Just set the exhaust to .012-.015 and intakes to .010-.012. The instructions in the book are for worn cams and original set up and can give you noise valve train. Even with a worn cam, at the speeds most people drive this would work fine but sounds like you have a new cam so go with those gaps.

Re: Coil Top Hardware

How many is several? Why are you not just reusing the nuts bolts and springs off the coils? Unless you are going into production, buy the points in the 4 pack. I would think any cost savings in materials would come after buying a LARGE amount of stock, not what would be needed for several coils.

Re: Generator Needs HELP

The brush plate is held in place with 4 very small screws, almost sounds like that plate has come loose. Can you move the whole plate, with the 3rd brush still tight to it. If the brush plate has come loose and none of the 4 screws are missing read the section in the Ford service manual on in car se...

Re: TT 5:1 rear

My understanding is, the Ford Model A ring gear can be used (worm drive) but has to be machined to fit the case. The gear is just a little too wide. Where it mounts in the diffy is ok, but you need to take off about 1/16 to 1/8" off both sides of the gear area. Of course you would still need the TT ...

Re: Help getting a 1912 to run on battery

Get rid of the motorcycle battery and just run the lead from the hot side of the solenoid to the to the terminal on the coil box. The solenoid is just replacing the foot starter switch. Would be no different then millions of other T''s. You don't say if the motorcycle batter is 12 volts or not, but ...

I read it as he already has drilled and tapped the hole for a 1/2" bolt. If that is the case how would you go from 1/2-13 to 7/16-14 with a Helicoil?

If you look real close to the rear end, looks like the tire is off to do some repair to rear end. Looks to be a cover plate held on by one bolt.

In case you are going to use them, I have seen suggested to run something like super glue around where the globe meets the base. It will help keep the two parts from twisting apart.
