A fellow at the Bakersfield National Swap Meet sold me what he called a Model T Time Machine. Does anyone know how to hook up the Flux Capacitor to it?
Just set the machine to next week and the carb will be attached by that time.
Set the confabulator to "Mag". Adjust the hair spring with a Binder wrench. Press the Finkelstien button for 12 seconds and your good to go.
Richard: I hate to disagree with you on the machine. This appears to be a second generation model. This model obviously has a habersnackle capacitor (the cylinder shaped item on the left side). By pressing the Finkelstien button for 12 seconds it will over charge the Habersnackle capacitor and make the machine have very poor braking. You will overshoot your projected date and miss your 3049 AD high school class reunion. That problem could be avoided by installing a set of Rocky Mountain Brakes, or by pressing the Finkelstien button for no more that 4 to 5 seconds.
Looks like your "Model T Time Machine" is running a '30-'31 Chevy Carter carburetor.
Does it have the ability to make 'flubber'?
Donnie, you may be right. I see by the un-used brackets on the wall that both the Habersnackle and Finkelstien are off the shelf items.
It won't work, it doesn't have a muffler bearing support coupled to a flitnoid valve!
With new rings, it would probably run ok on unleaded flubber. If you are worried about overshoot, just run the 600wt lube in it and you will creep up on your desired time slowly enough to trip the M.T.T.S.L. (manual time travel stop lever). Better be sure that thing hasn't got a worn out pawl or you could find yourself stuck in neutral and skidd 20 or 30 years past the date selected.
Can't wait for you to get it all adjusted because I have a large parts order for you to fill from 1926.
LLLAAARRGGE parts order.....
