Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2014: I Had Help Today?

I assembled the chassis today with the boy (grandson). The boy was very determined in his work, fought off any help. I finally had to help him lift the engine with the chain falls (under protest), as he just didn't weigh enough to get it very far off the floor. Not bad as he won't be 3 until July. We did get it assembled.
Last picture are the wheels and hubs before being sent off to Noah Stutzman

Those are great pictures. He is really determined to help especially in the 4th photograph.

What a blast. Handsome little devil too. Love the look on his face in the chain fall shot (#4). "I got it. I got it. I don't got it".

I understand the question mark in the title too.

A multitude of child labor laws being broken. He is lucky, most kids never get a chance to learn how to work:-)

Dan: looking at the Ruckstell shifter lever position sure looks out of place. It might be worth checking out as mine does not point to the rear. To me it would mean an extra long shift rod and a a major bend to make it fit. Just my thoughts. In rest position it is paralell to the axle tubes

Bill, The Ruckstell shift lever is out of place. I don't know how I didn't catch this when I was putting it together, as I've assembled a few others. I didn't notice this until I slipped it under the frame. I'll have to blame it on the boy, as he distracted me as I was putting it together (It's always good to have a scapegoat to cover your own stupidity).
Gary, The knee knocker protection will work good but as soon as the boy saw it when he walked into the garage he when over and started taking them off. He was telling me they don't belong on the Model T. I had to explain why, then he was okay with it.

I love the first picture of the chain hoist. Looks like he's gonna be building his own car before he can drive. Go buddy go!

Grand kids are great!

That's great. He is so young, he will probably think that he was born with mechanical skills. The aptitude is there and with the training you are giving him, the Model T's should last at least another 100 years.
