Leif Eriksson‎Ford Model T Forum Sweden

1917 Model T driving around in several feet of snow. This Model T has an accessory Livingood four-wheel-drive attachment, otherwise it is stock. It is dressed up to look like a WWI vehicle. Jesse Livingood is sometimes credited with inventing 4WD. His first patent was issued in 1912. He started selling conversion units in 1914. There is no evidence that the US government used 4WD T's in WWI,

Happy motoring,

Warren

Thanks Dave and Thank you Jeff, I didn't know that you posted it yesterday. I saw it on Facebook today and thought that it would be good to post on the forum.

Looks like a lot of fun. However, hitting the snow at speed like that....Couldn't that damage the radiator? I've never driven in more than 4-6 inches of snow and that is VERY seldom, so maybe I don't have a feel for that, but sure looks like it could bend something. Still, looks like a blast!

I'm wondering if when driving through that deep powdery snow if it would get sucked up into the carburetor?

Happy motoring,

Warren

Hi Warren,

With the hot air pipe mounted at the rear of the carburetor there is no possibility of snow being drawn into it.

Have you been out in either of your Ts lately? Bill

Hello Bill, unfortunately I have not been out with either T so far this year. Hopefully next week I'll have time to check on the '17's Rocky mountain brakes adjustment. The one on the drivers side in dragging. I need to get that fixed before doing any long distance driving. I'm having help from Ken and Paul working on the transmission from the '26. There is a possibility that the accident during the filming of Ben Affleck's newest movie may have caused some alignment problems, at least that is what George King told me is what caused the triple gear bearings to fail when he rebuilt the transmission earlier this mouth.

Happy motoring,

Warren
