Being frugal when it makes sense, I usually have my afternoon coffee once a week at Barnes & Noble and read $25 worth of magazines while being there. Yesterday I looked at the July 2013 issue of Hemmings Collector Magazine and there was a 4-page article of a 1923 Model T Fordor from Florida. Disturbingly, the alleged Model T expert discarded the coils and commutator and converted to an e-timer. To add insult to injury, you see him cranking the thing with the right hand, thumb firmly around the crank for a sure fire injury in case of a backfire.
Is the e-timer pictured? Out of sight,...
How does it run without coils?
"surefire injury" with an e-timer, pun intended?
What I've noticed about articles like this is they tend to be a bit 'fluffy' I've not read this one, but are sure he is portending to be an expert, or just a guy who drives a T?
Is this available to read on the internet? If I zoom in I still can't read it.
It's Hemmings, what would you expect.
I read that article in Hemming's "Classic Car" magazine. Of all the (non-club) car magazines I read, this one is my favorite. Classic Car's editorial staff is first rate, their photos are always excellent and every now and then, they do a piece on a brass car.
