Does anyone know where I could find this too
This is the type of rim it is for, I'm not sure if this type is just on Canadian cars only, so any information would be helpful, as I'm fairly new to the Model T world, thanks
As they say: Welcome to the affliction.
As I understand it, that style of rim and the tool were Canadian production only. They are not often seen here south of the border. Good luck with your search, Bill
Thanks Bill, I may see if I can alter these rims to change this connection as it seems quite flimsy, I think the screw in connection seems far superior.
What is that thing which looks like a mouse trap? I have never seen one used on a Model T.
Lol, it does look like a mousetrap, I used the model t spreader, thou it doesn't seem to work great with these rims, it seems to twist them a bit so the pins to lock them don't line up great, that may be me though, as this is all new to me
That "thing" is the rim tool for collapsing and expanding the Canadian split rims. It serves the same purpose, but used in a different way, as the Rim Jacks that we in the USA are familiar with.
