I researched some of the past topics on motors overheating on the T's and found that if the carburetor was set too lean it causes the motor to heat up. I adjusted the setting on the carb this morning and went for a spin with my daughter and this is the first time the 1914 didn't get "car sick". Thanks to all out there that has such a volume and treasure of knowledge!!!

Some years ago a friend of a friend had a Model A that boiled constantly. He tried "everything" with no improvement. One day someone suggested running with a little richer mixture.

After years of frustration and endless overheating the car was fixed in two seconds, and with no tools! :-)
