yes it is a four dip pan. It looks like I need nine 1 & 1/4 inch long fine thread and three 3/4 inch fine thread for the trans cover. The castle bolts and nuts for the Universal ball cap are also 1 & 1/4 inch long fine thread. All use a 9/16 inch wrench.

I would like to buy a set of 12 original bolts and nuts and the two bolts/nuts for the ball cap cover for the Trans Cover to Oil Pan for 1919 to 1925 for my 1924 Touring. Do not care for the machine markings on the top of the replacement bolts. Email to: DanielSnell2@twc.com

Re: WTB. E&J 456 headlight for 1915 Centerdoor

Robert,
I always thought the 1915 model sedan initially used gas headlamps, then switched to electric with the buckets mounted on the same forked mounts. Your example does not appear to have the forked mounts, so must have been a third type used in 1915. Is that your understanding?

Re: Radiator plates

Hi RV,

When were these used? As far as the number goes, would that be a serial number or same as car number?
