I spent last winter & spring disassembling my 1915 runabout so I could paint it. So for a long time I didn't have a "proper" car, just an assortment of parts. It is finally (mostly) in one piece again!

Pretty car. The 1926 wheels are what I would like to do underneath my 1914 touring (an assembled car). The front wheels are on. How did you do the 26 wheels on the rear axle, with a 1926 rear axle or ?? I have some new 6" brake drums that I was going to redrill for the wire wheels. How did YOU do it?

I thought there were adapters for 28/29 Model A wheels to wood wheel hubs only, but now I saw they have adapters for 26/27 T wires to wood hubs too: https://www.modeltford.com/item/2888T.aspx

The car looks great anyway :-)

Wayne,

It really looks great and shows how far you came from the photo on your profile.

Ben,

One of the easier ways to adapt the 1926-27 Ford wire wheels is to use one of the adapters Roger mentioned above.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

No they are 26 Model T wheels. Langs sell an adapter for the 26 wire wheels using the wooden wheel hub. Besides the bolt pattern the adapter makes up for the thickness of the wooden spokes.

Thanks everyone, what I've been looking for to still keep the 14 rear axle
