Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: Headlamp wiring and fuel shut off question

Two questions I have:

How is the headlamp wiring supposed to run in the hood shelf area ('23 low hood)? Is there a way it is supposed to be held in place in this area?

Fuel shutoffs (I have aftermarket ones), at first they worked easily and great, they are becoming real stiff to turn. I can only assume that there might be a way to lube them? I probably have to take them apart though---right?.

Thanks in advance

Yes, the fuel shutoffs get hard to turn after a while. Every so often, I close the main sediment bulb shutoff under the gas tank and take the shutoff valve at the carb apart so that I can lube it with this:

Regarding headlamp wire routing, here is an earlier thread on the subject, scroll about 2/3 of the way down the thread:

You can get that same tube of EZ Turn at http://www.skygeek.com for $9.00.

Looks like there are some type of clips on the frame rail to hold the wiring on from the on pic labeled Service Bulletin 1921. Not sure what the clips look like though....

I will try and get some of that fuel resistant lube. Skygeek says it is a non stocking part and would have to be ordered. $22 from Langs is a little excessive IMO.

I'm not sure if a '23 would use the same wiring clips as a '25, but if they do Bob Bergstadt has a lot of NOS clips. The car uses two per bolt.

Two? Huh, I thought one per bolt. Thank you for the correction.
