Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: New spokes installed

Thanks to some very good help I got a new set of spokes pressed in a front wheel on the TT last night. I will now tackle the other front wheel my self. It's one of those things that is a bit concerning until you do it once, but after doing one it isn't bad at all.

The spoke ends need to be the correct size and when pressed in place, they need to be a tight fit.
Recently I saw a car with new spokes. I could not resist the temptation to pull on the top of the tire. There was a loud noise. Yes, LOOSE

Mine are as tight as a drum. Had some good help.

Steve,
Glad you could come to Tuesday nights at the Antique Auto Ranch. Hope to see that TT rumbling down the road in the near future.

Mike
