My Model T has levers for timing and gas but I am talking about something else.
For years I have wanted to know how much my hack weighs and I finally figured it out.
I got a hanging scale from work that goes to 300 pounds and used a 6 ft 4X4, Jack, and engine lift to weigh each corner of the car.
I used the Jack as a fulcrum, carefully measured the beam so the axle was 18 inches from the end and attached the scale between a point that was 54 inches from the same end. Next I used the engine hoist to barely lift the wheel off the ground then wrote the indicated weight down.
After doing all four corners I did a bit of math and came up with 2100 pounds.
Surprise the rear weighs more than the front!
Wow Fred. It may have been easier to just drive it to a scale.
I am just to lazy for all of that.I would take it to a truck stop scales if there is one near you! Tim
That approach can be done in tension like you did, or compression:
I've also heard that you can outline the tire/pavement contact area with a pencil, then work out total contact area for all four tire in square inches, then multiply the result by the tire air pressure.
