Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2015: A little video

Some of the folks who post on Richard Goldman's Model T Club of Facebook are old timers, but there are a lot of posts by younger folks who are just getting their first T or want to get one. A lot of the questions that come up are the same ones that regularly occur here. After a post yesterday about using an eight volt battery, I got to thinking about the question of how fast the starter needs to spin a Model T motor to get it started. So I made a little video to show how fast it needs to spin.

Impressive! I'm going to try that next time instead of giving it my usual big yank. :-)

Was that on battery or magneto, Steve?

That was a BAT start. For a MAG start you really do need to give it a good quick yank.

Steve: Nice video (as usual!).

What caused the headlamps to come on right after the engine started? Light switch position moved due to vibration? respectfully, jb

No, I just left the switch on. Especially on cloudy days, I leave the lights on to be as visible as possible.

James - Steve has magneto powered lights on his '15 :-)

Correct. If I leave the switch on the lights are on when the car runs and go off when it stops. They're no drain on the battery.

Steve, you sure do know how to make a video. And your point is also well made.
