I just want to thank all of ya'll for the great posts and helpful info. My son and I are getting my late fathers '25 Roadster back in circulation. The last time it ran was the summer of '80 I had just finished high school and was thrilled to roll down the HWY as he showed me how a car with 3 pedals is really supposed to work :-) He passed that Nov and it sat until Feb of this year. My 26 yr old son was on a vision quest to get running again. With some help from a retired mechanic it came back to life. I just wanted to give a shout out to Dan Hatch and Vic Zannis for helping out with insight and a few parts and to Mike Benders most excellent Videos. Sorry I ran on....I'm just giddy about getting back on the road.
Happy Motoring,
Rod

That's what I always say when a fellow geezer is stumped by posting pictures: Get some kid to teach you how.

Tell your son there is a 250K file size limit per picture on this forum, he may have to resize the pics to fit.

Rodney, the only thing better than getting an old T up and running is having a family history to go with it!!! I envy you!!!

That is great news! And it can be a great way to bring a family together. Enjoy the memories both those you have already had and those you are making now.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Great. The Model T is a very fun car to own and to drive.
