Becky's Yellow T wins a Corinthian Award at Keels Wheels Concours D'Elegance Lakewood Yacht Club Seabrook Texas.
Becky's little yellow T was still being cleaned as it headed to it first outing.

Fantastic finish & Great engineering to conceal all that modern stuff ;)

Here are a couple previous threads from the build:

Now, where's Becky? Does she like to drive her little yellow T?

Becky love's to drive her Yellow T around town this morning she drove it to Home Depot to pick up flowers, but she said she was ready for the 14 pickup to be finished so she could carry more stuff.

That was a clever idea to integrate the brake rotor with the speedo gear. Did Don fabricate that setup? He was still considering the various options for front brakes when I was there last year.

Beautiful!

Hi Mike! Yes Don did the fab work, he also totally re-machined a new front axle from scratch and machined new spindles, since you last saw the car.
Hey Mike it was nice to see you at the swap meet.

Very nice! Easy to find within a group of black Model T's too!

Charles,Thanks for the update. I followed all the build threads and really enjoyed them. I particularly like that combined speedo drive/front disc assembly. Very nice. Could you post a few pics of the finished engine bay and also one with the top up?
Thanks and congratulations to the lucky Becky on owning such a lovely car.

Wait, Is that axle machined from solid? Amazing car

I'm beginning to think Becky is a he, sortof like Samuel Clemens was Mark Twain. Why is Don holding the trophy? Where did Becky go?

I was wondering what happened to this great project, thanks for the update and congratulations on the trophy!

Front disc brake set-up is truly brilliant. Lovely car; well done.

These are some of the pictures taken before the new front suspension was machined.
New spindles 9 degree inwards
2 degree camber
5 degree caster
same degree or close to Model A

Front Axle, changed from 0 degree to 9 degree while retaining 2 degree positive camber.
No driving shimmy or shake and no backup flop or forward flop on road test.
Dual master cylinders for independent front and rear brake systems, plus emergency brake manual system. Stops straight and true.
I'll post the new axle and spindle picture as soon as I can find the other camera. The machine work Don did was amazing and assembly was done on a jig that weighed about 200 Lb's to keep every thing in line for boring.

How do you remove the brass plate to lift the mat and floorboards?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Tony Bowker on Friday, May 09, 2014 - 12:10 pm:

Becky Is real lady, she also has a early MG TD, so she is a real enthusiast.
On the car, the geometry of the front axle has been modified to much more modern specifications, so the car steers correctly driven forwards or backwards. The finish on this speedster is absolutely first class, beautiful machine.

To remove the two piece pedal plate you remove 16 flat headed brass machine screws.
(Electric Screwdriver)
New floor mat is on order, this one will be replaced.

Front spindles, and some mini bikes to haul in the 1914 pickup bed for grand kids to ride, that Don is restoring.

Don can't take all the credit, he was assisted by White Zin. :-)

Seriously, that's some great machine work. Good going, Don!

My grandson, Kyle, on his own, also came up with the concept of integrating the speedometer gear with the disc brake. He's been making sketches and I am sure he will be pleased to see how someone has put his idea, and their's of course, to practice.
