That's Model T lesson #875, only flip between bat and mag while the engine is at idle or running slow - any disconnection of the ignition at higher rpms may result in a loud exhaust bang when it's connected again ;)
You can tell a true T lover when he has a smile on his face, even when broken down..
Yes, well ... it was my foot that caught the key by accident. First time that ever happened ... after driving this car since 1982. :-)
And,he just had to swat that fly....
I've kicked the key before. That's why I keep it like this now.
Yeah, I've seen that before ... but I was so used to the other way and had never had problems before. Being really dyslexic it would have confused the hell out of me. In building the speedster I eventually put the ignition lock up on the dashboard.
Nothing more fun than a roadside repair, at least one that is easy, and in decent weather! Been there.
LOL. I have made that repair!
Back in 1994, our club had a national tour and one day of the tour we crossed the border to Tijuana. Just before we crossed my T backfired and blew the muffler apart, so I drove into Mexico with a straight pipe. Later after we got back to the Hotel I was able to fix it by using a U bolt. I have since tack welded every muffler on my cars to prevent a repeat. I suppose it could still happen, but so far it has not.
