There used to be one of these in every parade and rodeo.
Must have a fuel pump.
So how's that front main bearing doing?
What's that, Mike? Speak up! I can't hear you over the loud knocking sound.
I'm guessing that the short amount of time the car is in that particular attitude would not hurt the front main bearing. Tipped up for a few seconds at most and then the car drops back down and oil then flows forward thru' the oil tube to the front main as normal. Actually, I'd be more concerned about the railroad type "hay-burner" lantern beating the hell out of the radiator during such "acrobatic maneuvers"!
The car is only up in the air for a few seconds at a time, and as soon as it drops down to level again, oil will rush forward thru' the oil tube to the front main as normal. Frankly, I'd be more concerned about that railroad type "hay-burner" lantern, beating the hell out of the radiator! Great photo Jay,......harold
Did it again! Looked to see if my dumb comment posted, and it was not there! I've got to try to remember that it takes a bit of time before a posted comment "appears". Sorry,.....I'll learn that yet,........harold
Fuel tank on the hood?
So, this is one Shriners group that didn't use mini-model Ts in parades?
I am guessing that the picture predates by many years the manufacture of those mini-Ts.
Bill, likely--maybe that's where the idea of the mini-Ts came about? I should have added a smiley face, as I was trying to be funny!
Ok I'm sold, where can I buy one?
I looked at one of those at a rodeo in Mont. He steered it with 2 hand brakes. I didn't know model T's then so fuel and front main didn't register. He did go all the way around the arena and had heavy rodeo barrels in the back.
