Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: Looking to get the T on the road
Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Brooks Schlieben on Saturday, March 04, 2017 - 12:44 pm:

I'm located in Bucks County, Pa. Hope to get the 1920 Runabout on the road this spring.

I'm looking to have a knowledgeable T person come over for a safety check and assessment.

The last two things I am working on are hooking up a rear light which has been problematic and removing a stubborn lens rim from one of the headlights to determine why the dim light won't work.

We got fooled by some pretty nice weather the past few weeks so am looking ahead to a nice day in April?

I am more than happy to reimburse for the time and effort. Everyone's time is at a premium these days, and would really appreciate the help.

Many thanks!

Does the reimburse for time and effort apply to residents of California, as I have never been to Pa, other than to go thru there on the way to Chicago when I returned from Germany to get out of the Army in 1956
Just kidding. And good luck and a fantastic looking "T"

Thanks, Bill! Sure, I always say the more the merrier. :-)

Brooks: Just finished working on headlights, horn, and taillight on my 26. Grounding seems to be a lot of the problem. Clean, brush, emery cloth parts to get a good ground. Also check the bulbs as their condition can be deceiving. I couldn’t get the tail light to work even though I was getting current to rear socket. Put in a new bulb and it works??? Good luck. Chuck

Will do, Chuck. Many thanks for the tips...

Dim doesn't light? Switch the wires. If dim lights and bright doesn't, the problem is in the wiring or the switch. If dim still doesn't light, check the bulb.
