Original Rajo 4 Valve head with new valves and rocker arms. Bill Dubats crankshaft, balanced flywheel.
New babbit, no magnets or fieldcoil. New Day timer, wood coils.
Recondition con rods. New pistons 5.5 comp ratio and rings, rebuilt dual NH carbs. Rebuilt transmission New babbit 4 th main. Rebuilt rear axle with new ring & pinion and modern pinion bearing. Straightened oil pan.
Solid original wood spoke wheels, Universal tires with lots of tread remaining. Rear Hydraulic brakes from Techincor (sp) purchased in 1985 at Hershey. Transmission brake band still in place set a little loose as a backup.
Starter and generator rebuilt. Original radiator cools very well.
Accessory 3rd brake ( STOP) from the 1920's era.
6 volt electric fuel pump, reproduction gas tank.
Most of the camber removed from the front axle which makes this T easy to steer in any direction.
While you do get a little more speed with the Rajo, the big advantage is the power/torque no need to worry about hills and when to downshift. I restored this car in the mid 1980's so it does show some signs of wear, like scratches and chips in the paint. The car is painted with acrylic enamel and easy to touch up. The chassis was restored in 2014 and only a few hundred miles since then.

Good to hear! In another thread there's talk about the engine on eBay for 6 grand+- being over priced.
Try putting together this package for 12! Good for you Gary. I knew that wouldn't take long.
