I was just looking at the computer screen and next thing I know this thing was following behind me on a trailer. Is it me or does my computer have a virus?1926-TT It is the third time in three years this has happened. Any one have the same problem? 1926-TT projectI need to correct this problem because my garage is full.

Just tell me when I can come down and take that trailer off your hands. This should solve most of the problem.

I agree with Dave. No trailer then nothing can follow you home, but then life would be boring. Looks like the perfect Mothers Day Gift.

Greg...I think my computer has the same virus. I dubbed it the "Sunday Virus"....looking at the computer screen four different Sundays, followed by a road trip the next day! (sometimes the following week actually).

It sounds like there is no cure for this. Well, unless the wife unplugs the computer.

I am looking for an original drivers seat bottom spring for this TT, and an inside door handle. If you can help let me know.

Greg,

Nice TT, you thought the T affliction was bad no you have it twice as bad; TT!

I may have an inside door handle. I will look.

Greg,
Mine too..... I think mine has taken a turn for the worse, last thing my PC or should I say tablet pulled up was a 31 deluxe roadster ! And wouldn't you know I looked behind my truck low and behold there was my trailer with the same model a I had seen the day before on our tablet screen, following us home. It's crazy, Right..?

It seems there is an epidemic among forum members.

Andy, I'd be interested in your TT inside door handles.

I'm still searching for an original drivers side seat bottom spring for this TT if anyone has one.

They Do Multiply, you need to fix them before you go see them. Take the Viagra out of the gas tank.
But it is fun you know.

Same things follow me home. Model A's and T's then parts.
Past weekend there was a Model T pan Table in my truck!

This TT is a 1926 with matching numbers. Almost complete, but not running. I just had to have it. This will be a future project. I'm working on a 25 pickup and a 24 touring car right now so the TT will have to wait its turn.

Can someone tell me were all 1926 TT's 5.1 to 1 gear ratio?

Nice truck Greg!

According to the parts book, the both 5 1/6 to 1 and the 7 1/4 to 1 rear end gears were offered from 1918 until 1927. It is my belief that the 7 1/4 to 1 were a lot more common, but you'll find both.

Can someone tell me how to find the ratio? I have looked for a stamp on the housing but maybe I'm not looking in the right place.

You can jack up the rear end and crank the engine with the truck in high gear. Count the number of turns required to move both rear wheels one turn. Also, you can remove the four bolt cover at the rear end of the worm housing, remove the big nut on the end of the worm, then remove the thrust and roller bearings. Take a peek into the rear end with a pen light and count the teeth on the worm. 4 teeth is low speed and 6 teeth high speed. Low speed gears are much more common. If you want to do anything besides parades with a T truck you will want high speed gears. An overdrive is also a good thing to have.

Just to expand Erik's comment, if it has an auxiliary transmission be sure it's in direct (probably 2nd gear for most 3 speeds).
