And get a few free starts.

The engine is starting to loosen up, and I'm getting a few free starts. We're using the original 1907 Buffalo carb, both ignition systems, and the motor is starting to run in nicely (knock on wood):

I'll load Sunday night, and start for Dearborn early Monday.

Don,
Outwardly the Buffalo doesn't look like the 09 T Buffalo. Internally they are similar. This Buffalo carb is on the six cylinder racer at Dearborn is identical to the one on our K:

Rob, Is that open exhaust Iam seeing? If the " K " had a modern intake system that would be a real power house. Great car and great car owner. Thanks for all the work you do on keeping your car going. Passing along so many pictures and info on the " K " and your family outings. Scott
