I think Henry would be proud!
(but don't drop it on your toe)
Really classes up the place.
Ya But I think he will still have a hard time finding a sharp pencil.
great idea, I'm going to make one for my desk and coworkers tonight! thx
Saw or mill them off at the center line of the wrist pin hole and they make a good cigar ashtray...
Then mount them on the hitching post.
Why don't you guys like cast pistons? My engines run fine with them for years, so far. I don't mean to start a water pump discussion, I just don't understand.
Wes, you can't get oversized cast iron pistons anymore and sleeving the engine back to std diameter cylinders costs more money.
Put a pencil sharpener in the wrist pin
Actually cast iron pistons have a tendency to be slightly quieter and tend to idle nicer because of their heavier weight. Aluminum pistons are better for the engine at speed. Iron pistons are just fine on a T that gets driven 25-30 mph all the time, but most people want to drive 35-45...
Here is an aluminum A piston recycle project I made a few years back. Probably wouldn't work with a cast iron T piston though.....
Your friend is totally disinterested.
Typical cat! Very cool lamp Erich...I'd like to have one of those.......Adam...I prefer 25-30 in my T's, guess I'd be an "iron piston guy"...gotta check my '12 with a magnet on a flex probe to see if they might just be iron, supposedly engine is original except for new valves. Of course that worries me a bit about an ever aging crank!
Hal, if there is food involved, he is interested.
