Re: ...Holy switch, Batman!!!!!

Another amazing threat; why some want to take the T out of a model T. All solenoids do the same thing as the foot switch only activated by a coil that sucks the washer to two contacts. As someone said take cable off starter >got sparks< take that cable off the switch >got sparks now? yes switch made...

Re: Fan question ?

Sounds like you need to make the young one replace the bushings and show them how to use an oil can under the threat of not being able to use the car again. Sounds like they get enough milage out of it. You got that right 'all right' : I been staring at many idler and tension pulleys we have in sto...

Things or anything could break or snap caused by shock more so when cold. With its low compression a free start won't hurt anything. High gear lugging not good for any engine.
