Went to Shandon this week to pick up the motor. The livery is OSU colors (my niece and nephew are both in that cult). BJ put a flourish on the fan blades to remind me of an airplane propeller.

>>>I like the support box too.<<<

I like it too. The engine/transmission fit on that cradle like a glove. Greg Moorehead made that out of scrap. I made notes of the dimensions so if I ever need one again, I'll just fabricate it. I notched and screwed a 1" x 6" x 5' board to the open side for transport to give it a bigger foot print on my pickup bed so when I'm taking corners at 90 mph, there's no tendency to the package to tip over.

Took some college kids, who had never seen a Model T, for a ride. Last night, Friday, the Baylor University Men's Choir performed at our church and church members hosted the guys in our homes for the night---all 113 guys in the choir. We brought two of them home for the night. They needed to be back at church this morning by 9 AM so Frank and I drove them to town. They even learned how to crank Frank. Fun day and a great concert.

Last Friday eight coils to be rebuild arrived at home. After cleaning I found, on one of them, an inscription( see photo). This coil was easy to rebuild just need new point and be set on the HCCT and it was done. The other coils needed a total rebuild.

It is time to get the T out for a ride.

Had a problem with the water pump (which was on the car when I bought it), so I tossed it and went back to the way a T was meant to be. While I was at it, I installed a new exhaust gasket, removed the valve cover and put oil in the reservoir for valve lubrication. The HAL overhead is designed with a deep sump around the valves to insure good lubrication.HAL1HAL2

Well, being I couldn't get a rise out of anyone from my April 1st post yesterday, I'll just move onto today.

Took the pickup out for it's first ride today. We have owned it over 12 years and had only driven it a 1/2 mile when we got it. From this first mile and a half drive, I obviously still have ALOT to do.

First notably is to install the coil box cover. Coil #2 seems to consistently jump out of place. The box is all redone with a Fun Projects kit, but the coils don't have that snug fit as they do on my 26/7 coil box.

Second is to tighten up all the bands. I have not alot of braking---had to pull back on the park brake a few times.

Third, figure out the timer setting. I have an Anderson (just like my doodlebug) and it doesn't really seem to make a difference where it is.

And so much more to do. But I am glad I redid the front end, it was nice and smooth and no shimmy at all.

Yesterday I fired up the TT dump truck and hauled a load of trash to the dump. When I got there I was backing ol' dumpy into the tipping floor and there were some guys with a couple of late model Ford diesel powered pickups standing in the beds shoveling trash out. They looked at me like I was from another planet. Who would come here with this old piece of junk? I pulled the crank out, dumped my load, lowered the bed and in about sixty seconds and was out of there before they knew what happened to them. They tipped their hats to me on the way out.
King, what is that polished flathead? A Gemsa or Sherman? Looks cool.

But still went out for a short jaunt. Got lots of thumbs up. Can't believe I put it off getting this going for so long. Lots of rain predicted the rest of the week, good time to take more stuff apart.

OK, per Rich's request...here's how I made the horn blow louder! He and I have been yacking back
'n forth about theories and both agree the reed needs to be up by the bulb, but wasn't sure if needed anything "special" to do so. Well, it doesn't. I just slipped the little bugger down in the thimble right under the bulb, with a little silly-cone to hold it in place. Works like a charm, and much better sound. This one is for the '13, the '12 is similar except it has a longer thimble between the bulb and the body mount is all. (No, this is not on the car!)

Thanx to Jack Daron for a handy tip.


He told me that this rivet holding the top sockets together is made of unobtainium these days, thus saving me from wasting a lot of time looking for one.


So I made it myself. I took a carriage bolt to the machine shop at the juco and made the rivet, then brought it home and prettied it up with a drill and sandpaper. I should have the top back together soon.

Installing new "Green Gripper" linings from Chaffin's onto my original period AC brakes. Got one side done, took a break for lunch, will finish the other side this afternoon.

The upper half of the old linings (also Green Gripper) wore much faster than the lower half, makes sense I guess, since I do much more braking when going forward than reverse. I got about 3500 miles out of the old set of linings.

All done with the AC brake re-line. I decided to remove and install the brake bands from under the car, without removing the rear wheels - I don't know if would have made the job easier to remove the wheels or not.

I did a preliminary adjustment in the garage, verifying a good pedal height with the brake pedal fully depressed, while ensuring that I could still push the car around in the garage while in neutral.

The final adjustment will be done after a few short drives, comparing brake band temperatures side-to-side to get them even and both warm (but not smoking hot).

Pulled the engine back out of my '27 Coupe. It was a nearly new rebuild that I found locally. I much more correct and complete engine than the one that came with it, it just had a very loud knock in it once I got it running. Turned out to be the center main. It appears the shim stacks were put in wrong during final assembly. Everything is now set to .0015, so hopefully no knocks during run-in this time.

Duey,
The steering wheel was 2 1/2 inches over on the diameter from 94 years of abuse and skirmishes. I reformed each arm to bring it down to the proper diameter and give me some belly room. Trial and error, scrap wood and a hydrolic press. No problem :-)

Tim, I get ya and that pickup bed is looking good!
James, I get ya! :-) If it works, that's the right way to do it...
I dilly-dallied on mine a bit yester and today in the lifter/valve area. Pulled (forced) the generator out and valve cover to see about valve clearances and I wasn't happy. A sand-blaster has been near this car in the past.
Not bad but still.
I hate sand-blasters on assembled machines almost as much or worse than I hate magnetic parts. NOT strongly dislike. HATE.
The generator nose that fits in the mount had been beaten into place and I filed the bludgeons down so it fit again.

See the white specks around the center main bolt? Blasting sand. In the valve cover? Ugh.

blast2

More white specks. Not lice nits (eggs) ;-)

blast3
So I fashioned some "corks" for the drain holes and went at it with brake cleaner and compressed air to clean up.

In the end, I forgot to check all of the stem/lifter clearances after clean up... Gee Duane, ya think? Yeah, I forgot.

I filled my rad with water today to leak check it before I use antifreeze and discovered the strangest leak:

The centre frost plug looks like it has a 1/16" hole drilled dead centre. For the time being I just jammed a toothpick in it so I could get on with moving forward on the car but it will be properly fixed before I get this thing on the road.

WOW!! That's alot of red, looks like a Porsche or perhaps Viper red. I like white interiors in Mopars, I don't think a T is a right fit for it though. We just get them to dirty.

Anywho, I finally got the rear axle out of long term storage that we rebuilt 5 years ago and got some paint on it. A few more items to tend to and I can install it.




I also decided to chase a knock I had on the engine. I pulled down the center main. I did not bother to plastigage it, although I probably should have. As you can see, there is a nasty crack and the babbit has been hammered on pretty good in that area, and no shims were in the block.

I found another cap in my stash and got it to .002" clearance. and it required a couple of shims so I'll be good to go in the future---or until I tear it down.

Crank Crank Crank--- the '14 Speedster would not start after cranking Sat eve. I had finally recovered from throwing out my back cranking on the thing in early March at the Club clinic in Cold Spring, MN. It ran great that day but was a bit cold rom the trailer ride to the clinic. This past Sat. was hoping to take a nice evening ride. After cranking 13 times and not firing I started the diagnosis. No gas, yes gas, yes air and yes spark. gave up, cracked a beer and slept on it. Sunday AM at it again and no start. After calling Andy L and racking his brain I tried a few more tricks. cylinders were washed at this point so added some 2 cycle oil to get compression back. bought a can of starting fluid, my biggest preaching no no no. and got it to fire on the fluid for a bit to burn out the 2 cycle and noticed none of the exhaust ports were NOT sealed, as the 2 cycle oil smoke was clearly extruding through them. Another beer in the chair and thinking i believe when I installed the gland rings and brass crush washers during manifold install I also used the green gaskets hence doubling up which has created a sealing problem with the intake, hence the fuel is not getting into the cylinders to fire. The green gaskets appear to be cracked in a few places. Engine has had about 30 minutes of run time with new green gaskets post install. I'll tear off intake this week and reseal, exhaust manifold as well. Hoping issue is resolved. My body is wrecked in pain this AM. No pain no gain right?. Upgrading to a push button T is becoming more and more appealing but the challenge of working on 106 year old technology as simple as it is fulfilling.

I cranked a bunch yesterday too. I put a Stromberg LF on my 14 and drove about 2 miles. I came back and went and got gas and came back. I'm in denial that my mag needs recharging and I flooded it trying to start it. Switched to battery but it was too flooded. I could get it unflooded with the 4 ball Kingston but I'm new to the Stromberg. I waited about 30 minutes, then fired it up and went about 20 miles. Killed it twice, started right back on batt. Seems to perform better with the Stromberg. Can really tell in reverse taking off. I need a longer throttle rod because you have to pull the throttle up and over the quadrant for idle. It was like shifting a 3 speed into low to accelerate. Other than that I'm going to with the Stromberg.

Frustrated today. After installing new blocks under the hood shelves turned out they were 3/8' too thick ! No wonder the apron wouldn't line up. Had to take them out and thin them down. After doing a search saw a comment from Larry Smith that it is supped to be flush with the lips of the metal part of the shelf. Got it chiseled flush. then noticed my hand crank sleeve came loose. Figure that one out tomorrow.

One of my frustrations yesterday was with the Rad mounting studs. The new springs were too tall and couldn't get the too compress. Glad I didn't toss out the old parts. Had to go back to the old ones and got the rad back in place, went easier but took time, got more stuff done today and almost finished.

Vendors springs compared to old ones. Old on right.

Back together

I drove my T legal for the first time. I've been slipping around since the 90's, been pulled over a few times but I finally got some insurance and tags. Now I can go into town instead of getting there then having to turn around.

I have been sick, stayed home from work today. But I did solder two wire sockets in two tail light cups with a ground wire soldered to the housing for my wooden pickup bed. Then I got them painted up with the extra right side bracket I spent ten years looking for to match the left side (Thanks Layden Butler).

And because I was sick, I continued to sit in and browse the internet. I decided to order up a new Scat crankshaft--standard Model T.

I also just recently acquired a Les Schubert style floating trans shaft through Dan Hatch. To me these were high on my want list for a new engine build.

Big day for me, I fiddled with the T and got it to run continuously without quitting. Was pleasantly surprised that my mag worked and that my neutral was free enough to not bog the engine when I set it down off the jack. With all that done, I climbed aboard and nervously gave myself my first Model T driving lesson!

I didn't have the second gear linkage installed so it was a slooooow trip to the corner and back but I didn't stall at all (I think the low band is slipping). Only once did I hit the wrong pedal, but at least I didn't back it through the wall of my garage. The rest of the time it just took a lot of conscious thought to fumble my way through doing mostly the right thing.

This is going to be a fun summer.

Couldn't sleep so I installed my new dash light. I like it being behind the dash. Gives plenty of light without being this huge thing sticking out of my little dash. I've been waiting for months for Lang's to finally get some in stock.





I didn't realize how badly I needed one of these until I drove in the dark. You can't see ANYTHING in the car, just inky blackness. The dash light makes a huge difference. And so far I think I prefer the amount of light it gives without the cover.

Here's an interesting item. Hand cranked the T the other day after engine compartment dress up. Engine ran for 30/45 seconds and died, no fuel. Since I had rebuilt the sediment bowl thought it should work, maybe a little rust in the tank. Drained the bowl and turned the lever till gas came out to flush. Discovered that the lever is off a bit. This bowl is a re-pop from many years ago, it was on the car when dad got it and changed out. Seems that this older repp was made wrong,or the guy who made them for the hobby and vendors was not to sharp when he made this unit. seems that the passages were drilled off that day. I'm sure that the newer ones that the vendors carry are probably correct.
At 9/12 and 3 o'clock gas is shut off.


6 o'clock open ??? NOPE


7/8 o'clock Open flows really well.


Weird huh ???

I had the exact same problem yesterday. I was giving a ride to friends who stopped by and the car kept sputtering and not running right, I nursed it back home only to discover that I had to open the shutoff past center to get enough fuel, once I did that it ran fine.

Put a stop light and fun projects stop light switch on the '22 Centerdoor. The Centerdoor is the first closed car I have owned in more than 50 years and it was almost impossible to use hand signals the way the window is set up so I decided to go modern! The Fun Projects switch is a quality item. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to add a stop light.

Val, glad you like the switch also.

I also just finished wiring my dual tail lights and Fun Projects switch also. I at least now feel safer having rear park lamps with brake lights on both sides. And I am sure the idiots behind me that actually are paying attention will appreciate it too.

And to round out the installation, I decided to address the very worn brake pedal and pedal cam. Tonight I removed the offending parts. Hopefully you can see how worn they really are.

I spent the better part of the evening in the attic bringing down parts to put back on my '26 Touring.

I finally tackled the gas cap on my '26 cowl gas tank which the previous owner punched a hole through and probably used a rag or a potato as a gas cap. Fortunately the remaining pieces of cap shattered after a tap with a wood chisel and the threads in the tank were fine. I don't know why everyone complains about the gas tank, they go in easy when there's no instrument panel, steering column or pedals in the way.

There is always a satisfaction when you take parts out of an attic versus sending them up there,

Almost finished with my braking/ brake light upgrades. I installed the new Rocky Mountain brake pedal and pedal support cam.

Installing the pedal in the car required undoing the reverse pedal band to slide the reverse pedal out some. That lead to me "thinking" I could hold the reverse band while I slid the pedal out. I lost my grip and heard the band whip down into the hogs head. I managed to grab the end of it with a long handle pair of needle nose pliers, and get it all resecured with a zip tie---what I should have done in the first place.

After all that, I couldn't find where I set the transmission cover at. I gave up after 10 minutes, decided I was going to do something else and there it was. I decided to install it before I lost it again.

I did notice the low pedal shaft is loose on the pedal notch while I had things apart, not sure what I can do with that right now. I wasn't planning on removing the hogs head.

Tomorrow I will finish the Fun Project switch setup and maybe go for a spin.

I made some adjustments to the front end, greased the wheel bearings, oiled and greased the chassis, and did my semi-annual check to make sure all the cotter pins are in place properly. I also fixed a pesky loose crank pulley with a brass shim and some Loctite 609. It is supposed to set for 24 hours so I'll give it a try when I get home from the office.

In addition to my ongoing speedster build (more to come on that later), Aaron Rogahn has been instrumental in getting my 1923 Huckster back on the road.

To be clear, the car is a "bitsa" car, with parts from many different years titled as a 23.

Aaron is man of great talent when it comes to working with wood, and has the experience and tools to help rebuild/recreate the front part of the front part of the cab for my preexisting body which had been damaged in a rollover accident. I was able to get the drivetrain and chassis up and running, but without him, I would not be able to finish the project without great difficulty. We've got a ways to go, but have made great progress:

Huckster1

Huckster 2

Another one to be back on the road soon!

Today I got the Exhaust Cut out loose and wired it up to a rod that extrudes through the floor board, the hole was already there and I think this is what the hole was for. I push the rod forward and the exhaust cut out opens. There are two large flat washers that slide back and forth on the slot in the floor board. Wire attached to bolt that goes back to cut out. I have had the Speedster up to 33MPH according to my iPhone app. Hoping this gets me up to 35MPH.

Fighting the passenger side parking brake cam bushing. This one didn't want to come out after an hour fight. I resorted to cutting it off. Cut the bushing, got it out, destroyed the new one going in. This will be a battle. Tomorrow I will order up another bushing and work on getting the shaft out of the lever arm. Thinking that if I drilled the pin most of the way, I can press the shaft off shearing what little is left of the pin.

The snow plows were out here last weekend, but we've also had a few days this month that were warm enough to work in the barn. The T has had its headlight circuit sorted out...the magneto headlight wiring baffled the previous owner, but I had no problem finding a NOS dimmer coil from Bob's and an oil tail lamp from eBay, so armed with info from the forum archive, the lights now work as originally intended. The front end appears to have been gone through and is good and tight; but the gearbox was sloppy...a new gearset and pins from Lang's took that last bit of slop out of the steering. The truck came with its front fenders and a new in box (but wrong) set of fender irons in the back, the original irons having been cut off with a hacksaw just outside the headlight stems. Found the correct irons on eBay and got them installed yesterday. One of the bolts was damaged and needed to be replaced, and the only way I could see to withdraw the bolt was to remove the radiator...after I'd re-installed the headlights, I looked at it last night with the cooling system apart, and decided to yank the water pump! So it'll be a little while yet before I'm on the road...
