Sadly, I didn't take any pictures, but I replaced the front spring and tightened up the passenger side drag link connection.
Different spring makes the front sit a little higher. Now I can get my fist in between the fender and the tire, and the tires don't rub the fender anymore.
Next, I might change the steering gears and shaft to 5:1 instead of what's currently in it.
Actually, next order of business is an outside oil line kit.
Go for it. Putting that external oil line on my '26 gives me a bit of assurance my motor is protected. But I really should get ahold of my favorite local parts supplier and get a screen and magnet to go under the inspection cover on the hogshead.
I already got that screen and magnet business going on.
Sure surprised me how much crap the screen and magnet take out of the oil.
Finally went driving in the '12 Roadster Pickup while waiting for the high dollar aluminum outer grease seals for the '15. Two different runs actually. Second one with wife to the ice cream shop 14 miles away, of course it turned into a one-car car show. Ah yes, Christine the '15 keeps on keeping me busy! But she sure does run like a scared rabbit when not requiring more personal attention!
Restored a 1914 Holly G carburetor with a new float, gas valve, and venturi. Set the float level and leak tested on a bench stand.
Why is it silver??
Put a new exhaust manifold on 23 Centerdoor. Looking at Vaporizer on TT dump truck. Just looking. Too hot and muggy to tear into it!
Richard -- All the yellow pixels in your computer screen must be on the blink. It's actually brass color.
And very pretty. Good job, Rich!
I have been taking the 27 touring on longer trecks. Just got done with getting the new Kevlar bands properly adjusted (on another post) so today I took it on a 12 mile trip to our local country store/restaraunt. Took my Wife and my Mom out to dinner and ate a real good Fish and Shrimp basket. Then made the return trip with no problems. All that's left to do is paint the hood and Im ready for the fall Tin Lizzie tour here in Arkansas. I guess I need to start practicing on installing the side curtains now ....
Working on restoring an "era" rear view mirror I picked up from Steve Tomaso.
I personally prefer the patina but since it is going on my bride's 23 Runabout it has to be "pretty".
